Brandon’s Quotes

“If you are always in a state of hurry, anxiety, stress and busyness, then what energy are you teaching others to adopt?”

“If you won’t bring more mindfulness and joy into your life, for the sheer personal improvement, then do it for those around you who might otherwise be harmed by unchecked emotional contagion.”

“High performers cultivate joy by how they think, what they focus on, and how they engage in and reflect on their days. It’s a choice.”

“If the demands of your job or life require you to learn fast, deal with stress, be alert, pay attention, remember important things, and keep a positive mood, then you must take exercise more seriously.”

“If you truly want to increase your performance in any area of your life, get around some new people who expect and value high performance.”

“People on a path to purpose don’t have time for drama.”

“If you aren’t consistently measuring the major arenas of your life, then you couldn’t possibly know what the balance you seek is or is not.”
