I stayed open to believing that no matter how hard a climb, there is always a way to let in a sliver of light to illuminate the path forward - Oprah.
A person who is pretending to have no emotions around you is a person who is living a lie to you.
You can have all the time in the world but without peace of mind, whatever you have to do including just looking at your phone, it will expand to fill the time available.
A man who wants friends must make himself friendly.
Don’t overthink. The only thing that makes a difference in your life is action. It’s taking action, even if it is the smallest, minutest, action.
Those people who are patient are the ones who not only survive, who not only thrive, but who enjoy the rewards of living in this world.
Depression is also just a bully, and like every bully, it runs away from those who stand up to it. It is how you stand up to it that makes the difference.
Build new routines, build new rhythms, build new rituals. You must always remember that you created them to help you live a better life.
Non-attachment says, ‘I will enjoy it, but I’ll realise that at anytime, it can go. So, I’ll both enjoy it and be prepared to lose it at anytime’, at the same time.
Grief is an inescapable part of human existence. The reason why many of us cannot handle grief is because we pretend to ourselves that the people that we love will never leave us.
It is a very miserable way to live life - the lack of the ability to control your reflexes, to say to yourself, ‘people have done this but I am going to choose my reaction’.
The only thing that is predictable about the future is that the future is unpredictable, and so your best bet is to prepare for change.
When someone tells you to not be emotional, ignore them, be emotional. You’re a human being and that’s what human beings do - we emote!
We see a friend’s new car, you wish them well but suddenly you compare yourself with them and you’re like ‘Oh my God, what have I been doing with my life?’
It is impossible for anybody who is really thinking about others, not just themselves, to be truly lonely in this big, wide world.
Are you the kind of person you want to date? Have you done the work of making yourself the best version of yourself?
If you want to change a habit, it is not by force or willpower, It is by replacing one habit with another habit.
People have to earn the right to participate in your life. People have to earn the right to participate in your story. You are a precious piece of the universe.
No one else is responsible for the energy you bring into a room. You alone make the choice as to how you want to show up.
Are you trying your best every day to put out the best possible energy in the world? That’s all you owe yourself and the universe.

Thank you Chude and the Joy Inc. Team. You share great and real thoughts in the most simplest form. The sound and the background music is very soothing. Sometimes, I find it hard to process insights from podcasts because my brain does a lot of work trying to process the sound and music alongside the words but this is great. Thanks again!
