When you realise that you can't undo the past by holding on to a grudge or refusing to forgive someone who hurt you, then it becomes easy for you to, as they say in Nigeria, 'free your mind'.
People often think forgiving too quickly allows the person do it again. The person will only do it again, if you allow them to. 
With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. When you stay in the present moment, you realise that no matter what is happening around, your life can access so much beauty.
People often think that because one is powerful, rich, has luxuries of life, the person is impervious to pain. That's not true. Powerful people are humans too. Powerful people feel pain.
There is something in me that also created the sun, moon and stars. I am special and I am fearfully and wonderfully made. If you know who you are, you won't allow disrespect around you and you won't feel intimidated by another who knows who they are.
To stay in our place of personal power sometimes means taking action that will lead to consequence that we don't like. We don't want the consequence of doing the right thing, so we prefer to pretend that we had no choice.
If you don't want that negative prophecy to be fulfilled, take action, stop the cycle. You are more powerful than you think you are.
The one thing that makes the difference between those and succeed is time. They wait. They don't give up when the work gets tough. Effort plus time is what leads to results.
Human beings love drama, complaining about things that are within their control to change. There are too many people that willingly and enthusiastically go down the road to buy drama when it's not needed.
When a person does a thing to us the first time, believe them. They have shown you who they are. Stop scrounging for evidence that they are different from who they've shown you they are.
Emotions are the energy of life. So, how you feel actually determines how you experience time. You cannot experience reality different from how you feel.
There is nothing you can't survive. There is nothing you can't go through. You are bigger than your fears.
As soon as you forgive yourself, you find it easy to forgive others. because you realise that you take responsibility for not allowing yourself recognise the boundaries to your heart and beautiful spirit.
When you have a life where you're the only person everybody is wronging and you do no wrong, you're most likely telling yourself a lie. You are likely lacking two key attributes of wisdom and ability to invite feedback.
Research shows that the usual duration for infatuation to last is about 1 year. Nowadays, it's about 3 months. After three months, people begin to doubt if they ever loved the person in the first place. At this phase, it's time to start taking deliberate, conscious, and mindful actions to sustain the love you were given freely as a gift.
Have a life so beautiful, so complete, so content, that it doesn't matter whether another person comes for the ride, whether they find time for you or not, you're able to enjoy your life. That's self-love.
There's nothing more dangerous than a smart person who can make a convincing argument about the wrong thing.

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!
