Power Quotes From The Show


Everything You Have Is Enough


"If you take the time to get deep with what you really need, whether you're alone or in a relationship, it creates peace inside of you that you've never felt before and you start realizing that everything you have is enough and everything you don't have is just waiting to show up in your life when you're willing to receive it." - Aleks Rybchinskiy


The Truth About Mastery


"Have I mastered what I'm feeling? How I approach the world? How I relate to the world? How I connect to the world? If the answer is, 'no,' then I just keep trying because that's my ultimate goal. That's the beauty of the world of health and wellness. There is 'mastery' but it can never be mastered because it's always changing." - Aleks Rybchinskiy


How Inner Work Helps Parents Raise Children

"Children are their own separate entities that parents are in charge of until they grow up and hopefully you're guiding them properly so they can relate to the world, contribute to the world, feel happiness, and know how to process their anger and sadness. For me, I've had to take a really hard look at myself to know where I need help so that I can show my children how it's done. Kids don't listen to what you say, they watch what you do and then do that." - Aleks Rybchinskiy
