Top 10 Quotes and their Explanation by Mel Robbins
You’ll keep making the same mistake until you learn the lesson. You won’t learn the lesson if you don’t admit the mistake. Mistakes are good! And sometimes, the secret to unlocking your greatest potential is inside of messing up. Make the mistake, own up to it, and find the lesson. Apply your wisdom to the next opportunity and I promise it will make for a better job, relationship, habits, and life.
Every single one of you reading this right now has a unique gift to give this world. Whether that is your talent, a skill, your heart of gold, your curiosity, your passion…the world needs it.
The power you have within you to bring it the best in others is your most underestimated gift. I promise, if you show up every day and embrace the power of being who you are, your perspective and your ultimate dreams, you will change the world.
Live your life out loud, you never know who you’re inspiring. Who is someone in your life that has inspired you and doesn’t know it?
Every word you speak, every move you make, every single decision. There is no such thing as true stagnation. If you’re not moving forwards, you’re moving backwards. If you’re not growing, you’re devolving. Pay attention to the little actions, because it’s the little things that make up your life.
There’s nothing more intoxicating than new love. The connection when you first meet is so electric – just going to the grocery store together is the hottest date on the planet.
When it’s new love – you act like their #1 fan. You pay close attention to your lover, you are kind, you are interested, you are patient, you are considerate and you are affectionate.
What’s the secret to making love last? It’s acting the way you did when love first started: pay attention, be kind, be interested, be considerate and affectionate – and above all act like their #1 fan.
Chris and I have been together 24 years, and some days, I do a better job than others at being his #1 fan, but the cool thing is, if you blew it yesterday and you like a real jerk, today is a new day, and you can wake up, apologize and remind yourself that the rules of new and old love are exactly the same and they are very simple. Act like their #1 Fan.
This is SO IMPORTANT. If you do these two things, you can have the life you want. You can crush all of your goals.
Develop clarity by paying attention to the people, activities, and things that ENERGIZE YOU. These are the things that don’t feel like they require effort. Go back to what makes you curious and follow those things.
Build courage by doing ONE small thing every day to bring more of the energizing people and activities into your life. If you want to write a book, start with one sentence. The next day write two. Do that until you’re up to a page a day. It doesn’t have to happen overnight.
Start building courage right now. Get out of bed. Stop scrolling and take five minutes to do one small thing. And then come back and tell me what you did.
I guarantee that you will fail if you take yourself too seriously. Why? Because you care too much about what other people think. I bet it’s held you back more than once from trying something new, or doing something you really wanted to do.
Failing is a part of life— learn to laugh about it, learn the lesson, and move on to the next chapter. It’s a lot more fun that way.
Tell me a funny embarrassing moment of yours— I’ll go first. One time my pants ripped onstage in front of thousands of people. I shook it off, called it out, and laughed with the audience. Great icebreaker.
