Quotes from Jamie’s Book Believe IT
“We all have a microphone that we control in our lives. And we get to choose the people we hand that microphone to. We decide who speaks into it and at what volume. When we’re able to decide who to let speak into our lives, or who we hand our microphone to, it can change everything.”
“And like everything in life, when we let fear, or other people’s opinions, govern our decisions, it often comes at the price of everything that actually matters.”
“Being underestimated by others never matters if you are following your truth. And sometimes people only see where you are, they can’t see where you’re going.”
“Don’t take criticism from someone you wouldn’t take advice from.”
You might be tempted to underestimate me, but let me save you some time . . . don’t.
“Don’t let anyone else’s doubts about you or your dream turn into doubt in your own head.”
“It’s easy to carry around old labels and mistake them for permanent ones.”
Do you victim-up or do you warrior-up? Do you give up or do you level up and believe? The UP is up to you.
