Doreen Rainey Quotes from the show:
“Be willing to let go of good in order to experience great.”
“When your great becomes ‘good’ it’s time to let go of it and moving on to your next great.”
“All money isn’t good money.” “Your shift comes in the doing.”
“The shifts never end.”
“My soul sings when I do personal transformation.”
“We all have defaults that we have to learn how to shift out of. When your subconscious mind is in control, your default will write a check that your soul doesn’t want to cash.”
“It’s easy to make a shift when you are frustrated with something. It’s a different effort to shift because of your calling.”
“Acknowledge that your head and soul are at odds. The head always makes sense and affects both faith and action.”
“It’s easier to shift while you’re moving than you be at a complete stop trying to shift.”
“Life is a series of shifts.”
Questions to ask yourself when you’re in the midst of a shift:
- How long am I going to do something that doesn’t make my soul sing?
- Is it a head decision or a heart decision driving the activity you’re doing?
