11:19 - Q: How do I know when it's time to let go, and how can I be sure that it's time to let go? A: If the gap between what they say they want and what they currently have is far apart, then it's time to examine what they believe about themselves, the kind of choices that they're making, and what they need to do to get from point A to point B.
We, as women, are meant to nurture, take care and be emotional and think holistically. We're not taught to go out and take risks, like the men who are hunters and gatherers, and they're going out into the wild. It's all about taking a chance to get that- to hunt and gather. So we're just wired differently, and safety is really big, and it can really be in our way.” - Jill Sherer Murray
“I would say think about a place where you're stuck and grab a notebook and then set a timer for 10 minutes and complete the sentence as many times as you can. When it comes to blank, "I believe I 'blank'" and I tell people, you know, you can do this once for 10 minutes, you can do it every day for a week, but the 10 minutes is all about, turn on the timer, keep your hands moving, don't stop to think because the goal is not to censor yourself. You're looking to get way down, I wish I could make you see me, to get into the subconscious parts of yourself that you're not accessing or that you don't even realize is happening, and to understand what it is you actually believe is possible for you.” - Jill Sherer Murray
“As much as people don't know what they want, I also think they don't know what they believe or take the time to look at their beliefs.” - Jill Sherer Murray
“I'm in human resources, even though I really want to be a dancer but I know this is a safer option. It really comes down to safety. It's all about safety. They're prioritizing safety, overtaking a chance, and pushing forward to take a chance on themselves, to see that big- so they can get what they really want, but if they don't name what they want, they can't know what that is, and that's where there's a lot of safety, too.” - Jill Sherer Murray
