Gabby Bernstein is a New York Times bestselling author and an international motivational speaker.

What I love the most about her is her authenticity.

In her books and talks, she gets real about her life experiences, her struggles and fears, but also about her success. Gabby gives her readers insight into how she turned her life around.

She discusses drug addiction, childhood issues, family, business, anxiety—topics that can affect us all.

Here are 40 of Gabby’s inspirational quotes that might help you change your perception and create a more positive mindset:

1. “When we all get real, the world will heal.”

2. “Worry is a prayer to chaos.”

3. “Our happiness, success, and safety can be measured by our genuine capacity to tune in to the loving vibration of the universe.”

4. “True abundance is an inside job.”

5. “Love can seem far scarier to us than fear. We’re terrified to let love in, because we fear that when we do, we’ll be susceptible to more pain.”

6. “When we give time to a quieting experience, we have a different life because we have a different nervous system.”

7. “When we fulfill our function, which is to truly love ourselves and share love with others, then true happiness sets in.”

8. “I’ve learned that fear is simply an illusion based on past experiences that we project into the present and onto the future.”

9. “Much of our anxiety and stress comes when we’re focused on fear and disconnected from the voice of our inner guide.”

10. “I learned that real happiness doesn’t come from getting but from giving.”

11. “So much of what holds us back in life are the long-held resentments stemming from childhood.”

12. “Trust that your wounds are exactly as the universe planned. They were divinely placed in your life in the perfect order so that you could show up for them with love and remember the light within.”

13. “Whenever you notice your thoughts detour into attack mode, say out loud or to yourself: Happiness is a choice I make.”

14. “In every situation you have two choices: Will you learn through fear or will you learn through love?”

15. “We sense love, but we don’t believe in it. We save our faith for fear. But ultimately, there is a quiet voice in each of us that longs for something better.”

16. “Our problem is that we choose to deny love. In fact, we only have one problem: that our mind chooses fear over love.”

17. “Praying is the time to ask and meditating is the time to listen.”

18. “We are not responsible for what our eyes are seeing. We are responsible for how we perceive what we are seeing.”

19. “Forgiveness tears down the ego’s walls of separation and reunites us as one. The anger and fear of the ego’s illusion disappear. There’s no more ‘he said, she said.’ It all just lifts. It feels as though chains have been removed and you’ve been set free from a lifetime of terror. Why continue rehearsing the role of victim when you could be free and happy?”

20. “When we surrender our will to the power of the Universe, we receive miracles.”

21. “When we chase happiness externally, we’re simply looking for God in all the wrong places.”

22. “Your presence is your power. Be mindful of how your thoughts, words, and energy disconnect you from the universe. And know the difference between what it feels like to be connected to the presence of your power versus what it feels like when you’re not.”

23. “If my environment dictates my mood, then my life will feel like a roller coaster. The way to steady ground is through my breath.”

24. “It’s the journey that matters, not the destination”

25. “Judgment is the number one reason we feel blocked, sad, and alone. Our popular culture and media place enormous value on social status, looks, racial and religious separation, and material wealth. We are made to feel less than, separate, and not good enough, so we use judgment to insulate ourselves from the pain of feeling inadequate, insecure, or unworthy. It’s easier to make fun of, write off, or judge someone for a perceived weakness of theirs than it is to examine our own sense of lack.”

26. “To begin your commitment to new perceptions, start by paying attention to attack thoughts toward yourself and others. Whenever you notice your thoughts detour into attack mode, say out loud or to yourself: Happiness is a choice I make. Make this your mantra.”

27. “Relationships are assignments for optimal growth and healing.”

28. “Your purpose is to be joyful. Your purpose is to live with ease. Your purpose is to surrender to the love of the universe so you can live a happy life. Accept the purpose of love, and your life will radically change this instant.”

29. “I step back and let the Universe lead the way.”

30. “Whenever we place our happiness and peace in anything outside of ourselves, we’ll inevitably feel unfulfilled and stuck.”

31. “You see the world that you have made, but you do not see yourself as the image-maker.”

32. “Instead of obsessing about the outcome, focus on how you want to feel.”

33. “The root cause of all judgment is the fear of not being good enough, not being worthy of love, and not being safe.”

34. “Remember: If we were happy and complete, we wouldn’t judge.”

35. “You see, the way we experience the world around us is a direct reflection of the world within us. If our thoughts and energy are not supportive, then our life won’t be supported. Therefore, we must take responsibility by consciously supporting ourselves in every given moment.”

36. “There are no accidents in salvation. Those who are to meet will meet, because together they have the potential for a holy relationship. They are ready for each other.”

37. “In response to this desolation, you’ll judge the special person for not being who you thought (or hoped) they were. When your idol falls, you fall with them. Whenever we believe anyone to be the source of our happiness or pain, we ultimately project our guilt onto them and begin the judgment cycle.”

38. “The reason so many people feel unhappy, unsuccessful, and unsafe is they forgot where their true happiness, success, and safety lie. Remembering where your true power lies reunites you with the universe so that you can truly enjoy the miracles of life. And, most important, so your happiness can be an expression of joy that elevates the world.”

39. “When you dwell in an energy of positivity and power, you become a magnet for miracles.”

40. “Those who are certain of the outcome can afford to wait and wait without anxiety.”
