11:46 Yong’s former people-pleasing ways
12:09 “It's okay just to be you. In being you, the right people are going to be attracted to you. And the reality is that not everyone will like you.” - Yong Pratt
13:03 “At the end of the day, it's our job to show up authentically, and create content that speaks to those that we want to serve and that also serves us in return. In this life, it's our obligation to speak our truth, to be our real selves, and to amplify everything that makes us awesome even if that means we don't get hired.” - Yong Pratt
13:39 “Those people that need convincing will never become a client of yours, or mine.” - Yong Pratt
14:05 The absolute Yong believes we all need to abolish
15:02 “Convincing someone to do something or invest in someone they don't believe in is a game that you can't win. Focus instead on serving, sharing your gifts and amplifying your awesome, even if not everyone will see or appreciate your awesomeness.” - Yong Pratt
15:40 “In this digital economy, there's no room for hiding. There's no room for being wishy washy. There's no room for accommodating others if that means you have to be someone else to make that happen.” - Yong Pratt
15:58 Just be you.
16:12 “It's time for the world to see you in all your awesome glory. It's time to embrace your you-ness 100%. It's time to appreciate your own gifts, your superpowers, your weird, so that you can truly and authentically Amplify Your Awesome™!” - Yong Pratt

18:16 “Don't forget, it's not your job to convince people to work with you. Instead, stand confidently in who you are, how you serve, and allow your awesome to shine through in the content that you share.” - Yong Pratt
