“Be brave and be patient. Have faith in yourself; trust in the significance of your life and the purpose of your passion. You are strong enough to sit in the space between spaces and allow divine inspiration to shed some light. When you put positive energy and productive effort into the world it will come back to you. Occasionally in ways you might not immediately understand and on a time frame you didn’t expect. Look. Listen. Learn. Stay open. Your destiny is awaiting you.”
Jillian Michaels, Unlimited: How to Build an Exceptional Life

Jillian Michaels
“Sometimes people will hear you and be able to change their behavior, but often their behavior has more to do with their own need for approval than with your need for support. No matter what their response, you need to be firm and hold your ground. At the end of the day, your health is your responsibility.”
Jillian Michaels, Winning by Losing: Drop the Weight, Change Your Life
“The past does not define, you the present does.”
Jillian Michaels, Winning by Losing: Drop the Weight, Change Your Life
“Part of abandoning the all-or-nothing mentality is allowing yourself room for setbacks. We are bound to have lapses on the road to health and wellness, but it is critical that we learn how to handle small failures positively so that we can minimize their long-term destructive effects. One setback is one setback—it is not the end of the world, nor is it the end of your journey toward a better you.”
Jillian Michaels
“Why are you going to choose failure when success is an option?”
Jillian Michaels
“Thriving. That's fighting... Surviving is barely getting by.”
Jillian Michaels
“I am doing the best I can given what I have today.”
Jillian Michaels, Winning by Losing: Drop the Weight, Change Your Life

Jillian Michaels, Unlimited: How to Build an Exceptional Life
“Do you realize that there is nothing in our genes that tells us when to die? There are genetic codes that tell us how to grow, how to breathe, and how to sleep, but NOTHING that tells us to die. So why do we? Because we literally rust and decay our bodies from the inside out with poor food and lifestyle choices.”
Jillian Michaels, Master Your Metabolism: The 3 Diet Secrets to Naturally Balancing Your Hormones for a Hot and Healthy Body!
“Do I look like the kind of person who gives a ****”
Jillian Michaels
“Will is a skill.”
Jillian Michaels, Unlimited: A Three-Step Plan for Achieving Your Dreams

Jillian Michaels
“If I fall in love with a woman, that’s awesome. If I fall in love with a man, that’s awesome. As long as you fall in love… It’s like organic food. I only eat healthy food, and I only want healthy love!”
Jillian Michaels
“I can always use a good chest fly in my life”
Jillian Michaels
“At some point you have to stop acting as though life is happening to you and acknowledge the ways you are happening to it. Once you take responsibility for your side of the street, you grant yourself the power to improve every aspect of your life by simply acting and behaving differently.”
Jillian Michaels, Unlimited: How to Build an Exceptional Life
“If you want to meet your true love, don’t focus on wanting someone to take away your loneliness or make you feel less unloved. Instead think about everything you have to offer the right person, and imagine the beautiful, productive relationship you will have, which is what you will project and attract.”
Jillian Michaels, Unlimited: How to Build an Exceptional Life
“Here’s the thing, though: forgiving the asshole isn’t for their well-being, it’s for yours. If you can’t forgive the things that have been done to you—as a kid, as an adult, whenever—then you won’t be able to move on with your life. Forgiving doesn’t mean forgetting. Nor does it have to mean letting the person back into your life to hurt you again. It simply means healing the hurt that’s been done to you and continuing to pursue a prosperous, meaning-filled life.”
Jillian Michaels, Unlimited: How to Build an Exceptional Life
“You may be thinking, But life really has dealt me a bad hand. It’s really not my fault that my life sucks. Just hold on a second. I’m not saying taking responsibility means controlling all the things life throws at you—none of us can do that. And there are times when we are victimized. Allowing yourself to accept that reality frees you to release any guilt or shame you might be carrying for tragedies and hardships that befell you in the past.”
Jillian Michaels, Unlimited: How to Build an Exceptional Life
“Something horrible may have happened to you, but you always have a choice in how you respond to it. You have the “Why does bad stuff always happen to me? I’m never going to find happiness” option, and the “This sucks but I’m going to learn and evolve from it, examine what role I played in it, and ultimately it will help me become the person I’m supposed to be” option.”
Jillian Michaels, Unlimited: How to Build an Exceptional Life
“I want you to take a moment here and write down all the problems that are plaguing you at this moment, from big to small. Now ask yourself what you contributed in creating your current situation. Did the professor fail you because you never went to class? Did your boss yell at you because you were on YouTube instead of working?”

“If you’re still not convinced, watch what you say, because I’ve been in therapy since I was five. My mother started me at such a young age because I was really angry at my dad, and it was coming out in the form of night terrors. Therapy literally changed my life, and I’ve been in it pretty much ever since. Because of my years on the couch, I’ve gotten to know my dark side, and I’ve learned how to keep it in check. At this point my self-destructive behaviors are like old enemies that I’ve done battle with again and again—I know all the angles, all the moves I need to dodge them and prevent them from fucking up my life.”
Jillian Michaels, Unlimited: How to Build an Exceptional Life
“Pick someone in your life you admire. Your grandfather, an old college professor, a friend—it doesn’t matter who, as long as you have total respect for them and you admire their life or accomplishments. Then when you’re about to take a leap, visualize this person at your side, rooting for you, telling you how much they believe in you. Try it when you ask for a raise, or ask someone on a date, or go for a bank loan to start your small business, or do anything scary that takes you outside your comfort zone. We all need a little encouragement and support sometimes.”
Jillian Michaels, Unlimited: How to Build an Exceptional Life
“No one ever died from an open mind.”
Jillian Michaels, Unlimited: How to Build an Exceptional Life
“Demasiado estrés dispara el cortisol, responsable de producir la grasa abdominal. Los estrógenos sintéticos en el ambiente atacan al cuerpo desde todos los rincones y engañan a tu testosterona. Demasiadas noches sin dormir ocasionan que las hormonas del crecimiento decrezcan y no quemen grasa. Las comidas que omites hacen que salte la ghrelina, es decir, la hormona del hambre. La adicción a los refrescos con azúcar entorpece el trabajo de la leptina, la hormona de la saciedad (satisfacción).”
