Rachel Hollis ON: The Courage to Make Mistakes & How to Stay Motivated in Difficult Times

Rachel Hollis sits down with Jay Shetty to talk about loving yourself and seeing failure as success. We all need to learn to see the positive aspects of every failure in our life, to take proper care of ourselves by taking good care of our health, to sit down and process pain and grief at our own pace, and to never lose ourselves just to keep a relationship.

Rachel is #1 New York Times Best-Selling and a motivational speaker. She authored three self-help books including Girl, Wash Your Face and Girl, Stop Apologizing. Aside from keeping herself busy with her podcast, The Rachel Hollis Podcast, she's also founded The Hollis Company, a media company that exists to arm people with the tools to make positive and lasting change.
