Lisa Nichols is a world-renowned motivational speaker and bestselling author of Abundance Now: Amplify Your Life & Achieve Prosperity Today.
As a life coach, she has been featured on popular TV shows such as Oprah and The Steve Harvey Show. She also shares writing credits for the widely popular self-help book, The Secret.
Today, she is the CEO of a multi-million dollar training and development company, Motivating the Masses; the only publicly-traded motivational company in the US.
As a young girl raised in South Central, LA, Lisa was always wary of surrounding gangs and had great difficulty adjusting to a school that was predominantly white. Later in life, as a single mother living on public assistance, she found herself struggling to make ends meet. At the time, she was scraping by with only $12 to her name.
Lisa has publically said that it took her a long time to stop wallowing in self-pity and start investing in herself. Whether this meant saving a fraction of her income each month or placing affirmations around her house, she was determined to escape her troubled circumstances.
Over the years, Lisa has overcome unfathomable odds as a victim of sexual abuse, and actively rejected her ‘victim’ narrative from defining who she is and what she is capable of.
In a powerful Goalcast Original Interview, Lisa shares her struggles with abuse and depression, imparting the best actionable advice on how to make it through even the most troubling times.
“I didn’t see that level of sad coming. I think once sad comes you don’t know it’s coming. One little circumstance, another circumstance, another missed moment where you don’t speak your mind, another moment when you don’t say what’s on your heart, another moment when you say “Yes,” and you really wanted to say “No.” Another moment when you just put everyone else in front of you. And here I was in the doctor’s office, clinically depressed.”
Throughout her career, Lisa has been honored with countless awards including the Emotional Literacy Award, the Ambassador of Good Will Award, and the Humanitarian Award from South Africa, to name a few.
“Here’s what I’ve realized, words are power. Words speak life, word your life as a physical manifestation of the conversation going on in your head and that’s a physical manifestation of the words that are falling across your lips. If you want to create a better life, design a better conversation…If you can feel right now, something stirring in your soul, just that little something, you can’t even describe it, then you’re still in the game. It ain’t over yet, it’s never too late. At 20, at 40, at 55, at 75, at 88, it ain’t ever too late to press reset.”

Comment in full: “Whew girl I’m glad I stumbled upon you today… cause I’m sitting here in my 30’s, loving my family but feeling more alone than any stage in my life thus far. I never thought 30’s would be harder than my teens, but friendships & relationship building is harder! I’ve got more acquaintances than I know what to do with but could I call on them when in need? Doubtful. It’s time to hit reset & get back to basics”

Thank you for the reminder that it doesn’t matter, as long as I am good enough for ME and love myself. Thank you for showing how easy it can be as well to fall for one small thing after another until you open your eyes and wonder how you go there.”
