Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, "Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it within us or we find it not." What that means, Dr. Robin says, is that true beauty, self-worth and self-esteem come from within—not from the outside world.
If you're searching and scanning the world trying to find the right person, the right job or the right opportunity to make you feel whole, Dr. Robin says you simply won't find it. "I want you to find that being beautiful and being enough and being sufficient and being of value and worth comes from within," she says.
Only when we look within, Dr. Robin says, can we truly create and own a life that can't be shaken or taken away from us. "Your rescuer has been standing beside you and within you just waiting for you to turn away from the world as your source," she says. "Turn and look within, realizing that what you need, you already have—that's the real you."
