Ever faced a big life decision and felt unsure about which way to go?
Whether it was leaving a relationship, moving to an unfamiliar place, quitting a safe job or spending a large amount of money — many of us find ourselves facing big life decisions with little or no tools to help us make the best choice.
Sure. You can ask family and friends for their opinion, but often you leave those conversations more confused than when you started.
Over the weekend, I thought a lot about money.
I read a brave and eye-opening article in the NY Times from a self-confessed money addict, and had a few conversations with friends about the movie The Wolf of Wall Street.
I also did a lot of yoga and meditated on the subject — especially because I’ve started working on my next book, in which money (especially the making of it) plays a vital role.
As I’ve shared before on MarieTV, I feel blessed to have developed a healthy and even loving relationship with money. While that relationship is always evolving…
I’ve come to believe a healthy, respectful relationship with money helps us put it in its rightful place: it’s just one of the many resources we have to offer and share in this adventure called life.
I also don’t prescribe to a zero sum world-view based in scarcity.
Meaning, if you get more money (or love, attention, fill in the blank) — that I get less. Both science and spirituality show us that through collaboration, innovation, generosity and partnership — our collective resources can truly be infinite.
Without going too far down a philosophical rabbit hole, I’m so excited to share today’s MarieTV episode with you. So let me ask…
Have you ever tried to reach out to someone and got nothing back but radio silence? I certainly have. Many, many, times in fact.
Whether it’s an email, phone call, old-fashioned letter (remember those?) or text message — there are more ways than ever to reach out, and to be ignored.
If you want to know what being blown off really says about you, watch this.
You know, everybody needs a little help sometimes. Mentors, smart friends and yes, even people we all look up to.
That’s why on this Christmas Eve, I’m honored to help one of the biggest global icons of all time.
(Side note: yet another cool blessing of the Internet — you just never know who is a fan of your work!)
No matter what you celebrate, I think you’ll relate to the struggles this fan brings to MarieTV and to our solutions.
Right now I’m nearing 30,000 feet en route to Santa Barbara, California for our year-end team retreat.
Since we’re a virtual company, having in-person time together is vital. Plus, I personally love big sleepovers — so a week with people I love in a beautiful location is a true blessing.
Make no mistake though — we will get a ton done. Some major goal-setting and strategic planning for the next 12 – 36 months is top of our agenda.
As this year is winding to a close, I wanted to give you a primer on goal setting gone wrong — and gone right.
Even if you feel like you’re the master of goal-setting, take a few minutes to learn a fresh new way to set — and reach them — with myself and Danielle LaPorte.
