There have been times in my life that I’ve felt like my brain was broken.
Whether I’ve had too many ideas swirling around and couldn’t focus, or I just started to feel crushed under the weight of everything that “had to get done”…
I’m no stranger to the frustration that comes when you can’t seem to get your potential to match your performance.
Many folks who are highly creative and intelligent have a hard time channeling all that ambition and energy in a way that’s both productive and satisfying.
Some of us fall victim to destructive, addictive behaviors that harm ourselves and others.
Other times, we stay trapped under a fog of frustration that never lifts, unable to reach the greatness of our full potential.
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…
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.
This is a big week!
My favorite holiday, Thanksgiving, is in two days. Plus, I’m test driving a new recipe for one of my favorite foods — mashed potatoes.
After some extensive research, I learned the perfect mashies are both an art and science. I’ll post pics of my experiment on Instagram and Facebook, so be sure to join me there.
Today, though, I’m serving up a true feast for your mind, heart and business. The one and only Gary Vaynerchuk, author of Jab, Jab, Jab, Right Hook, is on the show today and let me tell you, this man does not disappoint.
We’re officially “in it.”
The season where the calendar is overflowing with events, conferences, seminars, parties and all kinds of get togethers that naturally involve you meeting people.
Lots of people. And often, all at once.
If even thinking about being with lots of people makes you want to stay home and take a nap, you’re not alone.
That’s because as much as one third to a half of the population considers themselves introverts.
If you’ve ever questioned the best way to balance your need for quiet with the never-ending opportunities to “put yourself out there” — today’s MarieTV episode is for you.
You’ll learn five super helpful strategies to “putting yourself out there” in a way that works perfectly with your quiet nature.
You’ll also learn how I surprised today’s guest, Susan Cain, author of the best-seller Quiet, with a little known fact about yours truly.
