Relax. Be present. Enjoy this moment. Be here now.
Does that advice ever irritate the heck out of you — especially when you have a to-do list a mile long?
Even if you don’t get annoyed by the “be present” advice, you might feel confused by it.
Because most of us get that — in theory — being fully present is great for our brains, souls and relationships, but some of us wonder…
How the heck am I supposed to “be present” and still exist in the real world that constantly requires me to look ahead and plan my future?
If you want a simple trick to train yourself to be in the now and exist in the real world, you’re gonna love today’s episode.
Ever experienced something like this?
You: “Mom, you should read this book. It’s totally life-changing. It’ll help you be happier and less negative and judgmental.”
Your Mom: “Who the heck says I’m negative and judgmental?! Maybe if you listened to me more and actually did something useful with your life…”
When you find yourself growing by leaps and bounds after discovering self-help, it’s natural to feel an urge to share it with everyone — especially people you think could really use it.
But as you may have discovered, spreading the good word ain’t always welcomed.
In fact, sharing anything in the realm of personal development can spark fights and cause some major relationship problems.
Devastating heartbreak. Sudden illness. Unexpected departures.
Whether it’s a business challenge or a personal situation, tough times happen for everyone.
Trying to “stay positive” and “keep the faith” can feel almost impossible. And no matter how strong we think we are, unforeseen change can leave us all feeling quite vulnerable and lost.
That’s why it’s important to remember that even though you may feel helpless — you’re not.
On today’s episode of MarieTV you’ll be reminded of four simple concepts and practices that can be your lifeline back to normalcy — especially when everything around you is far from it.
(Ironically, you’ll see how we dealt with a few unexpected challenges of our own while on set shooting this episode!)
Have you ever felt blindsided?
Like a situation appeared in your business or life that threw things into a tailspin and suddenly all of your options to move ahead seem, well…
Sooner or later, we all find ourselves in the midst of a challenging situation and can feel ill-equipped to move forward.
When the proverbial dookie hits the fan, many of us react in one of two ways. Either:
1. We freeze up and become unwilling to make any decision — hoping that somehow, someway, everything will “magically” take care of itself (which it rarely does).
2. We make a series of rash decisions from a place of anger or fear, triggering even more seemingly sucky problems than we had in the first place.
Thankfully, there is a third option.
Have you ever been in a really tough spot in your life and a book practically saves you?
Years ago, when I broke off an engagement and found myself struggling to grow my new business, one woman’s words made all the difference to me.
Her book was a real turning point — and I’ll never forget it.
Little did I know that a few years later, I’d have the chance to thank her personally for writing what was one of the most important books in my life, A Return To Love.
While I was in Los Angeles this winter, I had the honor of sitting down with the legendary author, Marianne Williamson to dive deep into her latest book — The Law of Divine Compensation. On Work, Money and Miracles.
Join us as we dive deep into the hot button topic of money, career and doing what you’re meant to do in this world.
