Crocuses are in full force right now, the weather is finally breaking here in New York City and — a brand new season of Game Of Thrones has just premiered!
Life is good, and I’m grateful.
But when I think back to my earlier self, I often had a hard time enjoying simple pleasures because so much of my mental and emotional energy was focused (umm, obsessed) with figuring out my life’s passion.
In other words, I spent an extraordinary amount of energy trying to figure out exactly what I was supposed to do with my life.
After much self-torture, buckets of tears, loads of “tests” and hundreds of hours of research, I thankfully came to some useful realizations around this idea of finding one’s passion.
If you’ve ever struggled to find your passion in life, today’s episode of MarieTV was made for you.
Waking up in a pool of your own blood isn’t something most of us aspire to.
But when you constantly push beyond your limits in an effort to “get ahead” that’s exactly where you might wind up.
Combine our change-the-world ambitions with a diligent work ethic and 24/7 technology, and we’ve got a recipe for chronic exhaustion.
That’s why it’s so important to me that you watch today’s episode of MarieTV.
My guest is the legendary Arianna Huffington, author of the new book Thrive, and she’s here to help us redefine success on our own terms.
It all started in the club.
The music was thumping, the strobe lights were popping and this guy and I were pretty much shouting at each other.
While other tipsy clubgoers stumbled past us, I made him a promise. “One day we’re going to do something great together.”
Fast forward four years. We’re building three schools with that guy I met in the club — Adam Braun — and his incredible organization, Pencils of Promise.
Our school in Laos is complete and has 76 kids registered. The other two schools are still being constructed. And in four short years, my dear friend Adam Braun has launched a global revolution.
If you ever feel like you’re meant for more in this life but you doubt that one person can make a difference, you’re going to love today’s episode.
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.
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.
