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.
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.
