“What should I be when I grow up?”
It’s a question we all ask ourselves, whether we’re 11, 31, or 71. More often than not, this question can create a lot of stress, heartache and confusion.
We don’t want to make the wrong choice. We don’t want to miss our highest calling.
But what if that’s the wrong question to ask?
What if shifting just ONE word could trigger us to open our hearts, our imagination and send us in the best and most right direction for us . . .
In today’s episode of MarieTV, learn a better question to ask (and answer) if you want to become all you were born to be.
Sometimes in life, our greatest strengths can also become our Achilles’ heel. Especially when it comes to our drive and focus at work.
Being ambitious is awesome. But constant connectivity through smart phones and social media does make it challenging to disconnect.
And left unchecked, being in “work mode” all the time can wreak havoc on your relationships.
In fact, a few years back, it caused some serious problems for me. And while it’s something that requires consistent awareness, I can say I’m 1,000% better at shutting down than I used to be.
That’s why I wanted to answer the question about what I personally do to mentally and physically change gears once the work day is done.
Finding the courage to express yourself isn’t always an easy thing to do.
While technology gives us countless tools to share our creations with the world, it also opens us up to the opinions of others: the good, the bad, and the cruel.
To keep yourself open and continuously creating amidst the rocky terrain of online public opinion is a vital skill, especially when you’re committed to being a force for good.
That’s why I was intrigued when a reader asked how I **personally** deal with criticism online.
Rather than just empathize, I thought I’d share some fun “feedback” from my own critics. If nothing else, I hope it makes you laugh.
Maybe it’s because I’m Italian. Maybe it ties back to my childhood and the hours I spent watching my mom cook.
No matter what the reason, I ***love food***. Like, seriously love it. Love to cook it, love to eat it, and love to try new recipes.
A few years ago, I cracked open a new cookbook and gave this interesting looking “Avocado Pesto Pasta” a test-drive. From the first creamy dreamy bite, both Josh and I were hooked.
Excited, I powered through over a dozen other recipes, and low and behold… I struck food gold! A whole cookbook of things that were:
- fast and easy to put together (no long, exotic lists of ingredients)
- ridiculously delicious
That’s when I knew I had to get to know the genius behind these creations.
When you’re really good at something and actually enjoy doing it, it’s natural to want to turn that passion into a business.
But a strange phenomenon often occurs for passion-based business owners — especially when it’s time to get paid.
You have trouble bringing yourself to actually ask for money for something you’re so naturally good at.
Feels weirdly like cheating the system. Or taking advantage. Or somehow getting one over on people.
If this sounds familiar, you’ll love today’s MarieTV. You’ll learn three simple steps to make asking for payment more comfortable.
