Get Free Tips to Kick Ass in Business and Life

Doesn’t matter what you might be dreaming of.

If any part of you longs to make and do really cool things in this world — write, paint, cook, dance, sing, speak, produce, code, act, bake, or just bedazzle your toothbrush…

Today’s show is an absolute must watch.

It’s a treasure map to unleash your most creative and expressive life. And our tour guide is none other than the legendary Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear. Here’s just a sampling of the gems you’re about to discover:

  • The unconventional (and very specific) thing to say and do when fear tries to stop you from taking inspired risks
  • The contract Liz made with her creativity long ago and why it’s made all the difference
  • Why you shouldn’t try to “help” anyone with your art and what to focus on instead
  • The vital distinction between originality and authenticity and how to manage “it’s all been done before” syndrome
  • How to know whether or not you’re on the right creative path

Plus, if you’ve ever had the pleasure of seeing Liz speak (tens of millions have watched her Ted Talks and I’ve had the honor of seeing her move a stadium full of folks to tears), pay extra attention around the 25 minute mark.

Ahh, the power of being consistent.

It’s heralded as the strategy for achieving long-term greatness in almost any category: your body, business, art, relationships, emotional health or spirituality.

The problem? It’s the one thing we mortals can struggle with the most — especially when we’re trying to improve, well, anything.

Like it or not, being consistent is essential if you want to make any significant change in your life. It’s also a must have skill if you’re looking to kick some serious ass and become world-class.

That’s why I was happy to tackle this subject to help Kat, who wrote in because she’s struggling with her ability to stay on track. While I’m not perfect, I have been able to master consistency in a few key areas and, I gotta say, it’s made all the difference in the world.

Ever have one of those days where it seems like things just keep going wrong?

Sure, you’re still breathing. But beyond that, it’s a sh*t show. Problems start stacking up like hotcakes. No matter which way you turn, things seem to get worse.

I had one of those days earlier this year, and it was not cute. In fact, I got so heated on the phone that my ever-so-insightful-and-supportive man Josh came into the room to make sure everything was O.K. (Hey – I’m Italian and from NJ. I can be, shall we say, very expressive at times!)

Turns out, that highly-annoying afternoon gave birth to a highly-effective strategy to deal with stress. Best part? I’m still using this tool, over 6 months later, and it works like a charm.

When this week’s question came in, it gave me a chuckle.

Mostly because it speaks to something we can all feel at times: exhausted from constantly striving to improve ourselves.  

Whether it’s a new diet, journaling practice, or “mental hack” to boost our productivity — these days, it seems like there’s always something new we should be doing to improve our lives.

Which raises a valid question.

You might wonder, “Can’t I just coast for a little bit? Isn’t it OK to live my life without constantly trying to make it better? Is there a downside to all this inspiration?”

If you’ve ever wanted a little breather from self-improvement, I think you’ll really appreciate today’s show. (And yes, I get the irony.)

We’re baaack!

From our summer holiday, that is.

Gotta say, it was a blissful two weeks. I basically did a stay-cation and Josh and I split our time between the beach and then totally off the grid (no cell service or internet) in the country.

I made some interesting discoveries, too.

It took me 2 days to completely shift out of work mode and into vacation mode, which is a huge improvement over my last extended break. (That time took me about 6 days). My time off was mostly filled with reading, bike rides, movie nights and, one of my favorite pastimes, cooking loads of great meals.

I also did a 10 day detox (no sugar, gluten or dairy — which is impressive for a woman who loves cheese and wine as much as I do!) and could not believe the difference it made.

Time off was extremely rejuvenating, and I’m thrilled to be back to share today’s MarieTV with you.

There’s never been a better time to grow an audience for your products, services and ideas. But with so much noise out there, what’s the key to not only stand out — but to create real and lasting impact through your work?
