Do you ever struggle to find time for friends because you’re busy changing the world… or simply trying to keep it all together?
If so, you’re not alone. Friendship guilt is a common issue for ambitious creators.
No matter what stage of the journey you’re at, when you’ve got a fire inside of you to create something new and meaningful, the truth is — building something from the ground up takes time.
And typically more time than most people (including ourselves!) expect.
Add in our other responsibilities (i.e. full-time job, school, sig. other, kids and fur babies) and it’s understandable that quality friend-time somehow gets relegated to the back-burner.
But is that just how it is? Is there a way to give our best to our creative quests, keep the basics of life running and still have quality time with friends too? That’s exactly what we’re diving into this week on MarieTV.
Are you secretly jealous of someone who seems to “have it all”? Doesn’t matter how experienced or spiritual you believe you are. We human beings are, after all, are human.
Translation? We all slip into this envy state every now and again. It happens at every level of ‘success’ and every stage of our evolving consciousness.
In today’s episode of MarieTV, get the good news about your envy, and how you can use it to fuel you.
Have you ever experienced a setback or failure and had a tough time regaining your confidence?
An actor friend recently confessed, “I had this really, really awful experience on set 4 months ago and I haven’t been able to recover since. The director yelled at me in front of the whole crew. I lost my lines and couldn’t deliver what he wanted. It was a nightmare. It’s like a record scratch in my psyche and I can’t seem to get over it.”
My heart broke for her. She’s experienced and talented. She’s open hearted and self-aware. But no matter what she’s tried, this one creative catastrophe crushed her confidence, and her ability to fully get back in the game.
We’re all sensitive souls. Sometimes seemingly minor setbacks that our minds tell us should be “no big deal” can sink our self-confidence and hold us back from our dreams.
If you, or anyone you know, has trouble regaining their confidence after a failure, you’ll really appreciate today’s episode with the brilliant Dr. Cathy Collautt.
I’ll admit it. I’m a sucker for poo jokes.
Yes. I know it’s not the most sophisticated topic in the world but then again, I never said I was the most sophisticated person. But stick with me for a minute…
Because if a brand that focuses on poo can accurately be described like this:
Courageous. Joyful. Undeniably Useful.
There’s some creative magic happening that’s worth paying attention to.
In today’s episode you’ll discover three inspiring lessons from a small brand that’s causing a big stink in the marketplace. I really think you’ll appreciate their inventiveness, humor and unwavering commitment to keep doing what they do best.
This is a big, exciting week in my neck of the woods. Right now, we’re in our Team Forleo summer retreat.
Since we’re a virtual company, it’s important for us to have in person time to connect and collaborate. Plus, we’re a cozy bunch of creative folk and crave long hugs and lingering conversations over delicious meals.
During these meetings, we come up with ideas and make decisions that impact the entire direction of the company and, quite often, my life.
Without a doubt, the capacity we call upon the most to make those decisions is our intuition. How we instinctively feel about an idea, possibility or direction.
Of course, we also do our due diligence, we run projections, we research and we get the facts.
But at the end of the day, the driving force behind our business (and my life) comes from listening to that inner, instinctual voice. That natural knowing that isn’t bound by logic, fear or past experience.
