Burnt Out vs. Time for a Change

Imagine this . . .

You love what you do and you’re successful at it: making money, great clients, great team, etc. For years, you’ve worked your buns off to make this dream come to life.

But here’s the problem.

Something’s changed. You don’t feel excited about what you do anymore.

Most days, you feel kind of down and lost. And the truth is that you’ve been feeling this way for longer than you care to admit!

So what do you do?

And how can you tell the difference between normal burnout vs. a sign that it’s time for a big change in your career?

The Downside Of Gratitude

Before we dive into this week’s MarieTV episode, I have to tell you how amazing you are.

Your support of my appearance with Oprah on Super Soul Sunday was absolutely staggering.

Have you ever felt like you have a ton of potential inside, but you’re not able to fully actualize it out into the world?

If you’re human, that answer should be yes.

That was true for me for yeeeears and I remember the deep frustration and pain I felt.

I’d cry, pray, journal for help. I was looking for a breakthrough. Something to help me find my way in this world.

To feel ambition and to act upon it is to embrace the unique calling of our souls. @SPressfield Click To Tweet

How To Deal With Jealousy & Being Intimidated By Another’s Success

First up, THANK YOU for your incredible support last week during Hurricane Sandy.

In the West Village we were without power, cell service and heat all week, but things got back on track over the weekend.

I’m deeply grateful to be safe and for your notes of love and concern via email, Twitter and Facebook.

Friends took great care of us and we were extremely lucky. In fact, I had some of the most rich and enjoyable experiences that I’ve had in years (limited access to technology tends to do that!).

However, the devastation from this storm, like all natural disasters in recent years, has left tens of thousands of people homeless. It’s demolished places I love dearly so please continue to send your prayers and support to the folks who truly need it.

Now onto today’s episode, which is something I think we can all relate to: feeling jealous.
