You have gifts to share with the world and my job is to help you get them out there.read more
This has been the most epic B-School scholarship contests we’ve done yet.
Emotionally, it’s been really challenging. We’re big-hearted, sensitive folks and we care very deeply about what we do and who we serve. There’ve been lots of tears, smiles, heavy hearts, and laughter over the past week.
Most of all, there’s been an expanding well of shared love and respect. Thank you for being so brave, so creative and so passionate — and sharing who you are with us and the world.
Thank you for so wholeheartedly supporting each other, and being kind and incredible in our community.
We’ve watched close to 2,000 entries and have made our selections for this year. Before I get to the recipients, I want to share a few things. Most importantly:
Your dreams aren’t made, or broken, by anyone but you. You are enough. You have wisdom within you that you can never learn in any text book, classroom or program. You are creative, and loved and divinely blessed with capabilities beyond what you can imagine.
Not receiving a scholarship to B-School, nor any other disappointment in life can stop you from continuing to expand the greatness you already have within, unless you let it.
Whether B-School becomes a part of your world or not, know how much of a winner you are right now, and how deeply I respect you.
I respect your courage. I respect your bravery. I respect you for being an action taker and for setting your fears and insecurity aside to express yourself — fully and authentically.
I respect your focus, determination and willingness to get it done. I respect you for figuring out technology, and for the take after take after take it often TAKES to put up a stinkin’ 90 second video ;).
And if you let me, I’ll love to continue to support you — week after week for free via MarieTV — doing my very best to inspire you and provide encouragement, wisdom, strategies and tools to keep you moving powerfully ahead.
You are brave, creative and beautiful — inside and out. You were born with everything you need to answer the call of your soul. Don’t ever forget it.
