Hey, it’s Marie Forleo, and you are watching MarieTV, the place to be to create a business and life you love. This is not Q&A Tuesday. No, no, no my friend. It is more exciting than that because it’s…
It’s time for You&A Tuesday. It’s You&A Tuesday where the answers come from you.
Now, the question I want you to answer today that I’m gonna get to in just a moment is inspired by a profound insight from one of our past guests. Personally, I gotta tell you, I come back to this idea again and again and again. I use it to make sure that I am not living my life on autopilot or living in a way that’s dictated by other people’s expectations of who I should be. This idea is from Bronnie Ware, who’s not only a B-School grad, but the author of the incredible book, The Top Five Regrets Of The Dying. Now, if you haven’t seen our interview Bronnie, you need to watch it right after this one. I’ll put a link below.
The short story is that Bronnie was a palliative nurse who sat by the bedsides of the terminally ill for years. And she discovered that the number one most common regret of folks who were on their deathbed was this. “I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.” I gotta tell you, every time I read that or say it, it gets me in the gut. It’s one of those truths that I think is worth revisiting to make sure that we’re really living the life that we want to live, not the life others expect of us. So, the Q I want you to A today actually has three parts.
Part number one: What’s one thing you’re doing right now, not because it’s true for you, but because you feel it’s expected from you?
Part number two: What’s one courageous change you’d like to make to be more true to yourself?
Part number three: What’s the first action step you can take now?
Now, don’t just think about this in your head. I want you to leave a short comment below because it will help you actually make that change happen, promise.
Now, as always, the best cover-
Whoa, whoa. Whoa-whoa-whoa-whoa.
I mean, no funny sketches?
Yeah. Wait, we’re not going to do any dancing?
And I wore this for nothing.
Well. I mean, not for nothing. That outfit is quite something, but yes, that is it for today.
But this is MarieTV. People expect dancing.
Marie: Nope. I don’t do what other people expect of me. Today I’m keeping it tight and right, and true to me. Seriously, though, the best conversations and mankinis happen at marieforleo.com.
