Have you ever walked into a restaurant with a ginormous menu and felt frozen in indecision, like “Aaahg! Too many choices…I have no idea what to get. Don’t want to pick the wrong thing!”
Or been given carte blanche by your significant other, “I’ll take you wherever you want to go. We can go wherever you want — anywhere at all! Just name it,” as you flail around in your head and fail to come up with a good answer.
Or, how about looking at your mile-long to do list and getting totally overwhelmed by all the different things you could work on right now, only to waste hours trying to figure it out.
Welcome to the strange and often anxiety inducing, energy-draining land of limitless choice!
In today’s episode, you’ll learn about the power of a decision detox and how to give yourself an immediate boost in clarity, creativity and overall energy.

Every once in a while, you meet someone who is the epitome of eloquence.
Someone who inspires you with her gentle strength, loving heart and fierce determination to make this world a better place.
That woman is Tammy Tibbetts, founder of She’s The First. Tammy and I connected last year, when we sponsored nine amazing girls through Tammy’s organization in honor of Malala Day.
(Huge shout out to our STF scholars – Idda, Makesh, Maimuna, Rachel, Swastika, Mariamawit, Mary, Irma, and Elizabeth!)
In today’s episode, you’ll learn how Tammy went from selling prom dresses to launching a global organization that has sponsored over 1,254 years of girls’ education in low-income countries.
The goal is creating first-generation graduates and our next generation of global leaders.
Because as research has shown, when you educate a girl, you change more than just one life. You change the world.
While I adore this entire conversation, I really want you to listen for this…

Every summer for nearly ten years now, I have a ritual I look forward to. It’s nothing fancy or complicated.
Just a simple practice that’s introduced me to new ideas, new people and — most often — to new parts of myself.
That ritual is taking yoga class with an extraordinarily gifted woman named Colleen Saidman Yee, author of the new book Yoga For Life.
For me, her classes are transcendent. I laugh. I sweat. I cry. (Not always in that order.)
Inevitably, I walk away from my time with Colleen stronger in my humanity, more loving towards my body and softer in my heart.
Often, I find myself trying to remember insights and fresh ideas that always seem to download into my consciousness out of nowhere when I’m in her class. That’s why I’m so very thrilled to introduce you to her today.
If you ever struggle with feeling crushed under the weight of trying to be perfect, fulfill all of your responsibilities and stay in touch with the sweetness of life, I think you’ll truly enjoy this episode.

“No, I’m 100% sure Mom. When I’m old enough to drive, I want a blue van with smurfs painted on it. I don’t care what people will say, that’s what I want.”
Yeah. That was me defining success at age 7.
Though I never did get that blue smurf van, I’ve been happily defining and re-defining what “success” means to me as long as I can remember.
That’s why I was thrilled when Claire, one of our readers, wrote in because she was feeling a bit torn between a more traditional view of success (big money, big job, etc.) and the unique calling of her soul.
Taking the time to challenge assumptions — both societies and our own — is something I feel very strongly about. Especially as it relates to such a relative and often loaded concept as “success.”
Because when you have the courage to question what you’re doing and, more importantly, why you’re doing it — you stay on your edge of innovation, truth and lasting fulfillment.

Whether you’re considering a major change in your career or in a personal relationship — being afraid you’re about to make the dumbest move e-v-e-r is an experience we can all relate to.

That’s exactly what you’ll learn in today’s brand new episode of MarieTV.
