"Hey it's Marie Forleo and welcome to another episode of the Marie Forleo podcast. You know, the holiday season is really a beautiful time of year and it's also the time of year that can kick up a lot of stuff. I mean, maybe you're feeling some stress around all the work you need to get done before the end of the year. Or maybe you're dealing with challenges around your family or your health or maybe you're like Sasha, who you're gonna hear from today, who's wondering, where exactly she fits into this world and whether or not she has anything truly unique and special to offer. Now, the short answer to that last part, do you have something special to offer? Yes, you most certainly do. You, my friend, are unique and valuable soul. There's only one of you in all of time, which means that no other person has or ever will have that unique blend of gifts, strengths, perspective and talents that you have. As I've often said before, you are quite literally a one time mega event in the universe. Now if you're looking to go even further on this topic, I need you to keep listening. You're gonna learn a simple way to find your special gift, even if you don't think you have one. This is Q&A Tuesday, where it's all about cues and as in today's Q comes from miss Sasha, and she writes. Hey Marie, I get caught up with something usually say at the end of your videos. It goes something along the lines of the world needs that special gift that only you have. I don't really see myself as someone that has any special gifts and especially nothing I can offer to the world unless there's a world's best procrastination competition, I'll go next week. Very clever. How can I work out what these special gifts are that I was sent into this world with thanks for any advice Sasha. Sasha, this is a super great question. You know, I have never met one single person who doesn't have any gifts. But I've met loads of people who wonder if they even just have one. I think part of the problem is this word gifts. So when we hear that word gifts or talents instantly, we think of someone who can sing or dance or talk to dead people or solve gigantic quadratic equations without using a pencil. So I think the first step is we need to look at gifts in a broader way. So a simple shift is to start calling them strengths. There's no one that can say they don't have strengths, right? And I bet you have strengths, you're not even aware of Sasha. Now the $1 million question is, well, how do I figure out what my strengths are? The best place to start is with one of my favorite books of all time. Behold, Marcus Buckingham's, now discover your strengths. Sasha, I recommend this book to everybody. And now when you read it, you're gonna discover that every single human being, including you is born with a unique set of strengths. Now, the book also comes with a code so that you can take this awesome little test and discover exactly what your strengths are. Now the thing about strengths, there really an ability you have. It's something that comes very naturally to you. It's something that when you do it, you actually feel stronger. It's something that you can imagine yourself doing repeatedly happily and successfully. Now, most people overlook their strengths because the fact it comes so naturally to them, they take it for granted. For instance, are you a great learner? Do you have a strong sense of empathy? Do you thrive on competition? Do you have a knack for imagining the future and getting people excited about it? Can you win other people over, even if you've just met them? All those things are strengths or what you might call gifts. And yes, they are special and useful even if they're not talent show material. Presenting jams, magnificent, spatial relations, problem solver. You know if you guys just moved all these chairs like one inch over, you could probably fit a whole other row. Now, once you know your strengths, the whole key is to continue to use them as often as you can and to develop them. It's a big key to happiness both in your regular life and at work. Now here's a big thing you don't want to get tripped up on. Don't try and look for the perfect job or the perfect business to start in order to express your strengths. Your strengths are going to be with you for life. And if you're like most people in this day and age, you're going to have many evolutions in your career. So you don't have to worry about it. So for example, in my own life, two of my top strengths are positivity and communication. Now, I use these strengths when I was on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange on Wall Street. I use them when I was a bartender. I use them when I was a Nike athlete, and I use them every single day in my business and here on Marie TV. Now there's loads more we can talk about as this is a big and fascinating topic. But the two most important steps you can take are number one, recognize that yes, you do have gifts. You just gotta start calling them strengths. And number two, you want to find out what those strengths are and start using them as often as you can because the world really does need it. So let's land this plane on one of my favorite quotes of all time, and yes, it's a tweetable. Vocation is the place where our deep gladness meets the world's deep need. That was my a to your Q Sasha, I really hope it helps. Did this episode help you come up with some strengths or gifts? I want you to tell me about them. I would love to hear this. You can share with me on social. I am at Marie Forleo on all the platforms. Now, if you're struggling a little bit, here's another way to reframe this. Take a look. What brings you joy? You know why? Because joy is simply your gifts wanting to come out of you. So if that word strengths or talents keeps tripping you up, I want you to get really curious about what brings you joy and then just journal about it. Remember, our world has more than enough critics, right? I want you to be an encourager instead, and that includes an encourager of yourself. Until next time, stay on your game and keep going for your big dreams, because the world really does need that very special gift that only you have. Thank you so much for tuning in and I'll catch you next time on Marie TV and the Marie Forleo podcast. Oh, Gigi, why are you ain't got no alibi? Did you find it?

"And so I think that, in that case, you do have to kind of push through that and try to be a peacemaker. And a peacemaker, peacemaking, if you think about it, it involves conflict. So it involves you having to enter into disagreement and trying to create space between people who do not see things the same way. Versus piece keeping, which is just, I'm just not going to challenge anybody because I just want to keep the peace and I don't want to have any disruption or I don't want anybody to be uncomfortable or I don't want anybody to be mad at me, right? So, but I do think it's also really important. I have a chapter on embracing healthy conflict that you learn how to do conflict in a healthy way. And again, the person that you're talking to has to be willing to do that as well. I don't think getting into a crazy making argument is anything that anybody is obligated to do. The other thing that you could do, Marie is you might be a person who says, you know what? I'm getting divorced. I'm depressed. I don't have the capacity. I don't have the emotional capacity for this. I just don't. And I'm going to lose it if I try to engage here. My family is driving me crazy. I don't even want to be here. So what can I do? And so that's when I say with boundaries, figure out what you know is, and so you're like, I'm just a note of this. I am a no to what this person is saying. And so say they're saying something about undocumented immigrants. What would your yes be in that situation? You're yes could be, I'm gonna leave this table after dinner and I'm gonna go donate to a group that helps undocumented immigrants. I'm gonna volunteer for a group that helps undocumented immigrants. If you're me, I'm gonna write a column about how can I help, you know, ways awareness around undocumented immigrants..

"Let's say practicing discomfort and there are different ways you can do that. So he says roughly. To set aside a certain number of days each month during which you'll eat the cheapest of food where the grimy and coarsest of dress, asking yourself all the while, is this the condition that I so feared? This is really important. And a modern version of this could be, for instance, one thing that one of my Friends and certainly mentors, Kevin Kelly does, Kevin Kelly, the real world, most interesting man in the world. I mean, has an Amish beard, but he's a technology futurist, builds his own houses. Travels a few months a year with his entire family. The guy does everything. He's really just fascinating. And he will say, grab a backpack, and sleep on the floor or sleep outside for a week at a time. And eat oatmeal and realize that far from being a huge burden and a disaster, it's actually very freeing, and he feels great. Feels light. And that if you were to take things away from him, he can still be content. He can still do the things that bring him the most joy. What does that mean then in terms of people listening? And I will get to fear setting, but this is a part of it. As a practice, you could, for instance, like my trusty Bulgarian over there. You could, much like Steve Jobs also say where the same type of T-shirt for a week or two straight. Or one or two pairs of jeans. Also. For a week or two strings. Right. I said, I do that. And some people listening might say, oh, God, but it's so people are gonna notice that I'm wearing the same stuff, they'll think I'm sleeping in my clothing, good. Good. Cato, who's also very famous stoic, used to deliberately and he was a lawmaker. Would deliberately wear clothing that was of an unfashionable color, like a tunic of the wrong color, which back in Roman is like, oh God, purple tunic or blue turnip? What is he thinking? And he would walk around barefoot, which was not something that everybody did. And he would get ridiculed, and he did it very, very much on purpose. So that he would learn to be ashamed only of the things that are worth being ashamed of. And that is not clothing that is not walking around barefoot. You and I were chatting a little bit about this. The Internet has gone like Civil War on my facial hair, a lot of people hate this crazy Ming the Merc look that I've put on. And the fact of the matter is a big reason I'm doing it is precisely to train myself to ignore that. I love it. Yeah, I mean, the fact of the matter is, I think I probably look better without it. But I'm doing it, and I'm doing it in a really public way, right? On TV to train myself not to care because it doesn't matter. And when you train yourself in the little things, then you stand a chance of being courageous when you need to be for the big things. You can't wait for the big things. You have to practice on small things. Oh my goodness, great stuff there, am I right? So now it is time to turn these insights into action. So I'd love to know. What's the one thing you're afraid to do and what small step can you take in that direction? Remember, you do not have to jump into the deep end when you're learning to swim. I want you to take Susan and Tim's advice. Just focus on baby steps. Build your stamina, and I promise you're going to be amazed at what you can achieve if you really commit to this practice.

"You're like, if this is life after the game, I don't want any part of this. And so I quite literally got a moment of like it just hit all of a sudden like the wind. I think you go through this foggy moment when you start having these things kind of compile. And all of a sudden the fog clears and you realize there's a cliff right here. And I remember I just, my buddy had said something. He said he'd noticed me in a father and he goes, hey, this is your reality. And those words I could hit me, and at one night I put a text out to my Friends and family said, please tell my kids their father was, and I was like, oh, and the goal was to go and find a store like rat poison, but it was like ten o'clock at night. So thankfully no stores were open. I ended up stop at an hour out of my town at a gas station and just sitting there. And I'm thankful that nothing was open, obviously, but also thankful that the motion was able to subside, GPS, the cops found by GPS. And I can obviously talk. So I was like, oh, I'm fine. I talked it off. Well, head home. So I headed home, and that was, man. That was like the first step of the climb out of the bottom because what most people don't know is I drove up to the house with 30 people, friends and family, standing there. So not only did I have this dark feeling but not got this overwhelming shame of like these people are looking for me. It was just heavy. I just remember like it was long weekend we'll call it Marie very long weekend. And it was somewhere the hard part and it would have turned into as a beautiful kind of blessing as a seat that got planted was come Monday, was the day the go back to work, right? And there's no playbook for you to go back to life after you've told people that you don't want to be in life. You know, there's so I just go back to work and I remember going back to work and one of my former high school teammates, good buddy of mine still worked for me at the gym. It takes me to the back office. He says, hey, I got two things to tell you. One. Says don't ever do it again in your life. I don't know what you're thinking. I was like, hey, man, I'm sorry, man. I apologize. He says, two, when I found out, was going.

Violin or Fiddle, Whats the Difference?
"And I wanted to show a little bit of a difference between the fiddle playing and classical violin playing. A lot of people ask what's the difference? There's actually no difference in the instrument itself. It's the same instrument. It's more how you play it. So if you're playing a more traditional classical piece, you'll have this kind of more rounded sound with a lot of vibrato, which is where you kind of move your hand. See how I'm really kind of using a lot of movement here. Now when Marie takes the stage and she plays fiddle, it's gonna be a lot more of kind of this open string sound where I don't use as many fingers. You still have to use fingers, but you kind of have this more open sound. Also, there's a lot of this kind of long short short short long, short short pattern that really creates this more fiddle, folksy vibe. Okay. About that. Anyway, it's really fun. And for those of you who haven't tried it, and maybe have been more classically trained, yet give a little bit of a chance to do that long short term rhythm and maybe on two open strings. And that can go a long ways when you're playing whether with the band or playing solo. Hopefully you guys are learning a little bit about different genres here. And then if you are a fiddler originally and you're trying to learn classical, you're going to use less of those open strings instead of import more user fourth figure. And see how that gets a more covered sound in a certain sense. And just kind of a more rounded sound. So there's your little mini lesson today on the difference between classical playing and fiddle

True Belonging With Brene Brown
"What i found is that true belonging is a spiritual practice and it's about the ability to find sacredness in both being a part of something but also the courage to stand alone and the people for those of us who struggled to have the courage to stand alone especially when we know that it risk we're risking that sense of being a part of something because we disagree. Yes because we have a different opinion Because we love something different That is the mark. That's the mark of true belonging to be able to say. Yes i am a part of something bigger. But i also will stand alone when i need to and then then it was like whole chat you belong everywhere and nowhere and that is liberation.

Call to make four feature films so to answer your question really briefly. France gave her the opportunity as it did for many african americans between the nineteen thirties. All the way through. I would say even in the nineteen seventies. It gave these people an opportunity to make careers that were not possible in a segregated united states
Do We Buy Things We Never Use?
"So angela. I have a habit. And i suspect many other people do as well of acquiring often buy purchase. What i've come to think of as aspirational objects which is to say. I will buy stuff that i think i want. Or maybe more accurately that. I would like to want but which in fact i'll never actually use so one tiny example at home. We probably have six hundred boxes of keen wa in our cupboard seen wa as far as i know we've never actually eaten keen wa at home high protein grain. It's not actually a green per se it's close to a grain. Oh is the lagoon. No it's neither to seed. I believe but that's beside the point also similarly. I have over my lifetime bought. Hundreds perhaps thousands of books that i've never read or at least not more than a few pages of i know many people who have bought closets and basi- full of exercise equipment and golf equipment and nutritional supplements in hair oil. So my question is are such acquisitions. Nothing but a waste of time and energy or is there an upside in such aspirational thinking. Even if the thought rarely translates into deed so aspirational consumerism. I mean that's a bit of national behavior. And especially the repeated part right. I can understand buying the first back of keen wa not using it and then you know whatever money down the drain but the second bag of king juan even the third now. That's that's that's interesting. And i should say just to draw the fuller picture. I do like to keep things tidy. I will go through our cupboards at home and know purge them. You'll marie condo. Yeah i'll purge so every. Let's say six months i'll throw away or donate eight boxes of keen wa her and literally eleven but then over the next few weeks you'll buy more okay so of course when you buy that next box keen wa. You don't think let me buy another box of keen wa that i can six months from donate. You're actually thinking at that moment that you're going to make the keen wa right. Oh yeah because for every box of keen wa that i've bought there have been approximately one trillion articles written about the benefits of and. I've read them all by the way it's quite good. Okay how do you know major kean. I've eaten it out but you know when you're cooking at home it's more of an investment when you're out and you say oh kean mutt. Sure all i have to do is say the word and it's going to be brought to me well here in. I think maybe is the solution to this. Least a clue. So what is it that keen wa and books and exercise equipment having common self-improvement and effort. So i think the difference between keen wall on the menu and keeping your covered is and by the ways even just have to boil it not that much effort. I know it's not a big investment but it's a big investment for the payoff for the while payoff which is small in your view.

What Separates Peru From the Rest of South America?
"With rick steves with an insider look at how peru stands out from the rest of south america. It's where author and journalist. Marie arana grew up before her bicultural family moved to the us. She writes about her identity in her book. American teacup read. Thanks for joining us. Thank you so much. Rik good to be here. I'm just really excited for you to be my tour guide because is country. I know very little about before we get into this discussion about the people of peru. Just give us a quick one paragraph description of your homeland you know for a country that's the size of roughly the size of california not much bigger. It's an astonishing place because it has just every kind of land form you can imagine. Rick it has the coast it has the desert it has the jungle it has the mountain has the planes. It has all of that and if you fly over peru this is amazing to me you go from one land form to another land form just in the course of a few seconds. It's it's really astonishing place geographically when you compare peru to the other south american countries. How would the people of peru see themselves Compared to the countries that surround them. Well you know we are an andean nation and the andean nations are of course colombia and ecuador and bolivia these are the the spine of the andes of course runs through the whole continent. But we are. We call ourselves and ian people because we are a mix honesty so mix of indigenous and white and black in a very different proportion. Shall we say to. The people of venezuela which are are less india less indigenous more more black and the colombians as well which has a much larger population of blacks than we do improve we do have afro peruvian along the coast who have been there for hundreds and hundreds of years but we are distinguished. I think by our indian ness. And i think that you know the people of argentina. The people of that people are why they come. They come up to peru and they're they're struck by the truly indian culture that we have okay so when you say

"Far as we know. Hitler never had any children however there was a rumor that he had an illegitimate son in france in nineteen eighteen jean-marie laurey was born in san quentin france. You never knew his father and his mother only told him that his father was german soldier in nineteen forty eight just before his mother's death. She told him that the german soldier in question was named hitler. The story was kept a secret but it was eventually leaked to the press in the early. Nineteen seventies hines. Linke was hitler's valet during the war in his memoirs. He noted quote hitler's belief that he had a son born in nineteen eighteen. As the result of relationship he had with the french girl as a soldier in world war one in northern france and belgium unquote. There is no hard evidence to prove this claim and no genetic testing has ever been done. Laura had nine children so they're still might be potential to do genetic testing in the
Congressman Darrell Issa: The Jan. 6 Commission Is a Sham
"Issa congressman. I said welcome back to america. I well good to be back on. And when it comes to two nations nobody matches you so. I'm happy to take the compliment from a source. That knows what i will have to kind. That's to kind okay. Let's let's talk business. You mentioned in the break how busy we must be fighting. Insurrections and getting committee stood up your reaction to the fact that nancy or shall we call him. shall we called him. Marie-antoinette doesn't want to have any truth telling republicans on her committee so has she really made a mistake now congressman. Is it now not clear to everyone that the january the six quote unquote commission is just a political sham. It is a political sham. It's going to be bipartisan but without a disagreement at the start as to any aspect of it because she has managed to pick people who already agree with her at least she believes they do and Starting of course with liz cheney. She's got somebody who Has basically said that the republican party and anyone who said that there were irregularities in arizona or pennsylvania are inherently un-american and likens us to the people on the wrong side of the civil war The reality is our constitutional obligations were met. She chose to go and other way but nancy. Pelosi wants to turn all of that into a january six once in a millenium Sort of a claim And she's going to run that through with this sham commission.

"The. Welcome to the Marie folio podcast. The audio version of my award-winning show Murray TV now short. Visit Marie Forleo dot com slash Marie TV where you'll find hundreds of other episodes. Thanks for listening. Hey, it's marine four Leo. And you are watching Marie TV the place to be to create a business and life you love, and this is QA Tuesday's. Today's question comes from Andy's, and he writes, hi, Marie. Thank you for your inspiring QNA Tuesdays. You are welcome. I'm man an absolutely your fan. My cue is I'm usually starting different projects and business personal development with great passion. But as a rule sooner or later, I get Ford with them could you advise on how to keep my sparkling eyes have a fantastic day. And thank you, and from Latvia did someone say sparkling. Andy's Rockin question. I've heard this many different ways from all different people. Follow through is a habit lane and simple. The reason you don't fall through is. Because you don't have the happy yet. So here's the good news. You can make it a habit and here. Three tips to get you going tip number one. Stop expecting your eyes to sparkle. There's this notion that the acts of creation should be joyful and fun and fill of pixie dust in fields. Daisy diamonds, I don't even know what that means. But it's bull Hickey the act of creation is hard. Andy's. You've gotta get this. It is hard. My brother every creator. I know struggles to finish things. Here's the deal. Most people are amateurs when it comes to creating. So, unfortunately, they quit before the work gets done. Not you Andy's you gotta turn pro you got to do the work and do it until it's finished. You wanna know what my eyes do sometimes when I'm creating they bleed because it's freakin hard. Here's the deal. If you want to be successful at anything in life, you have to fall through and sometimes that means pushing through even when things or a little unspeakably tip number to start with your little balls. Take a look at how you roll throughout your day before example, do you complete what you start or do you have a bunch of hah? Half done messes all over the place. In other words, are you dropping the ball in all kinds of little ways? Here's the deal. Andy's if you can't handle your little balls. What are you going to do with your big balls? So here's what I suggest when you're writing an Email don't have finish one. And then start another one follow through complete one Email at a time. Or when you're paying your bills don't pay some of your bills and leave the rest of the pile till later, get it all done may sound trite but important habits like fall through our built one small ball at a time. But seriously, this is all about the compound effect of simple daily choices. When you commit to not dropping your small balls here. Big balls handle themselves tip number three don't make it. Optional have you noticed that when you have to do something you just do it? Whether it's showing up for work or getting a project done for a client or getting your passport renewed. When you have no option, you just get it done. You follow through the reason? Most of us don't fall through is. Because we give ourselves. Options not to we think that promise to ourselves doesn't count as much as promised to someone else now strap yourself in because here comes a massive tweet able. If you wanna be responsible, keep your promises to others. If you wanna be successful, keep your promises to yourself. And now a bonus tip put yourself on a project diet, let's be real here. Can we you? And I both know that creative folk like us we go on project binges, we walk up to the project buffet and think it's all you can eat. No, you are going on a project diet right now, you can only do one project at a time. You cannot put anything else on your plate until you finish that one project. You've gotta get in the habit of taking on one thing and finishing it before you take on anything else. In other words, step away from the. So there you go Andy's your cue just got aid. Now, obviously, there's a lot more. We could talk about when it comes to fall through. But these strategies will definitely get you started. Now, I really want to hear from you.

And you are watching Marie TV the place to be to create a business in life you love and today. I have a question for you. Do you have cobwebs on your buy button? Are you scratching your head? Wondering why more people aren't landing up around the block to get a piece of your pie. You know, what I mean, why are more people buying your products your services, your pie, something is not working? So let's figure out what that is. Because once you densify you can rectify each. In other words, we can turn that sales Brown upside down. Let's start with reason. Number one. You're not asking for the sale or making enough offers back in the day when I was still coaching one on one my man, Josh made a brilliant observation. He said, you know, Marie your, newsletters are awesome. But why didn't you mention you have coaching spots. Open for new clients for me that was like duh was a palm to the forehead moment. You know, most of us are so afraid of making direct offers or asking for the sale because we don't want to come across as pushy or sales -i. Look, you run a business that means you have to make offers and directly ask for the sale. And if you have any hesitation whatsoever about sales and marketing you need to get your buns and be school. The next time class comes around. Esi that I just made you an offer right there reason. Number two, you have an armed are trust, no reviews. No testimonials. No demonstrations, no track record, no before. And after when I hand over my money, I wanna know something works or at the very least I want to hear about other people's experiences. If you sell a product that grows hair. I wanna see pictures of people was ball patches. And then pictures of people with luxurious hair. I wanna see some happy customer quotes saying, you know, once I was bald. And now, I have a big Bush appear guys mine out of the Jeter. Don't you say miracle hair grow? It works show me some rave reviews show is something reason. Number three, your offer isn't specific enough? We did a whole video on this with my dear friend, Rome meets safety. You've got to choose a specific audience and then make offer specifically tailored to them. Here's the three seconds summary when you walk in everybody, you'd saw can nobody. Nobody. I wasn't talking to you. I was talking to everybody. What? See what happens reason number four? We have no idea what you're actually selling. If you're selling juicy sassy abundance. We don't know what that is. Does it remove? I'm make up isn't a special on specialty. Now contrast that with one of my favorite food shops in New York City is called the Meatball shop guess what they sell mop handles, no meatballs, and actually the best balls ever veggie balls that is and just in case you forget what they sell. They remind you like this. Ball reason? Number five, the price is not right. Do not come on down. The price is wrong bitch. You may be too expensive or to cheap for your ideal customers, or maybe you haven't affectively communicated, the value of your offer to make it an brainer. Now, we've already talked about praising quite a few times here on Marie TV here here and here. Reason number six if given us too many, damn choices. Here's an example jams. Oh, no sorry. Does everyone know jams? I'm talking about the kind that you eat with peanut butter. There's this study about two different stands in the same grocery store that we're both selling jam one. Stan had twenty four kinds of jam the other only six now more people took free samples from the stand with twenty four kinds of jam. But guess which stands scored more sales. You got it the one with only six kinds of jam. In fact, less choice and jams equals six times. More sales day. I'm Jay now, if you wanna deeper dive on this study checkout, the Ted talk by Sheena, I n gar not to be confused with Sheena Easton who sang with prince on. You got the look not to be confused with their lesser known jam called. They got confused.

For the answer. 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 pass gas. And 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 brawny wear 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 with brawny, you need to watch it right after this one I'll put a link below. So the short story is that brawny was a palette of 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 death bed 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 gets me in the gut. It's one of those truce 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 eight today actually has three parts part number one. What's one thing? You're doing right now. Not because it's true for you.

"Goodness, my friend sent me one of your videos the other week, and I've been hooked. I've spent ages watching them every minute. I learned something not only about how to handle situations in my business. But also about myself, many many, thanks. Here's my cue. Honestly, I find a little embarrassing. I finally found a way to channel my creativity into something. I love making dolls I recently launched my website in Britain, a press release to send out to MAGS approach batiks to stock my dolls, and I'm keeping my Facebook and Twitter update, it my problem said when I started researching the market sure there are a lot of people making dolls out there. But I started feeling intimidated by one particular person success. I think she's amazing. She's worked hard to get where she isn't it took her quite a while to but I'm a little jealous. She's everywhere praised left and right on the internet and on TV, and in the magazines that I would like to get into I'm worried that if everyone is so caught up on one person they won't recognize anyone else. And now I've begun to doubt myself and started thinking that my press releases will end up in the bin. And that people will think my work is behind the trend. Can I ever get noticed? If someone else got their first great question. First thing I want you to know is that there is no need for you to be embarrassed. I believe that every human being on the planet at some point or another has felt intimidated and jealous of someone else at some point in their career fact below this video I'm gonna put some links to earlier episodes of Marie TV that we've done to teach you some healthy ways to deal with competition. And also ways to stand out from the crowd. But the big message you need to hear is this, and yes, it's a tweet -able. There's always room at the top Daniel Webster. That's right. Daniel Webster said that. And you know, who else said it, Adam ant? This is so bad. I can't even dance to it. Think about any industry. I mean, let's take acting for example. There's a lot of a list actors, you think about comedians or even think about the music industry, right? There's lots of A-List Popstars and hip hop stars. And contra music stars when it comes to press. It's actually really good news..

In this episode of Murray TB, we do have some adult language. So if you have little ones around grab your headphones now. Hey, it's Marie folio. And you are watching Marie TV the place to be to create a business and life you love, and I am so excited for today because I have my favorite author of all time, and we're gonna be talking about creativity. And doing the work that you were born to do Stephen press 'field is the best selling author of the legend of Bagger, Vance gates of fire, the Afghan campaign and the lines gate as well as the cult classics on creativity. The war of art turning pro do the work and nobody wants to read your shit. His most recent book is the artist journey and his Wednesday's column on Stephen press dot com is among the most popular writing blogs on the web. Steve thank you so much for being here. Number one. It's great to be here Maria, thanks for having me and a huge enormous. Thank you behalf of myself. And I know my audience like I have to tell this to you because you're sitting right here on the couch, your work every single work ever. Single book has helped me personally so much and I get asked all the time. What my favorite books and never once. Do. I vary from war of art. Like glad it help. Yeah. It's you're awesome. You're amazing. So I wanna start off with the reality of your creative journey because I feel like in today's day and age many of us suffer from this instant gratification idea, we want everything, you know. I have people say they have been working at this for three months and nothing's happening on like I wanted just heading to wall. So you wrote for seventeen years before earning your first penny from writing it took you twenty seven before you got your first novel, the legend of Bagger Vance published and it wasn't until you're in your early fifties that you actually started to make a living from your words is that right through. So here's something you said, and I want to hear your reaction to it. We cannot control the level of talent we've begin we have no control over the nature of our gift what we can't control as our self motivation are self discipline. Ourself validation and our self reinforcement what we can control is how hard and how smart we work. Well, said oh you sat. So you what my reaction agree with completely? I do. I'm definitely a believer. Not a lot of people. Don't right. The way. I do. I'm a believer in the muse. I believe that projects kind of come to us almost like assignments. And that we and that we have to follow them or at least. That's my theory. I only wanna right. What I wanna right? Not everybody. Does that people lot of people like they're kind of right for higher? But in that case, again, not only can't we control our level of talent. I don't I believe, but we're not we can't even control what we're gonna work on. Like, I've always said that the books that I've written. I never knew I was going to write them before. I wrote them. And I was always surprised that. I'd look at something say, I did that you know. So they think the only thing we really can control is like what the stoic say. You know, that's kind of a popular thing. These days that how how professionally we work how we control manage our emotions. How we manage our expectations. How we deal with failure? And you know, how what our level of aspiration is a hard. We're gonna try how patient we are. So yeah, I do think there is that culture of instant gratification celebrity culture out there, all we gotta do to a sex tape or something like that. And the, you know, you know, a YouTube of clever YouTube bitty video and it's just not true. I'm curious. Did you always know that you wanted to write like was the little boy, Steve? No, I didn't I didn't. And that's kinda made it hard for me along the way because I wasn't so sure, and I have a feeling that maybe a lot of people that are watching him or you're in the same boat where you don't have that kind of clarion. Bell tells you if you're Bob Dylan, you know, like at age nineteen what you wanna do. But for me. No. I mean, I. I wanted to be a writer, but I didn't have any real success. Early added wasn't like I was a genius in English or anything like that. So along the way self-doubt was an incredible thing. It was like really deep this really what you you know. 'cause there wasn't that much positive reinforcement coming back. Yeah. So that was that was a really hard one for me in my long long journey. And I think it is for a lot of people that you just not sure. Yeah. And I think that's an interesting point in terms of that distinction. Like, I know there are several people in my life who were very clear since the time they were little of the thing that they wanted to do and eventually they made it happen. And for me. Similarly, I had no idea and part of my journey. I think was because some of that was cultural didn't really know what I wanted. I'd never seen. Anyone do the thing that I'm doing? Now the road Yuli invented this thing called Marie forty just before. I don't think. Exactly. But in terms of even the world of coaching or creating content. None of those things are really present growing up in the seventies and eighties and the nineties. It was just not there yet. So I just really appreciate that. You said that because I'm sure there are many people listening who are trying to figure out what their gift is or how to express that gift. And I think it's really reassuring to hear from folks who say, hey, I didn't have it figured out for quite a long time. But if you keep showing up, and experimenting and listening to that inner voice is a really good chance. You're gonna find it about the only thing you can do Betsy plug him, and you know, what's cool too. I just have to say this is like an amazing fun fact that I just discovered about you that your literary agent. Sterling Lord, can we talk about him for a minute. He's marginally years old when I when we finish here on have lunch with him. He's ninety eight years old, and I just had a situation where he's. He's old enough that he made the deal for on the road. Jack Kerr wax on the road in nineteen forty eight for nine hundred bucks amazing, and he's your literary agent, and he's still going like a champ while I short just had an experience with him where I kind of I left him years ago, and with my with my partner show coin, and I just had a book I've been working on really hard for less years its head just nothing but negative response and eventually even Sean gave up on it. And I was ready to. You know, I was really definitely bummed by this thing. So I just maybe eight months I called up sterling out of the blue. I knew he was ninety eight. I didn't even know if you still working, and I just said sterling, I got a book, and nobody wants will you represent it. And he said hell, yeah. And within like, two months or something it'd made it he'll so and it's very exciting for him to get some action going at this

And this is the Marie TV Colin show where we take laugh calls and try to help some people out this, Gregory Patterson. Howdy, Doody always the one who make me look fabulous with the hair. And I just love him. We just have a good time together. So let's do this. Hello. Roxanne? Yeah. It's Mary four Leo. You're on the Marie TV Colin show. You're on your team poor Leo here. Gregory's here we are so excited to connect with you. So tell us your question, and we will do our very best to help you out. My goodness. My goodness gracious. So thank you so much for for for calling me. And I just love you. Absolutely love you. I I am I discovered you not too long ago. And I am wanting to understand how to present myself. And I I want to understand how to present myself with vulnerability show, my own ability and still show that on capable of helping people guiding and coaching great, tell me more. So I'm coming from a past with trauma. I was diagnosed with post traumatic stress disorder, and I use art forms as my primary form of recovery. Practice, and I would love to share with other people how to recover their creative selves. Whether they think of themselves as artists are not because I think that creativity is very healing. And so I I've always been a very private person. And I was never sure how much did I fold and how to present myself. And so I'm kind of on the line of I feel like if I if I don't share then I just really won't connect. Yes, people. Yes, I agree. So first of all, I'm so happy that you're sharing this question. I know that we have tens of thousands and in the world there are millions of people who also have PTSD or battle against anxiety or depression, or any range numbers of issues that in the past has had some stigma with it. But as you said those days are over and so many of us need to share, honestly. And bravely about the things that we struggle with. And personally Roxanne I think that people who share about what they've been through. And frankly, what they're still going through and what their with their battling against those are the people that we trust the most, you know, in this world of coach. Ching, personal development and experts. I think the old model was all about some sage on the stage. That's always like how characteristic how I'd like to characterize it where standing up there and pretending like they have all the answers and they never make any mistakes. And they're going to kind of bestow on you this wisdom, and and guide you to the promise land, first of all I think all of that is bullshit. I think it's so inauthentic. It is not true. Every single one of us is a work in progress. We are all learning. We're all trying our best. We will all face challenges. Not only the ones that we've had in our past. But there's ones coming up in the future. So I always liked to describe myself never as a sage on the stage and always as a guide on the side. So what does that mean? That means I'm someone who is really enthusiastic. First of all about learning. Second of all about using ideas for myself to see what works, and what doesn't and then third with sharing those ideas, the things that I think are valuable with. With folks who might also be interested and might also want to try these things. So I think for you making that internal shift like, you know, what Roxanne your guide on the side. And you have every right to share things not like you're better than or less than I know. That's not the total crux of your question. We'll get to the sharing vulnerability in a minute. But I like that framework because need allows me to then pour myself into a positioning where I'm not better. I'm not less, and I can look at what to share that is relevant for my audience. And I think this word relevance will be really important for you. As you move ahead. So no that sharing about your PTSD and the details that. Surround it. How much share is completely up to you? You can start off dipping your towing the water telling one or two stories have your comfort level expand. And then as you continue to engage with your audience. You'll know and you'll feel where you may wanna keep some details. Private just because that feels authentic to you and other places where you're like, you know, what I really do need to share this. Because all of these other folks in my audience have battled something similar, and it'll help them. No. They're not alone. And you know, I really love the fact that you say that talk about sharing stories as opposed to sharing. Diagnoses for example. Yes. Oh, yes. It's a I mean, I think it's more authentic to talk about what it is. And what the experience of it is as opposed to just the name of it. That's right. And so one way that you can frame it is you can say, hey, all of us have had challenging things that we've battled in our past. All of us have things that we've experienced before that may be holding us back now. And we're not quite sure how to move through them for me. I can tell you a story about this or control tell you a story about this time when I was fifteen or when I was eleven and how that manifest for me. Now is x y and z and I wanna take you on this journey moving forward. So we can both learn so we can also mortgage other. So I can share some of the tools and the understandings and the strategies that not only have helped me, but that have continued and do continue to help me, and we can learn as we move forward together. So can you say how with that type of framing? You're allowing yourself to be vul-. Durable. But you're all new still communicating that you're capable. Yes. Absolutely. Absolutely. This helpful tremendously helpful. It's very affirming. I think I was there in my mind. And I think there was the fear of just dipping that toe in the water and moving forward. But once I make a decision. I'm ready to go. And that's what we like to hear. And just know this is a process for all of us. I think we're living in such a new time that can be filled with some conflicts right about how much do we share about ourselves? This online space and the span of human history having these tools available to us where we can share everything and people can comment and people can get upset and a lot of people are very brave with their enemy behind a keyboard. But they say things they would never say to you in person. So I think it's natural to feel some of that trepidation. It's natural to have some of those inner conflicts with how much do I share? But when you're committed to not only a message, but to transforming other people's lives and having them feel safe around you and letting them know that they're not alone. It becomes a lot easier. So we take that light. And rather than shining on ourselves in our fear. We turn it outward to being of service, and for me that has made all the difference. Oh my goodness. Awesome. Yes. You to awesome Roxanne you keep us posted. We're going to be cheering you on. And I can't wait to hear your updates as they come along. Thank you so much. I'm so excited to start this challenge for women, and I just I really door. You marie? Thank you so much for your health and have a great rest of the day you too we adore you darling. Good luck with your challenge by. Thank you.

"Thanks so much for listening. In this episode of Marie TV. We do have some adult language. So if you have little ones around grab your headphones now. Hates Marie four. Leo. And you are watching Marie TV the place to be to create a business and life you love. Now, if you sometimes feel like a fraud. No matter how much you accomplish. Or do this episode is for you. Today's question comes from z who writes, hey, Mury. I'm really struggling with imposter syndrome. No matter how many people tell me, I'm amazing and really helped them. No matter how much progress I make my business in life. I still feel like it's all a fluke, and I actually suck. And I should give up. I know that's normal. Lots of people have it. But hey, all the more reason to ask for your help gotten any tips. Thanks so much Z O Z my love. Yes. Yes. Yes. This is a great question. You know, according to the international journal of behavioral science, a whopping seventy percent of us suffer from imposter syndrome or that feeling of being a total fraud. So you're right. You are normal and guess what? You're actually in very good company. In fact, here just a few people, you might have heard of who can totally relate Jennifer Lopez said, even though I had sold seventy million albums there. I was feeling like I'm no good at this Jodie Foster said when I won the Oscar I thought it was a fluke. I thought everybody would find out and they take it back. Excuse me. We meant to give that to someone else that was going to Meryl Streep even the legendary Maya Angelou said I've written eleven books, but each time I think a they're gonna find out. Now, I've run a game on everybody, and they're going to find me out while this fraud feeling impacts everyone. It tends to hit women the hardest why because as women and members of other traditionally underrepresented groups, it's easy to look around and feel out of place or like, we don't belong and socially. We've been conditioned to self deprecate and downplay our abilities when we internalize that. Message that we're not the real deal we suffer major consequences and not just emotionally or mentally, but financially I'm talking smaller careers and smaller Bank accounts. That's why it's so so so important that we're talking about this. So let's dive in with six strategies to help you combat those negative effects of imposter syndrome strategy number one is share the shame. So most people who are high achievers feel this way. But never talk about it. It's like this dirty little secret that everyone's at frayed to admit now, I will tell you right now. I still feel this way. And I've been doing what I'm doing for almost two decades, my friend Bernard Brown says this as a shame researcher. I know that the very best thing to do. In the midst of shame attack is totally counter intuitive, practice, courage and reach out a to the men Burnett and Amen to use e for sharing with this question. You know, why? Because shame. Always shrivels when you share it out loud. So here's what to do to take this even further what I want you to do is put a few people on speed dial. When that fraud festival comes to town, and it won't go away. These folks are your new hashtag fraud squad people who you can jump on a call with and just say something like, you know. Hey, guys, I'm feeling like I kind of suck right now. Can you remind me why I don't now naturally you should be willing to return the favor, you want to be that person who's always lifting others up and reminding them of how great they are, especially when they can't see it for themselves strategy number to shine your light out not in. Now. I did a whole episode about this idea that you should watch right after this one, and I will put a link below. But here's the flashlight method in a nutshell. See I want you to think about your attention, your mental and emotional and spiritual energy as a flashlight and that flashlight can only shine in one direction. So in any given moment that flashlight is either shining in on you. And how insecure you are and how much of a fraud you feel like or it shining out where your attention is on your customer what they feel and what they need and what and most importantly how you can help them..
