I love this video from my dear friend and marketing mentor Marie Forleo! In it she offers up an awesome business tip that helps you amplify your creativity and bust through limiting beliefs.
The question that turns wishes into reality
In the video above, Marie talks about how she likes to finish this sentence: Wouldn’t it be great if…
This is such a brilliant exercise for entrepreneurs because it helps you bust out of the box. It’s all too easy to get stuck in small thinking and caught up in the day-to-day tasks of running a business. “Wouldn’t it be great if…” sparks your imagination!
Anyone can use this tip
You don’t have to currently run a business for this exercise to be super valuable. If you’ve always wanted to start your own company or a cool side gig but haven’t actually done it yet, asking “Wouldn’t it be great if…” gives you a big shot of inspiration!
Try this exercise in your personal life, too.
Taking action on your big dreams
If you’re thinking, “Sure, I can dream big, but that doesn’t mean I can actually do it,” then Marie’s got you, too!
This is where Marie’s mantra, “Everything is figure-out-able,” comes in. I wrote a whole blog post about how this mantra is the most important business tip I’ve ever gotten.
This mantra sends a swell of energy into you. It sends a message right into your veins that says: “Yes I can. There will always be a way. There is always a path of the highest good.”
I used this mantra and started figuring things out the best I could, using the resources I had at my disposal. And it’s been essential to my business success.
Try this mental exercise today! Ask “Wouldn’t it be great if…” and see where it leads you!
