In this post I want to share the most important business tip I’ve ever gotten. It was shared with me many years ago, when I first became friends with the lovely and amazing Marie Forleo.
I remember seeing Marie on stage. She was giving a talk about what it means to be an entrepreneur and run her own business. She gave us the #1 tool that has always been a driving force in her career and in her life.
When she said these simple words, they changed me forever. These words changed the way I looked at my business and changed the way I showed up for my relationships. They changed everything.
So today I’m going to share this simple and profound tip with you.
Everything is figure-out-able
Marie’s mantra is “Everything is figure-out-able.”
Marie says this wherever she goes. It’s her mantra. Everything is figure-out-able.
Whether you are in business for yourself or want to change the way you show up for your job, you have to carry this mindset with you.
When you have limitations, doubts, and feelings of “I can’t” or “I’m not good enough,” you’re always going to block your success.
The 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 started using Marie’s mantra all the time
I started to use Marie’s mantra all the time. This was early in my career, so I was setting up my website, setting up my blog and doing a lot of things on my own. I was figuring out a lot of tech things by myself, building up my marketing skills and Googling like a woman on a mission!
I started to explore how I could grow my audience, or make my blog show up in search results. I wanted to start doing video, so I started my YouTube channel. I began uploading videos that I was shooting on my own computer and editing in iMovie because my friend’s younger brother taught me how to do it!
I just started figuring it out as best I could with whatever resources I had at my disposal. And that’s been a huge key to my business success.
Start practicing this mantra in your life
Start to practice this mantra in your life. See how you may be limiting yourself, and remind yourself: Everything is figure-out-able.
How does this tip shift your approach? How does it shift your energy and vibe? See how it gives you momentum to try things you otherwise might not have.
I expect many miracles to happen when you let this mantra guide you. And don’t forget about our friend Google!
When I’m wondering about something my husband reminds me: “Honey, you have the answers in your hand,” as he points at my phone. And that’s the truth! We have the answers. Let’s make it easy on ourselves, let’s have fun and let’s figure it out!
