Marie Forleo quotes: my favorite advice from B-School founder, Marie Forleo.

“If you feel a burning desire to be more, do more, and give more, embrace it.”

“Comparison isn’t just a bad habit, it’s a really dangerous one that will kill your business if you let it.  Every time you compare yourself to someone else, you’re letting comparison steal your joy, profits, and prosperity.”

“At the end of the day, you are your wisest advisor.”

“The world needs that special gift that only you have.”

“Sure, systems and habits can be immensely valuable.  But so are freshness and spontaneity.  Your best work can’t be forced; it must be set free.”

“Get on that project.  Make that call.  Send that email.  Shoot that video.  Dance that dance.  Initiative is everything.”

“A business you don’t love is bad for your health.”

“Your creative dreams require fuel.  Downtime, playtime, chill time – it’s all essential.  Not just for healthy life, but for a highly productive and satisfying one too.  From one highly ambitious soul to another, don’t fall for the myth that working 24/7/365 (even when you love what you do) is the best or only way to create results.  Often, it’s the best way to create burnout.  Take care of yourself.  Take breaks.  Sleep well, exercise, hydrate, eat real food, and most important, have some effing fun!  Otherwise, what’s the point, right?”

“Trust that if you really, really want to make something happen, you will.”

“It’s a whole lot easier to critique a thing than it is to make a thing.”

“Always be your best.  What you plant now, you’ll harvest later.”

“You are enough.  Your dreams aren’t made or broken by anyone but you.  You are creative and loved and divinely blessed with capabilities beyond what you can imagine.”

“Ambition really is beautiful.  Cultivate it in yourself and support it in others.”

“Remember, enthusiasm and full-hearted engagement are within your control.”

“I’m all about the long game in business and life.  There is no such thing as overnight success.  That said, knowing when to drop something that just ain’t working is a vital skill that’ll save you untold amounts of time, energy, and money.”

“Procrastination is a dream killer.”

“Sometimes in life you have to do what feels right.  Data and logic are fine, but life is about emotion and energy and intuition.  Trust fun.  Trust the vibe you get or don’t get from people.  It all doesn’t have to ‘make sense’ to be the right thing for you.”

“Show up in every moment as if you were meant to be there.”

“Building a supportive environment of like-minded, creative, slightly kooky people – like me – was instrumental in our growth.”

“Yes, of course a for-profit business needs to make money.  However, that shouldn’t be your only motivation for starting or growing your business.  Now more than ever, we need big-hearted, compassionate, love-minded people leading companies.  When you focus on how your products and services make a real difference to others, you’ll run a business that makes sense for your soul and your bank account.”

“The right moment is now.  The world needs your unique contribution.”

“You matter.  Your ideas matter.  Your point of view matters.  And if you don’t express it and work every day to share your unique gifts then the world has lost something truly irreplaceable.”

“You don’t need to meet someone to be mentored by them.”

“Strength isn’t pretending to be something you’re not.  It’s having the courage to live from the truth of who you really are.”

“Whether it’s in your personal relationships, business, or career, always look for a way to contribute to others.  To be clear, this has nothing to do with money or even adding value.  Often, the most impactful things you can give are your appreciation, the integrity of your word, and the gift of your full attention.”

“If you want lasting motivation, focus on the action itself, not the outcome.”

“The myth of scarcity (aka not enough-ness) is perhaps one of the most damaging illusions of human existence.  Now more than ever, there really is enough to go around.”

“Just in case you forgot, all those odd, quirky, silly, zany, ‘different’ things about you?  That’s your magic, right there.  It’s the source of your power, wisdom, and strength.  Embrace it.”

“Commit to creating joyfully, not stressfully.”

“Your intuition is one of the most powerful tools you have for leading an exciting, meaningful, and fulfilling life.  Trust that little voice that’s telling you to try something new or invest in a lifelong dream.”

“If we’re truly committed to a more loving and just world, we can do more than care.  We can act.”

“When you embrace the current moment of now – no matter how it shows up – you will instantly feel a sense of flow, peace, and power.”

“Create before you consume.  The secret to finding inspiration without getting lost in it lies in your C to C ratio.”

“Passion doesn’t exist outside of yourself.  It’s something you’ve got to bring to the party.  Starting now.”

“Follow your fear.  It’s a GPS for where your soul wants to go.”
