The following Marie Forleo quotes are a great source of wisdom that can help anyone lead a life they love.
Marie is an entrepreneur who has been called by Oprah Winfrey, "A thought leader for her generation." You can expect a lot just from knowing the name of Marie's new book, Everything Is Figureoutable.
I have read Marie's book. She isn't someone who is only talking the talk. She has walked the walk over and over again.From her experience has come some remarkable wisdom. When she says, "The key to success is to start before you are ready," she knows because that is exactly what she has done herself.
Following her lead will set you apart from other people who also have a good idea. So many people make the mistake of wanting it to be perfect. Because of that, they procrastinate, procrastinate, procrastinate.
Don't do what they do. Follow Marie and start before you are ready.
Also, attached to the idea of starting before you are ready, is a way to gain the clarity you need to succeed. She says, "Clarity comes from engagement, not thought." Isn't that a great insight?
That is not the process so many people use. They stay up in their head and make the mistakes experience, itself, could have eliminated.
When it comes to fear of failure, another great Marie Forleo quote says, "Don't be afraid of failure, be afraid of not trying in the first place." That same idea is used by Sarah Blakely. Sarah became the youngest female billionaire in history.
When two successful people using the same idea, well, that would be a major clue. How about you? What are you are going to focus on? Failing at something, or failing not to try at something? Your choice will decide the level of your success.
