On Tuesday, April 12, 2016 we checked out Marie Forleo’s “Q&A Tuesday” on her Marie TV YouTube channel. She addressed the following question from one of the viewers of her show:
“What suggestions do you have for someone who is a kind and positive person yet does not want to be viewed as a liability who is weak and naive?”
Marie’s reply went as follows: “Positivity is a powerful strength. Suppressing who we are is not an option. The future of business is about being more connected to our humanity, not less. This includes our positivity, kindness, enthusiasm, vulnerability, and most importantly our heart.”
Marie goes on to mention, “As human-beings, we need the right conditions to survive and thrive. We are only as good as the people we surround ourselves with. It’s vital that we put ourselves in the right eco-system, one that gives us the chance to flex our strengths. When we put ourselves in the right conditions, we blossom. When we put ourselves in the wrong conditions, we wither and die.”
Lastly, “When we know what makes us strong, it’s important that we don’t settle for less. There is no prize for suffering. We must embrace our strength of positivity and be it daily. Our enthusiasm for life is contagious. It also gives other people permission to be kind, positive, enthusiastic leaders too” says Marie.
What we love the most about Marie’s message is that it covers many critical points when it comes to realizing our greatest potential. Embracing our strengths, regardless of how other people may view them is always vital. Not only is embracing our strengths vital to our success, it is also vital to our overall well-being!
