Advice from Marci
“Don’t pick something because you think you can make a dollar or two. Pick it because your soul calls you, because it’s why you are on the planet.”
“Everybody has their own rituals. Find what works for you.”
“I find that preparing myself with the silence of meditation is really, really important.”
“In the middle of silent meditation retreats, I got the ideas for NY Times bestsellers, ‘Chicken Soup for the Woman’s Soul’ and ‘Happy for No Reason'”
“Ask the questions, ‘Who am I here to serve,’ and ‘what am I here to help them with?'”
“Stories connect with people emotionally and get your audience hooked in. A good story has a crisis or a problem, a turning point moment, and a solution. From the stories share the takeaways and how to apply them in life.”
“I used to feel like ‘How could I possibly write a book about happiness when I’m not happy?’ Well, who better to write a book about happiness than someone who started off on the journey not happy? Someone once said, ‘Our mess is our message.'”
“I love schedule. We’re built for routine. When you train yourself to write at a specific time every day, your body and mind respond.”
“There’s no greater service than touching people through our words and speech.”
