If anyone was capable of making me groan against American trite optimism you’d think it would be Marie Forleo, but no, I am a total convert. If you ever needed a kick up the backside to get your ideas off the ground you just need to watch one of Marie Forleo’s videos on YouTube. It seemed wrong to not mention her as one of my heroes during my optimism theme.
So why does her positivity get me so excited? I’d say it’s because she’s trying to get us to DO STUFF. One of her motto’s (she has several) is “You don’t have to get it perfect. You just have to get it going”. Optimism can become so introspective – I love that this is quite the opposite. Just take a look at her latest video, an interview with Seth Godin, you’ll get the idea.
