  • Marie:     Hey, it’s Marie Forleo and you are watching MarieTV, the place to be

  • to create a business and life you love, and this is Q&A Tuesday. Today’s question comes

  • from Myriah and she writes:

  • Dear Wonderful Marie,

  • Here's the sitch. I'm in my mid 30’s (God help me how did that happen) and took a huge

  • risk in my mid 20’s to pursue what I always wanted: to live in Europe and turn my scientific

  • career into one focused on mainstream media.

  • And then, what was wonderful became a nightmarewhich included the death of my boss, and

  • my work environment became extremely toxic. I left, encouraged by all to take a position

  • back in North America for a prestigious government agency.

  • Looking back, I realize I never wanted this new job but now I'm here and hating it. I

  • should have listened to my heart and volunteered for Habitat for Humanity in Malaysia instead.

  • I would have had NO money but been so happy.

  • If I leave now, the people who hired me have a lot of clout and could make sure I never

  • work in this field again. How can I reconcile my true calling and do what’s right for

  • me with possibly destroying some very influential connections?

  • Thanks so much,

  • Warmest, Myriah

  • This is an awesome question, something all of us can relate to. Well find ourselves

  • at crossroads in our own life and we can often struggle with. Do we take the safe road or

  • do we follow our heart, which can often feel a lot riskier, at least in our minds.

  • There are two important things I want to talk about today with you. The first is about burning

  • bridges and what I want to tell you is a tweetable:

  • What's highest and best for you is always what's highest and best for everyone around

  • you.”

  • I guaranteed that by hating your job, you are not doing your influential connections

  • any favors. In fact, you're probably doing more harm to your reputation than if you left.

  • Telling the truth always win. As it relates to leaving your job, of course you got to

  • do this in the right way and take full responsibility for what you're about to do. It’s one thing

  • to send your boss a text like “I'm going to Malaysia to build houses. Peace in your

  • crease.” It’s another to set up a proper meeting and really co-create a game plan so

  • you're not leaving everybody in a lurch.

  • The second and more important thing I want to talk about today is a crucial test that'll

  • help you make the right decisions every time, especially when they're huge decisions just

  • like this one.

  • One of the first things you said is “I'm in my mid 30’s, how did that happen?”

  • It happened because it happens. The next thing you know, you're going to be sayingoh

  • my god, I'm in my 60s, how did that happen?” You got to realize as you get older, time

  • goes by faster and faster, and before you know it, you're going to be 80 like that.

  • Here's what you got to do: you got to sit yourself down right now and do the 10-year

  • test. Ask yourself 10 years from now will you regret not doing this, whether it’s

  • moving to Malaysia or changing careers or starting your own business. Really imagine

  • your future self; you 10 years from now. Will you regret not following your heart? I’ll

  • tell you one thing you will regret: not moisturizing. Trust me. You're welcome.

  • But back to the big things. I did the 10-year test when I was 25 and trying to figure out

  • if I should pursue dance as a profession. You got to realize I was broke, I had hardly

  • any dance training and sadly 25 is over the hill in the dance world so I sat myself down

  • and I saidMarie, when you're 35, will you regret not having gone for this whole

  • hip-hop thing?” In a nanosecond, my answer washell yes, I’ll regret it.” In that

  • moment, all wishy washiness went away; I got focused and I kick some serious dance ass.

  • Best decision of my life, and yet another opportunity to show you this.

  • But seriously, for the love of all things holy, trust me when I say, life is short and

  • it’s getting short by the minute. You must do the thing you're dreaming off and you must

  • do it now.

  • I believe we all have a direct line to the divine and the call comes through our heart.

  • Know this coming from someone who takes a lot of risks, what you can produce in 10 years

  • will absolutely astound you but you have to start now. The other thing is I have never

  • ever ever met anyone who’s regretted following their heart.

  • That was my A to your Q. I hope it helps. Now I would love to hear from you. Any big

  • decisions on the table? If so, do the 10-year test in the comments below. Tell us 10 years

  • from now what will you regret not doing or creating or starting. Or if you want to do

  • something else, tell us about a time in your life when you made a really big decision and

  • followed your heart.

  • As always, the very best discussions happen after the episode over at

  • so go there and leave a comment now.

  • Did you like this video? I really loved it. If you did, subscribe to our channel and I

  • would be so appreciative if you shared this video with your friends. If you want even

  • more awesome resources to create a business and life that you love, plus some personal

  • insights from me that I only talk about in email, get those sweet buns over to

  • and sign up for email updates.

  • Stay on your game and keep going for your dreams because the world needs that special

  • gift that only you have. Thank you so much for watching and I’ll catch you next time

  • on MarieTV.
