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

  • if you want to create a business and life you love, and I think that you do. This here

  • shindig is called Q&A Tuesday. This question comes from Ms. Chelsea and she writes:

  • Hey, Marie. Thank you so much for all that you give to us constantly. I watch every Tuesday

  • and one question I have is, how do you always come up with all this great content? Do you

  • ever have days when you just feel uninspired or like you don’t have anything new to say?

  • And if so, how do you still give us constantly great episodes of MarieTV? I send my people

  • a weekly newsletter too, but I'm afraid of uninspiring days or future days where I won't

  • have much to say or will have covered all the topics that I can think of. Do you have

  • any tips for how you keep your well from running dry? Love, Chelsea.

  • I was so excited to see this question for a lot of reasons. First of all, I think everybody

  • can relate to this. I certainly can. I think anyone who creates anything fears the well

  • running dry. We've all had thatoh crapmoment, “I'm totally done, I have nothing

  • else to say, everything’s been done already and everything I create from this moment forward

  • of course is going to be crap.” If youve ever felt this way, whether you're an artist

  • or another type of creative or you're a business owner like me, who has to create content week

  • after week, this is the episode for you.

  • I'm going to answer this question in the framework of what I do which is creating content for

  • this show, my weekly newsletter, my blog, all that online jazz. If you're a creative

  • who has no intention of creating regular content online, which if you want to make any money

  • you should definitely consider, I think you're still going to get value from this episode.

  • The first thing I want to say is I am not some creative superhero. Sometimes my creative

  • well is as moist as a Duncan Hines cake. Other times it’s as dry as a saltine in Death

  • Valley. Notice I haven't taught you anything yet; that’s because tip number one, or shall

  • we say, tip number dump, is do dumb sh*t. I just did like five dumb things and as far

  • as I'm concerned, the dumber the better.

  • Giving yourself permission to be dumb is actually a really smart way to activate your creativity.

  • I say find a dumb buddy and get stupid together. Here’s my dumb buddy; she's the dumbest

  • bitch I know. In fact, she made me say that and she’s making me sing this song right

  • now. How dumb was that? Now I'm not necessarily saying you should be silly in your content

  • if that’s not true to your brand, but being silly while you're creating, that can really

  • open up some new ideas.

  • Tip number twothemagazine rule.” Retreading old ground is not a sin. When it

  • comes to content creation, you got to remember not everybody saw that blog post you did back

  • in 2011; if they did, they probably don’t remember it as well as you do; people like

  • to revisit the same topics again and again. I've been doing MarieTV for years now. Q&A

  • Tuesdays, we revisit the same themes all the time.

  • You'll also see this in the magazine world. I’ve been a subscriber to O Magazine for

  • years and I love it, but check this out: De-Clutter your Life appears on three covers. I don’t

  • get mad at O Magazine because I'm happy to read that again. I always need to de-clutter

  • something in my life. And you know what? You see repetition in every facet of the art world.

  • Georgia O’Keefe painted those vajayjay flowers over and over and sitcoms use the same basic

  • story lines and Taylor Swift is always singing about breakups and rappers are always rapping

  • about the party and then the after party and then the party after the after party and then

  • the hotel lobby.

  • Tip number three, and this is my biggest tip of all, is a mantra I use for a bunch of things

  • like money and love and ideas, and yes, it’s today’s tweetable:

  • When it comes to creativity, there's always more where that came from.”

  • If you're more spiritual, let me remind you of one of my favorite quotes from my friend,

  • Marianne Williamson: “God’s the water and you are the faucet.” This is awesome

  • so you don’t get it twisted and think that all of your brilliant ideas are coming from

  • you. It requires a little bit of creative surrender and to get your ego out of the way

  • so a higher power can come down and work through you.

  • Before we wrap up, I just want to tell you I so relate to this question. There are so

  • many times when I feel like I have nothing else to say here on MarieTV, so to help you

  • and to help all of us, I'm going to do something a little different today and I want to continue

  • the teaching part of this episode in written form right below this video.

  • Thank you so much for that question, Chelsea, I hope it helps. Now I would love to hear

  • from you. When you're feeling creatively tapped out, tell me three go-to strategies that always

  • work for you. If you want to share more than three, that is awesome, but please make them

  • as specific as possible.

  • As always, the best discussions happen after the episode over at the wonderful land of

  • so got there and leave a comment now.

  • Did you dig this video? If so, subscribe to my channel and share it with your friends.

  • If you want even more awesome resources to create a business and life that you love,

  • plus some personal insights from little old me that I only talk about in email, get yourself

  • over to and please 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.
