The hurdles in her life would have seemed insurmountable to many, but Marsha’s strength and imagination helped her overcome the odds to become a world-renowned business leader.

Marsha Wright Shares Her Secrets About How To Quit Your Job
It’s not a good feeling to be in a job that doesn’t provide fulfillment. Marsha shares the steps she prescribes to get the hey-ho out of your job.
- Save by dropping everything that you don’t need. STOP spending money on those things.
- Work on your business early in the morning. Marsha suggests waking at 4am, taking a vitamin C supplement and devote these hours of the day to your own success. This way, you’re devoting your best time and energy to your project instead of to your job. Best of all- you will have no interruptions from other people while you’re the most fresh and energized!
- Plan your week in advance. Know what you need to get done so that you can get it done.
- Stay hydrated. Stay healthy. Get plenty of sleep.
In our conversation, Marsha also said that it’s important to devote time every day to your significant other. If you’re in a relationship, then I do agree that it’s key to keep them a big part of your life. To have balance in your life, the people you care about need to be included every day in your activities.
Audio Books Help Marsha Make New Mental Connections Between Different Ideas.
If you’re a regular listener of the Video Crush, then you know that I value packing your head full of new ideas as often as possible. The best way to do that is to read and listen to as many books as possible. Marsha revealed that she listens to audio books at 5x speed! I personally can only retain the information if I listen at 2x speed. Here’s a list of the books that Marsha recommends you start with.
Retire Young, Retire Rich by Robert Kiyosaki
How To Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie
Leadership and Self Deception by The Arbinger Institute
Good To Great by Jim Collins
Outwitting The Devil by Napoleon Hill
Do you hear that little voice in your head that says you’re not good enough?
Even Marsha Wright struggles with this problem. She’s even given the voice a name.
You may be surprised that even an incredibly successful person, like Marsha, would still be wrestling with the voices in her head that introduce doubt into her thoughts. The truth is that it’s normal for anyone to hear these voices. The difference between most people and highly effective people is usually the way you deal with self doubt.
Shut Up Doug.
I love that Marsha has given her voice a name. She has assigned the voice a male persona called Doug. When a negative thought creeps into her mind voiced by Doug, then she has come up with a clever way to silence him.
She simply says, “Shut up, Doug.”
Boom. Doug loses his power. Marsha has fleshed Doug out and she characterizes him as a sniveling little nothing of a person that wields no power over her. When he pipes up, Marsha already knows that she has the authority to tell him to “Shut up.”
