12 Steps to Thrive: Arianna Huffington
by Louise D'Allura on August 7th, 2014

In this video brilliant business guru Marie Forleo interviews The Huffington Post’s Arianna Huffington about her new book Thrive.

It's a 17 minute interview but filled with loads of gems.  Uber successful Ariana talks about how a health crisis was the catalyst to revisit definitions of success.  What did it really mean?  Her time turning inwards and thinking of the lessons her mother taught her she shares the wisdom in Thrive.

She talks about how in modern society we only seem to identify two metrics of success - money and power, but like a two legged chair this will never work!!!  She introduces a thrid metric - helping us to THRIVE.  

In this interview with Marie Forleo she talks about the importance of:
  • Sleep - getting a bit more each night - just 30 minutes more can make a massive difference.
  • Time famine - we all feel it - that we are running out of time and it impacts our sense of wellbeing.
  • Prioritising what really matters - Everything changed in her life the day she realized she had time for all the important things in life.  Sometimes we feel the slaves of email – we feel we have to do everything perfectly.
  • Stop answering emails an hour before sleep.  Read books instead!
  • Completing a project by dropping it!!! Yes we need to be giving ourselves permission to let things go!
  • Perfectionism - Comes at a cost - robbing us of joy!
  • Creativity comes from the depths of our soul so when we tap into the joy, wisdom and intuition we come up with our best ideas. 
  • Not missing the moment - being present to what is going on
  • "Changing the channel" when we are worrying too much, obsessing and getting anxious over a situation.
  • Acknowledging every human being we come into contact with - striving for a genuine connection, making eye contact and saying hello! Lucky my friend and Inspiring Professional Speaker Kerrie Phipps is writing a book on this topic - Do Talk to Strangers!
