Aired on 11/02/2014 | CC tv-14
In 2013, Marianne Williamson announced her intention to run for Congress in California's 33rd Congressional District. Despite her best efforts, she did not win.

Now, Marianne reflects on what she learned from the experience. "It taught me what I should have already known: To only listen to myself," she says. "With politics, there were some technical things I didn't know. So I didn't know that I could just ignore them and do what I thought."

In the video above, Marianne shares what she wishes she knew going into the campaign, and reveals whether winning was important to her.
