So, What’s Stopping You from Success?
The Courage Revolution
[bctt tweet=”Whatever dream you have be your authentic self”] If you think you don’t have the courage to build a business think again. Recently I was at a function when someone asked me what do I do. Pardon me- I am not French but I do love my day job of being a mum its freaking fabulous, sure its crazy and exciting times but I can be soulfully successful and a mum- right?
I spoke of my time as a mother as live carefree with all the benefits to stay at home and my time as building a business with time by my side. You see many mums think they can’t succeed when they have children or after having babies and many mums need to baby proof their business to avoid any delays or upsetting anyone.
So to the working mamas out there in the universe you can have your all not have it all, it takes planning and preparation and if you can boil an egg you can time out how to be the boss of your universe and find the time to work some days and take the next off. How I explain it is I work in snapshots of time and how it can be done is a juggling act but far from not possible.
What I find extraordinary is the over commitment mums place on themselves. That being said there is nothing stopping you from starting small and playing big.We can head in the right direction with courage and determination.
The Impossible Thinking
Our thinking determines how we feel and how we act. If we don’t have the right attitude or on the right thought path it’s difficult to achieve our goals. As soon as we start dreaming big, a little voice inside of us says,
Oh no that’s impossible for someone like me. I don’t have the right qualification, background, education, upbringing,——–(fill in the blank).
We stop ourselves before we even start with all the “reasons” why our idea will fail. What would happen if you looked at your life through a lens of possibility? Think about all the reasons why your goals are important and how they could work.
I was at an event where I was speaking for free about health and wellbeing and the owner of the company just turned up at the event this was unexpected and it blow me away she spoke with me and this was my chance to talk up my stuff well she loved it and asked me for a proposal and days of thinking that I lacked confidence (yes even the confident ones can have their ego talk you down) well she hired me! I received the call and I was shocked and honoured. The problem was I then had to do the big presentation and training and I didn’t, know if I could and I wanted to decline the offer but I pushed through my zone of discomfort.
I don’t have enough time
I have heard this excuse a 1000 times with my clients and I probably have used it too. Everyone has the time so if you can’t make time you don’t want to or can’t be bothered. I still am waiting for that friend to invite me over for a bbq (aussie cookup) I’ve only been waiting years to see her new home, “I don’t have time to go the gym, I can’t afford to cook healthy it costs too much and don’t have time to prepare healthy meals.” As a busy mum of 2 girls, and a husband who travels a lot for work I do find it challenging to find time to do things I want to do. Whenever I make time, I feel guilty.
I was at the park when my friend said you must make time you will be a better mum. The time excuse is a reality, but we need to make our dreams a priority.
To get over the guilt, I remind myself of how achieving my goals will benefit my girls, in the future and while I sit here writing this working on my future self and my business, goals, dreams I am making time and making it a reality come true, never in my wildest dreams would I be so happy and helping so many women now so no matter who you are mum, woman, girl, business woman, corporate, self-employed, part time what is your excuse?
