Mompreneur, you never “have to.”


Time for *Mindset Monday* and it’s all about making choices.

There are a lot of things we do, that we don’t love to do.

We often say, “I have to…”

Make sales calls.

Go over the budget.

Do the dishes.

Do the laundry.

It seems we don’t have a choice. We are obligated.  We believe we are a victim of our circumstances. We are stuck doing something that we “don’t want to do.”

This is a complete lie.  You don’t have to do anything you don’t want to do.  You don’t have to make sales calls, but you probably WANT to so that you can increase your profit.

You don’t have to do the dishes, but you probably WANT to so that you have clean dishes to eat on.

Everything we do is a choice.  If we want certain rewards or results, then we WANT to do what it takes to get those.

Starting now and for the rest of the week – think about all of the choices you make.  When you find yourself feeling obligated doing something you “have to” do, you can remind yourself that it’s a total lie.  Do you want to do it?  Why or why not?  If you decide that you WANT to do it, then own that choice.

I want to go over the budget… so I can have money in the bank.

I want to do the laundry… so we have clean clothes to wear.

I even want to pay my taxes… so that I don’t go to jail.

They are all choices.  Own them and love them.  Start saying, “I want to.”

Don’t be a victim.  Be the creator of your life and success.

Have a great week!
