Single Success

I’m training Master-coaches this week and a few of them are single moms.

They are creating a business.

Refusing to let what seemed like past failures get in the way.

I see their strength and I remember, yep – those are my people.

The “I’ll keep going until I figure it out.” type.

The ones who say, “I’m going to decide my life will be better than I ever imagined.”

It’s the mindset of “I’ll use all of my experience for the good of others. No matter what.”

Just like you.

Strength. Courage. Belief. Goodness.

That’s my type of person.

I think you’re amazing.

Keep at it Mama!

Mindset Monday: When you just don’t want to.

It’s time for *Mindset Monday* and sometimes, we just don’t want to.

We don’t want to work.
We don’t want to face our fears.
We don’t want to do… anything.

When you’re running a business and managing a family, the days of “I don’t want to.” will come.  Sometimes more often than we’d like to admit.

Lately there’s been so much on my plate and so much on my mind, that I’ve noticed my brain wanting to sink into the “I don’t want to” slump.  Thankfully, I know that “I don’t want to,” isn’t true at all.

Just because I don’t feel like something in the moment, doesn’t mean that I don’t want to do it in my life.

Of course I want to work.  I have an amazing business that helps people every single day.  It provides for my family and allows me the satisfaction of making a difference in the world.

Of course I want to face my fears.  If I don’t, I’ll simply stay stagnant and end up dissatisfied with life.  I won’t help anyone if I stay stuck.

And of course, I want to do the housework and take care of my family.  I’m building something amazing in our home.  It’s so worth every effort that I put in.

So just because I don’t feel like it, doesn’t mean I don’t want to.

I want to show up.
I want to do the work.

Even when it’s hard or inconvenient, I want to do it.

I’m all in.
How about you?

Have a great week!

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!
