Sorry I haven’t posted in a while. I’m helping clients launch some very exciting businesses and working on a new program to help women step into their executive power. Good stuff to come! Now, here’s what’s on my mind today…
While everyone is making 2017 resolutions, let me remind you of something. Time and the calendar is a human construct.
Every day is an opportunity for resolution and growth.
I probably know more about growth than I publicly want to admit. I’ve been as low as possible and I’ve been a millionaire using only $40 to get started. I know a little about facing the broken version of yourself in the mirror and still doing what needs to be done to feed the children. What I know most is that quitting bullshit that does not serve you is as important, if not paramount, to reaching your goals, personal and professional. Stop reading that crappy book, walk away from the relationship that makes you feel less than, quit the job that goes nowhere.
Make space for the inspired, the divine, the fated.
If you must plan for the magical New Year, plan on quitting the bullshit. Here, let me help.
- Stop calling yourself a Mompreneur.
It classifies you as less than an entrepreneur. Either you are a boss or you’re not. Playing the woman card means you can’t hack it in the “regular Olympics”. You are enough. Your vision is enough. Own it.
2. Quit putting unrealistic time constraints on things.
No, none of us know how much time we have. And, it’s usually shorter than we want or deserve. But, do you want to linger around years after you made your unrealistic goals – only to reflect on the relationships you neglected to make those goals? Or, do you want to die with purpose on your breath? Just start. Do the thing, it will take on a life of it’s own. Maybe that’s a year, maybe that’s a decade. Enjoy every fu*&ing minute of this life and quit putting ungodly restraints on yourself. Have some goals, abso-freaking-lutely. But, let them do their thing as you make beast moves to realize them.
3. Quit settling.
If you *do* want to reach your goals quickly, may I suggest you quit settling for less than you deserve? Want a better car? Get disgusted by the one you have. Want a better lifestyle? Don’t tighten your belt, raise your damn standards. Raising your standards and refusing to be anything but the vision of yourself you want is a real quick way to get what you want on a fast track. Would that ideal version of you do what you are doing? No? Then cut that shit out.
4. Stop seeing the best in people.
I try to live a positive life and appreciate everyone for their unique gifts. I love each and every person I know. That does not mean I give them credit for qualities they do not have. I’m THANKFUL when people are not as capable, nice, trustworthy, etc as I would expect. It GROWS ME, it causes me to find fulfillment in what I give myself, not what someone else can provide
5. Quit buying “get rich quick” books and program schemes.
You know how those authors got rich quick? They sold you on their system. Garbage. Yeah, the guy at the top is rich, you sucker. If getting rich is your goal: find a problem, fix it. (^^,) There, I saved you $299.99
Just my own meandering advice. Love and light to you all! Love yourselves enough to quit the crap and embrace self-development.
