If you are a mother with a loving husband raising fantastic kids or You are a single mom that bravely nurturing amazing kids, I salute you! Being a mother is the hardest yet the most pleasurable profession in life as a woman.
And as a mother you have big dreams for your family, right? You want to pursue that dreams but you don’t know how to start? I am not a mother yet but I want to help encourage amazing mothers to achieve their dreams by sharing these lessons I just learned from Mia Redrick.
Are you ready?
First, YOU HAVE TO MAKE A COMMITMENT TO YOURSELF
“Loving yourself is not being selfish at all; it is an act of taking care of yourself to make more impact to your loved ones”
Love yourself, it is a song of Justin Bieber that made a million hit. It really has a good point. Before you can love others you have to love yourself first because you cannot give love to others if you fail to give it to yourself.
Being a Mom doesn’t require you to look haggard and messy. You have to stand straight and pamper yourself as a way of recharging. Tell the world, “I’m a Mom and still look amazing.”
And every time you wake up is an opportunity to grow, to glow, to learn new skills, to meet people with the same dream as you. You have to surround yourself to those are wiser than you because that’s where growth happens.
You have to be a champion in your own way so you can produce a champion kid. Agree?
Second, DON’T LIMIT YOURSELF
“You become limitless when you overcome what holds you back.”- Lorri Myers
You know, being a Mom you might say, “I’m already a mother, I’m just like this, I don’t have time for that, I’m contented with this kind of life, I still have to do a lot of chores.” But come on, you can still be the best mother to your child while pursuing the dreams in your heart, you can be far more than a housewife. You can be an entrepreneur, you can be a book writer, you can earn millions at home. It is just a matter of persuading yourself that you are capable!
You have to believe in yourself. Believe that you deserve everything. Limitation is just a word.
Third, CHANGE YOUR ROUTINE
“Success is nothing more than a few simple disciplines, practiced every day.” –Jim Rohn
Let me ask you, what do you do during your spare time? Do you watch shows in TV or Browse your facebook, Twitter, and Instagram? Oooopps! I think you have to change your habit; you have to shift your actions because what you do today brings value for tomorrow. Create a habit that will make you closer to your dreams, that’s the rule. If you are chasing a specific dream, you must do small simple things each day, remember “Big cannot exist without small things.” You have to allot certain time specifically to work towards your dreams.
Fourth, DON’T DELAY PROGRESS
“If you are not willing to learn no one can help you but if you are willing to learn no one can stop you. BE UNSTOPPABLE.”
There was a survey made. The researchers asked the unsuccessful people who are in 60s what is their biggest regret in life. The majority answered, “I did not take enough risks for my dreams”.
This is the example of what Analysis Paralysis is, you keep on planning without fulfilling it little by little and then you will realize you are already old and you failed to try it. What is the logic there? Never delay your progress!
Don’t live a life full of regrets!
“For anyone who is not courageous enough to take risks will never accomplish anything in life.” – Muhammad Ali
Lastly, MARRY YOUR DREAMS
“There are more than billions of people in the world. Don’t let the opinion of 1 stop you from getting your dreams.”
No matter what happens, no matter what circumstances it might be. You have to keep going! You have a dream because you have a family, and whatever dream is that, that meant to be fulfilled. Marrying your dreams is like marrying your husband you have to say these words of commitment, “I promise, from this day forward I will pursue you, think of you each day, I will not stop till I have you.”
A happy mother creates a happy home. Believe this, you can achieve your dreams no matter how long it will take the thing is you have to start now. Now is the time to throw all the excuses.
I am excited about your Journey!
