Mums Don’t Let This Be Your Biggest Expense Amidst Covid-19
Updated: Jul 19, 2021
Dear worried mum,
I know right now you may have a niggle of panic, anxiety, worry and overwhelm creeping in that little bit more than usual in these slightly scary times. The daily news is certainly not helping the situation and although I do not intend to get political in this post it is worth noting that a heavy focus on the media at present will absolutely not do anything to alleviate your wavering emotions and thus it certainly won’t produce any positive action, purely because of the sheer scale of it. We are human and we live by emotions, they dictate our thoughts and actions, so if we want to have fruitful, productive days, then we have to be conscious about what we are feeding our mind. I can pretty much assure you that if you are finding your days are being wasted away, or you your time is not being used effectively or you are getting heavily distracted you will do well in tracing back throughout the day what you were feeding your mind and what continued to run through it.
Stockpiling and Homeschooling
Many mums are stockpiling, fretting about home-schooling, and panicking about how they are going to last during this time. I am a mum of four so I totally get it. But here is what I know also, although it may seem like a time to hide, lay low, not make plans, listen and react to the media this is very much not the expansive thing to do. This time will pass and we will get over this point in time and contracting in moments like these won’t benefit you during or after this period. Operating at your highest level will, even if it feels like such a push to do so right now. I can guarantee you that your future will thank you for it.
Because the biggest cost you will ever have in your life, period is NOT taking action. And by action I mean in the right direction that is authentically aligned to your life, growth and goals.
If I have learnt anything from working with all the amazing clients I get to be apart of their wonderful journeys is that when action is not taken:
Missions are left unfulfilled
Money is left on the table
Relationships are left to neglect
Dreams are allowed to float away
Why is this even important?
Because we have one life and you should want to ride it until the wheels fall off and not regret all the things or the one thing you didn't do.
How to do Life Successful as a Mum Amid Covid-19
Tony Robbins reminds us that, life is never determined by conditions but by the decisions we make in certain conditions, we always have a choice in how we respond or how we proactively behave.
Whether that is building a new you with greater self-belief and confidence, conquering limiting beliefs and anxiety, starting or exploring new opportunities in business, levelling up your skills and yourself for a new career, re-building your marriage or relationship, getting into the best health and shape of your life, making time and space for your long treasured aspirations all so you can live your best life, be the best example for your children and contribute to the world the way you want to.
Yes I have helped my clients with all of the above.
It is possible.
But if you don't have the...
You need to achieve those things, ask yourself what is it costing you staying as you are and not getting the help and road map?
Focus, Family and Growth
If you know you need to do something about your situation, about the way your life is shaping out for you and your family and just for yourself, make the choice today and just say yes to yourself. Relegate the situation in the world which will blow over and choose to focus on you, your family and growth but also how you can contribute positively.
There is only a simple difference between those that are on the path they want to be and will come away not really affected by the current issues in the world today and those that are not.
And it is absolutely not rocket science. But so simple that many people do not realise the power in it.
You need to make the choices and decisions that your future highest self would make, saying yes to the things that the woman you want to become would say yes to even if you are scared in your current reality.
If you do not start, thinking, behaving and choosing like the highest version of yourself, there is pretty much a guarantee that you will remain the same in 1,3 or 5 years as you are today.
Taking Action Despite Fear, Worry or Anxiety
That thing that you think is too scary to invest in do it.
The big decisions you need to make for your life make it.
That coach/mentor you know you need support from get it.
That difficult and scary conversation you know you need to have, have it.
