You just need to work harder (or until midnight) to get everything done.
Running a household, raising healthy kids, growing your business, fitting your daily steps in AND getting a healthy meal on the table by 5.30pm...it's no surprise you feel like you’ve got a lot to do.
There are at least THREE full time jobs right there ^^^
You’ve made to do lists and felt the heavy weight of failure as you end the day with a sub 10% task completion rate. Mourning the loss of your evening (again) as you drag your seventh coffee mug over to the dishwasher. Your spouse sits relaxing in front of the TV as you optimistically map out your tasks for tomorrow...
And we all do it. No one teaches us how to be effective as ambitious women who want to (over)achieve in every area of our lives.
What you need:
Crystal clear clarity on your personal definition of success. Without knowing exactly what you want to achieve...you’ll never know when you get there.
Without a clearly defined end goal, you’ll always feel like you’re endlessly running on the treadmill and never be able to sit back, and relax at the end of the day satisfied with your progress.
You can't do it all. What you need is a cleaner/nanny/housekeeper...
The reason most goals are not achieved is not because of your kids, or laundry or an unhelpful spouse. It’s not the long (endless) list of things to do.
Hiring additional staff members will certainly help temporarily...
...but as a purpose driven woman your list will ALWAYS be super long because you’ll always be striving for more, for better, for the next thing. And I salute you!
You’re not prepared to settle...because deep down you know that's not who you are, and that's not who the world needs you to be.
What you need:
More than any other personality on the planet...YOU need to know with laser focus EXACTLY what you need to do to achieve each and every goal, in every dimension of your life.
You need a daily implementation plan that ensures you make progress on your goals daily. Small steps in all eight areas of your life so you can confidently achieve, even when you're crazy busy.
You need to slow down (until the kids are older).
No! That's not who you are! You're not like most other women. You know you have a burning desire inside to take action and you KNOW you have what it takes to build a hugely profitable business AND nurture your growing family.
What you need to do instead is banish the “I’m too busy” mentality and instead leverage your inner warrior to bravely stop and take stock of where you’re holding right now.
Because anyone can set a goal…but achieving them is not as easy as it looks.
You only need to look at the $72 billion weight loss industry to see that women need more than willpower to make their dreams come true.
So why is it so hard to achieve certain goals?
Spoiler: It’s NOT because you’re too busy.
Goals can be hard to achieve when we don't have the tools or the strategies to achieve them (yet)...
...and sometimes we fail because we have unhelpful thoughts percolating through our brains that lead to self-sabotage. Negative programming residing in our subconscious mind that keeps us trapped inside our own thought prison.
What you need:
Before you set your goals, you need to look at why you're making those goals, and to dig deep and identify why you haven't achieved them before.
It takes a determined, purpose-driven woman to stop and take a hard look in the mirror. This deep work at the beginning of your goal achieving journey is what separates the winners from the whiners and sets you up for success from the get-go.
