Happy Friday Mama. And Mama’s Daily Dose is… having everything does NOT guarantee success. Let’s get moving before we get interrupted.
Are you one of those moms that likes to have all her ducks in a row, making sure she has everything in order before she makes the next step? Many moms out there wanted to make sure that they set themselves up for success in motherhood. They waited you know, till they had the partner, the house, the car, the income, everything. And when they had the kid, things still weren’t perfect. They had all the new baby gadgets, the Snoo, that swing… everything. But that doesn’t guarantee you success.
We live in a society of having. Having all of these material things, the car, the house, the kids, the partner, the newest gadget, the next, the biggest trends, whatever it is, and that is not going to guarantee you success. You can look at all these people that look like they have all the money in the world and things like that, they’re still not enjoying life. And you can also look at people that don’t have a lot, but they enjoy life to the fullest. So focusing on the haves does not guarantee you success. What we need to focus on is the being. Who do you want to be? Because those haves don’t guarantee success. But when you become the mom that you want to be when you become the person that you want to be all those haves kind of fall in place too.
Mama, your action today is to focus on the BEING rather than the HAVING. And now what does that mean? All right. So if you want to run a marathon, that is your goal. What you want to become first is a runner. How do you become a runner? You start running and when you become a runner, then you are the person that runs a marathon, and you have that marathon finish. So instead of focusing on the marathon, you focus on becoming the runner. Today I want you to focus on who you want to be and who you want to become. And if you don’t already please leave a rating and review for this podcast. Have a fabulous weekend and a great day free of mama guilt because you deserve it.
