Back at end of September, I asked you what the final quarter of 2018 was going to be about for you. Would you make it count, OR succumb to more of the same?
In the weeks since I asked that question, my ladies are experiencing yet another baby boom, my private clients are absolutely crushing it, and the women in my Mindset Reset™ course are getting amazing results.
I am sharing this, because it demonstrates what’s possible when a woman makes the DECISION to succeed on this journey.
Want to know the #1 thing that will sabotage that success? EXCUSES.
Excuses are toxic. They destroy dreams. They perpetuate suffering.
What’s even worse, is when you perpetuate their bullshit, you become an accomplice to their crimes. Here are 3 of the most insidious:
1) I might fail. The road to success is paved with failure. Get over it. Think of your personal heroes. Not one of them just frolicked through a field of daisies on the way to success. They failed HUNDREDS of times on the way to realizing their dreams. Failure is an amazing teacher–smart women leverage the lessons it offers, rather than torturing themselves over it. That doesn’t mean it doesn’t hurt like a mofo, but at least you have the satisfaction of knowing you went for it, instead of spending another day in cowardice. Avoiding failure is avoiding success. Fact.
2) I can’t afford it. Bullshit. This is one of the most heartbreaking ways women on this journey self-abandon. The opportunities to make money and find the resources needed to make your dreams come true are everywhere. What gets in the way of seeing that TRUTH are the judgments or stories we have about money. I can’t go into debt! I can’t “spend” that kind of money! My husband/partner won’t “let” me. If you go into debt, let it be for the shit that really matters. Don’t spend money, INVEST it in whatever will help you bring your baby home. Show up to money conversations with your partner like an adult–not a little girl asking for Mommy or Daddy’s permission. Tell them what you want and how you intend to get it. It’s almost 2019.
3) “They” will think I’m crazy. This will sound harsh, but it’s true: No one is reallythinking about YOU. When they think of you, they are thinking about themselves in the context of YOU. Their judgments. Their expectations. Their rules. Friends, family, co-workers, and your doctor? They have their own lives. At the end of the day, they get to go home. YOU? You have to live with YOU and your choices. Your happiness and fulfillment in this life is YOUR responsibility. The desire in your heart to be a Mom is there because it was meant for you. What other people think, do, or say is none of your business. What IS your business is living YOUR life, not theirs. If people think you are crazy, you’d be in excellent company: Amelia. Serena. Oprah. Steve. Elon.
To what degree are these particular excuses operating in your life?
If there is part of you asking, “Rosanne, why the fuck are you provoking me like this right now,” my answer is simple. I want you to be a Mom.
There are 28 days left in 2018, use them wisely.
My ladies make no excuses.
They are more committed to being a Mom, than the sabotaging, bullshit stories that threaten to get in their way–THIS why they are successful AF.
Decide you will be one of them.
Change your mindset, change your results.
Intrigued? Here’s an exercise to take this to the next level…
Cop to your biggest excuses.
What are your lamest excuses? List them. Get to know what’s holding you back on this journey–it’s the only way to overcome them once and for all. When you shine light on them, they try to scurry away like cockroaches.
If you are DONE with excuses and ready to live this journey in the kind of unstoppable HELL YES that will support your success, I’m here. xoxo
