I am shaking my head as I write this, but by now you know that I'm not afraid to call things as I see them and keep it real.
This week we've got to talk about something that casts a dark shadow on the journeys of otherwise rational, intelligent, professional, educated, accomplished, amazingly badass, fantastic women:
How many times have you caught yourself thinking or saying,
"I want to feel confident that I will be a Mom, BUT I don't want to jinx things."
You aren't alone...in fact the number of times I hear some version of those words is astounding.
Dictionary.com defines jinx, which can be used a noun or verb, as: one that brings bad luck, or the state or spell of bad luck brought on by a jinx.
I'm raising this issue because, perfectly reasonable women are denying themselves the confidence, peace, and CERTAINTY they deserve due to superstition and the notion some malevolent force will smack them down with "bad luck," because they dared to believe in themselves!
Can you relate?
I lived in fear of jinxing myself too and it did nothing FOR me--all it did was keep me small and insecure.
Don't do this to yourself.
Here's what the jinx is really about:
BELIEVING YOU ARE NOT WORTHY OF THE GOOD YOU DESIRE.
The jinx is the very essence of a limiting belief.
Limiting beliefs will keep you small--wallowing in fear, lack, scarcity, and STRESS.
Has believing in the jinx done anything to HELP put your baby in your arms?
My ladies know that the real jinx is NOT believing in themselves.
They choose to make their own "luck" by putting more faith in their desires than their fears and ACT accordingly...which is why they are insanely successful.
Decide you will be one of them.
Change your mindset, change your results.
