Stay Calm Moms! A strategy to keeping cool and making rational decisions with your kiddos!

Have you ever lost your sh*$ on your kids when they ask you to add another task to your already busy day and felt:

1. Annoyed they asked
2. Ashamed later on knowing it could have been handled better without “freaking out”
3. That you missed a learning moment for your family

Well if you said “NO”, Kuddos, you are a stand-out parent.

If you said “YES”, you are a normal and just like me. (insert shocked emoji)

I can’t even BEGIN to tell you how many times this has happened and I felt awful, embarrassed and like the worst parent EVAH!!!

But after knowing I wanted a better “WORK-LIFE” balance with less stress, I dove into personal development and STOPPED THE PATTERN.

NOW, I choose my words differently and I wanted to share this nugget with you. It’ not always perfect but it’s a work in progress.

In this video I share a strategy that gives you:

1. More time to make a rational decision
2. a teaching moment for you and your family
3. the ability to stay calm when you have 10 things on your plate and knowing one more thing will cause you to “LOSE IT”

Did this help? If you want a better “WORK-LIFE” balance, start geeking out on personal development.

Game-changer for sure!

Putting it all out there,
Nicole

Are roadblocks stopping you?

roadblock

Having to chose between changing career paths or building an online brand, I was at a crossroad. Was I willing to give up the very thing I loved? Working with others and helping them live a healthier life?

Living in Virginia with my family mainly being a “stay at home mom, part time business owner” I knew I needed more in my life and career. And this doesn’t mean a sugar daddy on the side, although as long as he was rich I doubt my husband would care. (Just kidding!)

But the problem is that I didn’t know if had had it in me to follow through because this is my biggest flaw. I start but rarely finish. Why? Afraid mostly, afraid of failing. I am so damn competitive I didn’t want to fail. What’s funny is that I always tell my kids failure is great, it’s how you learn. You must fail in order to grow! But I guess the rule didn’t apply to me. (Just kidding)

I tried program development, no luck, I looked into brick and mortar, huge gamble. I attempted the online business by myself and failed.

It wasn’t until after my mom’s passing that I realized it was now or never. I had to make a change. She said I missed my calling, I should have been in TV. hahah (she was biased)

Life is too short to take it for granted. Life is too short for excuses and no follow through! If you have a fire in your belly, you must go after it. Soon after her passing I signed up for the IDEA Conference with the hopes I would hear a lecture that would ignite the fire again. And sure enough, there was and I hired a coach. And here I am a few months into the program, following through.

Can you relate to any of this? Do you have a dream but seem to have a roadblock that stops you? (Mine was follow-through) Once you acknowledge the roadblock you can attack it and get it pushed aside. Write your daily goals down, what needs to be accomplished. So many of you have goals of weight loss. What is it that is stopping you?

Here are a few assignments/questions I give my clients on their 7 Day Challenge :

What are my 3 goals today : (doesn’t have to be fitness related)

1._______________________

2._______________________

3._______________________

Exercise Plan:______________________

What will I do for myself today?

What are my roadblocks and how will I stay on track?

Night Reflection:
Look back at my goals, did I achieve them? If so, thats great! If not, why? What is in my way and what can I do to achieve them?
Try it out for a week and watch yourself reach your goals!!
Have a great week,
Nicole
