Everyone makes mistakes, right? Recognizing and learning from those lessons – while juggling everything else happening your life – is hard. Smart moms who achieve success learn from these lessons, rather than go through them again.
Here are five mistakes that smart moms never make twice:
1. Worrying. Sigh….On the road to success, there will always be people who are envious of you or don’t care for you. Attempting to make everyone happy robs your attention from what’s most important to you. Smart moms know that that being focusing on their “haters” achieves nothing productive. They can dismiss those people and concentrate on the ones who truly matter. This simple skyrockets their productivity and confidence. In life, there will always be people who don’t support the things that you do throughout your life. Learn what you can from those situations and make adjustments, if necessary. For the most part, though, you’ll simply want to ignore them. Nothing good can come from worrying about other people.
2. Running on Emotion. It only takes a single emotionally-charged choice made in haste to ruin things. This could involve a partner in your personal life or a co-worker. Emotionally charged situations can cloud your judgment and lead to hasty decisions. Smart moms have figured out how to step back from the commotion and clear their heads before making any important decisions. All women need room to learn, grow, and rise (in her business, in her relationships, and in life) and she has little patience for people trying to hold her back or who don’t seem committed to helping her achieve her goals.
3. Blaming Other People. When bad things happen to us, it doesn’t take much to blame these problems on someone else. Smart moms know they must take responsibility for their choices, decisions, and actions. Assigning blame to other people doesn’t lead to anything productive, even if someone else is legitimately at fault. Tony Robbins said it best, “If you’re gonna blame people for all the sh*t, you better blame them for all the good too. If you’re gonna give them credit for everything that’s f*cked up, then you have to give them credit for everything that’s great.” Taking accountability for your life and being true to yourself is a crucial step towards fulfillment.
4. Lying. Dishonesty is never a positive thing. This is particularly true in high-pressure situations. Despite the satisfaction, you may feel from dodging a political bullet, dishonesty just about always ends up dragging down for your future. Sure, there are some smart moms who get down like that. Be that as it may, they are at risk of getting caught in a lie and losing what they have accomplished. Furthermore, the mirror effect states that you attract what you are. So if you are dishonest, you will attract dishonest people into your life – yikes. Thankfully, the same is true with attracting honest people.
5. Living in the Past. The past is where our mistakes live; it is also home to our learning. To live in our past, no matter how memorable, is entrepreneurial suicide. Passion and potential is always looking for a new way and a new place to live. Living in our past robs us of the joy and energy that we need for today. In order to live full of fulfillment and happiness, we need to learn what we can from the the past, and then let those memories go. Release the past, stand firmly in the present, and prepare to step confidently into the future.
