Do I have this right.. you eat last, all of your kids – and even your husband – are dressed and ready, and you’re runnin’ out rockin’ a wet mom bun and clothes you drug out of the closet.. You think they match.
Your kid is in karate lessons and every club comin’ and going.. You invest in everyone in your house… hell, even the dog has had swimming lessons but, not you – no investment in yourself. You hold it all together, you are the glue – but you’ve never once taken the time, or the money, to invest in yourself?
And writing this non investment off as a selfless act of parenting sounds great.. But is it really selfless – or – is it a built in escape hatch.. Today, I’m sharing with you 3 reasons you should make an investment in yourself TODAY!
1. Investing in yourself, no matter what the resources, tells your brain – I KNOW I CAN DO THIS!
When you say the ‘goal’ out loud – you’re making a wish. When you write it down, you are setting a goal, BUT when you create a plan & make the investment to work at it – you are WORKING a goal. A goal with no legs, goes nowhere. Investment & plans.. They give your goals legs!
2. You are less likely to QUIT when you’ve made an investment.
Pay for a personal training package, and see if you don’t get your butt to the gym. Once you put forth an investment, you are IN IT. You are committed. If you want to make real change – invest.. It’ll hold your feet to the fire.
3. If you knew how to do it, and didn’t need the accountability – you’d already have done it.
Stop convincing yourself you don’t need help.. Freebies on pinterest & google can only get you so far. If it’s worth working for – be willing to receive help for it. Think about how much more productive you could be if you had someone with a plan – invest in a plan.
How are you going to start investing in yourself – and if you’re ready to just jump Jack (yes that is a Gilmore girls reference), and ready to CRUSH your goals, combat your overwhelm, and create life systems in your weeks.. Let’s do this, work with me 1:1, you can get the application here.
