Want to fast track your home business to profits as though it’s on steroids? Look to your toddler for inspiration.
Yep, you heard me. Your little ones are your best teachers when it comes to achieving goals.
If you’re an entrepreneur running a home business with children under 7 years old, then consider yourself lucky to have this opportunity of a lifetime.
Children are such angels on earth
They see you for who you are with unwavering love. Pure magic. Only your children can see your soul at your deepest core, and with unconditional love, trust, confidence, believe you can do anything. Magic only your children can bring to you and drive huge transformation in such a short period of time.
Children trigger you
But each and every one of them is a custom lesson for you. Time is seemingly against you, but this is the magical period where time stops. It’s no longer linear. So many sleepless nights, cranky days past, and I bet your home business has transformed so much in this short little time. The notion of not enough time suddenly doesn’t add up, almost a broken equation in math. I started my online home business when my son was 1 year old. He is turning 4, and it’s mind boggling to me I’m investing 5 figures into my home business today.
It’s pure magic. …if you so choose, that is
This applies if you care for authenticity, integrity, and a big heart to truly making a positive impact on other people. Your tot is your best teacher with unconditional love, no matter how you project onto them; horribly, even frequently. They will not give up on you or love you less or see you as any less.
I remember being exhausted from taking care of a baby. Every free minute was spent on my home business. There were lots of struggles; no matter how hard I work, how studious and disciplined in following strategies and homework from my biz coaches. There were $0 months, and I felt rock bottom. Yelled at my kids so much I feel guilty from taking my feelings of failure on them. Truly saddened when they yell at each other. Feeling terrible, and a failure as a mom, and as a biz owner.
Feeling like a failure as a home business owner, and as a mom
All are great actually, because I care a whole lot. But being sappy poor mom isn’t serving my kids one bit. All the while I feel like shit. I decided to surrender and be with the flow. It took me some learning, because to be totally transparent, I had no idea what surrender means or feels. I just only wanted to make money.
I decided I need to work on myself first. My kids have forced me to look at what I really want in my life, what type of mom I want to be, what type of lifestyle I like to lead, and where I need to strengthen my mindset to handle the gap of where I am to where I want to be. Their happiness is my utmost priority, and that requires my presence. I needed to work on being in the moment. I started to sleep more, work hard to focus on play time with only one goal to have fun, and I had to strengthen my trust in faith.
Mirror mirror on the wall …
In the example of my need to yell at my kids. I reflected on what I need to work on about me. Why was I yelling so much? It all stems from my growing up feeling not being heard. And yelling is a way for me to cope as a child myself. Once this awareness surfaced, I listened more because I would never want my boys to feel unheard, unseen, or under valued.
Be grateful moms, pull out your hair if you must. But in 3 years, you will look back and think to yourself, if I only knew, then I would have chilled out and spend more time playing with my angels without distractions.
3 ways my children has coached me to owning my personal power:
- The ability to trust the universe to live your moments to moments presently
- The ability to trust yourself through the workings of yourself, your willingness to uncover what holds you back to grow and expand
- The ability to trust your children as whole allows you to relax and give them room to figure their own way with less worries
These are abilities supporting your personal power, your energetic brand to vibrate at the highest frequencies! We all want to be the best mom we can be, and become the best home business owner as a result is such a gift.
