Once you change the inside, the outside will begin to change as well
How do you know whether you’re being successful as a mum when there’s no measure? No pay rise, no promotion, no pat on the back.
In this episode of Mum-to-Mum Monday you’ll find out what success looks like in your role as a mum so you can go out and start to achieve it.
My guest today is SuperMum, Jody Moore.
Jody lives in Roseville, California with her husband and four children who are 14 months, 3, 9 and 10. Jody is a Speaker, Life Coach and Momologist. That’s right, a Momologist. She’s an expert on mums.
Through her work, Jody helps mums understand and define success and believes that happiness is a skill that can be taught. Once Jody figured out how to change her own reality to a much happier one, she couldn’t keep it to herself and went on to found the Bold New Mom community.
In her decade of experience bringing up children, Jody knew her role as a mum was the most important one. Yet, like a lot of mums, felt it was the one she was the least qualified to perform well. This led her to learn about how to be successful in the ‘job’, and to reprogram her mind to achieve it. She realised that negative emotion and disappointment can actually be used to serve us.
Jody will teach you that being successful will help shape other areas of your life. In doing so, you can relieve yourself of the pressure to always have to get it right; drop your innate desire to continually keep your children happy; and start to retain your own identity despite the relentless demands of motherhood.
I am delighted to have Jody on my show today as she’ll help you understand that success is measured by things within your control, and will hand you the tools you need to excel as a mum.
