011: A Step-by-Step Guide to Making your Dreams come True | Victoria Kate

Sometimes the heart sees what is invisible to the eye

[H. Jackson Brown, Jr.]

untitled-design-6

Today’s episode of Mum-to-Mum Monday is all about fulfilling your goals and ambitions – the key word being fulfilling. That’s right, we take those dreams right out of your head and make them come alive.

My guest today is SuperMum, Victoria Kate. Vicky and her 9 year old son Finley live just a stone’s throw from the beautiful beach in Bournemouth, on the south coast of England.

Vicky is living proof that our dreams really can come true as she follows her life long passion to work for herself as a Life Coach whilst looking out from her desk to the sea. And after 24 years of having the dream of being an author in her head, she is finially writing the book that she’s always wanted.

Today, Vicky will ‘give your heart eyes’, as she so eloquantly puts it. One of the foundation stones to this is learning to understand what your goals really are and making them your own.

Not what your family, or your partner or society think your goals should be. Just you.

This way, when you attain them, you’ll finally be truely fufilled, rather than left cold and wanting the next big thing.

Through the use of positive thinking and visual images Vicky will step us through the process of how to be successful in achieving everything our heart desires, and not be restricted by limiting beliefs.

Using the metaphore of a lighthouse, Vicky will teach us how, as a mother, it’s important to keep our own light shining strong and bright so we can light the way for our children rather than casting dark shadows behind us and letting them find their own way.

010: The Mind-Blowing Power of Saying Thank You

Keep your face to the sunshine and you will not see the shadows

[Helen Keller]

Be grateful.

Say thank you.

We say it to our children all the time.

But are we practicing what we preach?

There is so much sunshine in our life, so much to be grateful for.

But we get so busy, we often don’t notice.

When things go wrong it’s easy to notice. The frustrations. The annoyances. The tiredness.

But finding things to be grateful for takes skill, and a change in mindset.

Helen Keller kept her face to the sunshine despite not being able to see or hear.

Can you do the same?

In this weeks episode of The Friday Café, Michelle Dawson and I talk about how you can keep your face in the sunshine by practicing gratitude.

006: Stop Being a Victim with this Simple Mindset Shift

You can be pitiful or you can be powerful but you can’t be both at the same time.

[Joyce Meyer]

Feel like tearing your hair out?
That’s understandable .

Running at full speed to get everything done?
Yeah, me to.

Fed up with the relentless demands that keep coming your way?
I get it.

Feeling sorry for yourself?
That’s up to you.

Because you choose how you show up in the world.

Are you the mum who moans about how hard it was to get the kids out of the house that morning?

Or are you the mum that, despite fighting that very same battle, chooses to be cheerful?

Sometimes a warm smile or a friendly good morning makes a world of difference. If only to yourself.

What will you choose SuperMum?

004: The Definitive Guide to Loving Yourself

It’s not selfish to love yourself, to take care of yourself and to make your happiness your priority. It’s necessary

[Mandy Hale]

love-heart-hand-romantic

You tell yourself,

I can’t cope with anything else.

I’m not capable.

It always goes wrong.

That pesky voice in your head. There’s always something negative to say, always a reason to keep you down, always telling you not to bother because you’ll probably fail.

But what if you could zap that inner critic with a hefty dose of self love and replace it with an inner cheerleader?

Because you are worthy.

You can cope.

And you’re an amazing mum.

Start to believe it and you’ll start to see it SuperMum.

In this week’s episode of The Friday Café, Michelle Dawson and I talk about the benefits of loving ourselves unconditionally. Because until we can, how can we expect love in return?

001: Secrets of a SuperMum | Lisa York

Learn to be a SuperMum, simply by changing the way you think

[Lisa York]

Lisa York - SuperMum Podcast

In this very first episode of Mum-to-Mum Monday, you’ll find out about the life of an ordinary mum, thick in the trenches of motherhood and dealing with the highs and lows that come with the job title of mum.

My ‘guest’ today is SuperMum, Lisa York. Yep, that’s me!

English born, I live in Canberra, Australia with my husband Bernard, sons Fred (6), Alex (5) and Benny (4) and daughter Elizabeth (2).  My husbands Navy job takes us all over the world and we moved to Australia in January 2016 after living in London for three years. Next, who knows where.

Passionate that the traditional definition of a SuperMum is flawed, I’m on a one-mum-mission to change it. I mean, really. It’s impossible to impeccably keep so many balls in the air at once, hold it all together and never shout at your kids.

But finding out my son had leukaemia just days before his third birthday was a life-changer. And it gave me confidence to shout from the rooftops that a positive attitude is all you need to be a SuperMum.

Easier said than done I agree. But in this episode, you’ll find out how to begin on that journey as I weave it into my own personal story of having four children in four years and eight months.

Get to know me, my life as a mum, my positive mindset, and how The SuperMum Podcast came about. And I’ll teach you the single most important thing about being an incredible mum and how to go about achieving it.

I’m so excited to share my story with you today. It’s about mindset. The super highs and the crippling lows. It’s about motherhood in real-time. Warts and all.

In today’s episode, I talk about:

  • The real definition of a SuperMum and how to truly be the hero of your family
  • How I felt when I first heard the words ‘your son has leukemia’
  • How to give your children a stronger, more capable, more confident and happier mum
  • How you can live a full and satisfying life, despite all the directions you’re being pulled in
  • Why podcasts are the weapon of choice for busy mums and what make The SuperMum Podcast so special
  • How to see your failures and frustrations as the foundation stones to living a happy and fufilled life

 

 Hope you enjoy todays show!

 

Tell me what you think?

SuperMum is all about community, so I’d love to hear from you. Do you want to ask me a question? Do you have a comment on this first episode? I can’t wait to hear from you.
