Be an Intentional Mom

INTENTIONAL –
in·ten·tion·al
/inˈten(t)SH(ə)n(ə)l/
Done on purpose, deliberate

com·mit·ted
/kəˈmidəd/
feeling dedication and loyalty to a cause, activity, or job; wholeheartedly dedicated.

i·den·ti·ty
/ˌīˈden(t)ədē/
The fact of being who or what a person or a thing is.

Interesting how a thing can easily let you know what they are. For example: A TV knows it is a TV – it comes with the big name, and the manual and you can even get great resources online and reviews. A TV cannot wake up tomorrow and say, I’m a radio now or a phone.

There are three things we can learn from the identity of a TV.

1. A TV knows their identity:

Yes, a TV is very clear on what it can or cannot do – No confusion there.
Are you clear on your identity?
Do you know who you are?
 Have you really been intentional and committed to defining who you are?
New moms, now is a good time to get the whole “mom-identity” all figured out. Put those babies’ sleepless nights or growth sprouts feeding sessions to good use and spend time thinking about who you are now as a mom.

Empty nesters, the children are all grown or you are waiting to resume your grandma duties, it is never too late to define yourself.

Of course, moms with children in school (I know they are off for the summer) but make sure you take sometime to figure it out – whether in the bathroom or while the children are playing outside.

You should be able to answer the question of what can I or cannot do. Watch the Mom chat – “Am I just a mom?” here <<<

2. A TV is proud of its brand:

Asides from the obvious brand name plastered on the rim of the TV. When you switch on a TV, the brand name pops up boldly and it even makes its entrance with music.
Are you proud of your brand?
Are you proud of who you have become?
Are you proud of who you see in the mirror or even the thoughts that pop up in your head?
If you are proud of it – embrace it fully;

So you have decided to be a working mom – embrace it;  

you are stay at home mom – love it;

you are a career mom – rock it!

“Be proud as a TV”, ( if there is any phrase like that lol).

3. A TV cannot change who they are:

This is where we are sooooo different from a TV, we can always make a change. If you don’t like your mom-identity, you can make a change to do something about it. It may require a drastic change or just a small one. But we have the ability to make a change. We are not “doomed” like a TV.

So my question to you are:

1. Do you have a brand?
2. Do you love the brand you are projecting?
3. Are you willing to make a change if you need to?

We love helping moms figure this out. You can get on a FREE 30mins call with us – yes, it is completely free!

We would also love to here from you – whether you would like to proudly share your brand with us or you would like to figure it all out. We would love to hear from you.

Book your call here – www.momleader.com/momchat
Decide to be “intentional” and “committed” to your mom- “identity”.
I’ll see you around.

Be a High Performer – Momleader Mondays

BE A HIGH PERFORMER: Our core value

Happy Momleader Monday. We are excited to share with you our next core value which is being a High performer.

A Momleader is a High Performer, that is, we know what we want, and we put in the work everyday to be the very best version of ourselves. We are intentional in developing ourselves and we are willing to learn from others. It means that we are not afraid to get feedback from our trusted sources and other people in our lives to help us be better moms. There is no pride in asking for help and advice from a momma that has been there. Heck, we can all use some tips every now and then.

For us, being a mom leader also means it is not about perfection, it is about getting the job done well and quickly.  We are not afraid to say, “No” – which can be really hard for moms who put a lot of pressure on themselves to do everything. Sometimes we have to allow ourselves to settle for the “this is good enough”. Do the towels really have to be washed today or can you simply put them in the dryer and fold them until tomorrow? Does the kitchen floor really have to be both swept and mopped? Don’t fall into the trap of doing everything everyday and having to have your home perfect. I had a client that naturally put that pressure on herself and she had to re-shift her mindset on this. There are a lot of time saving techniques that can be implemented that can help in being efficient at home as well without sacrificing your personal standards. You might say, yes, the kitchen has to be done, yes, I must wipe down the cupboards everyday, Yes, I have to have that bed made perfectly or I can’t function. That’s fine. Adopt the tools that can help you succeed. Perhaps being a high performer means doing online grocery shopping or having a friend help you with dinner or meal prep. I encourage you to think of ways you can save time and bring more efficiency into your home.

What are some of your favourite ways to save time? What “No’s” do you struggle with the most?
