This video talks about predicting your own success as opposed to setting goals. The first strategy assumes success and simply clarifies the steps you need to take to get you there. The second is more a hope that someday it will work out.
There is so much emotional labour involved in being a woman and a mom. Our stress, exhaustion and frustration levels are often high and sometimes they cause us to develop mommy martyrdom. This is when we routinely put others before ourselves to the point that we often feel angry and resentful. Check out my video to learn more and to find out how to ditch the mommy martyrdom, reclaim some time for you and empower yourself.

We all know that hitting the snooze alarm gets us a one way ticket to Grumpyville, so why do we do it to ourselves?
I challenge you to go to bed earlier and replace your snooze alarm with 10 minutes of meditation the second you wake up.

You have a thought.
The thought becomes a worry.
The worry becomes multiple worries.

The fear begins to distort and exaggerate.
You begin to have physical symptoms.
(headache, stiff neck, increased heart rate etc.)
You are having snowball thoughts. Learn to identify them so that you can stop them in their tracks.
