Why I’m writing this…
Over the last few months, I’ve been going through a period of reflection. It started around the time of my return to work after Dad’s funeral. People said to me a few times “you’ve had a rough few years”. But, looking back, it’s kind of difficult to pinpoint a year without a major life event, or two, or three… In the last 10 years we’ve had two babies, moved countries twice, had the kids repeatedly hospitalised and surgeries, had a husband that worked away for 7 years while I raised the kids, went through 4 redundancies (3 in December at Christmas I might add), a husband who had 3 unrelated head injuries within 18 months, I badly broke my arm, and we helped support my Dad through a 2 year battle with terminal cancer.
So yeah, it has been a lot.
I have survived it well, in a good place for the most part. I just kept on holding it together and keeping on doing what needed to be done. Until the end of last year when we actually lost Dad. Then I kind of felt lost.
It wasn’t just grief, I also realised at some point I’d (unsurprisingly) started surviving and not living.
I don’t know exactly when it happened. But at some point, my positive mindset had shifted, and I’d started bracing myself for “the next major thing”.
I’ve been getting some coaching and starting doing some mindset work, so could get back to feeling more like the motivated, ambitious, positive Kat.
More like ME.
It’s a work in progress, but I’m getting there.
Who inspires me?
I’ll give you a clue – that would be YOU! You see, along the way, I’ve met dozens of others who’ve voiced to me that they feel similar to me. Sure, everyone has different challenges, but others have mentioned to me that they feel stagnant. Like they want to be achieving their dreams and living their best life, but they are busy being a mother and a wife and don’t know where to start. Or they find it impossible to do on their own.
I think it’s also easy, when you have children, to put their needs first and your goals on the back burner.
What I’m going to do about it…
So, I’ve decided to start a group. A group called “The Motivated Mum’s Club.”
It’s a motivational group for Mum’s to come together, inspire each other, hold each other accountable, and support each other towards achieving their dreams.
I will warn you now – I have selfish intentions for starting the group… I’m starting it because I want this group. I want a safe, inspiring, supportive space, to hold me accountable and have everyone inspire me with their awesomeness. And, I’d love to share this awesome space with you and help you also achieve your heart’s desire. Helping others achieve their goals makes me so happy!
Come join us, for fun, friendship and motivation…
If YOU would love to be part of a group of women all working towards making 2018 their best year yet, then please come and join us at The Motivated Mum’s Club (MMC).
What we’ll learn about and work together towards…
In my day job, I have developed a framework to successfully coach businesses towards success using 8 Business Fundamentals as the foundation. I’ve helped dozens of businesses with this framework, and it got me thinking – what about if I took my passion for helping women achieve success with their goals, and I developed a similar framework to use as the foundation for achieving success in our personal lives? It would be freaking AWESOME, and something I’d personally love.
So, I’ve done it. I’ve applied the same techniques and framework to a system to help people achieve success with their personal goals, focussing on 10 major parts to life.
The 10 parts to life…
The 10 parts to life that we will focus on together in The Motivated Mum’s club are:
- Personal Growth
What does that actually look like?
Each month we will focus on one part as the main theme, with a break over December/January. Which means that a twelve month period, we will have covered and learned tools to support us in achieving success in all twelve areas:
I’ve intentionally placed the breaks over December/January, because that is when we in the Southern Hemisphere have our kiddies on long summer break. During this time I want us all to focus on our families, and recharge for the following year. I plan to still have the conversation running during those months too, but it won’t be so intensive.
What tools will we learn?
Each month I plan to have experts guests in the theme area to come and teach us tools in that area. I personally can’t wait to soak up all their knowledge! I already have some AMAZING guests lined up to inspire and teach us.
(If you’d like to be a guest expert then contact me here).
How to join:
Joining the group couldn’t be more simple, and best of all it’s FREE to join!
All you will need is:
- A Facebook account, as we will run it via Facebook Group
- Be a woman (it’s not compulsory to be a Mum, but it’s mostly targeted for Mums)
- Want to be motivated, and work towards achieving your life goals
- Be prepared to participate in the conversation, and encourage others in their journeys
It’s FREE, so what have you got to lose?
In the meantime I’d love to know: how do YOU best stay motivated?
