You know the saying, “You have the same amount of hours in a day as Beyoncé?” Well…I think she just works her ass off, sun up to sun down. Have you ever really looked at yourself and evaluated your work ethic? I mean REALLY. I had a hard look at myself recently and although I knew I had a good work ethic, I realized I kept talking about how I wanted more success for myself but wasn’t putting the effort out there to get it. The more input the more output, it’s just that simple!
A big motivator for me was finding something I truly LOVE and not letting it feel like work. Now I want to get up 2 hours before my daughter to answer e-mails and to take the best care of my body so it can fuel me during the day. I can honestly say I almost crave having a head start on my day now. My husband has been getting up early for years and I never really understood what drove him…now I get it. There was a motivation behind it, no one wants to get up early! I think we are all lazy deep down and would love to lay in bed until 10 AM but it gets us nowhere.
Have you been thinking about making a change? Do you want MORE for you and your family? Do you want to leave a legacy for your children? It’s not all for your significant other, you can have it all too. So go get it. Start small and put in an extra hour after your kids go to bed, it will snowball after you take that small step! The great thing about the world we live in today is now you can watch your kids in the playroom while you sit at your desk and work. Twenty years ago that was not an option! So, put your thinking cap on and see how you can use your gifts and talents to further YOUR career.
With this change I have made recently, I am having to get smarter when it comes to my wardrobe. I am not going to lie, I can now go 3 days without washing my hair (all you ladies know this is an accomplishment, it takes time to train your hair to do that!). I’ve really tried to stay focused on the things I know that are practical and enjoy wearing. I love a knit dress and a cool pair of shoes. I had been OBSESSING over these Golden Goose Deluxe Brand sneakers and now can’t get enough. I literally can throw on a v-neck and ripped shorts and these shoes will totally make the outfit. Not to mention, super comfy!
My challenge to you today is to think about what you want for yourself and go get it. But remember to look good while you do it 😉
HAPPY FRIDAY GORGEOUS!
