My recent two weeks in Costa Rica reminded me of the value of stepping away from your normal life so you can begin to see the bigger picture stuff.
Gently swaying in my hammock high above the mangrove trees I felt a lightness from my normal daily routine. The things I’d normally be busying myself with simply didn’t exist.
No housework, meal planning, food shopping, cooking and clearing up. Without emails to respond to, my weekly newsletter to compose or blog posts to edit – my mind was relaxed and open.
While the kids were off exploring, I’d lie in my favourite hammock and read. My kind of bliss!
It was during one of my hammock sessions that I began thinking about my business.
It’s been two years since the launch of Project Me and I’m proud of what it’s growing into. Mothers from all over the world sign up for my Monday Motivator newsletter each day and I get a big smile on my face and say thank you by name out loud whenever someone new joins my list.
I began thinking about my goals for Project Me. I’ve never wanted my business to be my blog. Selling advertising space on my website or doing product placements within my blog posts are not the direction I want to head.
I get the biggest joy out of helping others. My ‘zone of genius’ is showing mothers how to set goals that’ll make a big difference to their everyday happiness and to give them the tools, guidance and accountability to take action and see things through.
I can write blog posts about that but I know that real, long lasting, positive results come with a more hands on, step by step process. Accountability, clear action steps, bouncing ideas off of others. We all need to feel inspired and motivated to keep going, especially when life feels challenging.
Reading a blog post about goal setting is never going to get you anywhere near what joining an online programme will do.
So I began thinking more about my upcoming 4-week online programme Back to ME! and wondering if I’m clear enough about what an utterly awesome and life changing experience this is for those who participate.
My last Goal Diggers group of 40 mamas from all over the world was incredible! Witnessing all of their achievements over that month made me feel like a proud mother hen and the private members group continues to be their place to seek advice and share wins.
I’m super excited to be running it again with even more bonuses and fresh videos and audios.
At this time of year it’s pretty impossible to break free from normal responsibilities and get the kind of perspective I got swinging in my jungle hammock.
But my Back to ME! programme is designed to give you a fresh outlook amongst your day to day busyness.
In just one month you can find your focus and set goals that’ll help you feel in control and on top of your busy life. You’ll recognise your time sucks and poor habits that aren’t serving you or your family and turn them around into something positive.
You can start living with more purpose instead of just dealing with whatever’s in front of your face each day.
September is the month for fresh starts and new ways of doing things that feel more productive and rewarding.
I have several great ideas brewing for even more ways to help you live a happier, more balanced life and this Back to ME! programme really is the foundation on which to build on. It’s the perfect way to really get going on your Project Me with loads of personal guidance from me.
If you haven’t got the Project Me Life Wheel® yet, grab it here for free. It’s the very first step in figuring out what needs your focus first.
If you decide you want to take it deeper and join in the programme, it kicks off on September 14th. Click here for full details.
One more revelation from my hammock… Rather than continuing to move around the Project Me Life Wheel and blogging on a different life area each week, I’d like to experiment with topics relating to personal goals, getting clear about what you want and any potential blocks that stop you from moving forward.
We’ll look at things like perfectionism, guilt, worry, intolerance and how to let go of beliefs that are no longer serving you.
In the comments below, let me know what you think. Do you like the sound of this subtle shift in direction for Project Me? Would you like more help with keeping a positive mindset, overcoming negative self beliefs and being your best version of you more often? Let me know what other topics you’d like to read about. I’ve got a fresh open mind!
Thank you for being your amazing self.
