Every single day, busy women live with a “can do” attitude! It may not feel like it all the time especially when motivations is low. I see women everyday doing what has to get done, even those last minute things that get throw on their plates. We get it done!
First and foremost, let’s celebrate all that we have accomplished in our day today, in our week, month and even so far this year. I don’t know about you, but I am not really good at celebrating my accomplishments. There is always more to do, so I keep plugging along. There really is so much to celebrate though. Think about each area of your life and all you have done to keep things running smoothly. You start when you feet hit the ground in the morning, or maybe even before that. You go strong all day, juggling all of the areas of your life, and keep going until the lights are turned off each night. You accomplish so much in each day, it is worth celebrating! You truly are AMAZING!
How in the world do you get it all done? You use my favorite tool every single day without even knowing it. You deal with the things that come your way one small step at a time. You do it naturally. You ask yourself “what do I need to do next?” without skipping a beat. Baby steps are how we move through life and get done what we need to get done. You are a natural at it!
How do we keep this “can do” attitude as our lives gets busier and busier? After all, others know that we are “get-it-done” type of a people. What happens is, you are, many times, the first person people turn to to ask more of because you are known to be reliable. As you and I well know, too much can get piled on, then we find ourselves no good at anything.
We naturally “get things done”. Let’s strive also to become pros at knowing when to say enough is enough. This is tough and I struggle with it all of the time. We are great at taking care of and helping others. When others ask more of us, let’s get to the point where we can instinctively ask ourselves:
- Does this new request fall within what I consider to be most important to me?
- Will this new request take time away from something else that is more important?
- Do I have more time and energy to give it?
- Will this new request be enjoyable and fun?
- Should someone else really take care of this new request?
Being an amazing “get-it-done” woman requires amazing tenacity to graciously pass on requests that aren’t right for us, those we love and what is most important to us.
Make It Happen Action Step:
- What can you do in the next few days to celebrate all that you have accomplished? Do something to celebrate you!
- Remind yourself of the questions listed above, so when more is requested of you, you can instinctively turn to them to know the right answer.
I celebrate YOU today, and I celebrate ME! We are in this life together doing amazing things. Keep going with your “can do” attitude!
