After so many years of being a single parent, I must say that I have had many, several, and an abundance of mistakes. Especially with my firstborn. She was definitely trial and error. I had no clue of what it meant to be a parent. However, by the grace of God (literally) lol.... she survived my parenting mistakes! And kudos to her because she has grown up to be an awesome, intelligent, resilient, ambitious driven, goal catching, visionary woman. There is nothing that she can't accomplish or do.
So what is my point in all of this bragging on my child and confessing my shortcomings as a parent? The point is to keep striving to get better and to do better. That is part of being Worthacious. Finding the different aspects of your life and perfect where you slack. I slacked in my parenting. Not intentionally but with the help of others, things were brought to my attention where I needed to level up. Worthacious living isn't just about traveling, enjoying family and friends to hangout, go to work everyday to earn a paycheck so you can pay your bills and put food on the table. What is this all about? It's about everything! Repeat. Living Worthacious is about everything. It's about handling and being the best parent you can be. It's about handling your finances so you can create a legacy for your family. Living Worthacious is about accomplishing everyday tasks and feeling good about it. How many times have you worked your 8 -10 hour shift knowing that you have the intention to do the laundry and clean the house? Only to find out that you have no motivation to do so. And your task is left undone and it piles up so much that it is now a week long task.
How can you get to the point where you level up and get sh*t done? I'm not a life coach nor a counselor. But I am someone who has been through this experience and can tell you what I did and still doing. Because yes, sometimes life situations can throw me off track. What matters is that you get back on that track and take off running! Here's what I have done:
*Surround yourself with people who hold you accountable. Join or start an accountability group. Or just ask your bestie to be your accountability partner.
*Read or watch webinars and videos on successful people that you admire. Follow their social media pages. You can learn from them and on how they became successful.
*Locate a mentor. Yes, this may cost you some pennies but in the end it is worth it. It's called "investing in yourself". Sometimes we take longer trying to figure out things when a mentor who has already figured it out can shorten your process. This will get you to level up real quick.
So what's this all about? It's all about you hun. ;-)
