As a mom who owns her own business, I understand the tug-of-war that sometimes takes places in my mind when I feel like running a business and a family at the same time feels hard. Thoughts like:
“If I just knew for sure that this was what I am supposed to be doing, then I’d be all in.”
“Is this business really my purpose?”
“Can I really be a good mom and run a successful business?”
There are so many version of those questions that pop in our minds! So what’s the answer?
As a transformational life coach, my job is to help you understand how you are making decisions. 95 Percent of our decisions are made by our unconscious mind. Neuroscience research by Soon et al. (2008) demonstrated that the brain is subconsciously aware of our decisions before we have consciously made those very decisions. In other words, we’ve already come up with a decision or an answer, before we realize we have.
Think back to when you started your business. Did you stumble into it? Did you start it to help supplement the family finances? Did you intentionally set out to build a business? Did you feel like you knew for sure that this was the next step for you to take? Let me know in the comments.
Doubting whether or not you have made or are making the right decision running or starting a business is normal. What you do with that thought though is key.
Why is this important to address?
If you don’t have confidence that your business is what you are supposed to be putting your hand to in this season then you will self-sabotage, stay stuck, pile on mom-guilt, or only half-heartedly show up for your business.
