Todd Herman, a highly-acclaimed “mental game” coach to Olympians, Fortune 100 CEOs, and mothers, has put together some excellent resources to help each of us to develop a consistently positive mindset.
But how do you apply that as a mother? Join April and Saren as they discuss their own “fails” and concrete suggestions to help each of us move away from the negative self-talk that leads to the negative “oww” cycle and adopt the beautiful and positive attitudes and actions that lead to the exciting “wow” cycle of thought and action.
It’s so easy to focus on the places where we don’t measure up, think about all the things we haven’t done that we meant to do, and get sucked into the “compare snare” that happens when we see all the awesome things other moms are doing, thanks to Instagram and Pinterest and Facebook and blogs. And as we feel bad about ourselves, we don’t exactly feel empowered to be our best selves.
Here’s a diagram of the “OWW” brain from Todd’s free video series (available for a limited time here):
What we need instead is a “WOW” mentality – one where we’re looking for the places where we’ve made improvements and celebrating our progress–which makes us feel great about ourselves and empowered to make even more progress.
