So here’s the scoop! I need you moms out there to help me with an assignment!! The question that I have to find an answer to is this:
“What results do moms want in your lives from my area of 'expertise', not only as a certified leadership parenting coach (through the John Rosemond Institute), but also as a mom who has “been there and done that” and loved her role and journey through the motherhood experience? What questions do you want answered? What struggles have you experienced that you need a new perspective on? What challenges have you faced that require another experienced point of view? What dreams do you have for your children, your marital relationship and your home that can come true through introspection and motivated reflection? What would you like to see happen in 2014, as this new year dawns, that would turn some of the dynamics around in your home?
That’s one question...here’s the other:
What (from your perspective) would keep you from being able and willing to get the results you truly want? I don’t want to put words in your mouth but here are some things that I know keep me from going for the things I want and need:
the fear of change, the issue of finances, the challenge of being on the same page with my spouse, time to initiate and follow through on a perceived need, etc. We all have reasons for being “stuck” where we are with regard to many things in our lives, including relationships.
I have been given this assignment by the editor of another book that I am collaborating on in 2014, due out around September, entitled “The Expert Success Solution II.” It is very exciting. It is a book about taking the steps to getting what you desire. My contribution will be from the point of view of a mom, family life and our relationships. Very interesting...
So, help me out? I want to give you the gift of insights and training that I've received in response to your comments about what you desire and hope for from my blog and other writing projects...an exchange of sorts. So write down your comments, reflections and take on these questions. Even if you are farther down the road and your children are grown, think back on what types of questions you had, what areas you needed help in, what questions you would have asked someone had they offered you some "sage advice"? I can’t tell you how often I have looked back on my life as a mom and thought, “Wow, I wish I had known that when I was just starting out!” or “That information would have been invaluable about midway in my mothering journey!” Inquiring minds want to know: what results would you like to see take place in your relationships and in your home? Let me know...let's have a gift exchange!
