When you are happy it spreads to everyone around you. It makes everyone feel great and makes life seem just a little easier.

They very quickly go back to the same state of mind that they were in before the windfall. This is because their mindset stays the same. Their genetics, attitude and mindset essentially stay the same even if their circumstances have changed. The Happiness Mindset Having a positive mindset is essential to feeling happy.

  I have been reading Jack Canfields Success secrets, in fact while I sat in the sun in Spain last week I read the whole book. The secrets really resonated with me because I am a believer in having good habits that promote success and happiness in your life as well as striving to reduce stress and facilitate greater work life balance in your life. As mompreneurs and working mothers I am sure you will appreciate this, . Then today I was with my interns and was telling them about the book when they began to be really interested. Their faces lit up and they leaned forward to learn more about how they to could get a leg up on life.

Taking responsibility for your life

Just a reminder Sign up to the right to get updates, a free ebook and lots of great tips. Being a busy mom can be a challenge at the best of times but when you are balancing a career, business or job with your family and still trying to have a little time for yourself it can really be a challenge Most people think that they are in charge of their lives but in reality they allow outside factors to control their lives like guilt, outside expectations and external pressure. In order to really take control of your life and your future you need to reconcile with the past and take responsibility for your future. You need to admit that everything you have experienced in the past and all of your reactions to those situations that occurred in the past have caused the future you are experiencing right now.

Child labor or a labor of love

One of the greatest ways to have more time as a working mother is to get some help. Who can you get to help, the kids of cource providing they are over the diaper stage 🙂 I have seen it over and over again that parents run around trying to prepare lunches, get the kids ready and then try to get themselves prepared to start the work day.

The kids whine and ask about dinner, when is it ready, whats for dinner, we are hungry etc. They will sit down for dinner without any forthought of the fact that there are no glasses or no butter.
