Eat the Sh*t Sandwich: Inspired by BIG MAGIC

Big Magic - Shit Sandwich
I’ve experienced imposter syndrome and so has pretty much every Mompreneur going after what she wants.

Would you eat the shitty part of a sandwich?

Sh*t Sandwich  

Is what I read about this morning in  #bigmagic

Do you know what a sh*t sandwich is?  
Would you eat it?
Do you eat it?

It’s about your life and all that YOU SAY, or THINK you want….

With everything in life, there’s always the sh*t we don’t want to do…. but if you want something bad enough…

– your career
– the promotion
– the house
– the partner
– the health
– the fitness

You’ll have to WANT and eat all parts of the sandwich, the good and the bad…

Here’s the Thing

If it’s truly your passion, whatever it is you say you want… none of it will seem so shitty.

So, for actors, you got to take the small gigs to get to the big ones

Motherhood, we do it all right?

Starting your own biz??? You’re excited to take it all on, work morning, lunch, late night and sometimes all night in the beginning.

This morning I got up at 4:45am to get my fitness in because I’m out all day… I don’t love getting up early, I don’t have to, but I want and choose to for results and for the big picture…

I’ll eat the entire shi*ty sandwich…

I’ll eat yours if you don’t want it, because I’m hungry  😜

If you find yourself hating the little annoying steps/actions/to-dos that help you to the big things… it may not be your “IT”
