Achieve More with Focus and Determination

I’ve experienced imposter syndrome and so has pretty much every Mompreneur going after what she wants.

If you knew how to gain more time back, what would you do with it?

Imagine you’re standing at the starting line, heart racing, ready to take on a challenge that feels both exhilarating and daunting. You’ve set a bold goal—to run 2 miles in under 30 minutes. But today, you’re not just aiming to meet it; you’re determined to crush it.

This was my story just this past week.

Armed with determination, I left my phone, kids, and dog behind. There was no social media to distract me, no music to pace me, and no dog needing a break. It was just me, the road, and my focus. And guess what? I not only met my goal, but I also beat it by an incredible 6 minutes!

I know, I know, dramatic, and—2 miles in 24 minutes might be a walk in the park for some, but for me, it was a race against my recent limits. And let’s be honest, I’m only competing with myself here! (wink)

Gaining those 6 minutes made me think: What if I could gain 6 minutes back every hour, every day? The time saved would add up quickly, giving me more moments to devote to my dreams, business, family, and, frankly, more dancing!

Imagine the possibilities!

Here’s how to achieve with focus and determination.

Accurate Communication: I told my kids exactly what I was doing and why. I invited them outside to cheer me on but not to ask for anything unless it was a 911 situation. Their understanding set the stage for uninterrupted focus.

Audacious Boundaries: I created a space to concentrate solely on my goal by eliminating all distractions. Setting strong boundaries is essential for achieving any ambition.

Absolute Commitment with Laser Focus: Without distractions, I found myself more efficient and capable. This experience reinforced how focus can help us achieve our goals faster and more effectively.

As mompreneurs, your days are filled with endless tasks and responsibilities. But if you can learn to focus and set boundaries, you can achieve so much more in less time. 

Here are a few tips to help you incorporate focus into your daily routine:

  • Communicate Clearly or, as I say, Accurate Communication: Let your family know your goals and why they matter to you. Their understanding and support are invaluable; you lead by example, showing them how to communicate.
  • Eliminate Distractions: Identify and remove distractions during your most productive hours. Whether turning off notifications or finding a quiet space, create an environment conducive to focus. Set yourself up for success. Evaluate and then rinse and repeat.
  • Set Boundaries: Be firm with your time and energy. It’s okay to say no to things that don’t align with your priorities. Expect to upset and frustrate others, but with accurate communication, they will learn to navigate the boundaries.

Challenge yourself to find where to improve your focus and gain more time for your mompreneur dreams. 

Remember, achieving your goals is not just about hard work; it’s about working smart and staying focused so that you can take back more time.

You have the power to accomplish incredible things. 

Believe in yourself, set those audacious goals, and go after them with unwavering focus.
