RAISING KIDS MINDFULLY
Anna shares her beliefs around raising kids and says that she doesn’t think many people really go deep into the conversations of ‘What is motherhood?’ And ‘What is parenthood?’ In addition, she suggests we should be having these conversations, especially if you want to raise them consciously and mindfully. We think about growing businesses and we have strategies and mentors in place but we get into motherhood and it’s a big transition without instructions.
BEING CONNECTED TO INTUITION
“It’s about being connected to intuition, getting the downloads and also being quiet enough to hear the answers. That’s how I move through motherhood and business.”
All of us are intuitive beings, but with all the external noise, we don’t necessarily tune into it, listen to it or pay attention to it. Anna shares that the more that we can listen to those little nudges and the more we can take that intentional inspired action, the more our life is going to flow. She is constantly connected and guided to her intuition, and taps into this energy in both motherhood and business.
WHY AFFIRMATIONS ARE IMPORTANT
“You can start affirmations at any age. It’s a powerful, lifelong practice.”
Affirmations are so important. Mindfulness is so important. What you speak in your mind is what you will speak into existence. Anna talks about how affirmations have transformed her self-talk and ability to shift negative thoughts quickly. Having a physical tool, like an affirmation set, allows you to bring focused intention into the words that you’re speaking out loud and into the thoughts that you’re programming into your subconscious.
CONSCIOUSLY MAKING CHOICES
“Our subconscious mind is always working. When we are thinking our thoughts, when we are speaking our words, those are creating our reality.”
Anna says that if we can consciously choose our words and thoughts, we can consciously choose our reality. Rather than having things happen on autopilot, we can catch ourselves in a negative thought and turn it into a neutral thought, and then, a positive one. This can have a transformative effect on our entire life. Wherever you are, just get started and make it a habit so that you can consciously co-create your life rather than doing it by default.
ADVICE FOR FEMALE FOUNDERS
The best way to get ahead is to learn from someone who has done what you want to do. As Anna shares, the only way to fast track your success is by hiring someone, working with someone, or teaming up with someone who is where you want to go. This can be a coach, mentor or partner.
