More About This
I think women have been told a lie that tears us apart inside. It is one that keeps us from taking care of ourselves and making a huge difference in the world. It is one that breaks apart families and dreams. We have been told that we have to choose. We need to choose between taking care of ourselves and being a good mother. We have been told that we have to choose between having an awesome family and making a difference in this world. I don’t think this is true.
I think there is a way we can do everything we want in this life by doing things in the right order, at the right time, with the right intent. This is what women with fire do. We know we need to light ourselves before lighting others. We hear all the time that we have to take care of ourselves before we can take care of others, but while this is easily and frequently said, it is often the exception rather than the rule. Why is it so hard to do this in real life? It’s hard to do because women have a natural tendency to put everyone’s needs ahead of our own. It’s hard to do because we get lost in the chaos life and overwhelmed by our “to do” list. It’s hard to do because it is likely that no one ever showed us how.
The first thing we need to understand is that we do not have time management problems, we have a priority problem! Putting our priorities in the right order is the first step to balancing everything without losing our minds.
I used to feel like I couldn’t be successful in my work and be present with my family, but then I learned a lesson that helped me understand that I can be successful at both. I learned that I could hit targets in work and with my family in small bursts of time and that if I put did things in priority, I could accomplish more than I ever thought possible.
In this episode, I share the principles needed to have real balance. It’s not perfect…it’s not pretty…but it is perfectly awesome!
Who is Connie Benjamin?
Connie Benjamin is an international speaker and author of the upcoming book Women With Fire…6 Secrets to Purpose, Profit, and Passion. She is also the host of My Fire Within Radio. After sharing her message from the stage with thousands of people, she realized women entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs who want to make a difference in the world through their work without losing their family, or their sanity needed a book to guide them in how to do it.
Connie discovered it was possible to have it all, at the right time, and in the right order, after she learned about Higher Laws principles. Now, she dedicates her time to sharing her knowledge with female self-starters to help them improve their lives. These principles helped Connie restore her marriage from feeling disconnected to being better than the day she and her husband Andy were married! These principles also helped her replace her day job income, as she found renewed love in being a stay-at-home mom with her three daughters, and recovered her health.
Connie knows how essential it is to give back, so she is donating all the profits from the first edition of her book Women With Fire to charity to help families in developing countries access clean water.
