Do you ever feel torn between the choice of trying to be a good partner and mother, or the pursuit of your dreams? For over a decade I felt this way. I slowly watched my hopes and dreams to make a difference in the world disappear as I struggled with the guilt of desiring to be more than just 'mum'. It took me a long journey to realise it, but I eventually discovered that it doesn't have to be an either/or choice at all- you really can have it all!
Hi, I'm Geri. I've always been someone who has had big dreams and seen the world as an open-book of opportunity. But once I became a mother, I began to feel torn between my desire to achieve and my heart-felt need to be there for my family. I adore and treasure every precious moment with my children as they truly are my world, but like so many other women, I've also felt frustrated and trapped as I've supported everyone else to succeed in life whilst watching my own hopes, dreams and confidence slowly drift away.
Instead of following my heart and passion, I took low-paying jobs to fit in around my family that left me feeling empty, bored and unfulfilled. I always felt that I was sacrificing my dreams and settling for so much less than I knew I was capable of.
However, there comes a point where you have to ask yourself, how many more years am I willing to put my own life and dreams on hold for? As I became older, I become increasingly aware of how precious life is and how it's a disservice to the world if we don't share the gifts we've been given.
I realised that success started within me. I needed to take control and gain some clarity and focus in my life. So I began a journey of self-discovery, working on all areas of my life with a coach. I re-connected with who I truly am and realised that I had the power to change my life and create it the way I wanted it.to be.
I'm now so blessed to be able to follow my true calling as a coach and help other purpose-driven, entrepreneurial women who have so much to achieve and give to the world, but feel stuck or just don't know where to start. And the best part? I choose when I work and I'm still able to be there and watch my beautiful family grow up.
Success means different things for everyone. Whether you want to start your own business whilst still being there for the kids growing up, travel the world or help to build schools for children in Africa; success is about living a life on your terms that's true to you. With support, it's incredible how much you can achieve and how quickly life can change once you decide to make it happen.
My biggest fear is that you settle for less than you desire in life and never go after your dreams. I worry that you may stay stuck because you don't know where to start, don't feel confident enough or it simply feels too overwhelming or hard. Don't do what I did and waste over a decade putting your life on hold...
