Positive thinking can help work at home mums achieve their challenge to work from home while being a stay-at-home mum.

Here are some actions and positive adjustments you can make to have positive thinking and help you achieve your goals.

Though some of the following pointers could sound superficial, try them for yourself, on a daily basis, and see how they’ll change the way you are feeling and act as well as the outcomes you achieve.

1. Take Passionate Action Towards Your Dream. As a mum and work at home business owner or professional, put your heart into all that you do, and remember what you’re doing it for. Even the smallest actions have an effect on your future results, and keeping your greater dream or goal in mind can help you feel great regarding each step you are taking towards it, however small it may be.

2. Commit and Believe. Determination must be one of the most formidable mindsets to create success, for work at home mums or anyone! When facing every frustration, obstacle, or challenge, say: ‘I WILL SUCCEED’, ‘I WILL DO IT’, ‘I HAVE THE POWER TO ACHIEVE MY DREAM’. If you have already set that you will be successful, no matter what, and once you unconditionally believe that each one of your experiences, your behaviours and the world will give back to you to make your dream, you’re half way there already!

3. Enjoy Life and Take in Each Moment. Everything happens for a reason. So what is the reason going to be? Ask yourself often: ‘What is happening right now that I can learn from?’, ‘What can I see currently which will inspire me?’, ‘What’s this feeling and what does it reveal about myself?’. Events may happen which we label as counter-productive, irrelevant, hurtful or negative. But, through each of those events, you’ll be able to learn something about yourself, others, and the world, and learning is always a positive thing.

4. Feel and Express Gratitude. You are rich. You are lucky. You have many blessings. What are you grateful for? Work at home mums have the amazing opportunity to be home for their kids and their loved ones, while also enjoying work as professionals or entrepreneurs. Treasure everything you have, and ask yourself everyday – what do I have that I am grateful for? From the clothes you wear to the roof over your head, and from your beautiful children to the food you consume, express gratitude for what you have got, and more things will happen for you to be grateful for!

5. Take Responsibility. You are the architect of your destiny. You may not control all things and people around you, however you have control of YOU. You will not decide on every event, however you decide on YOUR RESPONSE to those events. You can CHOOSE to feel resilient, happy, motivated, in control, positive. You can make the choice to be a work at home mum, and be successful in both roles.

6. Find Inspiration. Seek out positive inspiration from mentors, books, music or movies. Become a student of personal development. Refine your skills, ability and natural inclination to be a positive, optimistic, happy, strong, appreciative, resolute, passionate and inspired work at home mum!

7. Smile. Smile and the world smiles with you! Raise your body, walk with your head up, take a deep breath, present yourself well (even to go to the supermarket!), and smile to strangers. Work at home mums are often so busy fulfilling all their tasks, and often forget to refill on positive energy. Smiling while lifting up your body is the fastest most effective approach to get positive energy. When you’re feeling overwhelmed, overworked or annoyed, smile and you will feel a shift in your energy and personal power. The obstacles won’t suddenly disappear, but it sure may help you align yourself for a better response.

8. Be Healthy. Eat well, exercise, hydrate, meditate, read, relax, rest, walk, and play. A healthy body is essential to holding a positive mind. For work at home mums, putting themselves first is typically a challenge, but having a powerful body, mind and soul is just as vital to achieve success in all areas of their lives.
