What does it mean to be a "Super Mommy" and how do we know if we are one? It may be hard to believe but a Super Mommy is not a fantasy mom who lives a perfect life. It's about a decision to excel in motherhood and life in spite of our imperfections. Every mom has the potential to live life as a Super Mommy without perfection or comparison!
I'm sharing what it means to be a Super Mommy and the FIVE key attributes of a Super Mommy so you can transform your mom life of one of excellence, energy and ease.
Here's a snapshot of what I cover in today's episode:
What does it mean to be a Super Mommy?
A Super Mommy is defined by Merriam Webster as an exemplary mother; also : a woman who performs the traditional duties of housekeeping and child-rearing while also having a full-time job or being active in her community.
Being a Super Mommy has absolutely nothing to do with perfection and she is very much so a real mom. She is exceptional, successful, productive, highly capable, highly energetic, and ambitious. A Super Mommy doesn't sound so fictitious after all? We all know a woman who fits this description.
Attribute #1: Ambitious- having or showing a strong desire and determination to succeed. It is so important to be ambitious you will commit to doing what it takes, hard or easy to accomplish your purpose. Find your purpose, set your goals and define what success looks like for you.
Attribute #2: Focused- As moms we are easily distracted because there are always so many moving parts to our lives. Being focused requires clarity and to put your attention in the direction you desire to go. It also means minimizing distractions that want to pull us off track and keep us from making progress. NO MULTITASKING! Focus on one goal at a time even if it is in small increments of time. You can have multiple goals and work at them everyday but focus on one goal at a time.
Attribute #3: Strong- having the power to move heavy weights or perform other physically demanding tasks. She is able to withstand great force or pressure. Being a mom requires strength; being a Super Mommy requires super strength. Parenting alone is demanding, not to mention our marriage, business and every other aspects of our lives. We need strength to not only perform but to withstand. We have to tap into our inner strength that empowers us to push through and overcome.
Attribute #4: Persistent & Consistent- These two attributes are coupled together because they work together to ensure we accomplish our goals and achieve success. "If you are persistent you will get it. If you are consistent you will keep it." A Super Mommy shows up everyday and aims to give it her best in all areas of her life. Is everyday perfect, absolutely not! That doesn't stop her from going after what she desires of her mom life. Being persistent is committing to live a life that's not going to look like everyone else because you're willing to raise your standards and require more of yourself. The life of a Super Mommy is a life of excellence. Persistence is continuing firmly or obstinately in a course of action in spite of difficulty or opposition. Consistence is acting or doing something in the same way over time, especially so as to be fair or accurate. It is about being unchanging in nature, standard, or effect over time.
Attribute #5: Resilient- able to withstand or recover quickly from difficult conditions. A Super Mommy must be able to recover quickly from set backs, failures, unmet expectations and not break under the pressure of motherhood and life. We have a very ambitious purpose but we are equipped and highly capable. We will be stretched and pressed and moments when we feel like we're stretched too thin. Resilience helps us to recover quickly, bend and stretch in challenging seasons but we will not break under the pressure. We won't settle or quit.
Those are the attributes of a Super Mommy and you may think that you could never live up to the idea of her. But there is an inner Super Mommy waiting to be unleashed inside of you. It is needed in the world! I hope that this episode helped you to see that a Super Mommy is a real life mom and it includes you!
