Hey there lady boss …
It has been said that it takes 21 days of consistent action to change a behaviour or create a new habit.
Often times we want something different but old tapes continue to play in our head that keeps us from reaching our goals and dreams as successful work at home mums.
This can range from trying to drop 10 lbs to getting the courage to start your work at home business.
The truth is … going from mummy to entrepreneur can be a little scary. actually … it can be a LOT scary!!
However one of the ways to reduce fear and increase success is to lean on the wisdom and experience of others who have been successful in life.
Some may be famous and others not.
Nevertheless, their wisdom if you choose to listen, can help you create a paradigm shift in thinking which is the foundation to massive success in any work at home business.
I have always loved to listen to the champions that have gone before and I just love reading inspirations quotes to get me fired up and put my mindset in the right place to crush it on my business.
So I wanted to share some with you here …
Here are 21 inspirational quotes just for you mumpreneurs that I have thought about often and used to inspire me to go from “just being mum” to crushing it online as a super successful mumpreneur … and it can do the same for you.
Once in a while, it really hits people that they don’t have to experience the world in the way they have been told to. —Alan Keightley
Were you told to go to school and get a good job?
I was. While I know my mum meant well and thought she was preparing me to be able to have access to the pearly gates of success she could not know how things would change.
However, I knew that I wanted more? How about you? Remember, you don’t have to settle for 60 hour work weeks, 30-minute commutes, your kids in daycare or relocating for the promise of success advancement. You don’t have to be part of the grind, the rat race.
You will never change your life until you change something you do daily. — Mike Murdock
Are you afraid to get started? It may seem overwhelming but if you focus on simple daily actions, the big goals take care of themselves.
No one lives long enough to learn everything they need to learn starting from scratch. To be successful, we absolutely, positively have to find people who have already paid the price to learn the things that we need to learn to achieve our goals —. Brian Tracy
Get help right out the gate. Find a mentor, coach, mastermind or become a part a community that will help to support you in your success.
You want to become a life long learner. Attend seminars and boot camps in your specialized area knowledge. When you learn from people who have been successful and you model their activities you will get their results.
By stretching yourself beyond your perceived level of confidence you accelerate your development of competence. — Michael J. Gelb
The only way to gain confidence in a certain area is to take action. It is in the action you will start to have small victories which will increase your level of success as a work at home mom.
If you don’t program yourself, life will program you! —Les Brown
Don’t let other people make the decision for your life. Have no retirement plan? You don’t want the government to be your strategy. Remember, it’s your life and it’s now or never.
There are two primary choices in life: to accept conditions as they exist, or accept the responsibility for changing them. —Denis Waitley
No matter what your current conditions are, you have the opportunity to change them. However, this can only happen if you take total responsibility for the direction of your life as a work at home mum. If you don’t like where you are, forgive yourself and focus on solutions. Don’t focus on problems or why you think something can’t happen. Start to ask powerful questions the answers will start to appear.
A different world cannot be built by indifferent people. —Peter Marshall
You can’t have what you want in life by being indifferent. Successful mumpreneurs are passionate and sometimes radical in pursuit of their dreams. Don’t allow yourself to be in environments that discourage you.
What is it that you like doing? If you don’t like it, get out of it, because you’ll be lousy at it. You don’t have to stay with a job for the rest of your life, because if you don’t like it you’ll never be successful in it. —Lee Iacocca
Why would you ever spend most of your waking hours doing something that you don’t like? The key to success is finding something you love to and set the standard for excellence.
Simply making consistent investments in our self-education and knowledge banks pays major dividends throughout our lives. — Jim Rohn
The self-education I have pursued in my 30’s has been my greatest return on investment. There is something to be said when you develop skills that you know will support you in any economy. Specialised knowledge applied with all-out massive results will yield hefty financial and emotional rewards.
If you have not discovered your life’s purpose don’t be hard on yourself. Start to ask yourself questions and enter into a discovery process.
Allow yourself to dream without concerns about how you will get it done. Every time you think you have found the answer dig a little deeper with more questions.
Rarely are your true goals, purpose and desires on the surface of your soul. Often times they have been put away for safekeeping to protect yourself from disappointment.
Keep discovering new things until your purpose is crystal clear.

What material success does is provide you with the ability to concentrate on other things that really matter. And that is being able to make a difference, not only in your own life, but in other people’s lives. —Oprah Winfrey
When you get the money out of the way your world expands even greater.
Oprah exemplifies this principle. She now looks for ways to help others in everything she does.
Whether it is giving more support to your family or contributing to a worthy cause, having freedom as a work from home mumpreneurs will allow you to make your mark in the world.
The world cares very little about what a man or woman knows; it is what the man or woman is able to do. — Booker T. Washington
So what can you create and add value to the world?
I love this quote because it demonstrates very clearly that what matters, are results at the end of the day. Don’t get caught up in theories. Make sure you are constantly taking action that moves you towards a specific goal.
There are risks and costs to action. But they are far less than the long-range risks of comfortable inaction. — John F. Kennedy
Are you so afraid to fail that you just can’t get out of the box?
Don’t be. Many people have “failed” their way to million dollar empires. It is better to do something and be wrong than to do nothing at all.
When you choose to do nothing someone else usually makes a decision that impacts you and you ending up doing something you don’t want to do.
I don’t believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for circumstances they want. –George Bernard Shaw
There is no such thing as luck. You create the luck by working and preparing for the opportunity. When you start to put yourself out there the universe gives back. Make sure you are clear of your intentions and then go and make it happen.
It’s not the hours you put in your work that counts, it’s the work you put in your hours. — Sam Ewing
You have the same 24 hours in the day as Bills Gate and Oprah. Don’t sabotage yourself by saying, “Well they can do it because they’re rich.” Unless you inherit wealth there is a price that everyone has to pay. You don’t have to work all day … However, you must consistently put time in if you want success.
You must do the thing you think you cannot do. — Eleanor Roosevelt.
One of the greatest gifts you can give yourself is to do something you think you can not do. It doesn’t have to be something huge. A simple action of courage goes a long in adding to your confidence in every area of your life.
You will never leave where you are until you decide where you’d rather be. — Dexter Yager
Until you know your purpose you will be at risk for staying in a situation and life that slowly eats away at you. Why? You simply don’t have a strong enough goal to change it. When the goal is strong enough you will search to find the answers.
