15 Signs You Have The Cleverest Mom Ever

Do you have an amazing mom? A great mom will play many roles in your life, from your teacher to your nurse to your best friend.

All of these roles help her to look after you and shape you into the best person you can possibly be – check out 15 signs that you have the cleverest mom ever.

1. She knows where everything is supposed to go

From kitchen utensils to scarves, everything has a designated place and your mom knows it. This is very handy for you whenever you don’t know where something is, as you just have to ask your mom – you can already guarantee she knows where it is.

2. She is the best chef you know

She isn’t a professional chef, but you are pretty sure she could be. Your favorite meal is cooked by her, and you get excited every time you know she is cooking a meal for you.

3. She supports your dreams

You know that whatever your dreams and passions are, your mom will be backing them with love and support. She may not always agree with your passions, but she doesn’t let that stop her from supporting your happiness; she understands you are different people with different perspectives.

4. She has played the role of your doctor and your nurse

Your mom is one of the only people who doesn’t avoid you when you’re sick, and you are eternally thankful for that. Ever since you were a child, she cleaned up your sick and gave you medicine to make you feel better, playing both the doctor and the nurse at the same time.

5. She always knows when you just need someone to listen

Sometimes after a long day, all you want to do is have a rant – and the person you normally choose to rant at is your mom, because you know she is the best listener in your life. She will listen patiently and without judgement, which is exactly what you need after a hard day.

6. She knows how to push you to succeed

Your mom likes to push you to be bold in your career and personal life, but she doesn’t put you under or pressure or make you feel stressed out; as long as you’re happy, she is happy too.

7. She puts family first

You mom has lots of other awesome things going on in her life, from friends to her career, but if you need her, she will always make the time for you. She would never forget plans or your birthday, and you are grateful that you can rely on her.

8. She is awesome at multitasking

You have seen your mom cooking dinner, finishing off work and putting washing on – all while on the phone. The most amazing part of this is that this isn’t even a stressful evening for her.

9. She gives you the best advice

Whether it is a bad break-up or a career decision, you always go to your mom for advice. You know that she will be honest and helpful, and she will help you to make the best decision you can.

10. She taught you about money

Your mom taught you to save money every month and to set up direct debits for your bills, and you can never thank her enough. Her smartness saved you years of stress – although you still feel a little clueless about money.

11. She knows how to watch over you without annoying you

Because of your mom you remember to eat vegetables every day and exercise whenever you can, but her reminders to look after yourself are never annoying. You know she only wants the best for you, and you want to make her as proud as possible.

12. She accepts that you will make mistakes

Your mom knows you have made mistakes and you will probably make many more. She understands that you need to make your own mistakes to learn from them. While she doesn’t try to live for you, she will always be there to pick you up when you’re down.

13. She knows how to cheer you up

From cocktails to a funny movie, she always knows how to cheer you up and put a smile on your face whenever you’re feeling down.

14. She follows her own passions while being there for you

She is always there for you when you need her, but you know she has many other passions in her life. She actively pursues her hobbies and friendships, and you are pretty sure she is more popular than you.

15. She knows how to be both your friend and your mom

While she may act like your best friend sometimes, before that she is always your mom. She will put you in your place when you need it, and you’re thankful to have someone in your life who will always keep you grounded.

Success In Reaching Goals Is Determined By Mindset

Success In Reaching Goals Is Determined By Mindset

What do you think it takes to achieve your goals? Hard work? Lots of actions? While these are paramount to becoming successful in reaching our goals, neither of these are possible without a positive mindset.

As humans, we naturally tend to lean towards a negative outlook when it comes to our hopes and dreams. We are prone to believing that we have limitations either from within ourselves or from external forces keeping us from truly getting to where we want to be in life. Our tendency to think that we’ll “believe it when we see it” suggests that our mindsets are focused on our goals not really being attainable until they’ve been achieved. The problem with this is that this common mindset fuels our limiting beliefs and shows a lack of faith in ourselves.

The Success Mindset

Success in achieving our goals comes down to a ‘success mindset’. Successful mindsets are those focused on victory, based on positive mental attitudes, empowering inclinations and good habits. Acquiring a success mindset is the sure-fire way to dramatically increase your chance to achieve your goals.

The idea that achieving our goals comes down to our habits and actions is actually a typical type of mindset that misses a crucial point; that our mindset is, in fact, the determiner of our energy and what actions we take. A negative mindset will tend to create negative actions and similarly if we have a mindset that will only set into action once we see ‘proof’ that our goals are achievable, then the road will be much longer and arduous. This is why, instead of thinking “I’ll believe it when I see it”, a success mindset will think “I’ll see it when I believe it.”

The Placebo Effect and What It Shows Us About The Power of Mindset

The placebo effect is a perfect example of how mindset really can be powerful. In scientific trials, a group of participants were told they received medication that will heal an ailment but were actually given a sugar pill that does nothing (the placebo). Yet after the trial the participants believed it’s had a positive effect – sometimes even cured their ailment even though nothing has changed. This is the power of mindset.

How do we apply this to our goals? Well, when we set goals and dreams how often do we really believe they’ll come to fruition? Have absolute faith that they can be achieved? Have a complete unwavering expectation? Most of us don’t because we hold on to negative mindsets and limiting beliefs about ourselves that stop us from fully believing we are capable or that it’s at all possible. We tend to listen to the opinions of others despite them misaligning with our own or bow to societal pressures that make us believe we should think and act a certain way. There are many reasons why we possess these types of mindsets but a success mindset can be achieved.

How To Create a Success Mindset

People with success mindsets have a particular way of perceiving things. They have positive outlooks and are able to put faith fully in their ability to succeed. With that in mind, here are a few ways that can turn a negative mindset into a successful one.

1. A Success Mindset Comes From a Growth Mindset

How does a mindset even manifest itself? It comes from the way you talk to yourself in the privacy of your own head. Realising this will go a long way towards noticing how you speak to yourself and others around you. If it’s mainly negative language you use when you talk about your goals and aspirations then this is an example of a fixed mindset.

A negative mindset brings with it a huge number of limiting beliefs. It creates a fixed mindset – one that can’t see beyond it’s own limitations. A growth mindset sees these limitations and looks beyond them – it finds ways to overcome obstacles and believes that this will result in success. When you think of your goal, a fixed mindset may think “what if I fail?” A growth mindset would look at the same goal and think “failures happen but that doesn’t mean I won’t be successful.”

There’s a lot of power in changing your perspective.

2. Look For The Successes

It’s really important to get your mind focused on positive aspects of your goal. Finding inspiration through others can be really uplifting and keep you on track with developing your success mindset; reinforcing your belief that your dreams can be achieved. Find people that you can talk with about how they achieved their goals and seek out and surround yourself with positive people. This is crucial if you’re learning to develop a positive mindset.

3. Eliminate Negativity

You can come up against a lot of negativity sometimes either through other people or within yourself. Understanding that other people’s negative opinions are created through their own fears and limiting beliefs will go a long way in sustaining your success mindset. But for a lot of us, negative chatter can come from within and these usually manifest as negative words such as can’t, won’t, shouldn’t. Sometimes, when we think of how we’re going to achieve our goals, statements in our minds come out as negative absolutes: ‘It never works out for me’ or ‘I always fail.’

When you notice these coming up you need to turn them around with ‘It always works out for me!’ and ‘I never fail!’ The trick is to believe it no matter what’s happened in the past. Remember that every new day is a clean slate and for you to adjust your mindset.

4. Create a Vision

Envisioning your end goal and seeing it in your mind is an important trait of a success mindset. Allowing ourselves to imagine our success creates a powerful excitement that shouldn’t be underestimated. When our brain becomes excited at the thought of achieving our goals, we become more committed, work harder towards achieving it and more likely to do whatever it takes to make it happen.

If this involves creating a vision board that you can look at to remind yourself every day then go for it. Small techniques like this go a long way in sustaining your success mindset and shouldn’t be dismissed.

An Inspirational Story…

For centuries experts said that running a mile in under 4 minutes was humanly impossible. On the 6th May 1954, Rodger Bannister did just that. As part of his training, Bannister relentlessly visualised the achievement, believing he could accomplish what everyone said wasn’t possible…and he did it.

What’s more amazing is that, as soon as Bannister achieved the 4-minute mile, more and more people also achieved it. How was this possible after so many years of no one achieving it? Because in people’s minds it was suddenly possible – once people knew that it was achievable it created a mindset of success and now, after over fifty years since Bannister did the ‘impossible’, his record has been lowered by 17 seconds – the power of the success mindset!
