Episode 54: What Got You Here Won't Get You There


There’s a concept known as the paradox of success. Where we believe that the things that have contributed to our success in life so far will be a good predictor of our future success.  But in actual fact they can be the things that hold you back as you transition into a new phase in your life.  This concept can be the reason so many of us struggle when we enter motherhood.

In this episode I explore the concept of ‘What Got You Here, Won’t Get You There.’  That the beliefs and attitudes that have supported you to achieve success in your life prior to motherhood may not be the ones that enable you to thrive once you have children.

In this episode I share:

  • what the paradox of success is and why it’s relevant for us as mothers
  • how this concept can cause us to get stuck in motherhood
  • how to use this insight to thrive as a working mum
