Episode 76: Grit Or Quit - Knowing The Difference To Thrive As A Working Mother


Over my two year recovery from burnout, I learnt some powerful and, sometimes, painful lessons.

One of those lessons was this – knowing the difference between grit and quit.

And I want to share this with you as it’s something I see time and time again with other women.

My guess is that if you’re here in my community you’re someone who cares.

You care deeply about being a good mum. You care about showing up in your professional world with impact.

You likely have a lot on your plate and want to do it all well.

Can you relate?

To do it all you’re probably using a lot of grit to make it happen.

This approach has probably supported you to achieve your goals.

But I often find with my clients that sometimes we don’t know when to grit and when to quit. Meaning we can overuse our strength of mind and character to our own detriment.

So despite motivational quotes such as “winners never quit and quitters never win” I’ve learned that to truly win in life as a working mum building our ability to quit is just as important as building our ability to grit.

In my latest podcast episode, I’m exploring the concept of knowing when to grit and when to quit to support you to succeed and thrive as a working mum.

I share three powerful questions you can ask yourself to decide if gritting or quitting is the best thing for you.

I really hope these three questions help you to navigate when to grit and when to quit in your life. So you can use them strategically, smartly and courageously to thrive.

I’d love to hear any insights you’ve had from this episode – so drop me a note on social media or email me – I genuinely would love to hear.
