Motivation – The secret to how I produce change

February 24, 2016/Books
Using discontentment as a motivation for change

A few weeks ago we talked about being content and how discontentedness can rob us of being grateful for what we have and leave us living like a victim. In this video, I reveal my secret for how I continually use discontentment as motivation to grow as a wife, mother, and writer.

I hope you enjoyed the video – As promised, pictured below are some books that I absolutely loved when it came to helping me with my parenting style. Click on them to buy them on Amazon.* There are so many good ones out there that I haven’t mentioned, but this is a good foundation.

Also, I’d love to hear in the comments what you do to be a good wife and mother and {fill in the blank of what you do}; or if you’ve read any amazing parenting or relationship books others might enjoy.

As always, if this video was helpful to you, pass it on via the social media links below.

    I love your growth mindset, and how you pursue learning even for the little things in life. This was just the encouragement I needed today. Thanks!
