Throw out your “Head Trash”!

Leslie Sturgeon, WIW Founder

We all do it.  We come up with a million reasons why we shouldn’t do something.  We need to stop recycling our head trash and throw it out!

Some head trash that creeps into our heads:

  • “I shouldn’t take time off from work for education.”
  • “I couldn’t possibly close my business/office for a day to work on myself and my business.”
  • “I couldn’t possibly do this for me, what about my kid’s commitments?”
  • “No one wants to meet me, so why bother going. I’m nothing special.”
  • “I won’t know anyone there and it will be awkward.”
  • “I am already well versed in personal development so this will be ‘old hat’ to me.”
  • “Manchester is too far to drive for me.”
  • “I can’t afford it or shouldn’t spend the money on myself or my business.”
  • “This will just be another boring conference.”

All of this head trash is piling up and I am calling on you to throw it all out! Isn’t it time to stop sabotaging your own success?

Head Trash is such a huge issue for all of us, and in this instance I am talking about the conversations you may have been having with yourself about attending the NH Conference for Women on November 3rd. Kudos to those of you who have answered “Yes!” and have already registered or are committed to registering.

It’s one day out of your life and even if you have one, practical, take-away, that helps you personally or professionally,  or meet someone who rocks your world it is worth the price of admission!

Perhaps your boss or company could cover your registration fee as part of “Professional Development” Or, if you are your own boss, pay your own tax-deductible registration fee for your own personal AND professional development.

Be open to meeting new people in a safe, welcoming environment!

Everyone can stand to learn something new and be open to hearing new ideas from a myriad of new contacts. The decision you make to attend could be a game changer for you and/or your business.

We had a woman from Center Sandwich named Bunny  attending for many years – she was 101 years old. Keep learning no matter your age!

This is a day of celebration, education, and having fun. We DANCE! Yes, we shake our groove thing! Even Bunny did!

This conference is about all areas of your life, not just career and business.

Too far?  Carpool. We can hook you up!

People need to meet YOU and hear YOUR story. It is very possible something you say could make a profound difference in someone’s life.

Elizabeth Smart will be with us on her 30th birthday. She not only survived her abduction ordeal when she was 14, but she has created a beautiful life and is now 30. Her past did not define her future. Use her as an example that there are no obstacles too great in our way.

Even if you can’t come to the Conference, please be mindful of the head trash  in your life and dispose of it regularly. It is something I work on as well. As someone once said to me – and it has become my mantra when I am debating something in my head – “What is the worst that can happen?”

Be like Bunny. Hope to see you on November 3rd.

Much love, Leslie
