Pratima met her husband when she was 20, shortly before their arranged marriage in India.  Almost immediately after their wedding, they moved from India to Alabama.  

 

After 8 years of marriage, Pratima found herself preparing to take her own life.  She could no longer survive in her arranged marriage and she didn’t yet see a way out.  

 

Out of sheer will and determination to create a different and better life for her daughter, Pratima saved herself. She credits one quote with saving her life, “the darkest hour is before dawn.”  

 

Pratima got out of her marriage, created a career path for herself, never having worked before, and built a life inspired by words that she kept close to her heart and always visible to her eyes.  

 

Listen in to hear Pratima share:

  • What life was like inside her arranged marriage
  • The steps she took to start her own life from scratch
  • How she worked her way out of $92,000 of debt in 6 months
  • Where she found inspiration and power on her darkest days
  • What her job with Apple taught her about running her own business
  • The biggest obstacle she sees women facing

I’ve been thinking about the Attitude Adjustments that are necessary in life when one wants to move forward to accomplish great things.  Cause we all want to move forward and accomplish great things this year, right?!

 

Here are 3 Attitude Adjustments you need to make now (warning: controversial!)

 

  1. What you focus on expands.
  2. You are only as busy as you think you are. 
  3. You can’t have it all – right now – and that is ok.

 

Perspective is everything.  I challenge you to look for new perspectives in this fresh, new year.  Don’t let yourself stay in one place.  Move – just a little bit forward every day.  Work on your head space and your actions will reflect your new attitudes.  This is crucial.  And you deserve it.  Because you deserve to have the best year.

Have you noticed the Anti Resolution Revolution?  I’m a big fan.  Huge. 

 

Quite frankly, resolutions suck.  They are too big.  They are too vague.  They are not “bite sized” enough.  They are framed as punishments.  They are designed to make us fail.  Every year….

 

If you really want to improve your life you have to look at tiny habits.  You have to implement small changes that build confidence and improve motivation.  You need to be excited and positive about the potential and possibility that lie ahead of you. 

 

In this episode, I share:

  • Why resolutions suck
  • Why your brain literally cannot handle your resolution
  • Why habits are better than resolutions and how they are totally different in nature
  • What 3 steps you must take to make a new habit successful
  • Tips to start a new habit, whether you want to eat better, lose weight, be less stressed, manage time better, or just generally love your life more
