FCPGM 021: Having Enough - do we ever?
Show Notes

There’s not enough hours in the day. There’s isn’t enough food on my plate. There’s not enough instagram followers for me. It’s natural for us to complain and moan about not having enough. How much of that moan is legitimate and how much is based on us trying to keep up with the Jones’s? How can we learn to be satisfied with what we’ve got? 

In this episode, we never having enough… or do we? What’s this persistent perception of scarcity we seem to suffer from and how can we overcome it?

Gym Mommas Quote of the Week:
“What we know matters. What we have matters. But what we are, matters more” - Brenee Brown

Top Tips:
1. Ask yourself: "Do I really need it?"
2. Manage your expectations. Is what you "need" actually possible to achieve?
3. Know what "enough" looks like. Have a clear goal and visual image of what it will look like to have achieved it.
4. Gratitude. If you're not grateful for what you already have, you'll never have enough.
