My fertility journey has sunk like the Titanic. Never to be seen again and that's how I want it. It better not be resurrected either like some pirate looking for booty. Lol - double entendre unintended.
Regardless, even though I'm not personally trying to get pregnant, I still feel like I'm right alongside with you.
As an entrepeneur, I ride the same emotional roller coaster you do. Namely, digging up the resilience to overcome the constant failures. For you, it comes every month in the form of Aunt Flo. For me, it's when my ideas don't work and I go back to square one to figure out my next step. It's a constant dance. Or not knowing if what I'm doing is going to work. But I continue to put one foot in front of the other. I can only do that because my eye is on that brass ring of creating a business that I want. I might get distracted but I always come back to that brass ring.
Part of my journey is to be a student. I'm in constant learning mode. A portion of each day is devoted to education. It could be listening to podcasts, reading books, researching articles, scouring studies, attending conferences. I want to learn how to improve fertility for my clients, grow my business, and be a better person. It never ends.
The trick to enjoy learning and to benefit from it is to have an empty mind. To forget what I think I know and approach it as a beginner. To leave my ego so that I'm open to new ideas.
I love working with my clients cuz they have that same mindset. Sometimes I throw the weirdest info at them and they just roll with it. Just like me, they think outside the box. They're open to new ideas. And the ones who are successful act on what I advise them to do. No hemming or hawing. No excuses. They just DO.
As you walk your fertility journey (or really, just life in general), you should also be constantly learning. Not just about fertility but how about to be your best self. How to be a better partner, sister, daughter, friend, employee.
You can learn on your own as I usually do.
Or you can learn with me as your fertility coach. If you're interested in that, stay tuned for more info about my online fertility coaching program to be relaunched in November.
It's helpful to learn with others going through the same thing so if you have a friend struggling to get pregnant, have her sign up for my daily emails atzenfertility.com/top10.
