Decide To Rise To Your Dreams

“Sometimes it takes a couple of tries. Even if you fail the first time, it doesn’t mean you’re going in the wrong direction. You just might need to try a couple of things until you finally figure out the thing you know you’re supposed to be doing. Small failures aren’t a big deal, they're just pointing you into the right direction.” - Mandy Arioto

Motherhood can often feel like you’re on an island without a lifeline to grab hold of. Moms can feel isolated in their role as mother and begin to wonder if this is all that life will ever be. Dreaming something bigger for herself seems impossible because of all the plates she already has spinning, hoping that one doesn’t fall to the ground and shatter. But there’s good news, my friends. Believe it or not, in this crazy world we find ourselves living in today, there is a community out there just for you that says you are worth it and you can do it!


Today’s episode is all about Deciding to Rise and Follow Your Dreams. I have the immense privilege of speaking with Mandy Arioto, the President and CEO of MOPS International which influences millions of moms through thousands of groups internationally. Mandy is widely known for her unique take on parenting, relationships, spiritual, and cultural issues. She speaks into the lives of millions of women and today, my friend, she is speaking into your life. So grab your coffee, snuggle up and get ready for the encouragement you’ve been needing.



Quotes I loved:


“[MOPS] is just a safe place to bear all the things that are heavy on our heart but also have people cheer us on.”


“Sometimes, even though we aren’t where we want to be, we can do something remarkable with what we have.”


“When we take seriously and have the courage to do the small things, that’s where the big things come out of.”


“Our motherhood is a catalyst and not a constraint.”


“The dreams we have bubble up and come from a holy place.”


“Sometimes it takes a couple of tries. Even if you fail the first time, it doesn’t mean you’re going in the wrong direction. You just might need to try a couple of things until you finally figure out the thing you know you’re supposed to be doing. Small failures aren’t a big deal, they're just pointing you into the right direction.”


“When you dive in and do business, you’re going to have some big failures...but you’re also going to have some big successes.”


“The things the kids remember and the memories they cherish are the imperfect moments.”


In this conversation, we covered:

  • The mission and heart behind MOPS

  • Doing the work we need to do to lay the foundation for years to come

  • Seizing the opportunity we have right now to create relationships and build networks

  • Pursuing our dreams, passions and callings on our lives

  • Believing that we are qualified to do big things

  • Reframing our view of past work experiences and using them to serve us in the future

  • Staying true to yourself and not conforming to the status quo

  • Showing up and making memories in the imperfect moments
