When mothers first become mothers, it is difficult for women achieving continuous growth within themselves because they are just too damn busy with caring for the kids but eventually, it is important for women to strive to achieve continuous growth in whatever direction they wish to grow in. There is always room for growth in everyone. There is always something more to learn, something more to do, something better you can do. I, for one, believe in women achieving continuous growth and encourage the people around me to do the same.
This year, I have decided to take on the CRAZY task of learning Mandarin after years of telling myself I would never bother. Never. So never say never. Why have I said never? Because for an over the hill person like me who has a brain of zero memory capacity, I have no faith that I can learn the language. But then my 70 year old Dad did it. He had no knowledge of Mandarin before but out of pure interest, he learnt it within 2-3 years and can now read fluently and learn the rich authentic Chinese culture that comes with only knowing the language well. So, I have thrown the boomerang out and am hoping it does not come back to hit me. Wish me luck on that. I start next week. All in the name of women achieving continuous growth.
Another thing I am doing is learning Adobe Illustrator (an illustration software), something I have wanted to do for the last 10 years. Yes, I really want to know how to represent my ideas graphically since I’m such a crap free hand artist, so yeah. I have finally been blessed to find a tutor who will come to my house to teach me just that. I had my first lesson yesterday and it was great!!! He is a fantastic teacher but I am such a slowwwwwwwwwwwwww student. I can hardly remember anything that he teaches. Sigh. A clear sign of old age. Seriously. But I will persist and practise or my name is not ……….
That is my aim to achieve continuous growth this year. And of course, the perennial goal of losing weight. I don’t even bother mentioning that anymore. It will happen when it happens. It will only happen when I go on more juice fasts and eat very, very little. That I have learnt thanks to my good friend, who is an inspiration for me to stay on track to achieve continuous growth.
Women achieving continuous growth, it is a must. So you feel your soul grow with you…….**************************************************************************
Who is Mamapumpkin?
Mamapumpkin spent 7 years in London committing crimes to gain her Bartlett BSc in Architecture. She spent 7 years as a Stay At Home Mom raising her children as documented in this Mamapumpkin blog since over 10 years ago and thereafter returned to the Corporate World stronger than ever. Her last job as Country Director of a British Railway Signalling organisation saw her getting ill with an aortal and mitral heart valve regurgitation and early stage cancer. Through her journey from working to not working to working again, she sets out to prove to all women that they can do anything and everything that they set out to do; as long as they have that fire of desire burning within and the drive to work hard. Even better with oodles of love, passion and integrity.
Despite being ill, she has grown a network marketing business from very little knowledge and experience in the otherwise infamously known MLM (Multi-Level Marketing) industry, racing from an income of ZERO to RM 100,000 monthly in merely 2 years. She is a firm believer of the MLM business model but realises the pitfalls too and understands how and why the majority of people would shy away (or zoom far away) from any MLM business.
She is now pondering the title of her new book, From Zero to 100,000 RM monthly in 2 years and has a sequel in the pipeline with the aim of helping real professionals succeed in the World of MLM. Always the giver, Mamapumpkin has supported orphans for over 30 years and has now extended her care to the sick, single mothers, and even struggling families. She believes that with the MLM business model, we can all have a life of our own desires to enable real contribution into the world.
A beautiful life without limits.
Mamapumpkin currently manages the Homeschooling Hub Malaysia on Facebook. She also runs Working Women Malaysia (not THAT kind of Working Women!), Mamapumpkin - Creating A Life of Abundance, and Funky Moms on Facebook to offer REAL support to all women who want career and life success. She is a living testimony that women really can have a lot. Being financially free has enabled her to travel the world anytime anywhere doing anything, and she spends most of her day to day with her children, reading and supporting other women.
