Dying to be a Good Mother with Heather Chauvin

Meet Heather Chauvin

Today’s guest, Heather Chauvin, is a strategic parenting expert and has been featured as a TEDx speaker and on The OWN Network, CTV, and The Jenny McCarthy Show. She has also appeared in Entrepreneur and Real Simple magazines. She is the host of the Mom Is In Control Podcast where she reveals her most vulnerable truths about womanhood, marriage, parenting, living through stage 4 cancer and running a successful business—without burning out.


Resistance Is Not Always Bad

Without Resistance in our lives, we would never learn to get stronger, or to move through it. When we face resistance and tough times and find ways to deal and move through these challenges, we are creating strength and self-confidence that is invaluable. Just like lifting weights, when we are met with more resistance, or heavier weight, our muscles adapt over time to make that weight easier to lift. This is the same with mental resistance that we face. The more we face it head on, the easier it gets in the future.


You Are Powerful

It is amazing what some people can overcome. Heather Chauvin fought through stage 4 cancer and came out on top. She knows that if she can beat that, she can accomplish anything. We don’t need to beat cancer to be strong or resilient, all we need is to be focused and determined. When we are met with tough times, we can tap into that internal energy that gives us strength and peace at the same time. We can harness this energy through self-care and inner work.


Final Thoughts

There are so many stresses in our lives, and no matter what you do, or who you get on your team they will continue to present themselves at the most inopportune time. Whether it be kids, work, relationships, or money, we can bet on future struggles to present themselves. What separates those that strive through these struggles and those that succumb to them through unhealthy habits, lashing out and self destructive behaviors is that those that prosper move through the resistance with confidence. They know they are powerful enough to come out on top and have a lesson to learn through the struggles.


Tips For Meeting Resistance With Truth and Power

  1. What you resist, will persist. Rather than avoiding resistance, move into and through it.
  2. What helped Heather to heal on all levels was to start with the question, ‘How do you want to feel?” She referenced Danielle LaPorte’s Desire Map work and found the questions: ‘What do you want, What do you need and What do you desire?’ will always guide you towards your highest self.
  3. If you’re not learning, you’re done. No one knows it all and the world is constantly changing. If you close yourself off to knowledge and growth, you’re giving up.
