Day 1: Ready for change? Let's go!
Welcome to DAY 1 of our 10-Day Chaos to Cooperation Virtual Retreat.
I am so excited for you to get started!
I'd like to kick-it-off with some goal setting. When you signed up for this event, I asked you to consider what you would like to get out of our time together.
Today, I'd like you to consider the outcome you have in mind for this journey. Why did you sign-up for this event? To be more tolerant, more patient, less permissive, more conscious?
I don't want you to focus on your child's behaviors - yet. First, I want you to set some personal goals for yourself.
Writing down your goals is one of the best ways to achieve them. Your goals should be meaningful to you, measurable so you can track your progress, and most importantly - achievable.
STEP ONE: Choose ONE CHALLENGE at a time to work on.
Don't overwhelm yourself with trying to address every difficult issue at once. Use the worksheet below to help you identify your habits of reacting, and set goals based on what you most want to change about your current experience.

It may be tempting to want or expect immediate change.
However, you can't change a pattern of behavior overnight, when it has been influenced by a lifetime of memories and took years to create.
Over the next ten days, I will outline the steps to shifting your language, perceptions, and actions, so you can move from an experience of chronic chaos to one of willing cooperation.
But, you'll need to "rinse and repeat" this process over and over until it becomes your "new pattern."
So, let's not waste another minute. Go set some goals for yourself and then share them with our community in the Facebook group GOALS post!
Be kind to yourself this week. Remember it's about being conscious... not perfect!
See you tomorrow!
