Reflecting on 2019 and Goal Setting for 2020

As we draw towards the end of 2019, have you been thinking about what has happened in your life this year and what 2020 will hold?

I have been and, of course, I’ve loved the opportunity to do some journaling about it!

Whether you’re a new or regular journaler, or journaling is something you’ve wondered about trying and never have, now is the perfect time to turn to the page to appreciate and acknowledge how far you’ve come in 2019, and to consider what you want your life to look like over the next year.

If we haven’t properly met before, I’m Elle Turner, a writer and personal success coach who helps intelligent, compassionate solopreneurs and creatives like you cultivate the clarity and supportive mindset you desire to run your business or bring your creative work to the world so that you can achieve YOUR OWN vision of personal success, fulfilment and impact.

How Mindset Journaling will help you manage fear

How Mindset Journaling will help you manage fear

Starting a business is hard, isn’t it?

I mean, it’s exciting too. 

The chance to do something meaningful for ourselves and our family.

The promise of autonomy, flexibility and freedom all while doing something we enjoy.

It’s what we’re looking for, what we’re desperate for, not because we’re selfish or self-absorbed, but because we know this is the best way to take care of everyone and everything we need to take care of and achieve a feeling of personal satisfaction and achievement too.

It’s the holy grail. And now we’re doing it.

But.
