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.

Support your personal growth with Success Journaling

Support your personal growth with Success Journaling

When I started my business, I thought I knew what I was doing.

I was starting a business.

That was it.

I knew I had a lot to learn, but I was excited.

I knew it would take time, but that was OK.

I knew there was so much I didn’t know.

But I’d learned stuff before.

I could do it again.

Right?

And I was on my way to getting what I wanted. To building a life round what mattered to me most, to doing something I enjoyed – finally – and to having autonomy over my own schedule.

Um, NO.

Let’s get everyone journaling

When I first started Elle Turner Creative I was on a mission to help us create a life around what matters to us most, achieve our own personal vision of success and fulfilment and have a positive impact on our world, all while bringing more fun and creativity into our lives.

That’s still my mission, but I’m even more committed to it today than the day I started.

Personal development is a lifelong, evolving activity

Personal development is a lifelong, evolving activity

Are you doing what you wanted to do when you were a child?

I’m not. Over the years I’ve wanted to be a dancer, a physiotherapist, a police officer, a diplomat and a florist.

That’s only the jobs I’ve wanted to do and never done!

Let’s just say, what I’ve wanted has changed and evolved a few times over the years.

And although I finally believe I’ve found what I want to do with my life, (woot!) I’m very open to the evolution of my business over time.

Base your decisions on what matters to you most

Base your decisions on what matters to you most

One of the reasons that I started my own business was that I wanted to create the rest of my life around what and who mattered to me most.

I wanted to be able to focus on my family. To be around to support my children through the important exam phase in their lives. To be around for my parents who on occasion needed some support.

I wanted to have autonomy over my own schedule so that I could have the peace of mind that goes along with being able to choose, being able to decide where you place your time and energy in a way that feels good, not in a way that makes you resentful.

That all sounds coherent and hangs together now, but rewind some years and all I knew was that I felt frustrated with the way my life was unfolding.
