Creative business success: the first step 🏆
Courtesy of @thejuliabraga
We all want to become really good at designing logos, websites, taking photos, writing (or whatever it is that you do)… ✨
But where does «success» really come from? Like, our own personal fullfiment?
Everything starts in our minds. Our thoughts become our actions, that become our habits and that shape our experiences. Are you in full control of your belief systems or are you stuck in them? 🤔
I built the framework because I was stuck in them. I built the framework because I dream big 🤷🏻♀ it took me a good part of 12 years to reshape my thought process and belief systems (I’m still working on it, but at least I have a system to work with).
I built the framework because I noticed that sometimes business problems are belief systems problems from the person commanding it, from dealing directly with my family business, clients, and even creatives like you. I built it so you can build your own systems and accountability processes.
As a Strategist, I often have to point out what doesn’t work… but what if what doesn’t work is the leader’s belief system? You can’t just change that on a whim. The urge to help was too big and I’m just one person against thousands of you.
The framework is currently being Beta tested by designers (and even by a former Coca Cola Senior Manager and Strategist: scream:), but you can go ahead and pre purchase it on a special early bird price 🐣
The first step is you. Everything you think become actions. Are you working towards the future you dream of or just getting by?
It goes like this:
Your beliefs and thoughts
Become your words
That become your actions
That become your habits
Which becomes your experience
Is this chain aligned with your aspirations?
Self awareness =becoming conscious of your thoughts so you can fulfill your aspirations.
This is the paiful part: uncovering mental patterns that are stopplng your progress.
Here’s a set of tools to help you:
Tools to help you take control:
Documenting: writing what you think and why, so you become aware of the pattern
Journaling: how are you reacting to things?
Journaling: what are your limiting beliefs about the world, people and yourself?
Journaling: what are your mental, physical, material, personal, financial, and career goals?
This takes a lot of work!
Building a business starts with you. But you already knew that. What you need and want are the tools to get there.
I won’t lie, it’s hard. But The Creative Business Success Framework can help your journey if you apply yourself.
