The cruel truth about being an entrepreneur is that you have to get real comfortable with change. Everything changes, and while you may be inclined to fight it, the truth is that you will always lose.
I’m not a huge fan of change, even as I know ‘ change is inevitable’. I’m a Taurus afterall, well known for our stubbornness, our dislike of new things, especially once we already have a favourite and our love of routine is pretty much legendary, yet life is all about change.
It’s all about stepping into the unknown daily and entrepreneurship is no different. As much I am intrinsically loathe the idea of changing some habits, routines etc, I’m also influenced by Aries’ capriciousness, and so will change things once I’ve made up in my mind that I will.
In this way, I’m an enigma and pretty much a wild card, making me very, very human.
In order to grow, we must allow change, if for no other reason than to preserve our sanity. When I started out as an entrepreneur, I believed with everything in me that I had to get it right the first time.
My website had to be right, the content right and I could not change things too much, lest my readers and clients get confused.
Sounds perfectly reasonable, yet the reality was anything but.
I’ve changed my mind about every single thing about my business after I launched it. The focus has changed, but I like the word ‘evolved’ more because with each lesson and experience I underwent on this journey, the clearer I saw my dream and was better able to follow it.
That meant I had to change things and believe me, even though I knew change is inevitable, even as I knew it would be for the best and life would be easier, I still resisted, I still agonized and I still had to convince myself of all the things I already knew.
Turns out, the more you put skin into the game, the more you learn about yourself and your true wants. These I learnt are good things; being able to be honest with yourself, means being honest with those who come to you. It means being honest about your intentions, motives, actions and desires and make the path towards them shine with clarity.
So I say all of this to prepare you for the changes that are coming to Ashlee Unscripted. This is a journey for me and my goal is to provide you with honest content, to provide an answer for your questions and to be a friend to you who visits my blog.
It’s not easy in this fast paced world and there are thousands of websites just like this one, but what makes this different, is the simple fact that you prefer it. That you’re reading it right now and for that I’m eternally grateful.
Don’t be afraid to grow, to change and transform. If you’re being called for positive growth, resolve it in your mind and let it happen. Trust that you will come out on the other side so much better, stronger and wiser!
You made it to the end! Wooot!
