Oh my god. how do I stop this happening to her?
My journey from failure to fulfilled
Hi, i'm elisa
From lost to leader
My daughter had been born just a few weeks before. That day I was taking a shower, as I did everyday, and as so often happened, I was being hugely triggered: past memories of abusive relationships were dousing me head to toe in shame, guilt and disappointment.
The truth was, I actually felt like I was failing in every way. Failing as a mum, a businesswoman, a wife, daughter, friend, failing financially (I could make money but that's where it stopped). I was not the person I had wanted to be.
Just then I looked down at my daughter, a tiny baby sitting happily in her bouncer. Suddenly, I was struck with horror:
'Oh my God. How do I stop this happening to her?'
It was quickly answered: 'Elisa, you have to change'.
In that moment I made a conscious decision to be the best role model I possibly could be.
If you want to know how I changed, then it's probably similar to your journey: I hired a coach, threw myself into personal and spiritual development, and took great amounts of massively uncomfortable action.
And I've got to say, I became a better person. A better mother. A better wife. I changed career. I started two new businesses that I'm passionate about.
It wasn't easy. I'll correct that statement - it isn't easy: I still work on my personal growth every.single.day.
But it's worth it.
Now, I cultivate joyfulness. Success to me is direction, purpose, presence and contribution. I consciously recreate myself every day. Some days I take great action, some days I pivot quickly after realizing I've gone the wrong way. But I'm always moving, always growing. I want to help you do the same.

VISION & VALUES
My ultimate vision is to contribute to the spiritual and material progress of humanity. My values change depending on what I want to grow
God to me is Spirit, better than my highest thoughts can take me. God as a value requires me to trust and surrender to my higher purpose
After not feeling joy for YEARS (repressed emotions), it's now a core value. If it doesn't bring me joy I don't do it or I create it
In my experience, there is no more difficult, energy-consuming or time wasting task than not being myself. Authenticity is a core strategy of staying true to myself
I one time courage was one of my core values. But then I found myself staying too much in my comfort zone so I am focusing on fear - if it scares me, that's where I lean in
