  • Conclusion- Wrapping it all up


Journaling is a great habit if you want to know more about yourself. I mean, who doesn’t want to know more about themselves? It’s kind of a loaded questions, because most people pretend that they want to get a better understand of who they are and what they want out of life but in actuality they want to spend more time complaining about their circumstances and blame the world for their bullshit.

  • Gratitude
    • All you need is a pen and paper, pick one thing, the first thing that comes to your mind. It doesn’t need to be something monumental either.
  • Reflecting
    • You’ll quickly see the pattern in your thinking, life, and behaviors by reflecting on yesterday.
  • Application
    • You will use this as a action plan to ensure you continue to move forward in life.
  • Convenient
    • You can do it anywhere. A few minutes are all that’s required.

Writing Prompts

Consider using writing prompts to add to the level of self-discovery. These are just ideas or questions that direct your writing.

There are lists available online and in books. Here are a few to get you started:

  • If I had an extra hour each day, how would I spend it?
  • What was my favorite job of all time?
  • What did I like about it?
  • What do I want my obituary to say about me?


Trauma, especially in childhood, can have a huge impact on your thoughts and behavior later in life. It doesn’t matter if the cause of the trauma seems silly as an adult. The fact that it was traumatic at the time is what’s important.

Being afraid of a bully or losing your pet in first grade might seem inconsequential today, but it wasn’t then. It had an impact.

Of course, bigger things like abuse or losing a parent can have even bigger consequences.

Final Tips

A few final tips for the committed. For the ones that truly want to make a difference in their lives. For those that believe that anything can happen if you dedicate the time, effort and mindset to overcome any obstacle.
