When I started working with my first business development coach, I had spent nearly 4 years trying to build a business without help (or much success). My initial assignment was to implement energy management tools, which for me, evolved into an intentional, specific journaling practice.
For about 7 months, everyday, no later than 9 am, I would get on my computer, open Evernote, copy and paste my entry from the day before, and begin to update based on my current situation. I noted networking events, how many people I wanted to meet, tasks, to-do lists, worries/concerns, etc. It felt good. I felt competent.
Along the way, I met a couple of other coaches, who introduced me to getting an actual journal (paper only people), watercoloring the pages before writing and using a game to create journal prompts that would guide my entrepreneurial endeavors.
Holy Shit. What a difference! My routine was ramped up a notch and I got out of my “copy/paste/repeat” rut. My journaling took on new life and became a much more comprehensive picture of who and what I wanted to be. My thoughts became more expansive, yet more clear. I felt freerer, more open and more connected to my inner voice. In fact, The SoulFull BadAss would not be born if I didn’t journal!
I continue to explore ways to make my journaling routine more fun, creative and aligned with my vision. In fact, I created my own game - The Soul Spa!
If your routines are in rut and you feel stuck, I invite you to respond to this prompt from The Soul Spa using the cards I pulled - I am MASTER TEACHER in my ENERGY SOURCE; therefore, I am THANKFUL....
You can also schedule a 15 min audit with ME to discover how connecting with yourself through reflection can change your life!
