So, to start off this topic – 5 Reasons to Journal, let us first take the time to define journaling.

 

What is journaling?

Journaling is the process of recording one’s feelings, thoughts, and experiences.

Journals offer a way to track our progress, maturity, and growth through self-awareness, relationships, developmental stages, and life transitions. If done with true honesty and openness, journaling can help us uncover hidden truths, traumas, and beliefs that have unconsciously guided us in our lives.

Resist the urge to rush through the journaling process. There will be days when you write more. And some days, you may journal less. You do not necessarily have to journal everyday as long as it is a consistent regular schedule.

When I thought of the meaning of this word, I thought to myself, this is what I need in my life. I don’t know about you, but I need some things to be restored in my personal life. I need God’s help to overcome some personal mountains that I’ve been combating.

As we approach a new year, I’d like us all to focus on building a growth mindset. I do not want any of you to stay rooted in a fixed mindset.

Why?

Because I know that all of us have at least one dream – at least one thing – that we all want for ourselves, our families, our children, and/or businesses.

And achieving a dream requires us to step outside of our comfort zones. Otherwise, you would have already achieved your dream!

What is a growth mindset?

First, we must give credit where it is due. The concept of a growth mindset and a fixed mindset was created by psychologist Carol Dweck. Second, a mindset refers to your attitude and belief about something.
