What To Do If You’re Terrible At Journalling

We've heard about the many benefits of journaling, but what happens if think you're 'terrible' at this practice?

This belief is more common than you think and I blame those well-intentioned English teachers! If writing isn't your thing it's all too easy to fall into the trap of believing your writing isn't quite good enough. Then, when we're hard on ourselves, we get in our own way and stop our ideas and insights flowing.

GOOD NEWS 🙌

You don't have to be an A-grade writer to get insane value from journaling. All you need to be able to do is extract insight and capture your wisdom on the blank page.

So if you're looking for some sure-fire ideas to defeat the blank page and 'get to writing', this episode is for you.

Check it out and discover: 

  1. What journaling is - and what it most definitely isn't. 
  2. Why 'terrible' is a disempowering label for journaling [and in life].
  3. Three tips that overcome 'terrible' and get you writing. 
  4. How to ditch the 'terrible' belief once and for all. 
  5. What becomes possible when you 'lower the bar' [and why this is a very good strategy to enhance your practice]. 
  6. How to use the instinctive elaboration mental reflect to enhance your journaling practice. 
  7. How to turn your journaling practice into the extraction of your inner wisdom. 

As always, I've got a free journaling prompt to help you put theory into practice. I carefully craft and select these questions to crack you open so that you can unlock the deeper stories and insights within.
