Self Discovery Journal Prompts
Self-discovery is a life long process of connecting to yourself at a core level. Use self-discovery journal prompts to learn more about who you really are.
What does it mean to connect to yourself at a core level?
It means being aware of the things that light you up, the ability to identify your core values, belief systems, and staying true to who you are.
Self-discovery is not a destination. It most definitely is a journey.
The easiest place to start with your self-discovery journey is at your belief system and your value system.
Your beliefs ultimately determine your value system.
Those values say what is most important to you and as a result, it determines the action steps that you will take.
Many people identify themselves by a role when asked, “Who are you?”. They see themselves as a mother, teacher, doctor, etc.
That works pretty well until you add other questions to that pool and you’re like, “Ummm I need to think about that or “I don’t know.”
When your self-discovery prompts come up either directly or indirectly you realize how much of yourself you’ve yet to know.
There is so much power recognizing there is more to you than the role you are currently playing.
Self-discovery is integral to your finding your life purposes.
Self-discovery allows you to change your current circumstances and positively impacts your future in more ways than one.
