Self Reflection Activity
For things to change, YOU must change first. So begin each morning by asking yourself, “Why do I strongly believe what I believe?” Constantly challenge your beliefs. It’s this type of self-questioning that keeps creativity alive.
Journaling gives you the power and insight to learn more about yourself every day. Through a process of self-discovery, inner exploration, experimentation, application, practice, repetition and reinforcement, you WILL access your true self.
Set a specific time each day to journal. Establish it as a part of your normal routine and regard it as a cornerstone of your self-awareness process. Begin by exploring some of your conscious beliefs:

If I gave up believing I’m responsible for everything, I would…
