If you’re passionate about making a positive difference in the world and you want clarity on what you can do, I recommend you journal for impact.
Let me explain why…
I believe we’re living in pivotal times. I know this sounds extreme, but I often wonder if we’re navigating the crossroads of collective evolution or extinction. After all, there’s a lot in the world that just isn’t working – you don’t need me to give you a list here, you can see what I’m talking about with your own eyes.
But it does beg the question – what to do?
And more specifically what CAN I do?
It’s so easy to go down a dark passage consumed by thoughts about the future, but I choose to believe that we are NOT powerless. In fact, I choose to believe that we were born for these times and that we incarnated with a mission for these times.
The reason I say this with such confidence is I believe each of us holds a message we were born to share. And the work of our lifetime is to uncover that message, own that message – and then share that message with fearlessly visibility, knowing that our words will activate the path of another.
(YES! We are ^that^ powerful in each other’s lives.)
I know what you’re thinking…
How can we know what we came here to say?
My answer is to journal with intentionality – and here’s why…
We can journal for impact because journaling:
- Solves problems
- Injects beauty
- Sparks new insight
- Shapes new perspectives
- Inspires new lines of thought
- Creates excitement
Inside your journal, you crack open the space to explore. Contemplate. Question. Connect. Create. Challenge – and more. When you journal, you enter into a conversation with yourself. In turn, you make new discoveries about yourself.
You discover who you really are.
You find your passions.
You know your truth.
And somewhere along the way, you discover the message you were born to share. The discovery is inevitable if you commit to the path – because your message is hidden and woven into the tapestry of your unique life.
You are here to share your YOU – that unique force that’s personal to you.
Your soul’s message is influenced by:
- Who you are.
- What you know,
- Where you’ve been,
- What you’ve seen,
- What skills you’ve mastered,
- What words you’ve heard,
- What life has taught you,
- Etc. etc.
ALL your personal experiences collide together to create a unique perspective on life.
A perspective held by YOU alone.
This means you can see things others can’t. You can create opportunities others overlook. You can solve problems others would wrestle with for years.
That’s why your uniqueness is something you can offer to the world (and why I say your message is your greatest gift to the world). Trust that your message CAN be monetised. You can build a business around it. In fact, the message you came here to share is one of the most valuable assets you own.
The question is: Are you doing enough to SURFACE it, SHAPE it, and SHARE it?
This is my invitation to you.
- Remember that you came here with a message – and answer the call.
- Go deeper into yourself than you’ve gone before. (Here’s a podcast episode that will help you do exactly that).
- Decide to know your truth.
- Take risks with your visibility – choose to be fearlessly visible.
- Show up and serve consistently.
And if you’re in any doubt as to the potency of this work, remember this…
YOU hold a piece of someone else jigsaw.
Right now, there are people who will benefit from hearing what you have to say – because of the way that only you can say it. Your unique blend of stories is a magnet. Your personality creates a field that attracts aligned people. Your essence and presence is an activator.
In these times, your YOUness is a potent force for impact.
And if you let it, your journaling will show you the way.
Here’s to more YOU.
