5 simple exercises for more clarity about yourself
Chapter 8 from the CHANGE JOURNAL »
As soon as kids learn to speak, they ask questions like “Why is the sky blue?” or “How do they get the stripes into the toothpaste?” etc. Asking questions is not just limited to a child’s boundless curiosity.
Those who self-reflect and seek to improve the accuracy of their worldview can’t help but ask questions such as, “Who am I?” or, “Where did we come from, and where are we going?”. Besides, you will be searching forever if you don’t ask questions. Coming up with intelligent questions is easier said than done. What is it that I want to know? What would be an intelligent question to ask? And what kind of answer could be helpful? Oh my!
This is getting complicated. How will I manage? Easy, tiger! You’re in good hands here. This journal will take you further while keeping things simple. I promise. Some countless books and concepts try to explain things in detail. That’s okay if you intend to go to therapy afterward.
It is obviously totally unsuitable within a delightful setting such as this one. This still doesn’t mean you will have to do without any guidelines!
I have compiled inspiring exercises and lists, most of which are self-explanatory. They will help you better understand yourself: Where you are right now and where you may still want to go. What you want to do with the rest of your life – more or less. Or what excuses you might be carrying around with you – and how to shake them. Then there’s a list of all those things that are stressing you out right now. You may even discover that most of these tormentors rarely have long-term relevance.
My templates allow you to initiate change processes. I’m assuming you’re ready to undertake this little adventure because otherwise, you wouldn’t waste time reading these lines. And since it sometimes takes a while to set such a process in motion, you might want to check out our motivation hack.
The only important thing now is to be totally honest with yourself. That shouldn’t be a problem: This is your private journal, not your blog.
Have fun getting to know the most exciting person in the universe! That’s who you are in your life ... just like everyone else is in their own lives!
