Building a strong mindset requires time, effort, consistency and of course, being aware of appropriate techniques to cultivate the desired mindset in life. We may not have had the access to techniques in our growing up years but the good news is that we can always initiate a change in ourselves and be accountable for our actions in the NOW

This blog outlines journal prompts that you can use if you feel stuck in any area of your life. It supports you to bring in intention and purpose to everything that you do.

Please ensure you sit with a notebook and pen or a device of your choice to note down your thoughts. I would suggest a notebook to minimize distractions and stay connected with the process of writing your thoughts down using a pen/pencil for a better connection with self. Ensure the chosen area is free from distractions.
