5 Reasons To Journal Your Goals

By Debbie Allen

Writing out your goals, sharing them with others and
actually visualizing your success will bring you powerful

It doesn’t really matter how you record your goals – it only
matters that you take the time to really focus on them.
But, the more detailed your wants and needs are spelled out on
paper and in your mind, the more accurate they’ll be to

Even by writing out your goals you are more likely to
achieve them. It’s true, even if you wrote the goals and
then threw away your journal you are still more likely
to achieve your goals than avoiding this exercise all together.

The goals you write are still there in your subconscious
mind. Give your mind a boost and add more detail and
visualization to the goals you plan to accomplish.

For example: One of your personal goals maybe to own a new
sports car someday. Okay, now detail the type of car, color,
options and the date you plan on getting the new car.

Reason #1 Helps To Relieve Stress – The exercise of
journaling is not only good for your mental state,
but your physical state as well. Yes, it will help with confusion,
anger and stress.

what you truly want out of life and you begin to create a
blueprint towards a higher level of success.

Reason #2 Helps To Analyze Solutions – When you write out
your needs and wants honestly and completely, you will find
that you lose yourself in your writing.

You may find additional meaning to the things you say or do.
You may also find the solutions to overcome the obstacles
that are holding you back from reaching your goals.

When overwhelming life events are reduced to words
on paper,words that can be analyzed and seen from a different
perspective with our thoughts, you will gain a new
perspective of the situation and find new solutions for
seemingly difficult problems.

Reason #3 Discover Hidden Talents & Aspirations – Let your
feelings flow without critiquing the way you write them.
Simply pour out your heart and your feelings. You
will beamazed at how your writing and focus will improve. The
hardest part is getting started.

But once you have a dozen or so goals written
down, keep going until you reach 101. If you open your mind and focus
on where you want to go without setting limits the words
should flow quickly and easily.

Reason #4 Increase Your Creativity – Everyone has the
ability to become more creative. Journaling flues the
creative spirit and soon your ability to communicate on

therapist. A journal does not complain, cry or judge you in
anyway. Your goals journal will accept your
thoughts and ideas freely and easily without question. By
transcribing emotions onto pages, you can gain a better prospective
of your emotional life.

Not only is a journal a therapist and motivator to help you
reach your goals, it also will revel your dreams,
future accomplishments, hopes for the future and remind you of
your aspirations.

Journals are tools to help you discover the wisdom you
already possess. Sometimes, this wisdom will surprise you.
Other times, it will challenge you. Always, it will come
directly from you, empowering you to trust yourself and to
take action by giving you the deep-seated knowledge that you
