Conquer Those Mindset Roadblocks with Journaling

Journaling is about clarity, and when we gain clarity about roadblocks that are holding us back, we’re better able to deal with them. Although journaling can be useful for a number of reasons, it’s perhaps best for personal growth, and breaking down barriers is a valuable goal. Here are a few common types of roadblocks and how to use journaling to defeat them.

Money Roadblocks

Perhaps the most valuable tool in the fight against money roadblocks is your budget, but there’s no need to make your budget and your journaling entirely separate entities. Tracking your spending, after all, is similar to journaling, and tracking down your thoughts on your budgeting progress can help you find out what works best for you.

Furthermore, tracking your financial roadblocks is about uncovering your relationship with money itself. By journaling about it, you’ll be better able to find out what’s holding you back and how to improve in the future. Even if it takes time to make the progress you’re seeking, journaling about money lets you spend the rest of your time focused on other major goals.

Insecurity

Many of us are plagued with feelings of insecurity, and journaling can be a great technique for breaking down these roadblocks. Perhaps the most common type of insecurity is imposter syndrome, which is common among people who don’t feel as if they belong or deserve to be in a particular field. By tracking down times when your feelings of insecurity or imposter syndrome pop up, you’ll be able to craft an action plan for accepting these feelings and letting them pass promptly.

Simply acknowledging that imposter syndrome is a part of your life lets you recognize intrusive feelings for what they are. Feelings of insecurity may never fully go away, but, through journaling, you can help make them nothing more than minor distractions.

Productivity Roadblocks

People often joke about procrastination, but productivity roadblocks are a major issue for many, especially in the digital era. If you have a bullet journal, consider making quick notes about your progress during the day and times when you’re unable to be at your best. Look for patterns and find ways to set yourself in an ideal environment for success.

If you view low productivity as a major setback, consider setting aside a few minutes every night looking back at what you think held you back during the day. Focus on the positive as well: A few minutes in the morning covering how you intend to be productive can set you on a course for success. Try listing the three most important tasks that you MUST finish that day and you’ll start your workday focused and determined.

Journaling is a powerful tool and it helps us uncover what we need to succeed in our personal and professional lives. If you, like most people, are currently being held back by roadblocks, make sure to use journaling as a way to uncover roadblocks, form actionable plans, and thrive.
