Do you ever use writing practices to create change in your life?

Writing Your Destiny picSometimes, at this time of year, we may look back at the year, and wonder what we’ve accomplished.

There may be projects that you intended to start, or changes you wanted to make, that just didn’t go anywhere.

It’s about this time of year when I start to review how my writing practices have been supporting or not supporting changes I have wanted to make during the year.  I find that writing is one of the strongest tools that we can use for creating big change in our lives.

As we move towards the latter part of this year, I’d like to offer some ideas from my book Writing Your Destiny, to help us  finish out this year and style, and begin to think about what we would like to see happen in 2016.

In the next couple months, look for posts on:

  1. Slowing Down to Accomplish More
  2. Defining Your Destiny
  3. The Rhythm of Your Destiny
  4. How we reinforcing or repel our Destiny
  5. Finding Destiny Partners
  6. Daily Writing Practices
  7. Creating Your Destiny Scene
  8. Creating a 10 Year Plan, and why that’s even a good idea
  9. Leading Your Life
  10. Sharing Your Destiny

As I share practices that I’ve seen work time and time to help you use the power of writing to make big leaps in your life, see if any of these ideas resonate with you.

I strongly encourage you to take some time to ask how you have spent your time this year.  What mattered to you in 2015? What would you still like to do before the end of the year?

Some of you may want to go deeper into this material, after the next few months, and join my 4 week Writing Your Destiny course in November.  Hopefully, you will enjoy this series of posts, and find some tools for ending 2015 with a flourish.

This week, I would like to suggest you contemplate the following question:

If you had a treasure map of your ideal destiny in life, how far are you from reaching your treasure?

On Wednesday, I’m going to offer up a simple exercise that plays with this idea of creating a destiny treasure map.

For now, just consider seeing your destiny as a treasure, and how you actually have the map within you.
