How to Set and Reach Your Biggest Goals by Future Self Journalling 

In this guest blog, we consider the concept of Journalling but not about the current time! Read on to find out what we mean…

When you think of your future self, you may imagine someone that has it all. They may have the house, the car, the savings account, and the job you’ve always wanted.

Oddly enough, staying in tune with your goals could help you reach success faster than putting them away until your goal deadlines approach. And, future self journalling could be the magic trick. Future self journalling is writing to your future self like you are your future self. Doing this could transform your way of thinking and push you to reach your biggest goals each and every day. 

How to Start Self-Journalling

Starting out may sound intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be. Sit down with your coffee, a pen, and your favourite journal for 10 to 30 minutes.

Write about how you see yourself in the next year, five years, or even ten years. Would you like to have that car, that career, or that hefty savings account? What would it take for you to get there? To keep up the good work, hang your affirmations all throughout your living area for extra motivation.

Keep Up the Good Work With Journal Prompts

Once you’ve got started, it may be another story to keep it going. Promise yourself to sit down five days of the week to write in your future journal. If you get writer’s block, download our journal prompts to spark inspiration and help you reach the next big step.

How to Get the Most Out of Your Future Self Journal

Ensure that you keep these habits up for at least 66 days to create a strong-standing habit. Once you’ve done that, this act may seamlessly habit without having to get yourself to sit down and journal.

Each month of journalling, try to focus on one area of your life (and get specific!) Print out our manifestation checks to write out your goal and hang it on your wall for a simple reminder of what you’re working so hard for. 

Goal setting shows where you’d like to be in a certain amount of time, but it may be another obstacle when achieving these goals. Keep up with your career, your lifestyle, and your budget using Mint’s app and these go-to printables.
