What Is Self-Discovery?

Self-discovery is the act of becoming aware of your own character, feelings, abilities, and true potential. Often times, we live life without actually knowing who we are supposed to be, what we’re supposed to do, and where we’re supposed to be going. And due to our lack of self-reflection, we miss out on incredible opportunities, we hinder our growth, and live a mediocre life. It hurts to admit, but it’s true.

The Road To Self-Discovery

Luckily the road to self-discovery isn’t miles away. The road to self-discovery starts with you. No one can help you discover yourself other than yourself. When you’re aware of your strengths and weaknesses, your inner being, and your surroundings, you’re able to take actions to grow, excel, and thrive. This is why it’s important to take time to discover yourself – your goals, your desires, your strengths, your purpose, etc!

Self-Discovery Journal Prompts

One of the best ways to get yourself to reflect on your life and get to know yourself better is through journaling. Sure not everyone enjoys journaling. However, journaling helps you think and release your deepest thoughts on to paper. Which is why, I have created 100 self-discovery journal prompts for you! Use these journal prompts to open your heart, reflect deeply, and create a new (and improved) you.
