This is an activity in a book called “Journal to the Soul.” I made many copies when I lived in Santa Monica. Three women showed up to the first meeting and we tried to meet a couple more times, but never seemed to be able to make it happen.
The #1 KEY to making something happen is Knowing what you want. No. 2 is Seeing (i.e. visualizing) yourself doing it. Knowing what holds you back is key so if you write this letter to yourself, be brutally HONEST!
Then, write a 2nd letter telling yourself how you’re going to get past these obstacles.
Finally, put one foot in from of the other, day by day. Do one small thing toward that goal EVERYDAY. But don’t beat yourself up if you miss a day or two; pat yourself on the back and take another step.
Give yourself a small reward every now & then. And most importantly, ENJOY EVERY STEP OF YOUR JOURNEY. Even enjoy the mistakes by learning the lesson.
I will tell you a secret: I have made a lot of mistakes & continue to make them, but I won’t EVER give up on my dream of being a world-renowned published author.
Peace & love to you all,

Her husband made a video for her novel. He wrote the song too:

Have you ever considered writing a letter to yourself? I remember being instructed once to coach myself the way I would coach someone else. So what if I gave myself advice the way I would a friend? I want you to give this some thought and then write yourself a letter.
Maybe talk to yourself in writing about discouragements, failures, successes, how the job is going, the state of the family, your worries, etc. Then read the letter and give yourself advice. Honest, truthful advice.
Are poor eating habits standing in the way of you getting out and doing more? Is your out-of-control spending standing in the way of you pursuing a more likeable job? Is procrastination holding you back from living life? Is your general negative attitude keeping you from excelling?
Whatever the issues might be, give yourself advice. Think about it and let me know your thoughts.
