You are a resilient soul. Use beautiful powerful tools given to you by the universe like a journal to focus on the here and now. A daily practice of written affirmations will serve as an empowering reminder of who you are and where you want to be today.

Of course, the most important place to be in this instant is the present! This presence is crucial for your growth and progression. However difficult it is to live in the present when things are far from perfect, it will help you form solutions and the answers will come from places you have never imagined. Own your feelings of guilt or inaptitude and you will attract solutions throughout the day.

Here are 5 tips to write a precise journal entry every day to help you visualise exactly how you see yourself fulfilling your potential in the moment you are in.

1. Use the words ‘I am’ to begin each entry. For example, I am here right now; I am in the perfect moment right now.

Close your eyes, take a deep breath and take stock of who you are right now.

2. Present tense — remember that the present is a portal into creativity, connection and infinite love. The Universe, God, Mother Nature (whatever name you wish to use for your Higher Power) has a plan for you. Take a deep breath knowing you are being looked after in every moment.

3. Remain positive.

Remember that you’re not alone in your quest for fulfilment. Whatever your goal is for today, remind yourself that everything has its particular time. If it doesn’t happen the way you want it in the time you have planned then know that the reality will be better.

4. Be brief. If you remain brief in your daily affirmations, you’re more likely to make this into a daily routine. Be concise and it will help you to remain consistent.
