Journal Your Way to Self Discovery

Self discovery is defined as the process of acquiring insight into one’s own character. I think one of the easiest ways to start your journey on self discovery is to answer questions designed to make you think about how you personally approach life. Using a journal to answer these questions gives you a private place to explore your answers and capture them so you can build on your self discovery.


Today we are going to start with a list of questions that you can work on. Towards the bottom of this post, you will find a PDF document that you can print out and put in your journal. This will allow you to work at your own pace, and move onto a new question when you have some time to journal. So let’s get started!

Self Discovery Questions:

  • If you had a theme song, what would it be?
  • When you think about your future, what do you envision?
  • To show someone that you love them, do you use words or actions?
  • Someone took credit for your hard work. What do you do?
  • When you have a problem to solve would you rather solve it on your own or ask someone close to you for advice?
  • Do you prefer to live in a city, the country or a suburban environment?
  • You can work at a job that you hate but you make tons of money OR a job that you love but it pays very little. Which would you choose?
  • What is your biggest strength?
  • Right now, what is the biggest “what if” on your mind?
  • What quality do you admire the most about yourself?
  • How would you describe your perfect day?
  • What do you do to relieve stress?
  • What’s your favorite holiday?
  • What book do you always recommend?
  • What is my definition of success?
  • Am I comfortable speaking in public?
  • Are you a glass half full or glass half empty person?
  • Who is a person that I admire? Why do I admire them?

As I mentioned at the start of this article, here is a list of these questions that you can print out and include in your journal for future self discovery sessions.

And now I would love to get your feedback. If you would like to keep receiving ideas on self discovery questions, where would you like to receive them? On Twitter, Facebook, or newsletters you receive by email? Would you prefer one questions at a time, or another grouping of questions that you can choose at your own pace. Please let me know your thoughts in the comments section below.
