Day 25

Gratitude: (the free PDF below features lined entries for your journal practice)

Vision: (the free PDF below features lined entries for your journal practice)

Affirmations: (the free PDF below features lined entries for your journal practice)

If there’s one source of magic in this course, it is this:


Action educates.

Action motivates.

Action cures fear.

Action builds confidence.

Action is the engine that drives imagination into reality.

So far your daily practices have all been contained within yourself and this journal. Today we begin to take these practices out into the real world.

“You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.”

Martin Luther King Jr.

This quote flies in the face of the old advice- “Plan your work, then work your plan.”

We can easily get caught up in the planning stages of any change we want to make. Change doesn’t need a complex chain of events, planned in advance, in order to take place. The only action steps that really matter are the ones you can do today, right now. Everything else is speculation and procrastination.

Keep this as simple as possible.

Read over your Vision from today’s practice. Write down ONE easy thing you could do today to take a small step toward that vision.

Action: (the free PDF below features lined entries for your journal practice)

Now, as soon as you can today, go do that thing.

Daily: (The pdf version below contains three lined pages for your daily journal)






The above is an excerpt from the upcoming The Lyceum Course Journal. We will be releasing it here for free as a Daily Prompt blog post. If you would like a physical copy, we will link to it here once it is released.


Suggested Use:

I realize a daily journal prompt on a blog is a little weird. This is how I would suggest using it: Open your favorite note-taking software such as Evernote, copy and paste this post into it, and write your daily entries there.
