While in graduate school, I was told I wasn’t “PhD material” and it rocked me to my core. I went on a multi-year journey to figure out what material I was.
That journey began with me believing I wasn’t a good writer then led me to believing I was a procrastinator, and finally led to me believing that I wasn’t focused. As I climbed deeper and deeper into the rabbit hole of trying to understand why I wasn’t PhD material, a shift began to happen. I realized that I was once again letting external opinions influence how I thought of myself.
Eventually, I no longer was trying to figure out if I was PhD material or not. I was trying to understand why a comment like that could knock me off my center.
Over time, I created a self-discovery practice to support my inner world that was full of visions and dreams, but without action was remaining unleashed and unknown.
The Intellectual Will journal is a practice for intentional dreaming that will help you pursue opportunity and teach you how to manage your ideas with clarity, structure, and purpose. It will help you knock down your obstacles: Overcommitted. Directionless. Being misunderstood. Ideas living in your notebooks. Following someone else’s path.
Stop thinking that you will never achieve your dreams.
The Intellectual Will journal is a complete system. You’ll be given the tools needed to pivot to new directions, walk an uncertain path, and prioritize goals so that you can take purposeful action.
