Writing is one of those topics that usually have either an “I love writing” or an “I hate writing” response. I hear it all the time from clients. Often, they either don’t know how to write effectively to get the results they want in their business, or they do, but don’t have the time.


When you are writing for growth in your business you should absolutely seek the help of a professional copywriter if that skill is not in your wheelhouse. They will help you to flush out the right message to make an impact and create the growth you are seeking. Their focus is on creating a message you will be proud to put out in the world.

There is another type of writing though. That is writing for yourself. This is the type of writing that gets your words out of your head and onto paper. It is the type of writing that helps you heal from all kinds of feelings including stress, grief, overwhelm or anything else that is causing you resistance in your life and holding you back from being your best self.


When you choose to do this type of writing, it doesn’t require getting results or having perfect spelling and grammar. It doesn’t have to ever see the light of day for anyone other than you. You decide what goes on the paper and you decide who, if anyone, sees it.


Here are 3 tips for writing for growth and healing


1.) What is on your mind?

Decide what is causing the most resistance for you. It may be a combination of things. Are you stressed about a big work project? Did you lose a close friend or loved one recently that you miss? Are you overwhelmed with your workload and your personal life? Are you frustrated with something in your life?


When you try to hold everything inside and appear to everyone around you that you have it all together, you will eventually end up having to drop the façade and it won’t be in a graceful way. If you prefer to deal with things on your own before asking for help, writing is a great way to get that mess of feelings, thoughts and emotions out of your body and mind.


You can write things out on a notepad (which I prefer) or you can type it out on your computer. It really doesn’t matter what method you use, as long as you are being honest with yourself and just doing a brain dump to get it all out there.


2.) Re-read your words and see where you can get support.

Once you have dumped everything out of your head and onto the paper, re-read what you wrote. Make notations next to each area about any ideas that came to you as far as solutions, people you can ask for support, parts of your workload you can delegate out to someone else, things in your personal life that you could get help with or stop doing.


Take time to look at it in a new light. Now that you put it all out there, you have freed up creative space in your head for solutions.


3.) Take action and create change.

Having clarity around what is bothering you, what you are resisting in your life, and what is holding you back is helpful in creating the change you want to have.


Who can you ask for support? Can you delegate projects effectively that maybe you thought you had to do on your own before? Are there tasks you are doing that you don’t enjoy or don’t even have to do? Maybe you are doing them because you think you should or that people would think less of you if you weren’t doing them.


Break down what actions you can take and start taking one small step each day toward releasing your resistance, creating change, and healing yourself so you can be your best self all the time, not just as a front.


Writing doesn’t have to be a love/hate relationship. It can be something you do just for fun too. Try to shift how you look at writing and put it in a positive light. Accept the challenge of trying it out as a tool that will help you, rather than something you dread doing and see what comes of it. You may be surprised at how much it helps, heals and that you really do enjoy it.
