Hi everyone – Welcome to Day 1 of the 21-Day Journaling Challenge, or 21DJC for short!


First off, I want to say I’m blown away by your enthusiasm for the challenge. Many of you jumped on board upon the opening for sign ups 3 days ago. Some of you have experience journaling in the past; while the rest do not journal, but are keen to give it a shot. We now have an amazing 428 official, registered participants, and it’s increasing as we speak!

For the 428 of you who have registered, I want you to give yourself a pat on your back. Because you have put your name up for the challenge, you have sent out the intention to the universe that you want to grow. And trust me – this is what’s going to happen in this 21-day journaling challenge. As long as you commit yourself to journal the questions assigned every day, you *will* grow – in your consciousness, in your self-awareness, in your connection with your inner self.

I’ve written a list of 8 Tips To Excel in 21DJC in the announcement post. Please make sure you read them and follow them to a tee to get the best out of the challenge.

Please Use Proper English

Because this is a journaling challenge and there are potentially going to be long passages of text, I require the cooperation of everyone to follow Tip #6 in particular – which is on using proper capitalization, punctuation, spelling and grammar in your answers.

I noticed some registrants using chat speak when signing up (e.g. “i did all d thing over and out wid ney email id”) and some registrants using full capital letters (e.g. “I LOVE THIS IDEA AND I WOULD LIKE TO SIGN UP FOR THE NOVEMBER CHALLENGE AS WELL”). While it’s only a small handful of registrants, it’s honestly quite painful to read such posts, and enough to ruin the experience of the challenge.

We’re doing this as a community, so let’s be considerate to everyone who will be reading our answers. Use capital letters if it’s the first letter of the sentence; small letters for the rest. Use proper English words that you’d find in a dictionary, not chat speak/short hands. Punctuate accordingly – use commas and semi colons where necessary; avoid run-on sentences. Do a quick scan to make sure your spelling is right before you post your answers. Let’s make this a positive experience for everyone who’s taking part!

(For participants who do not comply with #6 in your answers, I’m afraid I’d have to remove your postings, for the benefit of the community. I seek your understanding on this – Thank you!)


With that said, let’s now move to our first question, shall we? 😉

21DJC Day 1

Today’s question is a simple, age-old, yet powerful question:

What Would You Do If You Have 1 Million Dollars?

Money notes

Seriously – what would you do? Would you save them in a bank? Would you use them to buy stocks? Would you share them with other people? Would you invest the money in your business? Would you give them away to charity? Would you quit what you’re doing and start a whole new life?

What would you do with your million dollars?

(Today’s question can be found in #45 of 101 Important Questions To Ask Yourself In Life.)

Your Task Today:

  1. Reflect and answer today’s question. Like I mentioned in Tip #4 of 8 Tips To Excel in 21DJC, there’s no word limit – whether minimum or maximum. Write as few or as many words as you want. It’s all up to what you want to express!
  2. Share your answer. After you are done writing, copy and paste your answer in the comments area and post it there.
  3. Check out other participants’ answers. Other participants will be sharing their answers too, so feel free to read and reply to their answers. This is a group course, so let’s support each other in these 21 days.

Look forward to reading all your answers! 😀
