The purpose of this paper is to develop a sense of your journey towards Self-Authorship, outline your personal self-development plan, and to incorporate what you have learned in the course into your life in a meaningful and productive way. In your paper you will attend to the following questions:
a. What is your definition of self-authorship?
b. How would you know when you had reached a point of self-authorship? Where do you think you are now (i.e., on a scale of 1-10, how self-authored are you)? PROVIDE EXAMPLES.
c. What are the three most important concepts in self-authorship? (hint hint! From PowerPoint!!!) How do you plan to achieve those in your own life? GIVE EXAMPLES. What concepts did you learn in this course that will assist you with this? GIVE EXAMPLES.
d. What resources will you need to achieve self-authorship? Are those resources in place now? Why or why not? How do you plan to get them if they are not in place now? GIVE EXAMPLES!
e. What are some barriers (systemic barriers, meaning barriers across many systems, such as personal barriers, family barriers, societal barriers) to you achieving self-authorship? What is your plan for removing or disposing of those barriers? Provide as much detail as possible in your plan.

We have explored: Awareness Personality Childhood Relationships Work Stress Gender Loss Mental Health Getting Out of Yourself We discussed how our beliefs shape our narratives The stories we tell about ourselves Each of you challenged a limitation that you set for yourself Through these challenges we learn what we are truly capable of We develop the ability to edit our stories This means if I find that I have a belief or limitation that doesn’t serve me, I can challenge it and create a new belief about myself What happens when we have limitations that go un-challenged? Beliefs Take a moment to think of three things you believe about yourself Where do these beliefs come from? Did you learn them from someone else or did you develop them yourselves? Have you ever challenged or revised these beliefs? If we update our resume, why don’t we update our beliefs about ourselves? Are you holding on to outdated beliefs about yourself? What new beliefs have you developed about yourself throughout this semester?
