Limiting beliefs are within all of us. They are the subconscious thoughts that hold us back from achieving our dreams and manifesting our desires. We can use journal prompts to question limiting beliefs and ultimately remove them, giving us a fast lane to success.

Alimiting belief is anything that you hold negatively about yourself or the world around you. They are thoughts and feelings that do not allow you to have confidence in yourself or faith that things will work out.

They can become major abundance blocks, holding you back from manifesting the life you love (and deserve).

Removing your limiting beliefs will make your manifestation a lot easier and more fun. And a great way to overcome your limiting beliefs is through journaling and using the following journal prompts.

Journal prompts are simple questions you answer in your journal that will help clear things up for you. Here are seven journal prompts that will help you question your limiting beliefs.

Journal Prompt 1: I am incapable or unworthy of…

By writing down the things you believe you are unworthy or incapable of achieving, you uncover your most obvious limiting beliefs. You are making a limiting beliefs list.

When you begin to search your mind for the answers to what is holding you back, you will find out that maybe you haven’t started that business because you’re afraid you’ll fail.

Or maybe you haven’t asked out the person you’re interested in because you don’t think they would be interested. The first step to removing your limiting beliefs is to become aware of them.

Journal Prompt 2: I believe I am incapable because…

This journal prompt is designed to dig immensely deep into your reasons for believing your shortcomings. It will force you to stare your fears straight in the face. This is one of the more uncomfortable self-limiting belief questions.

Although this can be a painful process, it is also necessary. You may find out that the things you believe are ridiculous, and you have simply manufactured them. Or, you may uncover a past experience that has set the belief in your mind.

Journal Prompt 3: If I believed I was capable of anything, I could…

Here we start to take a positive turn. When you have identified what your beliefs are and why you think that way, it is time to look in the opposite direction.

Begin to visualize what your life would be like if you believed you could achieve your goals and dreams. Who would you be, and how would you act? What lifestyle choices would you make that are different than the ones you make now?

Imagine that your life is the way you want ti to be now and prompt your brain into believing that this is possible for you.

Journal Prompt 4: I can build my belief in myself by…

When you finish this prompt, you will outline all of the ways you can strengthen your personal beliefs and self-esteem.

You can make a list of the reasons why you are capable of achieving the things you want, and the ways you can better yourself to be more likely to manifest your goals.

Journal Prompt 5: Reasons, why I am worthy of my dreams, are…

Overcoming self-limiting beliefs is mostly changing your mind and shifting your perspective.

Begin to focus on all the reasons why you DO deserve to have the life you want. You will see yourself in a more positive light, and it will help you express gratitude towards the things you have, allowing you to attract more.

Journal Prompt 6: By chasing my dreams I will become…

For more inspiration in helping you shrink the list of your limiting beliefs, you can focus on the ways you will change internally as a result of chasing your goals.

It is not always about the end goal, as much as it is about who we become in the process. Think of the things you’ll learn, the confidence you’ll cultivate, the people you will attract. Having extra motivation will inspire you to see yourself in a new light.

Journal Prompt 7: I will no longer believe that…

When you write down the things that you will no longer tolerate in your life, you will automatically become more vigilant about them. Write down the thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that no longer suit your new life.

Allow yourself to see, in writing, the beliefs that are no longer a part of who you are. Soon, you will no longer have these thoughts, and you will believe the opposite, causing you t manifest your desires quickly.
