Hi everyone – Welcome to Day 20 of 21DJC! :) We now have 1 day left till the end of the challenge!

Yesterday’s question was: “What Words Best Describe You?“. (Read the responses.)

Here are some beautiful answers from our participants:

““Honest” and “Jolly” are the two words which describe me the best. Being Honest to myself and to the world gives me a satisfaction from deep inside. :) It really feels great to be Honest. :) As my nature is very jolly, I get mix with everyone….most of them always tells me that “you are a jolly and lovable person”. Obviously being lovable makes me proud of myself. :) ” – Kamal

“This one is easy- my word would be Sunshine Kid, because that is my nickname! There are other words, too like charming, optimistic, smiling, smart-worker! But nothing comes close like my nickname.” – Anu

“Forgiving and unconditional acceptance. I always try to see the soul people rather than what they look like. I tend to read the heart. Creative and eccentric. I want to be memorable, if only to myself.” – Mary Jane Hoover

“Creative. Positive. Imaginative. Caring. Optimistic. Individualistic. Compassionate. Sincere. Thankful. Artistic. Mindful. Honest. Understanding. Loyal. Smart. Original. Thoughtful. Alive. Clean.

“”Restless until its done” are the words that describes me. I am one person that will never go to sleep before i get whatever i have to do, completed. I am like a child that will never stop nagging their parents until they get that new bike they just seen in the window shop.” – A. Sendijja

“I am self critical but becoming kinder to self, shy but friendly, neurotic but great fun, introspective but friendly. […] I am a work in progress and I’m happy with that.” – Lottie

With that said, let’s now move to our 2nd last question for 21DJC!

21DJC Day 20

Today’s question is a precursor to one of the important tasks we are going to work on in the upcoming Live a Better Life in 30 Days Challenge. During next month’s 30DLBL, we will be unearthing the limiting beliefs blocking us in our goals, dissecting them one by one, and working to reverse them into empowering ones.

But for now:

What Limiting Beliefs Are You Holding On To?


Every one of us has limiting beliefs that hold us back from reaching that next level in life. What are yours?

(Today’s question can be found in #65 of 101 Important Questions To Ask Yourself In Life.)

Put on your reflection cap and let your thoughts flow. Below is an empty form which you can use to write your answers to the question. Treat it as your private 21DJC journaling “room”, if you will. You will be seeing this form every day, for the 21 days of the challenge. There’s a button for you to keep track of your word count too, if you’re interested.

(Note you will not see the form below if you’re viewing this in your email client. Visit the actual post online to see the form.)
