How excited are you about your life?
Is there anything you want to change? Would finding what else is possible change your life for the better?
Tony Robbins says, If you want better answers, ask better questions!
So what kinds of questions do you usually ask yourself?
Have you ever heard things in your head like:
- Why can’t I get what I want?
- Why am I alone?
- Why can’t I make the amount of money I dream of?
- Why can’t I lose weight?
- Why do my partner relationships always go bad?
What’s wrong with asking those kinds of questions?
For one thing, asking Why questions just lead you back to your ‘story’ – they keep you locked into what you perceive as your limitations or failures.
So what if you asked questions that lead you to your strengths and your successes?
The new science demonstrates that where your attention goes, energy flows. In other words, what you focus on expands in your life.
So if you put your attention on what you don’t have, or what you have but don’t want – you only increase the probability of getting more of what you don’t want and on your sense of lack.
So that means it is time for a Shift in your thinking:
First – change your Why questions to How or What questions:
How can I get more of what I want?
What do I want instead of what I have?
Second – get clarity on what you really want:
What do you truly want – is it money, or what the money can possibly bring you?
When you focus on the true end-result you will find it much easier to see the path to that outcome.
Third – live your outcome in advance, with gratitude:
Neurons that fire together, wire together. So as you keep your attention and your intention focused on what you want instead of what you have and begin to picture the outcome in advance, then your neurology, biology and biochemistry begin to ‘lock-in’ what you are creating in your DNA and in your life.
What questions do you want to start asking yourself?
- What am I looking forward to today?
- What am I most grateful for in my life?
- How does it get any better than this?
- What else is possible?
The life you are living is your Journey.
So don’t substitute anyone else’s idea of joy or success, or possibility for your own inner knowledge.
You already know what you want in your life and how you want to live it, and if you think you don’t know – take a moment and think about what that would be if you did know – you’ll be surprised at what you discover.
Enjoy your Journey of Discovery!
