What is your mind doing all day long when you are doing what you do?
It is very common to find yourself asking yourself questions, which is a very powerful personal growth tool that you should be using.
If that is, if you want to discover ways to improve your life and reduce your stress and anxiety.
But, many times the questions that you are asking yourself are more of the negative vein.
Why does this always happen to me?
What is wrong with me?
Why don’t they like me?
Why is it always so hard for me?
Why can’t I always screw up?
Why do they do this to me?
Now, can see that these seem innocent enough, but they are actually very damaging if you persist with this line of questioning.
It is actually a form of complaining.
When you continuously repeat those kinds of questions you are just reinforcing what you don’t want.
These are actually negative affirmations that you are hammering in to your mind.
There is a way to reverse this negative thought bombardment on your mind.
You need to become aware of your mind chatter and what you say to yourself all day long.
This way you will catch these innocent questions early before repeating them for a time.
Now these are natural questions that come up when you are in certain situations, this is natural.
But the trick is to quickly flop them around to an opposite positive statement of something you do want.
Then when you say this positive statement or question you are actually seeking a solution based response from your inner self and the universe.
What can I do to help them to like me?
What is the best way to do this?
What can I do to do this well?
What outcome do I want with this?
How can I get the outcome I want?
What can I do right now to change the way I think about this?
Of course you can get more specific to the situation at hand.
Flipping a negative question is easy, just rewrite it based on what you want.
With any thing you don’t want, like, have, feel or do – you can then look to its opposite – what you do want.
That is what you should be keeping your mind on.
Your subconscious and the universe responds to your thoughts.
Take command of your thoughts and guide your life experience to how you want it.
“Whatever commands our time, energy and resources, commands
us.” — Tom Sine
“He who cannot command himself should obey. And many can command themselves, but much is still lacking before they can obey themselves.” — Friedrich Nietzsche
“The answers you receive
depend upon the questions you ask.” — Thomas Kuhn
“Great minds ask great questions.” — Michael Gelb
“If we would have new knowledge, we must get a whole world
of new questions.” — Susanne K. Langer
“Every clarification breeds new questions.” — Arthur Bloch
“The word question is derived from the Latin quarrier (to seek)
which is the same root as the word for quest. A creative life is
a continued quest, and good questions can be very useful guides.
Most useful are open-ended questions; they allow for fresh
unanticipated answers to reveal themselves.” — Source Unknown
“Asking the proper question is the central action of
transformation… Questions are the key that cause the secret
doors of the psyche to swing open.” — Clarissa Pinkola Estes
