WE humans love to talk. Well, not all of us but many of us. Talking and asking questions, all the time, sometimes all day long. We have a word for it, it’s called communicating. Some people are very good at it and they inspire others who are listening. So saying something, asking questions, listening… all this is part of our human communication.
Where is all this leading to you may ask yourself. Well, I would like to talk to you about asking ‘the right’ questions.
We can discuss for days and weeks what talking is all about, even the question part.
But for now let us stick to the power of asking the right questions. And in particular, that enormous power of asking the right questions of ‘yourself.’
Why do I want to write about this? Because far too many people, including myself at times, are asking ourselves the wrong questions.
‘The quality of our lives is closely related to the quality of our questions’ – a quote from Michael Angier.
Remember that every question we ask ourselves, our brain will always respond to it accordingly. Let me give you some examples of questions we should not ask ourselves from now on.
Many things in our lives happen to us all the time, good and not so good, and we tend to ask questions like ‘What am I doing wrong this time?’ or ‘Why do those things always happen to me?’ or ‘Why can I not like myself for who I am?’ or even ‘What is wrong with me?’
Have a closer look over the next few days at the questions you are beating yourself up with. Most of them have a negative feeling about them.
Your brain will always give you answers. Only if you ask questions in a much more positive way, will your brain give you more positive answers.
So future questions could be like ‘I made a mistake, I am open for a positive change, what can I learn from it?’ or ‘Why do I deserve all these wonderful things in my life?’ or ‘What is good about myself?’ or ‘What can I do to like myself much more?’ or ‘How can I make this day a great day?’
These questions are far more powerful put in a positive way and they will help your brain get used to this new positive way of thinking, which is always a good thing.
Just give it a try. It works, believe me. Enjoy your powerful positive questions.
