"As a coach, I often ask certain questions which help my clients figure out what they deeply want in life and the best way to get it.”
Below are a few of the questions I often ask. I'm sharing them with you so that you could ask yourself these questions. I have seen people answer these questions and dramatically improve their lives. When we reach deep into ourselves and discover our true passions in life, we become healthier, happier people who make better choices in all aspects of our lives, and therefore have more fulfilling lives.
See what your answers are and how you can use those answers to discover more fully what you want out of this life.
What effect do you want to have on the world?
Your existence is going to have an effect on the world so it’s important to think about what effect you want that to be. Do you want to create a beautiful family, cure a disease, or help others in need? If your answers are unclear, I recommend you ask yourself this question every day until you start seeing a more pronounced picture of where you want your journey to take you.
Why are you spending your time worrying?
Worrying is essentially fear and anxiety about a hypothetical event that could occur. You have little, if any, control over the result. Worrying about hypothetical events ruins your happiness and distracts you from doing what is truly in your best interest. To stop worrying, I encourage you to instead think about what you are grateful for and do not stop until you start silencing the worries and doubts in your head. Make a gratitude list and every day list three to five things that you are grateful for in that moment. This takes the focus off of your anxieties and puts your energy onto positive thoughts, which in turn, can reduce your anxiety.
Is that really going to keep you safe?
Life can be unpredictable. The best way to cope with this fact is to develop the courage to go for what you truly want while having the faith that you will be able to do whatever you need to do when the time arises. Belief in your own abilities is key in releasing the fears and moving forward with your life. We may not be able to control the environment around us, but we can control our reaction to it.
Are your thoughts helping you or hurting you?
Your level of happiness at any given moment is determined by your thoughts. If you create a miserable story, then you will suffer in silence. If you create a positive story which focuses on gratitude, then you will feel more joy in your day to day life. I start every morning by telling myself that today I will choose joy, balance and peace as the foundation for my day. I suggest you always choose the thoughts that will help you live the life you want, and reject any thoughts that do not serve you.
I hope that after you ask yourself these questions, you've learned a little more about yourself. I'd love to hear how asking yourself questions change the outlook you have about yourself. Please feel free to share them with me and the readers of twoday.
