What Are You Asking Yourself?

Don't act like you don't know what I am talking about - you hear hear voices.....

OK, maybe you don't listen to the voices - but you hear them. And they make a lot of statements.

It's easy to dispel a negative statement - most of us get them from time to time. I hope that you have learned that the negative voice in your head is merely your ego trying to stay in control and stop you from making any changes.....changes that could improve your life....and threaten the ego's rule over the house.

It's a bit trickier to head off a negative question - "why can't I make things work out right?" OK... when it is laid out in writing, you can see that it's a question that lacks much juice.....not a lot of empowerment going on there. The voice in your head is audible...or things are a little more subtle. Read that question without a lot of passion or judgment. Go it.

If you have done it as your mind probably states it - it almost sounds helpful. The issue is in the quality of the question. Let's try this on for size....

"What can I do to make this work?" - whoa! News at eleven! Did you see that? Contrast the two'll do it for you:

Why can't I make things work out right? VS What can I do to make this work?

Same basic question - my suspicion is that the quality of question that you are batting around all day could use a bit of upgrading.

The quality of the questions - that you ask yourself will determine how your life goes. Your actions, or lackthereof, are all in response to the questions that go through your mind.

ONLY ask EMPOWERING questions
- and watch things start happening for the better

Today's ACTION - the voice in your head. Capture the questions that it raises. Write them down. Then, rewrite them in a manner that could move you forward rather than keeping you at a standstill or going backward.
