How Quality Questions Can Change the Quality of Your Life.
Remember, it’s not the events of your life that determine how you feel and act but, rather, the meaning you create from your life’s experiences. Learning to ask empowering questions- especially in moments of crisis- is a critical skill that will ultimately shape the meanings you create, and therefore the quality of your life. – Anthony Robbins.
I love Tony’s words about asking powerful questions during tough times. I learned it through journaling.
But.. what are the differences between empowering and disempowering questions?
“Why is it always happening to me?”
“Why am I so unlucky?”
Are these questions empowering?
No! It takes you only on the path to self-pity road.
Now, what about the following questions?
“What can I learn from this experience?”
“What is the pattern I am repeating over and over?”
“How can I do this differently to come up with a better outcome?”
Do you see the difference already?
It’s all about the perception of your mind.
By training yourself to ask empowering questions, regardless of the circumstances, you will be able to redirect your focus on new possibilities and solutions instead of feeling sorry for yourself and creating more of what you don’t want.
