Personal Growth Questions - Achieve Immediate Success By Asking The Right Questions
Are you ready to discover a great way to motivate yourself, keep yourself focused on your goals, and make great decisions?
Try asking yourself the right questions. But we're not talking about just any types questions. We are talking about certain specific questions that are going to get you to where you want to be in life.
Asking yourself questions is a simple yet powerful method to control your mental and emotional focus. When I talk about focus, I am referring to where your attention is at any given moment. When you are controlling your focus, you are making the most productive decisions towards accomplishing your goals.
For example, when you are faced with a challenge that keeps leaving you stuck, if you ask yourself the right questions, this can immediately shift you into a better mental/emotional state. This can create options that might have before, been unavailable to you.
Of course, you have to ask yourself the right questions at the right time. Here are some different examples of questions you can start with, depending on what you are encountering.
Personal Growth Questions - Apply The Following Questions To The Situations In Your Life:
Is this action (whatever you are doing at the time) going to get me to where I want to go?
Does this decision reflect who I am or who I want to be?
Is this what I really want to do or am I letting this person control me?
How much longer am I going to put up with this, settle for this?
What immediate actions can I take to improve myself, my situation?
Is there an event in my past that is triggering my current reaction?
What is a more productive action that I can take?
What opportunities am I missing as a result of this decision, action?
Is the pleasure that I will gain from this worth the pain that I will also get?
Is what I want to achieve from this decision or action going to be what I actually get?
Is there a way I can get the same benefit from another action that does not have the same side effects as this decision or action?
Where do I want to be (financially, intimately, physically, etc.) in 6 months, a year, 5 years, 10 years?
What exact steps do I need to take to get me to where I want to go?
These questions are just a start. Don't be fooled by the simplicity of this approach - there is great power in what we are talking about here. Also, don't be shy about using your own creativity when coming up with new questions.If you are serous about improving your life, print out some of your favorite questions here, one per page and in big bold text. Put them around your home, on your wall, instead of having pictures of people or other pointless decorations as most people do. This will help drill them into your mind, where they become a habit.
Although questions like these are a great tool for personal development, be careful about being over-analytical or over-critical on yourself. This is called "Analysis Paralysis" in many personal growth organizations. What would you get out of that anyway?
