What’s wrong with me?
Why can’t I have just 1 drink?
Why can’t I lose the weight?
Why can’t I do this?
Why is this so hard?
These questions will lead you to beat yourself up.
They will keep you stuck.
They don’t feel good.
They aren’t useful.
They make you hopeless.
But you’ve probably been asking them if you’ve been struggling to change a habit.
Notice the difference in how you feel when you ask yourself powerful questions:
What steps do I need to take to achieve my goal?
What evidence do I have that I can do hard things?
How will my life improve when I do this?
How can I make this easier?
These questions are productive.
They’ll lead you to be curious.
They’ll help you feel hopeful.
Pay attention to the questions you ask yourself.
Make a conscious effort to ask yourself questions that lead your brain in a positive direction.
Notice how this changes improves how you feel & what you do.
You got this.
