What’s wrong with me?
Why can’t I do this?
Why is this so hard?
These questions lead you to beat yourself up.
They keep you stuck.
They don’t feel good.
They aren’t useful.
They make you feel hopeless.
Notice the difference in how you feel when you ask yourself these questions instead:
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 lead you to be curious.
They 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.
