Ask a New Question
When going through a change, we immediately begin asking ourselves disempowering questions. For example, when life throws us a challenge, we wonder: “How could this have happened to me?” or “How will I get through this?” Maybe even: “Will I ever feel good again?”
And if it’s a positive change—like a big promotion or a brand-new baby—the questions include “Can I live up to the challenge?” and “Do I have what it takes to succeed?”
Sure, the negative questions are easy. During this change, boost your confidence with a new line of questioning. At first, your mind might react strongly against the new, empowering questions that you ask, but stay strong! Embracing change is a key step toward making change easier.
Today, ask yourself:
- What could be great about this change?
- Who can help me through this change?
- What opportunity has this change brought to me?
- What good things in my life haven’t changed?
Keep these questions in your pocket or purse and turn to them whenever you need a reminder that life is on your side.
