This blog is for anyone who feels like they’re failing at something right now.
Is that you? OK, good.
Let’s say you’re trying to get in shape. I’m gonna guess that whenever you “mess up” you ask yourself a question like ‘Why can’t I stick to a diet?’.
Or, let’s say you’ve got an ambitious goal for your business. But every time you encounter a barrier or roadblock, you think “Why can’t I ever get this right?”.
If that’s you, there’s something I want you to do right now:
You need to change the question you’re asking yourself.
This is something I talk about a LOT in my online mindset coaching course School of Champions: if you ask better questions, you’ll get better answers!
What if instead of ‘Why can’t I stick to a diet?” you asked yourself “How can I lose weight and enjoy the process?”.
Or in that business scenario, what if instead of “Why can’t I ever get this right?”, you asked “How can I learn from this mistake?”.
Ready to give it a go?
Think about something you’re working on improving right now.
Now, try to identify the question you ask yourself when things go awry.
What is a different question you can ask?
And, how can you remind yourself to ask this question? Can you put reminders in your phone? Write your new question on your fridge or bathroom mirror? Write it on post-its and pop them in places you’ll see every day.
Part of successful growth is understanding that there are a hundred ways to reach the same goal. Finding the path that works for you will happen when you ask yourself better questions. – Tweet it!
That’s it for this week.
Make sure you check out next week’s letter (you can sign up to receive them here), because it’s gonna contain an invitation for you to join something new I’ve been working on. You’re gonna love it, if I do say so myself!
PS – Thinking about doing the City 2 Surf? Well, Success Resources Australia and I are putting together a team to take it on!
