Don’t like the answer?

Ask a different question!

As Tony Robbins says, “If you don’t like the answers you are getting, ask a better question!”

We ask. We answer.

You may not realize it but we humans are asking questions all day long.

What time is it? Where did I put the coffee scoop? How could I be so stupid? Should I wear the blue blouse or the green one? Why am I so fat? Why am I always broke?

Some questions are very practical and useful and lead to answers. You find the coffee scoop. You pick a shirt to wear. Problem solved.

But we also have the habit of asking questions that undercut our best lives. For example,

If you ask yourself, “Why can’t I lose weight?” The answer might be something like, “Because you eat too much!” However if you ask yourself, “How can I lose weight and get fit and have a great time doing it, you have put your mind to work on a problem it can solve.” See the difference?

Ask a better question

When facing adversity…

Instead of: “Why did this happen to me?”

Try asking: “How can I use this experience to grow?” and “How can I come through this as a more loving, stronger human being?”

Instead of: “What am I going to do with these kids home 24 / 7?

Try asking,” How can I use this time to build a stronger, happier family and have a lot of fun doing it?”

Instead of: “What if my business goes under?”

Try asking: “How can I use my business, influence or power to be of service in making sure we all have what we need?”
