How you communicate with yourself is causing your life
The questions you’re asking yourself are causing your life.
Are they empowering you or disempowering you?
A person’s life will always reflect their inner beliefs about themself and the world and the questions you ask yourself on a daily basis is what directs the flow of your life.
It’s a choice whether you see the glass “half empty” or “half full”.
Optimism (half full) or pessimism (half empty) are choices that are based on the individual’s worldview.
A worldview or perspective can be changed though by guarding your mind and realizing that you’re in charge of it.
Your beliefs will always determine your actions so whatever you believe and say to yourself, that’s the direction you’re giving your mind.
Are you giving your mind the right directive so that it can help you take the right actions?
Instead of asking “why do this always happen to me?”, “what else can go wrong?”, “how much worse can it get?” and so on, start focusing your mind in a different direction.
It always goes where you ‘tell’ it to go, and the way you tell it is by how you choose to focus your attention and how you communicate with yourself.
If you ask “how much worse can it get?” the mind will find answers to that questions for you because it thinks that since you think those thoughts, that’s what you must want.
So begin asking empowering questions instead.
First, look around you and see all the things that are good in your life, things that are working for you.
It can be anything, it doesn’t matter, just get connected with something that lifts your spirit up.
The feeling gratitude is something you can always connect to, and once you’re connected to it, ask yourself questions like:
“How much better than this can it get?”, “how can I be even happier?” and “how much more blessed can I possibly be?” and so on and you mind will begin finding the answers to those questions as well.
WE decide where to focus our attention, and we DECIDE how to interpret events and how we decide to look at things is what determines the outcomes in our lives.
The truth is that we can create anything we want so why not choose to create well-being and things that you actually want more of in your life?
If you always focus on what you don’t want, then that’s what you will continue to get.
But if you shift your focus and begin seeing what is awesome and good in the present, the more awesome and great your future is going to be as well.
Your happiness and joy causes your life, not only in the present moment (as you can’t feel frustrated/fearful and gratitude/love at the same time), but it also causes your future as you choose to ride the wave of positivity and optimism.
And it’s not about denial and pretending that challenges don’t exist, it’s about tackling and meeting them from a perspective that is self-empowering and uplifting.
It all comes down to one thing really: How your inner talk is and the questions you ask yourself.
Here’s an old article with an audio that I created some years ago with empowering questions you can ask yourself:
I’d suggest you write the questions down after you’ve listened to them and then reflect deeply on them and journal about them as well for best results.
