Hypnosis Self Help - Questions that are not helpful and Questions to keep Handy.
“We accept many notions because they seem to be the logical answers to our questions. But have we asked the right questions?”
-- Harold L. Klawans
Sometimes we ask questions for which we really don’t want the answer! Nonetheless, when we ask a question, our subconscious minds will get to work to answer us.
Here are some examples of questions we want to avoid:
- What’s wrong with me?
- How long could this take?
- What could go wrong?
- How much trouble could it be?
- How hard could it be?
Asking questions can be empowering – as long as they’re smart questions! “The uncreative mind can spot wrong answers, but it takes a very creative mind to spot wrong questions."
-- Anthony Jay
These types of questions stop you from living your life to its fullest potential before you even get started. Some of you have heard me talk about “Switchwords”. When you hear yourself talking the negative words and questions, be prepared with your “switchword” to change your mind. I use words such a “compassion” and “success” and then I immediately start thinking in a more positive manner.
Smart questions to keep handy
“Quality questions create a quality life. Successful people ask better questions, and as a result, they get better answers.”
-- Anthony Robbins
Questions that are truly empowering –
- Is there a message for me in this experience?
- What’s the gift in this situation?
- What can I learn from this?
- What’s the most loving thing I could do now?
- What’s the most important thing for me to focus on now?
- What would I do if I knew I could not fail?
- What would I do if there were nothing to fear?
“A prudent question is one-half of wisdom.”
-- Francis Bacon
