5 Questions Pivotal to Personal Development
When you find yourself in a rut, push past the usual solutions and ask thought-provoking questions to uncover new possibilities. Reflection is an invaluable tool; it can help unearth answers that were previously hidden or beyond your understanding. Dive into self-inquiry for greater clarity on where to focus your efforts next - this restorative practice will grant insights that could revolutionize how you approach complex problems! Ask yourself the questions that matter the most:
1. How do I sabotage myself? We all sabotage ourselves, talk ourselves out of things that would lead to success and happiness and procrastinate. We compare ourselves harshly to others.
· Make a list of the ways you’ve sabotaged yourself in the past. Be on the lookout for these same patterns in the future.
2. How can I use more of the helpful knowledge and skills I already have? In today’s world, we know more than we ever have. The average person knows enough to make a million dollars, have the body of a Greek god or goddess, and marry a supermodel. Why don’t you use all the great things you already know?
· Consider all the things you know about diet and exercise. Do you apply that knowledge?
· How much do you know about saving and investing for the future? What can you do to brighten your financial outlook?
· How much do you know about relationships? Are you taking full advantage of that information? Why not?
· Imagine what your life would look like if you applied everything you already know. Most people are convinced they do not know enough; in reality, they just don’t perform the actions they know to be effective or avoid counterproductive actions.
· Make a list of everything you do that you know you shouldn’t. Then make a list of everything you fail to do, but know that you should.
People are anxious to improve their circumstances, but are unwilling to improve themselves; they therefore remain bound. - James Allen
3. What can I control? What can I not control? We spend far too much time worrying about things that cannot be controlled. We spend too little time effectively managing those things within our control realm.
