A few years ago, I attended The High Performance Academy given by Brendon Burchard. It was a conference to help individuals be more intentional about their lives and make “How may I serve?” part of every aspect of every day.
The real takeaway that I got out of this 4-day event was the power of asking new questions. If one part of my life isn’t working the way I want, what new question can I ask? For example, if I am struggling with making exercise part of my regular routine, I could ask myself a series of questions to get me thinking in a new direction:
- Why do I resist making exercise part of my everyday life?
- What factors are standing in my way?
- Are my time expectations too high? Could I exercise for 20 minutes instead of the hour that I think that I should?
- Is there another time of day that would work best for me and my family?
- Is there a different type of exercise that I could try and get the results I want?
- Are there people who could support me with this goal?
- Who can I ask for help?
I find that when we ask new questions, we get new answers. We are all creatures of habit. This questioning allows us to think in a new, creative direction.
So, what is an area in your life where you would like to see a change? This week, try some new questions. Allow yourself time to find the different answers, and have fun with this technique.
Have fun designing the life you want!
