10 Questions That Can Change Your Life

Calm Woman

You can learn a lot just by asking yourself a few questions.  Questions direct your attention and make you think.  The questions you ask yourself, or  fail to ask your self, can alter the course of your life!

Consider these questions on a regular basis....

1.  What are the most important things I need to accomplish tomorrow?

When you make the most of each day, you can make the most of your life. Avoid starting a new day without a plan of action.  Give your day some thought the night before.

2.  Which activities and people are a waste of my time?

We all fail to make the most of our time. We have activities that do little more than serve as distractions.  We also have people that are just distractions.  

Think about the activities and people that are costing you more than they are worth. Surround yourself with people that support you. 

3. What are my long term plans? 

What is the overall objective of your life? If you don't know that, you will struggle to plan your time appropriately. You will make wiser decisions if you what your trying to accomplish over the next decade.

Clarify your goals and where you want to be in 10 years. Write it down and refer to it often.

4. What did I do poorly today and how can I do it better tomorrow?

Evaluate your errors and poor decisions and learn from them? Making a mistake once is just part of life. Making a mistake more than once because you didn't learn from is tragic.

5. What did I do well today?

It is just as important to identify what you did well, so you can do it again!

Identifying and feeling good about your victories also build your self confidence, self esteem, and optimistic view of your future, which all make that bright future more likely to happen.

6. How does the rest of the world view me?

This is a very difficult question to answer accurately but its important. Most of us are clueless about how we appear to others.  We have our own vision of ourselves in our mind, but it is often far from the truth. 

If you can see yourself as the rest of the world sees you, you'll identify a few simple tweaks that can change your results dramatically.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

7. What are my values and am I living them?

Most people only have a fuzzy idea of their values.  Once you know what your values are, it is easier to make decisions that sustain and build your self-esteem.

8. What are my greatest flaws and what can I do to correct them?

Everyone has a critical flaw that is holding them back. Few are aware of their most significant flaws.  Spend some time thinking about this and ask some honest friends for their advice.

9. What can I do to enhance my most important relationships? 

Think about how you can lift your relationships to the next level?

10. Who and what am I grateful for?

This is a great question to ask each day, but especially when you are frustrated or down.  Thinking of all the good things in your life will lift you up.
