Morning Questions: Use the Power of Questions to Change Your Life

Human brain and colorful question markQuality questions create a quality life. They direct our mental focus and therefore determine how we think and feel.

The difference in the quality of people’s lives often comes down to the difference in the questions they consistently ask themselves. If you ask a disempowering question (i.e. “Why does this always happen to me?”), your mental computer will look for an answer, even if it has to make something up! It might come up with “Because you’re stupid” or “Because you don’t deserve to do well anyway.”

On the flip side, if you ask an empowering question, such as “How can I take this experience and use it to contribute to others?” your brain will look for answers to this question and often come up with an answer that not only makes you feel better, but that can help others as well.

The key is to develop a pattern of questions that empower you. The following questions are designed to help you experience more happiness, excitement, pride, gratitude, joy, commitment and love every day of your life. Come up with two or three answers for each of these questions. If you have difficulty, simply replace “am I” with the words “could I be.” For example, “What could I be happy about in my life right now?”

1. What am I most happy about in my life now? What about that makes me happy? How does that make me feel?

2. What am I most excited about in my life now? What about that makes me excited? How does that make me feel?

3. What am I most proud about in my life now? What about that makes me proud? How does that make me feel?

4. What am I most grateful about in my life now? What about that makes me grateful? How does that make me feel?

5. What am I enjoying most in my life right now? What about that do I enjoy? How does that make me feel?

6. What am I committed to in my life right now? What about that makes me committed? How does that make me feel?

7. Who do I love? Who loves me? What about that makes me loving? How does that make me feel?

If you really want to create a shift in your life, make this a part of your daily ritual. By consistently asking these questions, you’ll find that you access your most empowering emotional states on a regular basis, and you’ll begin to create mental highways to happiness, excitement, pride, gratitude, joy, commitment and love.

  5. Great article. It is so important to focus our energies on what we desire, as opposed to what we don’t. We attract what we focus on, it is as simple as that.

  7. I can speak from experience, because I’ve been using these exact questions from Personal Power 2, the driving force in addition to my morning power-walks for the last few months. This method has helped me focus on what makes me feel outstanding and when I combined it with some exercise, really helped boost the experience of emotion. Feels great to wake up everyday when you focus on gratitude, instead of focusing on lack.
