Have you ever had a moment's peace in your life? When your life seemed to be coasting along nicely? No? What about times when you think all your problems were just about to come to an end, and then something else happened? Did you scratch your head and say “My troubles just NEVER seem to end?” or “If it's not one headache, it's another!” Now here's a different question. Do you bore easily? Do you always like to have a few (100) things going on? Nothing wrong with that. With ten fingers and toes, you can do at least 20 things at once brilliantly. When did you decide that you'd rather problems to solve, than nothing to do? So if you'd like to create more fun things to do in your life, than endless disasters to solve and people to help, ask “What part of this have I created to keep myself entertained?"
Have you ever had something go majorly wrong in life --a disaster? Like frying your $12,000 car engine and having to scrap it for $100? Like failing an interview or exam that was going to make or break your life? Or twisting your ankle in the final of your own Olympic equivalent? What was your disaster? Looking back, was it the disaster you thought it was? Or did it create space for something you had never imagined possible? In fact, what is a disaster? Is it what happens? Or is it how you receive it? So next time something goes wrong, after you catch your breath, smile and ask "What if is better than I can imagine?" Then with no expectation, keep smiling and breathing. At the very least, you'll avoid the stress and frown lines.
You're smart, you work hard, you got good grades at school, you help your family nicely, you've got a great job, everyone says your partner is perfect, you've got enough money, a nice place to live, a sexy car, a few safe investments, and enviable mini breaks and maxi get-aways a few times a year. Your life is perfect. And even if you can only claim one or two of these things, you're doing pretty well, right? So what do you do if you have all these things and yet somehow feel it's not enough? There is nothing wrong with these things. They can certainly be fun! So if you have all of these -- or more -- and you're not having fun, perhaps you've made them mean something they're not? If so, ask “What have I misidentified as living?” What if you could enjoy these things as well as create your life the way you'd like? How? Ask another question.
