Do you like routine? Is that what you strive to achieve? Something comfortable, known, and secure? How often do you say “Once I get a system, everything will be better”? There's nothing wrong with comfortable, known and routine, when everything in your life is even better than you could imagine. When something is not working the way you'd like, will “comfortable, known or routine” create the changes you desire? Or will they set in concrete what's not working? If you're looking for dynamic change, ask “What could I be or do different today that would help create the life, living and reality I'd really like?” Then notice what comes to mind and be or do that. “Different” is not the same as “differently.” Differently is doing the same thing in different ways. Different is outside anything you have ever considered. What have you not yet imagined that, if you chose it, would contribute to your life? Don't know? Just ask.
Have you been asking questions but things don't seem to be changing in the way you'd hoped? What sort of questions are you asking? Do they sound like this “What's it going to take for my red BMW sportscar/a young, blond, sexy date to show up?” or “What's it going to take for me to get a job where people recognize my worth?” Are these really questions? Or are they conclusions with question marks attached? In other words, you've decided what you want (red BMW sportscar/young, blond, sexy date) and that without a particular job you have no worth. So if you're not getting the change you'd truly like, check your questions. Ask “Is this a question or a statement with a question mark attached?” Ten ask a real question.
These are my all time favorite questions. Do they work? Play with them and see what else you can create in your life.
How does it get any better than this?®
Ask for a greater outcome than you could possibly imagine. Are things bad? They can certainly improve. Are things good? They can always get better.
How did I get so lucky?
When the good stuff shows up in your life, this is a great way to express your thanks and to invite more of it your way.
What else is possible?®
When everything seems to be “no” ask “OK, got it. What else is possible?” It's amazing what people will reply when you ask.
What's right about this that I'm not getting?
What if there was nothing wrong with anything? What if there was only another possibility? Would your life be easier and more fun? What's the value of looking for the wrong in things anyway?
What's right about me that I'm not getting?
Just because people don't get you, that doesn't make you wrong. What if there was nothing wrong with you? What if you were just different?
Can I change this? If so, how?
Sometimes things won't change no matter what you do. This question helps you see you can step around, walk away, dig under or fy over the brick wall, rather than keep banging your head against it.
