Have you spent a few moments, hours, days, weeks or even years walking around thinking you were bad, wrong, no-good or hopeless? Were you locked into an endless downward spiral of unhappiness or sense of failure or boredom? Was that fun for you? If not and you'd like to change it, ask "What if I stopped and asked a question?" What question? It doesn't matter. Your simple choice to STOP creates a space for a new possibility to show up. Coupled with a question, any question, the possibilities suddenly become infinite. Are you willing to stop, breathe, question and smell the roses?
I am very sorry if I miss a Daily Q every now and then. I aim to write and publish every day and sometimes life simply gets in the way :)
Do you know any mean people? They exist, even if you don't want to see them. When you do see someone who is mean, do you immediately list all the reasons for why? Bad childhood, bad break-up, bad workplace. What other justifications do you find? Are these reasons and justifications true? What about people who have been horribly abused as kids, who as adults are extraordinarily caring people? And those who had comparatively nice childhoods, who as adults are just plain mean? Know any people like this? What if being mean, or kind, was just a choice available to anyone to choose, at any time? So if you'd like to free yourself from the effect of meanness, and contribute more kindness to the world, ask "What if being mean was just a choice?" What would you choose today? What if kindness changed the world? What if YOUR kindness changed the world?
Thanks to Dr Dain Heer for this one. Like to hear him talk about it? A video just for you here http://youtu.be/oMhJvDVcnok
What in your life is consistently "going wrong"? Have you asked someone to deliver something to you each week after a particular time, but they always turn up three hours early when you're not there? Are your point of sale records and till drawer always slightly out? Are your fuses always blowing? Are staff often turning up late, or not at all? How do you react? By sigh and patching things up to get by? Do you stress and scream? Do do you ignore it? Or are you in a constant state of slight irritation? If you'd like to disappear such "goings wrong"and create greater ease in your business, ask "What about this requires my attention?" And then attend to whatever shows up.
