Questions Create Reality
Three Questions You Can Ask to Gain More Positivity and Success in Life
By Debbie Lyn Toomey, RN Health and Happiness Specialist™
“Be careful what you ask for.”
“Ask and you shall receive.”
“The answer is in the questions.”
These sayings are so true. We have to be mindful of our thoughts and the words we use in our questions because they will create our reality.
Let me explain. Have you ever stopped to think about the kind of questions that you ask? Do they focus on the negative or the positive? Questions that asks for more negative answers will give you more negativity. On the other hand, questions that seeks positive answers reveal positivity.
This happens because our mind is obedient. It will find the answers to the questions that we pose. By asking what else can go wrong, our brain will scan for other events or things that can go badly. But if we ask what else do we have to work with or how can we improve on this, our brain will find ways to help rise above the situation.
One of the best things I learned while studying Positive Psychology is how important it is to focus on the good – especially when asking questions. Positive Psychology is the science of happiness and also the science of optimum human performance and flourishing. Those who practice Positive Psychology learn what is working and create practices that cultivate growth and greatness. Positive Psychologists ask what is right instead of what is wrong. It is from asking these simple yet powerful questions that the skills of happiness, resilience, and success were discovered.
Next time you ask a question of yourself or others, pause for a second and think about the real outcome that you want. Once you tune into it, pose your question in a positive way so that you will create the reality that you are looking for.
Here are three questions you can ask to gain more positivity and success into your life. They are:
“What went well?”
“What can we learn from this?”
“What is right in this moment?”
I invite you to try asking these questions during the day and notice all the goodness that emerges as the result of this simple, yet powerful exercise. Enjoy reaping all the benefits that will be coming your way.
