Ask Yourself Why
Do you ever stop and question why you do what you do? Most of us don't. Today, I want to encourage you to take a moment and ask yourself "why?"
1. Complete the sentence below by filling in what is true for you:
Why do I think I need _________ to be happy?
an "important job", a romantic relationship, to always be busy doing something, money, a big home, praise, approval, a fancy car, to always win, to put others down who have other opinions, to climb the corporate ladder, to look a certain way, to have the latest technology, etc.
2. Answer this question:
What would happen if I would allow myself to feel good about myself and my life right now without having what I think is missing?
3. Start writing the answers. Stop. Give it some time (maybe a few days, maybe a week or so) and then come back to it. Write some more. Even if you don't know the answer, just start writing and see what happens.
