In those first moments when you wake up sometimes your mind is thinking about those things that are going to make today hell..O. I believe it’s Tony Robbins who says “The quality of your life is the quality of the questions you ask yourself daily”. So asking quality questions upon waking and before sleeping is one of the most powerful ways to enhance the good emotions in your life. Making it a daily ritual before sleep and when you awake will provide great rewards when done right. Here’s what you’ll need:
1. A brain, a memory. Chose 3 of the questions below or if you’re really wild do the whole list. Memorize them or put them on a note card, or make a note in your phone, or a note where ever it is that you make your notes. Have it by your bedside so that you can easily reach it for morning or evening reference.
2. Honesty. When you ask yourself these questions go with the answer that makes you feel. It can be tricky sometimes our mind will say something logical, for example: “What am I grateful for about today?” and our mind has answered this question for the past week so it goes to a canned answer like “My home”. Now one could continue with this answer or really get keyed in to what it really is that one is Really grateful for like “My amazing relationship”. So be aware of this when answering the questions and be honest with yourself. It pays off, trust me.
3. Persistence. They say it takes 21 days of doing something daily/consistently for it to truly become a habit. So stick with it, put an alarm on your phone to remind you to ask your questions and soon enough you won’t need the reminder anymore!
Here are the questions. Each one is composed of three parts, the question and then two sub questions that get your emotions involved. If you are stumped for an answer add the word “could” for example: “What could I be most happy about in my life now?”. Also these questions are not limited to morning and evening, they can be asked at anytime! I recommend saying the questions out loud if you can, I believe somehow it magnifies the results when you both hear it and think it.
