The Ultimate Question

It is not the answer that enlightens, but the question. ~ Decouvertes
Good questions outrank easy answers. ~ Paul A. Samuelson

Because questions have the power to direct you, it is important to ask a question that sends you in the right direction.
The right kind of question, or a ‘good’ question, can lead you to success vs. the wrong kind of question, or ‘bad’ question that can send you spinning into the abyss, the black hole -as it were.
Whatever question you might toss at your brain, it will answer. Your brain is hardwired to seek an answer, even if your answer is “I don’t know.”
Some questions have a bias toward the negative – i.e. “Why do I always fail?” When asked this type of question, your brain is likely to seek out past experiences that support the idea that you do always fail and your brain may even take it a step farther and deem you ‘a failure.’ In addition, the question implies that you always ‘fail,’ which is of course not true.
A better question to ask could be, “What can I do to move forward?” Or – “How can I better create success?” Both questions are a catalyst that can help you move toward your compelling future.
You can now see that you are in control of your brain; in control of your thoughts. It’s really quite simple (not easy – but simple). All you need to do is start listening to your thoughts, and when you hear a question that tends toward the negative, use your veto power and ask something positive!
If you want to permanently remove your excess weight, or – for that matter – to succeed in anything, then you need to ask yourself questions that empower you rather than limit!

Live your questions now, and perhaps even without knowing it, you will live along some distant day into your answers. ~ Rainer Maria Rilke

    You are so right! I love that you say this. I haven’t really thought about the questions we ask, but I do always ask myself – “why aren’t I losing weight?” instead of asking what I can do to further my goals. Thanks for the insight!
