“Why can’t I get that project completed?” Do you ever ask yourself that question? Or how about this statement when you have your self-talk… “I don’t know why I can’t get my marketing done.”
You hear me talk about your “why” and how important it is. Well, in this instance it just might not be the best option for framing your question when you really want to know HOW to get something done.
Clear as mud? Take a look at this short video to see if I make more sense there. (No guarantee!)
If we are stuck on something and really want to move from inaction to action, asking WHY may not be the best solution. When we ask ourself WHY we cannot do something or WHY we do something a certain way, our mind gets busy pulling all of the data for WHY we do or WHY we cannot do.
The solution we are looking for in this type of situation is HOW can I do something. Or possibly, WHAT resources do I have access to that can help me in this situation.
WHY questions provide reasons or clarification And certainly asking yourself WHY you do something is good when you are really wanting to know WHY you do it.
HOW questions provide a method or process to get to the desired result. When your brain searches for HOW to do, it often returns actions or resources to complete the task.
The next time you are stuck, try reframing the self-talk questions and statements. I believe it will make a difference and get you back into action mode quicker.
That’s a wrap for today. I hope you found some value here and that you will share it with your friends and on your social media outlets. There are social share buttons to the left (if you are using a desktop or laptop) and at the bottom (if you are using a mobile device) that are just waiting for you to select your favorite one to two or more.
I am glad that you stopped by today. Remember this:
Believe in yourself.
Do the work.
Will you try reframing the questions that you ask yourself the next time you are stuck? I know you can do it. I believe in you.
See you next time.
