Are you asking empowering questions?

I’ve been watching Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday and her interview with Dr. Michael Bernard Beckwith. Michael says that when we’re going through a difficult situation we ask disempowering questions like: What’s wrong? Who’s to blame? Why me?

Michael invites us instead, to ask inspiring questions like:

  • What’s trying to emerge in my life?
  • What is my gift to share?
  • Why am I here on the planet?

I’m always changing and evolving and I try to learn at least one new thing every day.  I developed a checklist with questions to ask myself at the end of the day to see if I have succeeded in my goal:

  • Did you learn something new today?
  • Did you express your creativity today?
  • Did you smile often? Did you laugh?
  • Did you find moments of unexpected joy?
  • Did you stop and appreciate the little moments?
  • Did you take one small step towards the big picture?

Are you asking empowering questions?
