Important Questions For Examining Personal Problems

Today’s post continues with the aim to inspire you to take control of the direction of your life, one step at a time, which slowly but surely aids us to automatically refocus our activities and small decisions in everyday life, which then will pull in the same direction creating momentum.

Last weeks’ exercises were about finding out what you would like to change by first identifying possible problems to be solved. When we define the problems correctly, the solutions are often visible and fairly given.

Look at your list of problems. For each of them, try to become more detailed by thinking about how you feel when you are in a situation where the problem is present– for example in a situation where you feel uncomfortable, like making a speech.

Then consider:

What were you thinking about right before? About you? About others?

How would you label those thoughts: negative, critical, self-attacking, agitated?

What’s the worst with the situation? What is the disaster you are trying to avoid?

Are you afraid of something: afraid of dying/showing insecurity, what people will think of you, being discovered/incompetent/a bluff, losing your job?

What do you miss when being in that situation? Pride? Independence? Courage?

More about this exercise next week.
