#1 What things and habits are holding you back?
Whether it’s destructive habits or thoughts, asking this question helps you realize which things are limiting you from achieving your full potential.
Maybe you like to snooze instead of getting up early to work on your side hustle.
Maybe you stay up to late so you’re tired the next day.
Maybe you just can’t say no.
By asking yourself this profound question, you’re giving yourself the clarity needed to change your life.
Your habits and thoughts can drastically make or break the outcome of your life. This is exactly the reason why you need to be careful what habits and thoughts you allow into your life.
A lot of people are hold back by their negative thoughts.
They end up feeling sorry for themselves instead of trying to be better.
Don’t let this be you!
#2 What does your ideal life look like?
I know that none of us just magically end up living our ideal lives,…
But you need to ask yourself what life would make you proud.
If you call 100% of the shots, how would you like your life to turn up?
Take a few minutes to get a very detailed answer.
- Where would you life?
- How much money do you need?
- How does your usual day look?
- Who’s with you?
- When would you wake up?
By answering these questions, you’d know what it is you really want.
Whether it’s the career you want, the kind of relationship you want, or the car you want to drive this question clarifies your goals and dreams in life.
Whatever you see yourself happily doing in the future, then that’s what you want.
Now you’re able to reverse engineer this life and go after it.
#3 What are your core mindsets?
Your mindsets define the success of how your life is going to be.
You need to identify whether your core mindsets align with your goals and accomplishments.
Otherwise, this is going to hold you back.
The mindset that your past is always going to define you is a limiting mindset.
You can’t have mindsets focused on negativity or things you can’t change, but rather, you need a mindset that encourages and motivates you to move forward.
Positive affirmations are a good way to improve your mindset!
#4 How do you deal with setbacks and challenges?
No matter how much you try, you can’t always get what you want.
The real potential lies in how much grace you have in dealing when pain and struggle is present in your life.
Do you deal with it with maturity and understanding?
Or, do you let your emotions get the best of you and lash out your anger and frustration unto the world?
Change is inevitable and things don’t always go smoothly, but you need to be able to be strong enough to deal with setbacks when they occur.
It goes back to your mindset.
Try to see “failure” for what it is, a chance to learn.
“Failure is instructive. The person who really thinks learns quite as much from his failures as from his successes.” ―
#5 How do you perceive yourself?
This may not seem significant, but how you see yourself can determine how you accomplish your goals.
If you don’t see potential and greatness in yourself, how do you expect to accomplish the things you want?
However, if you perceive yourself to be someone positive, someone determined, or someone passionate, you’ll be even more encouraged to go after your life.
If you see yourself as this enthusiastic, optimistic individual who has so much passion for writing, this will eventually motivate you to go after that passion and this becomes a life-changer for you.
Something to keep in mind…
Everyone has different phases in their lives, and not all grow in similar phases.
You could be in a phase where you’re focusing on your career, or you could be struggling to find yourself.
This is important because you need to trust yourself and the current season of your life. Even if things may not make sense, trust yourself enough that you’re growing in your own distinct way.
By asking yourself these 5 deep questions, you might get motivated to turn your life around and make essential changes to live a purposeful life.
Through these questions, you gain a more in-depth and more precise perspective on who you are and what you want to achieve in this life.
