What’s on your bookshelf?
Do you have a reading list for the year? Do you have books that you’ve purchased that are lined up and in the cue to read? What are you currently reading? Is it an easy read to embrace after the holidays and to get through the depths of winter or a book that takes a little more thought and attention?
I’m currently reading, “Awaken the Giant Within,” by Tony Robbins. This book is about taking immediate control of your mental, emotional, physical and financial destiny. It’s about changing your mindset through the questions we ask ourselves, changing our limiting beliefs and adapting new ways that create new pathways and opportunities for success.
One of Tony’s big concepts in this book is: our questions determine our thoughts. “If you ask a terrible question, you’ll get a terrible answer. Your mental computer is ever ready to serve you, and whatever questions you give it, it will surely come up with an answer.”
If you consistently ask yourself, “why can’t I succeed?” Your mind will consistently come up with an answer about why you can’t succeed. If you shift the question to, “how can I use this result as momentum to move forward?” Your mind will come up with an answer. The difference between the answers is one that is limiting versus one that presents opportunity.
“Quality questions create quality life.” What sort of questions are you consistently asking yourself? Change your questions and change your life.
I recommend adding this book to your reading list, it can be life changing if you allow it.
