“Why am I doing so well?”. Joanna from our mastermind group is beaming. “I’ve been saying this to myself over and over for days. And it works. I find reasons why I’m fine.” I smile back and write it down straight away.
“Why am I doing so well?”. You can ask yourself this question every day. For what reason? Because our brain works like Google. A question generates thousands of answers. In the case of the brain, thousands of experiences that you have already had come to that phrase. So, if you’re asking questions like “Why do I feel so bad?” your brain finds answers just like “Why do I feel so good?”.
It’s so important to always think positively
When we think positively, our brain finds answers that fit that question. For example, if you’re feeling down and keep asking yourself, “Why do I feel so bad?” your brain will come up with reasons that support that feeling. Maybe you remember a time when you failed, or someone said something mean to you. And some of it may not be true at all, but you thought that the others didn’t like you, for example.
On the other hand, if you’re feeling good and you’re asking yourself, “Why am I feeling so good?” your brain will also find reasons to support that feeling. Maybe then you’ll remember a time when you were successful, or someone said something nice to you. That’s why it’s so important to always think positively and ask yourself positive questions, even if you’re not doing so well at this very moment. Here are three more reasons why you want to ask youself positive questions:
It feels good!
It’s good for your health!
It attracts more good things into your life!
The next time you catch yourself having a negative thought, turn it around and ask yourself a positive question instead. “Why am I feeling so good?” is a good starting point.
Have fun doing it.
