10 Questions To Ask Yourself
By Pat Brill

Are you content with your life the ways
things are? Or are you seeking more
insight and understanding around
what is important to you?

Do you allow yourself to play with
the thought that there is something
deeper and more meaningful for you to express in this lifetime?

We all are faced with problems and sometimes they are all we seem to have.  We have
left behind our ability to dream, yet that ability still lives within us, even if we block it
with our 'to do' lists.

Are you open to just asking the questions?

1.   What do I want?

The question of the ages.  So many things you want to do with your life and yet you
feel there is so little time to add them to your day.  Create a "101 Things I Want" List.  
Once a week, take out the list and read about what you want.  Don't worry about doing
everything...just create the list and read it once a week.

Then take small steps towards incorporating what you want into your life.  Make it a
priority to do something you want each day, no matter how small.  You will be
amazed how you will attract what you want.

2.   Do I want to change?

Ask yourself the tough question: Do I want to change?  Change can be scary because
maybe we will have to give up the belief that we can't get what we want.  Yet, when we
give up our old beliefs and replace them with our desires and abilities to create our
lives, we will feel much better about ourselves.  Change takes commitment, even if it is
to do something small.  Actually, keep it small and each day, make a commitment to
one small action item - very small.

3.   What's the bright side?

When a challenging situation occurs in our lives, we can ask ourselves "Why is this
happening to me?"  We can learn something from every experience.  To learn more
about ourselves, ask to see the positive lesson in the experience.  This information will
help you create a stronger life for yourself.  4.   Am I comfortable with what I'm doing?
This is a great time to review what you are doing and capturing what works and what
doesn't work for you in your life today.  You can add to your "101 Things I Want" areas
that you want to change.

5.   Have I done enough for myself?

A powerful question!  Discontentment comes from not taking care of you.  Did you
make that doctor's appointment?  Did you take that walk on the beach, or complete
something that is hard to do, but important for you?  Think of small ways you can do
for yourself.  Your intention can be to feel good about yourself.

6.   Am I happy at where I am today?

Yes, you want to change "stuff" in your life, but are you happy where you are at this
moment in time?  Find something that brightens you at this very moment.

7.   Am I physically in tune with myself?

Do you listen to your body?  If so, what is it saying to you?  Whether you shape-up,
change the way you wear your clothes or hair, or even your attitude towards people,
you can stop long enough to listen to your body.  Your body tells you what you need
to know about yourself.  Trust it.

8.   How much could I have?

How much do you want?  Really want!  We say we want things but underneath sits our
belief that we can't have it.  So how much could you have?  As much as you want!  
Take your "101 Things I Want" list and start a plan.  Then choose one item on the list,
no matter how small.  Work towards want you want.

9.   What motivates me?

What motivates you?  What's your 'why' in life?  Why do you do the things you do?  
What helps you get out of the bed each day and move forward in your life?  Sit
quietly, ask this question, and just write down all your answers.  Write at least 10
different ways you are motivated.

10.   What am I willing to do today to be happy?

Create a list of ways that you can be happy each day.  Some people have gratitude
journals, others take the time to speak with family or friends, while still others take a
long leisurely bath to soothe the body and soul.  Each day we make a choice to be
happy or not.

Final Thought

Don't concern yourself as to what others do...be all you can be!
