What you aren’t asking yourself daily
"You are only powerless if you believe you are powerless”
Often you forget and catch yourself in an unknown place full of negative emotions. You know that you are there, but you forget how you got there, and then it happens….
The downward spiral, The fall of a kingdom, The lost series, The downfall
What if I told you that you can change all of that by simply asking yourself a few questions daily, by creating a few habits daily, by allowing yourself to be yourself. Most of the time you understand that you exist to live, but you never question the why, you never bother to ponder on the true reason of your existence until a trigger gets activated in your life, and all you want is for things to be normal again.
The act of putting together something that is broken is hardly what you wound up doing, you still get caught in the finding the pieces of your broken self.
Have you ever wondered the stories that you have experienced? What they can mean for something who truly thinks that their life isn’t a story to be told. Have you truly asking yourself whether you are alive or just breathing? Taking breathes of oxygen that currently is in abundance around you but in a single moment all that oxygen could disappear even when it is present, you cannot experience it.
The true meaning of your life can depend on the following things, your will to live, your perception of your past, and the command you give yourself to act on improving the next step you take.
Questioning your daily habits is the good start on this journey of self-discovery:
- Is this the best way to do it?
When you decide, there are usually two thoughts that make that happen. A bias decision that is connected to previous outcomes and something you desire truly. An impartial decision that is connected to everything you don’t believe in and something you don’t want to happen. So, before you decide to question the answer in front of you.
- What bad habit did I curb today?
Curbing a habit isn’t the same thing as expelling the habit entirely like a disease, it is not eliminating the root cause. It is taking a step towards finding a perfect substitute to ensure that no traces of your bad habit are left once it's been replaced. So, stay accountable to the number of times you curb the bad habit. Data never lies.
- How am I better?
Usually, you will get told that don’t compare yourself to anyone else. This is absolutely correct because the person you should always compare yourself to is your present and past self. You are responsible for setting the levels to your own excellence, so set the status quo so high that you continuously challenge yourself.
- Were my actions just?
You can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she treats his peers, his subordinates, his colleagues. So be the person you want to admire. Be kind, be open, be active and be humane.
- How can I improve?
The question of the century! I think so! If you want to understand and answer this question daily, get into a habit of understanding that somethings you will not have anything, and other times you will have a pile of improvements to be made. The cycle of life is continuously improving, you can’t improve by applying it once, it must be trained to your brain as a first natural response to anything and everything.
