The questions we ask ourselves are so powerful in our lives. Asking yourself the right powerful questions can set your mind in a positive direction for your day, which in turns shapes your destiny.
I’m going to share with you 3 powerful questions you can ask yourself that are game-changers when it comes to the way you show up.
If you want to be a leader or an inspirational role model to your followers and community, you need to be sure you are showing up in a positive manner.
People are watching your life right now.
Failing to ask the right, powerful questions is like leaving a toddler in the house by themselves with a knife. They would run around wild like crazy. If we’re not telling our minds and thoughts what to focus on, then our minds will also run wild.
Sadly we naturally tend towards the negative in our minds. We ask ourselves why people aren’t liking our posts. We ask ourselves if there is something wrong with us.
Often these negative questions stem from a fear of not being good enough or fear of being rejected. We are programmed to believe that we are not enough because that’s the marketing messages we receive all the time.
If we’re not intentional then we can just default into thinking the negative questions in our minds. I’m going to give you 3 belief builders that I use in my own life that are effective and help push me forward.
3 Belief Builders
1 – What Are The Great Decisions You Have Made?
We often focus on things we’ve done wrong and bad decisions or habits we have, instead of focussing on the amazing decisions we’ve made that have led to positive outcomes.
I encourage you to write them down. If you spent 5 minutes writing down your great decisions, you will find infinitely more great decisions that you’ve made than wrong decisions.
Your good decisions could be moving to a new country, enrolling in a new course, going to university or learning a new language. They could be simple decisions like cutting out sugar or starting to exercise.
2 – What Are Your Skills, Knowledge, Experience And Results?
Write out your skills, knowledge, experience and results on paper. Doing this will build your belief in yourself. It will also build your confidence.
People are looking for good, confident leaders and role models. You need to come across confidently to people, so you have to build your belief in yourself. You need to have a strong level of confidence and certainty.
Ask yourself – what are your accomplishments? What skills do you have? Can you swim well or dance well? What about in the area of your business? Are you great at marketing, sales or copywriting?
What are some of the things you know that you could teach? There have been hundreds and even thousands of hours that you have learned things throughout your life. You know so much and sometimes you just have to remind yourself that you do know enough.
3 – I Am Statements
The 3rd belief builders are ‘I am…’ statements. I am strong. I am capable. I am confident. I am inspiring. I am valuable. I am motivated. I am resilient.
Write down as many ‘I am…’ statements as you can think of.
Some of mine are: I am worthy. I am knowledgeable. I am strong. I am capable. I am a positive influence. I am a great coach. I am a great speaker. I am dedicated. I am committed. I am growing every day.
All the ‘I am…’ statements are positive that you write down. You will find that you feel awesome after speaking these out. These get you into the right state.
The 3 Questions you Need to Be Asking Yourself
1 – How Can I Over-deliver Today?
If you want to stand out today, you have to ask yourself; How can I overdeliver today? You can’t just be good or great, you have to be outstanding.
This doesn’t mean you have to be perfect. It just means that every time you show up, whether that is on Facebook or Instagram, in a forum or group, a coaching session or in person, you want to overdeliver.
Mastering business is all about bringing the care and the heart, so you are not just pushing out content, but you are willing to serve.
Find a community that you care for so much, that you are not just asking from them. You will be inspired to show up and serve.
Self-confidence comes from serving people at a higher level than others and having a higher standard and keeping it, even if you don’t feel like it or not.
When you create great experiences for people, they will refer other people to you. Your name will get out there and spread by word of mouth. People that overdeliver get more clients because they serve at a higher standard and surpass people’s expectations.
This requires heart. So many of us are so busy with our to do list and ticking off tasks, that we forget to step back and ask how can we be a massive blessing to others? How can I give an outstanding effort today?
We push ourselves to do more. You don’t learn this, you earn it.
If you are feeling flat or run down in your business, you need to model someone who is outstanding and overdelivering. Ask yourself every day, How can I overdeliver today?
2 – If This Was the Last Week of my Life How Would I Show Up?
The second question to ask yourself is; If this was the last week of my life, how would I show up?
Would you hold back and put things off, or would you go for it? Would you jump on Facebook Live? What would you share if you really wanted to make an impact?
If you had a whole week to spread your message, what would you do? What would you say? Who would you spend time with?
How would you show up? You would probably show up as outstanding. You would have energy and be next level. You wouldn’t be flat, depressed or complaining. You would want to have peak performance.
Why not do this every week? It’s not about hyping yourself up. It’s about asking yourself who you want to be in this world and then tapping into that reason and energy. You don’t have to force it. It’s a by-product that comes with having the desire to be the most outstanding that you can be.
3 – Why MUST I Show Up To the Best of My Ability?
Number 3 is to ask yourself; Why must I show up to the best of my ability? People need help more than ever at the moment.
You need to be evolving with the current times. Your marketing needs to reflect these current times. People want their questions answered.
People want to feel understood more than anything in the world.
One of the best feelings in the world is when someone understands us – when we pour out our hearts to someone and they truly understand us. People are craving this.
Make a decision to never settle for being anything less than the best you can be. This is what it means to be successful, to be a leader and not a follower. You have gifts that other people don’t have and you can use them to help people.
If you’re not showing up to the fullness of your ability and you know there’s more potential and more for you, these powerful questions will help you set your mindset.
