Empowering Questions are great for immediately unlocking your hidden potential.
Our brain was built for answering and problem solving.
I would venture to safely assume it's probably the absolute most favorite thing of all brains combined.
Some people's brains even go as far as to create problems that don't exist because they are bored and want to problem solve.
This can happen in the form of old conversations we wish we could go back and have so we can finally say that thing we've always wanted to say, or sometimes we'll dig up a problem from 9 years ago that we never thought about until we were laying in bed, bored out of our mind and our brain decides to think about it.
When our clients approach us with similar problems, we end up noticed they are stuck in what is called a negative psycho-dynamic loop where they ask themselves over and over again why something happened, why they did what they did, why them....notice a pattern?
When we ask our brain questions, it generates answers - even if we don't like the answer it gave us.
If we ask, "Why am I so stupid?" then it will give us back all the possible reasons as an answer.
"Your parents were stupid...you went to a public school...you were bullied...you didn't study.....etc.."
However - when we change the status quo, and begin asking EMPOWERING questions - the answers our brain is able to generate immediately become vastly superior to the old ways of thinking.
An Empowering Question will usually have the same 2-4 layer components, with each component adding depth and specificity, with two layers being the minimum because only asking with the first layer is extremely vague and our mind LOVES focus and detail.
So what are these layers I speak of?
The first layer utilizes process words, like "What" and "How".
The second layer places the question in the present tense or with a time constraint.
The third layer states the question with positive intentions.
The fourth layer asks the question with a presupposition.
Putting it all together would create something like this.
Example: "Why am I so stupid?"
First Layer: "How can I get smarter?"
Second Layer: "How can I get smarter, today?"
Third Layer: "How can I get smarter today and have a blast doing it?"
Fourth Layer: "Since I'm learning something new each day, how can I continue to get smarter today and have a blast doing it?"
When you ask your brain this type of question, you will begin to generate NEW & POWERFUL answers that would normally be out of your conscious awareness.
The best part is you can write down these empowering questions on a post-it note or something similar, and then stick them in a place where you'll see them frequently so you'll continue to ask them - even on an unconscious level!
I personally recommend the bathroom mirror - close to where you brush your teeth.
Read them each day and take a moment to generate some answers!
Now that you know how to unlock your hidden potential, wouldn't it be great to immediately begin seeing results with the answers you find?
When we work with our clients on generating their own empowering questions, we also apply NLP and Hypnosis to help them find answers AND develop the motivational drive towards the answers they created.
I won't tell you how incredibly successful our clients have been, because the proof is in the experience itself.
