Did You Know...

Your mind is like a search engine. The questions you ask program your mind to seek and find an answer. What questions do you ask yourself all day long? Are they effective or ineffective at helping you achieve your goals? 

Ineffective questions are problem-focused. 

It stands to reason that when you ask your mind a problem-focused question, it will search for the answer to the question, which doesn't always help you solve the problem!

7 Problem-Focused Questions NOT to ask

  • Why me?
  • Why can’t I do this?
  • Why do I always mess up?
  • How come I never get it right?
  • What’s wrong with me?
  • Why is this so hard?
  • How come everyone else gets what they want but I don't?

When you've been focusing on a problem, give yourself a mindset reset! Instead, ask the following 7 questions to focus on what you DO want, not what you DON'T want.

When you ask your mind a solution-focused question, you'll screen your environment for viable solutions and increase your probability of finding useful answers. 

 7 Solution-Focused Questions to Reset Your Mindset

  • What am I learning from this experience?
  • What’s important about this?
  • How am I shaping my character?
  • What can I like or appreciate about this?
  • What else is possible?
  • Where's the gift in this situation?
  • Who do I choose to BE?


Remember that asking solution-focused questions programs your mindset for success. Focus on what you CAN have - not what you can't have.

Where attention goes, energy flows. Keep your eyes on the prize! Aim your attention on who you choose to BE to rapidly reset your mindset for success. 

“The quality of the questions you ask determines the quality of the answers you receive.” – Anthony Robbins
