The idea is that we cannot change the circumstances of any event in our life. However, we can change our thoughts about the events.

Indeed, we create our thinking. Even if this is not conscious! And from our thinking, we create… Beliefs, rules… and questions!

What is a question?

Good question! Here, we work with the questions we ask ourselves. These are the questions we ask our brain. And our brain is very clever. Indeed: it will always find an answer to any question.

An experiment was realised with people who had a surgery between the two brains’ hemispheres. Knowing that the right brain controls the left side of the body, a visual instruction has been given to this right brain: “take a cup of tea”. The patient gets the order, and instinctively takes the cup. But, when asked why, the left brain (working with language) just improvises an answer: “I took the cup because… I was thirsty.” What? Can you imagine? And the patient is convinced by this answer, believes it. This shows than even when you do not know the answer, your brain improvises one.

Notice your questions

This is why it is so important to notice your questions. What kind of questions do you ask your brain? What answers are you looking for?

If you are asking why you are so useless, or how come you always say wrong things, careful! Your brain will come with an answer.

Maybe you can instead ask yourself:

How can I do this task while having fun?

What is funny about this ?

How can I enjoy my day?

What can I learn from this?

What can I create now to help my futur self?

How can I laugh today?

Who do I want to be?

How can I love myself?

And just wait for the answer.
