7 Questions to Get in a Positive State of Mind

I was watching a DVD of Tony Robbins and love the following set of questions he introduced, to condition our mind and elicit a positive state.

  1. What am I happy about in my life right now? What about that makes me happy? How does that make me feel?
  2. What am I excited about in my life right now? What about that makes me excited? How does that make me feel?
  3. What am I proud of in my life right now? What about that makes me proud? How does that make me feel?
  4. What am I grateful for in my life right now? What about that makes me grateful? How does that make me feel?
  5. What am I enjoying most in my life right now? What about that do I enjoy? How does that make me feel?
  6. What am I committed to in my life right now? What about that makes me committed? How does that make me feel?
  7. Who do I love? Who loves me? What about them makes me loving? How does that make me feel?

How do you feel now? How is it different from few minutes ago? What do these questions do for you?

Marianne Williamson: A Return to Love

We are the most powerful when we are able to connect to our best selves and recognize our unlimited energy and power that’s always there for us, to embrace and celebrate how brilliant, creative and resourceful we are. Everytime I meet someone who has difficulty tooting their own horn, accepting acknowledgements or owning their successes, this passage from “A Return to Love” by Marianne Williamson often comes to my mind:

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we’re liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
