Sometimes, we don’t understand our own thoughts or motivations. It is worth digging deeper by asking powerful questions – one layer at a time to get to the crux of the issue.
Good questions can open up an awareness that you might not have realized. Questions challenge a different part of our brain bringing about a different emotional response. From that emotional response, you might uncover what is really going on for you.
Start by articulating the problem. “I want to do this, but it’s been weeks and I haven’t even started yet.”
Then ask yourself a question that will help you get one layer deeper. “Why haven’t I started?”
Answer that question to yourself, and then delve deeper.
Keep investigating until you have a solid understanding of the main issue. Sometimes, it isn’t at all what you might have thought.
