Here’s another post to follow up on solution oriented problem solving and how we can turn these challenges around to benefit us in the long term and for a lifetime.
Tony Robbins is a master at teaching people how to change their states of mind and has spent a lifetime perfecting his theories and strategies.
What better strategy is there than modeling one of the best in the world at what he does?
This set of questions comes directly from Tony Robbins’ book, Notes From A Friend.
It is not a compilation of what I think works, it is the work of a lifetime of his focus in this area. It is an excellent way to get yourself to take action if a problem or challenge becomes overwhelming.
It is a simple set of 5 questions that are meant to get you to look at your problem in a different light.
Ask yourself these five questions whenever a problem comes up and I quarantee that you will attack it, look for solutions, and solve it.
You must ask yourself these questions seriously and with a sincere desire to find the answers. Determine that you will find the right answers for you.
Here they are:
1. What is great about this problem?
2. What is not perfect yet?
3. What am I willing to do to make it the way I want it?
4. What am I willing to no longer do to make it the way I want it?
5. How can I enjoy the process while I do what is necessary to make it the way I want it?
The idea is to focus on solution rather than the problem itself.
You will find a way through just about any challenge by completing this exercise properly. (excerpted from Tony Robbins book, Notes From A Friend)
