Ask positive questions. – If I ask negative questions, I will get negative answers. There are no positive answers to, “Why me?” “Why didn’t I?” “What if?” etc. Would I allow someone else to ask me the demoralizing questions I sometimes ask myself? I doubt it. So stop and swap them for questions that push me in a positive direction. For instance, “What can I do right now to move forward?”
