All you have to do is ASK the right Question.
Are you looking to live a happier and more successful life?
Are you seeking the master key to know your purpose, personal happiness, and the freedom of movement in all areas of your life?
In 1997, I sought the answers to these questions in my life. At the time, I was living at the bottom of life. I wasn’t living the life I desired to live. I was living life on other people’s terms, and ready to give up. I knew that I was no longer willing to live the life I had lead up until that moment, seeking to know my purpose, and asking how to live a life full of fulfillment and meaning. I was mad at the world-I thought there was something wrong with me, that I was not blessed with the key to success.
Fortunately hope hit me on the head and reminded me of its existence. Reality has a way of doing that to you. I was given a wakeup call! rather than have YOU remain hopeless while awaiting your wake-up call, allow me to quote one of my mentors, Brian Tracy: “Only by contending with challenges that seem to be beyond your strength to handle at the moment you can grow more surely toward the stars.”
My wakeup call was the blessing to be shown the gift that I was. To be shown my purpose in a near death experience. The me I was capable of being. I thought the success I was meant to be was going to happen immediately after my near death experience. Do you think life changed for me over night? No, it didn’t! I ended up losing all my possessions and walked homeless on the streets with my children.
Realizing that the dream started with me, I made the commitment to look on the inside, and sought to grow toward the stars. I discovered what I was really made of. I discovered the keys to create lasting change, deeper purpose, and connection and service to something greater than myself.
My teacher and mentor Mary Morrissey says, “its always about asking the right questions. Mary says, ” the quality of your question will determine the quality of your life.” When I ended up homeless on the streets. I asked myself. ” How can this make me better? ” I felt an immediate shift inside. I grew from the experience, and since I was homeless in the SequoiaNational Forest, I learned about nature and not only my connection, but the connection we all have to it. I grew in ways that could never have happened otherwise.
Questions immediately change what we’re focusing on and therefore how we feel. If you keep asking questions like “How come this always happens to me?” or “Why am I fat or overweight?” you will focus on, look for, and find references to back up the idea that there is a reason for why challenges always happen to you and that you are fat and overweight. As a result, you’ll stay in those un-productive states. If instead you ask, “How can I change my state so that I am feeling happy and am being more lovable,” you’ll focus on SOULlutions.
I learned many valuable lessons on that journey; lessons to share with others, and help others walking in those shoes. The experience gave me ingredients to a recipe. I learned a valuable lesson in this experience: The master key is to KNOW the answers are always there, and the questions we receive are often determined by the questions we ask. The more specific, clear, motivating questions we ask the better answers we receive.
I learned the problems I faced in life were often an error in thinking, and if I really wanted to create a shift in my life; when I turned away from the appearance of the struggle, or adversity I faced and placed my attention on what it was I really wanted, the right people, and the right opportunities always showed up to help me moved forward. Many times these solutions, goals, and opportunities showed up either immediately, or within days.
