This is something I know: If you want to feel stuck and miserable its a really simple thing. Just focus on something that makes you unhappy and ask yourself “why” things are the way they are.
Tony Robbins suggests these questions instead. They are mostly “what” questions and are a challenge to inventory the good things and to be present to the way they make you feel.
If anyone is moved to try this exercise consistently, I’d love to hear from you on whether you find it to be effective as part of your morning routine to put yourself into peak state.
