Quality Life Demands Quality Questions

Dr. John F. Demartini is one of my favourite authors and speakers and I have watched him live a few times. What he says below is of paramount importance if you are interested in cahnging your lives.

“The quality of your life is based partly upon the quality of the questions you ask yourself daily. If you are not inspired about your life or if you are not living the life you truly dream of, it just may be because you are not asking yourself the highest quality questions. The moment you do is the moment your life begins to change. Most people who struggle through life ask themselves such uninspiring questions that their lives become exactly that, uninspiring. Asking yourself low-quality questions leads to a low quality life, but asking yourself high quality questions is one of the keys to living the more self-actualized life you dream of and deserve.

Below are seven high quality questions you could begin asking yourself daily. I have been asking myself these seven questions for many years and have been able to fulfill many of my dreams through this method. Many of my friends and students have also done the same. These questions have already been demonstrated to increase the quality of many people’s lives around the world. Let’s now take a look at these seven high quality questions.

1. What would I absolutely love to do in life?

This question helps bring clearly into your conscious mind one of your heartfelt and meaningful dreams or objectives.

2. How do I become handsomely or beautifully paid to do it?

This question helps you awaken your creativity and helps you reward yourself in return. It helps make your vocation your avocation. Why not get financially rewarded for doing whatever you love?

3. What are the seven highest priority actions steps I could complete today that would enable me to do it?

This question helps you see how possible it is to accomplish this or any other meaningful dream or objective. It helps you organize your actions.

4. What obstacles might I run into and how do I solve them in advance?

This question helps you plan more effectively and prepares you for the challenges you might face in advance. It enables you to act more than react along your journey.

5. What worked and what didn’t work today?

This question helps you refine your actions and keep them on priority. All great endeavors require such feedback.

6. How do I do what I would love more effectively and efficiently?

This question helps you consistently think of more effective and efficient ways of accomplishing your meaningful dream or objective.

7. How did whatever I experienced today – whether positive or negative, serve me?

This question helps you realize that all great endeavors come with both supportive and challenging consequences both of which act as feedback mechanisms to assist you along your accomplishment journey.

Yes, there is a bit of thinking involved in asking and answering quality questions, but with a little effort and refinement you can certainly accomplish a great number of objectives and fulfill a greater number of dreams. Don’t you deserve to live your dreams? Begin asking yourself the same quality questions and see what answers they lead you to. Be as specific and concise as you can. Watch how your creativity begins to soar. The quality of your life is based partly upon the quality of the questions you ask yourself daily and the quality and quantity of actions you take for yourself daily. Begin to ask higher quality questions and begin to act on your dreams today.”

Ever Wonder Why We Shout When We Are Angry?

 

This story is one of the best explanations I’ve come across. Enjoy!

 

A Hindu saint who was visiting river Ganges to take a bath found a group of family members on the banks, shouting in anger at each other.

 

He turned to his disciples, smiled and asked, ‘Why do people shout in anger at each other?’

 

His disciples thought for a while and one of them said, ‘Because when we lose our calm we shout.’

 

‘But why should you shout when the other person is just next to you?’ asked the saint. ‘Can you just as well tell him what you have to say in a soft manner?’

 

When some of the answers did not satisfied the others the saint finally explained, ‘When two people are angry at each other, their hearts distance a lot. To cover that distance they must shout to be able to hear each other. The angrier they are, the stronger they will have to shout to hear each other to cover that great distance.

 

‘What happens when two people fall in love? They don’t shout at each other but talk softly because their hearts are very close. The distance between them is either nonexistent or very small.’

 

The saint continued, ‘When they love each other even more, what happens? They do not speak, only whisper and they get even closer to each other in their love. Finally they even need not whisper, they only look at each other and that’s all. That is how close two people are when they love each other.’

 

He looked at his disciples and said, ‘So when you argue do not let your hearts get distant. Do not say words that distance each other more, Or else there will come a day when the distance is so great that you will not find the path to return.’

 

So What Is Anger?

 

Anger can be defined in many ways: from a loss of calmness, displeasure or irritation, to hostility or rage. When anger takes control, it is nearly impossible to focus on anything except that which has made us angry. Feelings of anger might dissipate after a few moments, linger for a day or take hold for months or years. Sadly, many people lead lives of one volatile encounter after another and don’t know why or how to overcome anger.

 

“When you have a long history with anger, when you’ve put a lot of emotional energy into that anger, you’ve imprinted a pattern in your brain that’s hard to break.”

 

Ref— Transforming Anger, Childre and Rozman, 2003.

 

Anger Builds

 

Anger often starts off as something small and builds. You’re impatient, irritation grows, judgment leads to blame and now you’re angry. Justified or not, the anger causes incoherence in your heart rhythms that activates stress hormones. Research has shown one five-minute episode of anger is so stressful it impairs your immune system for more than six hours.

 

The Quest to Overcome Anger

 

305535_488468651198285_185304677_n

Eliminating anger and the longstanding habits that allow anger to trigger can be hard at first. How do you deal with your challenges in life? If you feel you can’t control your anger? Our physical, emotional and mental vitality are intrinsically linked.  The human heart has intelligence all its own that you can tap into to overcome anger, stress and much more.

 

HeartMath is a comprehensive system based on two decades of research, resulting in techniques, technology and online programmes that provide clear, concise methods for reducing stress and creating a deeper, richer experience of life.

 

HeartMath techniques have been proven effective in breaking the cycle of anger and all of its consequences. The techniques are very easy to learn and are based on extensive scientific research that has revealed how the heart and the brain communicate.

 

“Search your heart,” the saying goes, for therein lies the answer. Heart intelligence, we now know, is a resource that not only can help us overcome anger, but can guide us in transforming our entire lives as well and the process can be scientifically monitored.

 

“In recent years, neuroscientists have made an exciting discovery. They’ve found that the heart has its own independent nervous system – a complex system referred to as ‘the brain in the heart.’ The heart’s intrinsic brain and nervous system relay information back to the brain in the cranium, creating a two-way communication system between heart and brain.”

STORY: “It’s time we made up our own minds about what we believe is right.”

A farmer entered a great city with his son and his donkey. The man was riding the donkey whilst his son lead it on a rope. No sooner had they entered the city walls when they heard a passer-by say in a loud voice, “How disgraceful. See how that man sits on his donkey behaving like a lord of the manor whilst his little son runs himself ragged trying to keep up.” Full of shame, the farmer dismounted and set his son on the donkey while he walked beside it.

In the next street, a peddler drew his customer’s attention to the trio. “Look at that. That little rascal sits up there like the Young Pretender while his poor old father trudges along in the mud.” Deeply embarrassed, the boy asked his father to climb on behind him. Once they turned the corner into the next street, a woman selling her wares exclaimed, “See what has become of the human race? No sensitivity to animals. Look at that poor donkey, it’s back is almost bend in two carrying the weight of those two loafers. Disgraceful!”

Hearing this, the farmer and his son, without a word, slipped off the donkey and began to walk beside it. They hadn’t gone more than fifty meters when they heard a market stall holder call out, “I thought I was stupid but look, what’s the point of having a donkey when it doesn’t do any work?”

The farmer stopped and having given his donkey a pat on the nose, said to his son, “Whatever we do, someone disagrees with it. Perhaps it’s time we made up our own minds about what we believe is right.”

STORY: The Important Things In Life! What’s in your jar?

A philosophy professor stood before his class with some items on the table in front of him. When the class began, wordlessly he picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with rocks, about 2 inches in diameter.

He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was.

So the professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles, of course, rolled into the open areas between the rocks.

He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was.

The professor picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else.

He then asked once more if the jar was full. The students responded with a unanimous “Yes.”

“Now,” said the professor, “I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life. The rocks are the important things – your family, your partner, your health, your children – things that if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full.

The pebbles are the other things that matter – like your job, your house, your car.

The sand is everything else. The small stuff.”

“If you put the sand into the jar first,” he continued “there is no room for the pebbles or the rocks. The same goes for your life.

If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff, you will never have room for the things that are important to you. Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Play with your children. Take your partner out dancing. There will always be time to go to work, clean the house, give a dinner party and fix the disposal.

Take care of the rocks first – the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand.”
