If you're facing a problem in your life - perhaps in your marriage or your finances - do you ever find yourself asking:
"Why is this happening to me?"
It's a natural reaction, isn't it?
It was certainly something I asked myself a lot when I was going through a difficult relationship breakup and when I became homeless, penniless, with no income and facing bankruptcy.
But here's the thing....
Asking the question: "Why is this happening to me?" only makes it more difficult to get out of the mess that you are in!
Because a question like this acts like a "switch" in your brain...
And it cuts off all of your problem-solving abilities.
It literally "blocks" you from finding the answer.
This is a scientifically-provable fact.
Next time you're in a problem situation, instead of asking "Why is this happening to me?"
Ask yourself this instead:
"Why is this happening FOR me?"
When you do, you will notice a difference in how you feel.
You will find different thoughts coming to you.
Thoughts that will help you deal with the situation - and solve the problem - in a much more effective way.
What is happening when you ask this question instead is that you are changing your brain state. You're changing the way you're using your "brain machinery".
And it is this change that will make all the difference.
