The last couple of months have been such a rollercoaster of emotions for me. I have spent a lot of time on introspection. I’ve asked myself WHY a lot. The more I asked, the more I tried to dig deep, the worse I felt. Turns out I’d been doing it wrong. Asking myself Why wasn’t going to make me more aware of myself and it wasn’t going to give me the answers on someone else’s behavior. In fact, it negatively affected my relationship with people I care for and made me a less effective employee. What I should have been doing is treating myself like a business, I should have been asking WHAT and not WHY.
In business, a successful leader is one that expects challenges and successfully redirects their employees from ruminating in the drama and instead focusing on what each of them can do to create the change they want to see. Therefore, producing results and not just pointless meetings.
Asking WHY made me a victim, and honestly there is nothing more than I hate than being made out to be weak or as if I needed someone’s pity. Asking WHY invited rumination. But asking WHAT put me back in control of my life. It gave me clarity. What am I doing to make myself feel this way? What am I going to focus my energy on so that I no longer feel this way? What can I do to better myself?
Have you been asking yourself WHY lately? If so, I challenge you to stop playing the blame game. Start asking yourself WHAT you are going to do to switch gears and then take a step in the right direction!
Pasito Tun Tun!
