One of the most important things about creating an intentional life is to question your thoughts. Without questioning your thoughts, you run the risk of continuing to create a life based on default programming – thoughts you don’t even recognize are optional and which may not be serving you.
Your life is a direct reflection of what you think. If you want to create something new in your life, you have to think something new. But we can’t just slap a new thought over top of old programming. We have to first understand what we think presently that is creating our current life. Once we understand it, we can work to change what we think and get the new results. One of the ways you can begin to understand what you think is to ask yourself great questions.
Below is a list of questions you can start with. You may wish to ask yourself these questions and write down your answers. I will continue to add to this list so if you find these questions helpful, you can bookmark this page and come back to it later.
