This question changed my approach to life

Do you know which question I am constantly asking myself?

This question has completely changed how I see things. It has transformed my approach to life.

I make sure that I regularly take a step back and ask myself this simple yet effective question.

“What can I learn from this?”

When a project I have been working on doesn’t get the response I had been hoping for:

“What can I learn from this?”

When I constantly feel drained and down after speaking to a certain person:

“What can I learn from this?”

When I feel stressed every morning while I prepare the kids’ lunch box for school:

“What can I learn from this?”

When I feel sad about not being able to see my family in Europe:

“What can I learn from this?”

When I don’t stick to the plan I had created for myself (be it for work, workouts, or chores), when I find excuses every time one particular task is coming up:

“What can I learn from this?”

It pulls me out of victim mode and helps me take full responsibility for my life.

And it brings up another question:

“And so, what CAN I do about this?”

Things don’t happen TO me.

They happen FOR me.

They happen to teach me something.

To help me get to know myself better.

To help me find out what works for me. And what doesn’t.

So, the next time you feel like wondering “Why does this always have to happen to ME?!”, try to ask yourself “What can I learn from this?” and see if that feel any different.

Much love ❤️
