Best Questions to Ask?


If you receive our newsletter, you read this month a short and valuable article about what questions to ask.  Because it can relate to anyone in all kinds of situations, we want to share it with everyone.  Thought provoking questions help to bring clarity and that is what we help our clients with, in their many life situations.  Call us now for help with your next real estate questions and we’ll help you clarify your Best Next Steps!

Asking why is usually counterproductive

As people try to work through difficult situations in their lives, they sometimes focus on “Why.”  They ask: Why was there a tornado; why did I get laid off; why was there a car accident? Why me?

Modern psychologists say they are asking the wrong questions. “Whys” keep them in the victim state and focusing on placing blame. They should begin to focus on how to get on with their lives by asking “What” and “How.” These questions focus on solving problems, and the answers keep you moving forward:

• “What should I do now?”

• “How can I make my situation better? “

• “What can I do to get through this and come out a stronger person?”

Doctors at Psychiatric Associates in Indianapolis say asking how and what questions helps you focus on the future instead of the past. You begin to realize that you have the power to make changes.

They recommend honestly admitting to yourself what your thoughts and feeling are. Allow yourself to experience the crisis.  Ask yourself the right questions and develop a plan of action.
