Einstein once said "To have a better life we must keep choosing how we are living." Choice is answered by asking questions. What better way to be in charge and in control of the choices in your life than by picking a pack of cards and choosing the questions that inspires you to move to answer your own call to action.
Australian coach Lindsay Tighe, is author of a boxed set of 48 self-coaching cards called Choose Your Life! The cards are categorized by subject and colour; green is for work, blue is for well-being, dark blue is for finances, red is for emotions, purple is for life essentials, orange is for time for me, yellow is for personal growth and light green is for relationships. You can easily pick a card that relates to the area you want to improve or when you have the 'grass is greener on the other side' mentality;' choosing a question from these cards allows you to see, appreciate and reaffirm where you are.
Good questions help you focus on solutions and alternatives, minimizing victim thinking and gives you a psychological boost of knowing you can help yourself. Just the very fact that you can pick up this deck of cards with the heading "Choose Your Life! " motivates and empowers, something that most programs are unable to accomplish. The cards themselves are the size of a deck of playing cards and if you have ever played card games you'll know that there is action and movement. Shuffle the cards and begin the game of life, your life.
Each card has a quote on one side and three questions related to the topic on the other side. By choosing the card and the question you demonstrate that you're in charge of your life instead of stewing in your own frustration and negativity.
Here are some questions that will inspire you to start a conversation with yourself, with friends, family or your peers at work.
Orange card is Time for Me; topic is Inspiration; Quote: "Most of us dread finding out when we come to die that we have never really lived." Thoreau.
Questions on the back
- What and who inspires me in my life?
- How can I be inspirational to those people around me?
- If I can create a bigger purpose for my life what would that be?
Purple card is Life Essentials; topic is Time Management - Quote - The only way to live is to accept each minute as an unrepeatable miracle, which is exactly what it is - a miracle and unrepeatable." Margaret Storm Jameson.
Questions on the back:
- What am I procrastinating over? What is the payback for this procrastination?
- Where would I like to spend more of my time?
- What am I doing that is demanding on my time yet there is little payback for me? How can I change this?
Questions for the most part are non-judgmental, they take you where you stand and help move you to where you want to be. Plato once said "People have innate knowledge; they just need to be asked the right question." With the Choose Your Life! Self-coaching cards you will be able to draw the answers for you because the answers are from you, so be in charge, 'Choose Your Life!'
