10 Ways to Turn a Bad Day into a Good Day

10 Ways to Turn a Bad Day into a Good Day

Wendy Piersall

I think we can all agree that even though we work at home, we can still have “bad days at the office.” Some days we just get discouraged. Others we wonder what the heck we are doing. And on the really bad days, we question whether we are really doing the right thing and how we will ever turn it around.

There are times when calling it quits is the right decision — just like there are times when it’s the right decision to leave a job and move onto something else. Other times, we just need to overcome some bad emotions or limiting beliefs so that we can keep going until the light at the end of the tunnel starts to appear. This post is for those of you who want to keep going when you just can’t seem to get past a certain hurdle or obstacle.

I believe very strongly in the following two presuppositions about people:

1. The resources you need to succeed are already within you.

2. There are no unresourceful people, only unresourceful states of mind.

How do we access unresourceful states of mind? It’s simple. We ask ourselves unresourceful questions.

Allow me to give you some examples of unresourceful questions:

1. What am I doing wrong?

2. Why do I keep messing up?

3. Why can’t I get the results I want to achieve?

4. What am I missing?

Think about the answers you would give yourself to such questions. You are telling your mind to go looking for answers that will continue to reinforce your doubt, frustration, and generally negative state of mind.

The power to access better resources is found by asking questions that force us to look for great, empowering answers.

So, without further ado, here are 10 resourceful questions to ask of yourself:

1. What would I have to believe about myself in order to know with 100% certainty that this business is the right path for me?

2. What would I have to believe about myself and my business in order to feel excited about the challenge of overcoming the current obstacle in front of me?

3. What am I faced with right now that is actually a great opportunity for growth?

4. What would I have to believe about this opportunity in order to take on this challenge with excitement and gratitude for the chance to make a change?

5. If I were to tackle this day (or week! or month!) with my most creative resources available to me, what would I do, think and believe differently than I am doing in this moment?

6. What would have to happen in order for me to feel as though my business is a success no matter what? What can I do now in order to make that happen?

7. What resources are available to me that I haven’t tapped into yet to build my business? Are there friends, business acquaintances, or books that I know for certain can help me take my business to the next level?

8. What things do I already know about my business that will make me successful that I haven’t done yet, and what would make me feel excited about implementing a plan of action to do them immediately?

9. What accomplishments have I already achieved in my business, and what lessons can I take from those past successes that will enable me to repeat them?

10. If my future self could travel back in time to this moment and give me some advice, what would s/he say that would completely energize and motivate me to succeed?

Remember: the power of a great question lies in a very, very key component. You have to go searching for the great answer within yourself.
