I really like the idea of asking positive questions, and because of this I've decided to have this section of Personal Development Ideas to be the main index of various positive questions you may want to ask yourself in all kinds of situations. Please let me know if you want some of your positive questions to be added here, I'm sure others will find them useful.
As you probably know, the main principle of asking positive questions is to have a belief that you have the positive answer to anything within yourself. By asking a positive question, you're implying the certainty of a positive answer in the question itself.
To master the art of asking positive questions, you have to stop asking negative questions like "Why can't I solve this problem?" (notice the implication of your own inability to solve the problem right there in the question), and learn to ask every question in a positive way, like this: "What is the easiest way for me to solve this problem?" (again, notice how the question implies not only that you know how to solve the problem, but also that there must be a few solutions available, and you'll pick the easiest one of them).
The key to mastering positive questions:
When faced with a difficult situation, learn to start your questioning with this simple question: What positive questions can I ask myself about this?
- What is the easiest way for me to solve this problem?
- What is the most elegant solution to the problem I can think of?
- What value will I provide by continuing the argument?
- How do I close the argument without compromising my own integrity?
- How can I finish the argument without offending the opponent?
- How can I close the issue without being offended or irritated?
