πŸ€— A Better Life ~ Ask a Different Question

Asking a different question will get us a different, answer. If the question is designed to elicit a positive response it will often get a great answer. Here’s a true example. I was working with a group when I introduced this concept. When I met the group the following week, a member of the group spoke to me and said, “I was having a difficult time communicating with my teenage son. When he’d come home from school I’d ask, “How was your day?” He’d say, “Okay,” and head into his room. After we met last week, I was ready to ask a different question when he came home from school, “I said, ‘Tell me something good that happened to you today?” He stared at me for a moment, and said, “I found a parking place close to the school.” I never knew how important that was to him. We talked about it. Now, at dinner table, everyone in the family shares something good that happened to them during the day. It has made such a big improvement in our family.”
