The Secret Handbook 4 Teens

Sometimes it’s ok to talk to yourself. Want to know why? Do this exercise.

Got a problem? An issue? A conundrum? Are you afraid to do something? Unsure of how to proceed? Why not ask yourself for the answer. I know that sounds strange but sometimes we already have the answers inside of us but we can’t see them for whatever reason.

Exercise:

Imagine yourself sitting on the bench above and imagine that you’re sitting next to yourself. After you’re done admiring how good looking you are, go ahead and ask away. What do you want to know?

You can ask things like:

How did you solve this issue?

When did things get easier?

What did you do to figure out problem X?

How did you stop stressing about Y?

What did you do to get over Z?

You may not get the specific answer you’re looking for but I guarantee you’ll answer back. After all, everyone loves to be asked for their opinion. Even when you ask yourself.

Start a conversation. You never know what you might learn.
