10 Fragen, wenn negative Gedanken hochkommen

Even when we do our best, negative thoughts can sometimes affect our mood and thinking. However, if you want to think in a solution-oriented way, you can ask yourself certain questions to find a more positive approach.

Because questions control your focus. By asking certain questions, you can move your focus away from negative thoughts and towards positive energy.

These questions will help you identify negative thoughts, adopt alternative perspectives, and find concrete steps to solve problems.

  1. What exactly feels negative and why? Sometimes it is difficult to identify the exact source of our negative thoughts. By consciously asking ourselves exactly what thoughts and emotions are bothering us, we can find a clear starting point for change.

  2. How can I influence this situation positively? Once you have identified the negative aspects, think about how you can positively influence the situation. What specific actions can you take to make improvements or feel better? Because the only thing that counts is what you can control and influence now.

  3. What solutions or options for action are available to me? Realize that there are always different options and solutions. Broaden your perspective and think about creative approaches or unconventional solutions that are available to you.

  4. How have I overcome similar challenges in the past? Take a moment to remember past situations in which you successfully dealt with challenges. What did you do at the time to deal with the situation? Use these experiences as a source of inspiration and confidence in your abilities.

  5. Are there alternative perspectives I can take? Often we get stuck because we only have a limited perspective on the situation. Try to look at things from different angles. Ask yourself how other people might view the situation or try to put yourself in someone else's shoes. This can lead to new insights and solutions.

  6. What support can I receive from others? It's important to realize that you are not alone. There are people around you who can help you. Find people you trust who can give you advice or support. Sometimes just listening to someone and feeling understood is enough. If you don't have anyone, use our myhōki chat, which you can find on our myhōki platform.

  8. What concrete steps can I take now to create change? To find solutions, it is important to take concrete steps. Create an action plan with clear steps that you can implement right now. Start with small steps and build on them to create lasting change. Rome wasn't built in a day.

  9. What lessons can I learn from this situation? Every situation, even if it seems negative, can contain lessons that we can learn from. Ask yourself what lessons you can learn from the current situation. These insights can help you develop personally and better deal with similar challenges in the future.

  10. Am I ready to take responsibility for my thoughts and actions? Ultimately, it is up to you how you deal with negative thoughts and what steps you take to bring about positive change. By taking responsibility for your thoughts and actions, you empower yourself to achieve more positive outcomes.

By asking yourself these questions, you can change your mindset and encourage solution-focused thinking. It takes practice and patience, but over time you will learn to break negative thought patterns and develop a more positive perspective.
