In today’s world, there is a lot that we could complain about. There is a lot to worry about. Undeniably, there is plenty to stress about. As of recently, my favorite question to ask someone has been, “What has excited you recently” It’s a simple and innocuous question, but it always elicits a fun response!
It would be easy (and we wouldn’t blame you) for noticing and acknowledging the negative things going on around you. However, this is a choice of where to place your focus. Hint hint: that’s how you have the best day ever.
When you ask someone this question you get to watch someone light up when they tell you about what’s good in their world, find out what is meaningful to them, and it’s always a positive, optimistic (forward-thinking) answer. By definition, it’s exciting.
With this in mind, we’ll ask you today. ” What excites you?” “What has been exciting to you recently? What is exciting to you right now?” If you’re having trouble answering that question, then here are a few follow up questions:
What are you looking forward to today?
What impact are you looking forward to making soon in your life?
What is currently meaningful to you right now?
What do you feel strongly about in your life that is positive?
Ultimately, we hope this sparks a positive conversation with yourself and with others today. We all need things to look forward to, and focusing on something that excites you is a great way to kickstart some momentum.
