When you are part of a team and a community such as Millionaires In Action, the Isagenix team based in the greater New York area, you have access to amazing guest speakers such as Bill Mayer on the team call every Monday night. Surely, week after week there have been great speakers who have imparted their wisdom concisely and precisely in the thirty minutes that they are given. This past Monday night’s call with Bill Mayer, the life coach and author of “The Magic in Asking the Right Questions”, however, touched me more deeply than most. Bill learned long ago that everything changes when you start asking the right questions.
When Bill Mayer started the call he put forth a thought that particularly resonated with me. He asked us all to think about this statement:
My thoughts control my life and my questions control my thoughts. Therefore, when I master my questions, I master my thoughts and, in doing so, I master my life.
Bill Mayer: we all have a very judgmental “little voice”
We all have a little voice inside of our heads that is incessantly describing our cognitive experience of the world around us, and it is usually being very judgmental about our actions and reactions to the events in our lives. How often does the little voice inside of your head come back around to what worries you, or what is wrong with the way you are doing things? We are our own worst critics. It is what this voice is saying that Bill Mayer addresses in his coaching, and he put it very eloquently in the short time that he shared with us.
Bill Mayer: 4 Things to Master
There are four things that Bill Mayer says we need to master in our lives to overcome our “little voice” and achieve our dreams, bring happiness and joy into our daily experiences. These start when you Master Your Questions. It is vital to start each day by asking yourself, “what am I thankful for right now?” “What’s great about this?” “How can I make this fun?” Quiet that little voice by instructing it to ask these questions to find the pleasure and joy in everything that you do.
Next, he instructed us to Master Your Focus. Bill Mayer quoted one of my favorite speakers, Dr. Wayne Dyer, who says, “Where your focus goes, your energy flows.” If you focus on the bills that you have to pay, or the people who bring angst into your life, then, guess what? That kind of negative energy is what you will have come into your life that day. There is no joy in that. We have to take stock in what we spend our time focusing on. We are energy beings and we attract energy through our focus.
When you master your questions to master your focus, then you will Master Your Emotions. Most people don’t realize that they actually choose how they react to emotional stimuli. When an event occurs that triggers the juices inside the human body to evoke a sensation that is then interpreted by the brain, we then feel an emotion. In most cases it is actually the unconscious mind that decides whether to be overcome by it, or to feel it and act responsibly. When we become conscious of this and act with intent, then this is mastering our emotions. Direct the inner voice to stop with the alarms and overwhelm. To learn how to be the master is what changes our lives. Then, and only then, can we achieve that final mastery, which is to Master Your Life. Bill Mayer suggests that we all have this capability within us. It is just a matter of becoming aware of it and taking these action steps to deal with it. Success and joy in life will follow!
