How would your higher self handle this?

Maybe you already know the biggest problem that’s going to hit you today. When it does, have a conversation with yourself. How would my higher self handle this?

Let’s see. My higher self probably wouldn’t get explosive. My higher self probably wouldn’t start running for the hills. My higher self would probably say: “This will need some resourcefulness. I guess I’d better get my game on here, because I’m going to have to solve this.”

You see, your higher self will always solve a problem with innovation and spirit and without getting down. The natural tendency is often to get pulled down into our “lower selves”—slide into victimhood, complain to others, start to blame—the kinds of things that are the antithesis of the commitments of our higher selves.

So, what if you start every day by asking yourself this, before you hit your toughest moments: “What’s my biggest problem, and how would my higher self handle that today?”
