Usually, we wouldn’t think of a question or a phrase as a tool, instead we would think of a sander, a hammer or maybe a knife. In the realm of mental creation and personal work, however there are many tools we can use that are as powerful, once recognized and applied. My favorite mind tool is one of these.

What would the person I intend to become do next?

This one question is one of the favorite tools I’ve learned from the Master Key Experience. This question helps me to separate my actions from my emotions. I am an educated observer and asking myself this question helps me make sure my Plan of Action and my Goals stay aligned.

We can use this question when assessing our next steps with anything. This week, I used it several times when I didn’t “feel” like working out. Instead of thinking about “wanting to or feeling like” working out, I said, would the healthy, strong, fit Ann go work out or skip today? Duh, of course I would work out, so I did. I am fascinated by how unattached emotionally I become to the decision.

Today, I used this question when thinking about writing this week’s blog post which is due by Friday. Would the future Ann who believes in the MKE strategies and is successful put off writing her blog entry or would she just “DO IT NOW?” Duh, the action no longer becomes a choice, it becomes an action that I complete. It’s AMAZING!

When we ask this question, we imagine the future version of ourselves, the one who has achieved our goals and has transformed into the person we were meant to become. It is by using our imagination, our future self has an opportunity to influence our current self and ensure our actions are aligned with our goals. I am SO EXCITED to apply this question regularly and to teach others to do the same.
