Change Your Questions Change Your Life Excerpt :

The first edition of Marilee Adams's book introduced a surprising, life-altering truth: any of us can literally change our lives simply by changing the questions we ask, especially those we ask ourselves. We can ask questions that open us to learning, connection, satisfaction, and success. Or we can ask questions that impede progress and keep us from getting results we want. Asking ''What great things could happen today?'' creates very different expectations, moods, and energy than asking ''What could go wrong today?'' Many readers reported that they found themselves asking better questions before they even finished reading the book! This is the key insight that the book's hero, Ben Knight, learns from his executive coach as the story of his transformative journey unfolds, eventually leading to breakthroughs that save his career as well as his marriage. His success rests on having become a ''question man'' and an inquiring leader rather than a judgmental, know-it-all answer man.In this extensively revised second edition, Adams has made the story even more illuminating and helpful, adding three new chapters as well as three powerful new tools. Change Your Questions, Change Your Life is practical yet simple, giving readers an entertaining, step-by-step guide to a technique that will transform their personal and professional lives. Great results really do begin with great questions - Marilee Adams shows you how to ask them!

Teaching That Changes Lives Excerpt :

Since writing her international bestseller Change Your Questions, Change Your Life, Marilee Adams has increasingly been responding to speaking and consulting requests from educators. Drawing on what she has learned from these experiences she presents the ultimate guide for teachers looking to change the lives of their students while significantly improving their own lives in the process. Adams weaves a compelling story of one teacher's lasting impact on a student to demonstrate how educators can practice and pass on what she calls the Learner Mindset-consistently asking the kind of open-minded, creative, positive questions that encourage curiosity and growth. She contrasts this with the Judger mindset - negative, close-minded, and limiting - that we all too easily succumb to, particularly under pressure - and, as she shows, teachers today are under enormous pressure. Complete with a field-ready workbook that brings Adams' tools for cultivating a Learner mindset directly into the classroom, this book will help teachers become more resilient and better able to nurture a lifelong love of learning in even their most hard-to-reach students.

Ask Yourself a Better Question Excerpt :

The questions we ask ourselves determine our lives. Our thoughts are nothing more than a continuous question-and-answer session we have with ourselves. Our lives - material, emotional, spiritual, and financial - are a direct reflection of our thoughts. Eighty-five percent of these thoughts are both habitual and unconscious. Meaning, we are asking and answering the exact same questions every day, usually in the same way over and over again. What all this means: If there is any area of your life you're not 100% happy with, the root of the needed change is in the questions you're asking of yourself. And since these questions are habitual and unconscious, the first order of business is to become aware of the questions. Only then can we change them. That is exactly what we're doing with this book, Ask Yourself A Better Question. The improved quality of your questions will lead to an improved quality of life. No matter how much skill and how many resources you add to your arsenal, bad questions will always drag you backwards into failure. Not taking full control of your questions will lead you into the randomness of the world - good days and outcomes followed by just as many bad days and outcomes. If this has happened to you before, there isn't anything wrong with you: You just didn't know what you didn't know. No one ever told you about this. There aren't any classes in school teaching you the habit of asking strong, empowering questions. Some people live 80 years and never consider what they've been asking themselves all day every day, thus they think success in life is based on randomness, the luck of the draw. Success and happiness are not random. You become exactly what you ask yourself. Are you ready to ask yourself better questions and improve your life, one answer at a time? You better be, because the journey begins on the next page. Let's get started.

The Book of Questions Excerpt :

The phenomenon returns! Originally published in 1987, The Book of Questions, a New York Times bestseller, has been completely revised and updated to incorporate the myriad cultural shifts and hot-button issues of the past twenty-five years, making it current and even more appealing. This is a book for personal growth, a tool for deepening relationships, a lively conversation starter for the family dinner table, a fun way to pass the time in the car. It poses over 300 questions that invite people to explore the most fascinating of subjects: themselves and how they really feel about the world. The revised edition includes more than 100 all-new questions that delve into such topics as the disappearing border between man and machine—How would you react if you learned that a sad and beautiful poem that touched you deeply had been written by a computer? The challenges of being a parent—Would you completely rewrite your child’s college-application essays if it would help him get into a better school? The never-endingly interesting topic of sex—Would you be willing to give up sex for a year if you knew it would give you a much deeper sense of peace than you now have? And of course the meaning of it all—If you were handed an envelope with the date of your death inside, and you knew you could do nothing to alter your fate, would you look? The Book of Questions may be the only publication that challenges—and even changes—the way you view the world, without offering a single opinion of its own.

The Art of the Question Excerpt :

The Art of the Question extends the range of cognitive-behavioral therapy by elaborating on the ways that internal questions program thought, emotion, and behavior. The term "internal dialogue" is routinely invoked to describe the thinking process, yet a dialogue involves statements and questions. Statements alone tell only half the story and allow only an incomplete understanding of the thinking process. Recognizing that questions drive thoughts, feelings, and actions brings unique and powerful therapeutic advantages to the fore, helping to crack the code on change.

Loving What Is Excerpt :

Out of nowhere, like a cool breeze in a marketplace crowded with advice, comes Byron Katie and “The Work.” In the midst of a normal life, Katie became increasingly depressed, and over a ten-year period sank further into rage, despair, and thoughts of suicide. Then one morning, she woke up in a state of absolute joy, filled with the realization of how her own suffering had ended. The freedom of that realization has never left her, and now in Loving What Is you can discover the same freedom through The Work. The Work is simply four questions that, when applied to a specific problem, enable you to see what is troubling you in an entirely different light. As Katie says, “It’s not the problem that causes our suffering; it’s our thinking about the problem.” Contrary to popular belief, trying to let go of a painful thought never works; instead, once we have done The Work, the thought lets go of us. At that point, we can truly love what is, just as it is. Loving What Is will show you step-by-step, through clear and vivid examples, exactly how to use this revolutionary process for yourself. You’ll see people do The Work with Katie on a broad range of human problems, from a wife ready to leave her husband because he wants more sex, to a Manhattan worker paralyzed by fear of terrorism, to a woman suffering over a death in her family. Many people have discovered The Work’s power to solve problems; in addition, they say that through The Work they experience a sense of lasting peace and find the clarity and energy to act, even in situations that had previously seemed impossible. If you continue to do The Work, you may discover, as many people have, that the questioning flows into every aspect of your life, effortlessly undoing the stressful thoughts that keep you from experiencing peace. Loving What Is offers everything you need to learn and live this remarkable process, and to find happiness as what Katie calls “a lover of reality.”

One Small Step Can Change Your Life Excerpt :

The essential guide to kaizen—the art of making great and lasting change through small, steady steps—is now in paperback. Written by Dr. Robert Maurer, a psychologist on the staff of both the University of Washington School of Medicine and Santa Monica UCLA Medical Center, and an expert on kaizen who speaks and consults nationally, One Small Step Can Change Your Life is the gentle but potent way to effect change. It is for anyone who wants to lose weight. Or quit smoking. Or write a novel, start an exercise program, get out of debt, or conquer shyness and meet new people. Beginning by outlining the all-important role that fear plays in every type of change—and kaizen’s ability to neutralize it by circumventing the brain’s built-in resistance to new behavior—Dr. Maurer then explains the 7 Small Steps: how to Think Small Thoughts, Take Small Actions, Solve Small Problems, and more. He shows how to perform mind sculpture—visualizing virtual change so that real change comes more naturally. Why small rewards lead to big returns by internalizing motivation. How great discoveries are made by paying attention to the little details most of us overlook. Rooted in the two-thousand-year-old wisdom of the Tao Te Ching—“The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step”—here is the way to change your life without fear, without failure, and to begin a new, easy regimen of continuous improvement.
