Welcome to our seventh bonus episode of the summer on one of our Marigold Force Essentials: The Four Questions & The Turnaround

How do you do the Four Questions & the Turnaround? You write down your stressful thoughts, and then ask yourself the following four questions:

  • Question 1: Is it true?

  • Question 2: Can you absolutely know it's true?

  • Question 3: How do you react—what happens—when you believe that thought?

  • Question 4: Who would you be without the thought?

  • And then finally, Turn the thought around:

The "turnaround" gives you an opportunity to experience the opposite of what you believe. Once you have found one or more turnarounds to your original statement, you are invited to find at least three specific, genuine examples of how each turnaround is true in your life.
