Overview

"In this inspirational book, Joseph Nowinski tells powerful stories of real people who have answered these questions and actually changed their lives. Equally important, he provides practical exercises that can help you answer them and change your life for the better."

—Redford Williams, M.D., director of the Behavioral Medicine Research Center of Duke University and coauthor of Anger Kills and Lifeskills

In 6 Questions That Can Change Your Life, Joseph Nowinski, Ph.D., has designed a clear, easy-to-follow program based on six deceptively simple questions, carefully formulated to bring what he calls a vision, a coherent, energizing blueprint for your future that strips away years of people-pleasing and conditioning to get to the heart of the life you were really meant to live. By weaving dramatic stories about the transformative visions of world luminaries and clients from his private practice together with 40 self-tests, exercises, and charts, Dr. Nowinski demonstrates the humble might of these six questions and their power to spark a complete revolution—a quantum change—in the way you think about and approach your own life, your relationships, and your sense of purpose and place in the world. Feel for yourself the experiences Dr. Nowinski's clients cite after undergoing quantum change:

— Put your past behind you

— Stop conforming to the limiting expectations and opinions of others

— Experience freedom from fear and self-doubt

— Gain clarity and an invigorating sense of purpose

— Seize the moment with a potent new combination of spontaneity and solid planning

Time and again, people who use the six questions to realize their quantum change are amazed at how little willpower they need to change the things they don't like about their lives. Instead of forcing themselves to "buckle down" or "get some willpower," Dr. Nowinski's clients describe the sense of being naturally pulled by the momentum and might of their own insights. In this state of effortless energy, you will make huge leaps forward without the strain and frustrating slowness of step-by-step approaches. Let 6 Questions That Can Change Your Life give you the focus, power, and vision to enact your own quantum change.

You drove that new car off the lot, and for a while your heart soared every time you looked at it. Or maybe you finally scored that killer promotion you've been focused on. Your dream house is redecorated and your kids are doing well in school. You've accomplished so much— so why are you standing here wondering...

Is this all there is?

Many of us get to a point in our lives where we've played by the rules and done everything we were supposed to do, but still don't feel happy or satisfied—so what now? How do we claim for ourselves lives of invigorating passion and purpose when we feel trapped or dragged down by the vestiges of the lives we're already committed to?

The answers are waiting for you inside this book. Drawing from his decades of experience helping people who want more out of life, Dr. Joseph Nowinski has designed a simple, six-step process that helps you uncover your own personal vision of the life you were meant to live. Instead of plodding along a slow course of schedules and goals, you'll learn how to implement changes quickly, easily, and permanently— a transformative experience he calls quantum change. You'll see how simple it can be to live your dreams—and you won't have to run away, quit your job, or get a divorce to do it.

It's time to stop playing by the rules. 6 Questions That Can Change Your Life breaks you out of your rut and shows you the doorway to dramatic, immediate, permanent change. Your new life can begin today.

"Dr. Nowinski has created a wonderfully insightful and eye-opening guide to help you discover your true self, make lasting changes, and create a solid vision for your future. 6 Questions That Can Change Your Life is a remarkable book that is as useful as it is original."

—Barry Neil Kaufman, founder/director of The Option Institute and author of Happiness Is a Choice

"A timely, compassionate, and compelling book. Dr. Nowinski shows us how to rethink who we are, discover what's truly important to us, and empower ourselves to grow into the people we're meant to be. The real-life stories of men and women who have found fulfillment and happiness offer us both hope and inspiration."

—Bob Griffiths, author of Do What You Love for the Rest of Your Life

Introduction

It isn't where you've been . . . it's where you're going that matters in the end.

The experience of helping hundreds of people who've sought to change their lives in a positive way has taught me one important rule: Analyzing your past may be less important than discovering a vision for your future. That vision is the true starting point for dramatic, all-encompassing change—a personal transformation called quantum change.

6 Questions That Can Change Your Life offers you a road map for creating your own vision for the future, the imaginative leap that leads to quantum change. Like the visions of many of the people whose stories are recounted in this book, your vision may appear when you least expect it, yet it will hold the power to transform your life in extraordinary ways. In these pages, you will meet a man whose vision came to him in a dream and a woman whose vision was triggered by a passage from a children's bedtime story. You will meet a man whose vision came to him in an old photograph and a woman whose life changed course as the result of a child's question. These visions pointed out each individual's path—and then gave him or her the energy to begin the journey.

As you read, you may wonder if you're capable of having a vision or if you even need one. The answer to both of these questions is an unequivocal yes. Even if you've never experienced a blinding light of insight about which direction your life should take, the truth is that you're already acting according to a very specific plan. 6 Questions That Can Change Your Life can help you determine whether that plan is truly your own or perhaps inherited from someone else.

You see, all of us go through our lives seeking answers to certain fundamental questions. These questions help us define key psychological themes for our lives, such as identity and our sense of place in the world. Guided by messages we may have heard from our parents or developed as defenses against pain and fear, we may unconsciously seek answers to the wrong questions. We look at the world as if through a set of distorted lenses—sure, we can see through them, but our perspective becomes fuzzy, muddled, confused. We may look at financial success and the accumulation of beautiful things as ends in themselves, and then feel oddly discouraged and unrewarded when we actually achieve them. We may crave excitement to break us out of our boring routines, or yearn for inner serenity and peace of mind, only to remain in our ruts and have contentment continually elude us. Searching for answers, we may create elaborate rituals or dabble in various religions, or continually rake through the remains of our childhoods for explanations or clues to our behavior. We want hints, any sign that will tell us where to go, and what we're meant to do. We find none. Feeling empty and adrift, we wonder if there truly is any point to all of this.

Of course there is. The impulse that drives us to search for meaning is valid and honorable—it is, in fact, the work of being human. But seeking answers outside ourselves is effort that is ultimately wasted. Visionary insight and dramatic change are possible—and we don't have to trek to a mountaintop monastery, starve ourselves, or join a cult to experience them.

As I will show you through the stories of people just like you, these 6 Questions That Can Change Your Life will teach you how to craft a set of clean, clear lenses, custom built for you. Through these lenses, you'll view your life—your identity, your place, your purpose—with a clarity and focus that may have eluded you in the past.

Explosive energy and the capacity for quantum change already exist, right there inside of you. These six questions will be your guide, helping you to embrace that energy and to channel it into changing your life.
