Miracle questions can be helpful when you are trying to power through roadblocks or identify the direction of your truest dreams. Social workers and therapists around the world use miracle questions as tools to help clients solve problems creatively and positively.
These types kinds of questions help shift an individual’s perspective from one that is problem-centric to solutions-focused:
If you had a million dollars, what would you do?
If you woke up and no longer had to deal with ____, what would your day look like?
What would be a sign that you’re feeling 100%?
