About the Book

In Ask Yourself, Mike Parker, author, speaker, and coach, has created an inspiring, uplifting, and fun guided journal like none you have ever seen before. Your answers to these questions will take you on the most inspiring journey of self-discovery. The beautifully designed interior provides space on each page to write down your answers, thoughts, and reflections. There will be questions you want to take your time on and savor the memory with lots of details and emotion. There will be other questions that might just require a few sentences and some that you will want to leave for another day. There is no rush. There are inspiring questions that will fit with those times in our life when we have at best a minute or two to spare, and there are questions for those times when you want to relax, enjoy, and savor those emotional memories that take you to the best moments in your life.

Ask Yourself is meant to help you enjoy life more abundantly by finding inspiration in the best of times and people from your past, present, and future. This journal will guide you into a deep dive of your own personal memories, which will allow you to savor each and every one of them better than you ever have before.

Ask Yourself will help you create a list of the most meaningful, inspiring, and loved memories, thoughts, and people in your life. When you’re done, keep it close by, carry it around; it will serve as a reminder of the best of times in your life and a source of inspiration. Maybe pick a day each month and read through some of your answers, be whisked away to that moment, and enjoy the memories that have made you the unique person you are.

As you work your way through this inspiring journal, be ready to laugh, smile from ear to ear, enjoy positive emotions, relive your many accomplishments, and be reminded of your healthiest relationships. There is no better tool to help you with personal reflection of the most inspiring times of your life. Have fun, Ask Yourself, remind yourself, and savor your answers.
