What Would YOU do if you knew there was no chance of failure?

If you are going to ask yourself life-changing questions,

be sure to do something with the answers.

How often do you ask yourself good questions? Questions are a powerful method for fucusing your attention on something you want. And when you can keep you focus on the thing you want…. you can accomplish anything!

Questions can quickly shift how you feel about a situation.

For example asking yourself the question “Why is my life so difficult” only puts you in a place to think of all that’s difficult.

But if you ask something like “What would I need to do, be or have to create ease in an area of my life? – your mind immediately begins to shift.

Often the result is new ideas and a solution mindset, which results in answers to things that just a few minutes previous seemed out of reach.

Keep in mind that I’m not talking about any questions but questions that can be used to direct you thinking and help you get where you want to go.

 

A couple of great questions from Alan Zimmerman’s “The Payoff Principle” are;

What would you do if you could not fail?

What would you do if no one would say “no”.

A few more are;

Are you enjoying what you do?

Are you happy with where you are going?

When’s the last time you asked yourself a question like that and really took the answer to heart enough to make some changes in your life?

Some of the answers might not be comfortable. They often reveal that there’s something in your life you’re tolerating instead of living your life to the fullest.

Questions like “Is there something in your life that you secretely wish for?” can help you tap into some of those dreams you’ve put on a shelf.

Then following up with “What is one thing you could change to move towards it?”

How do you develop good questions?

Start by asking questions that stimulate reflection. Questions that cause you to think about the possibilities. Then formulate questions that focus on what’s possible and point you toward solutions.

How can you reframe the questions you ask yourself?

“If I had an hour to solve a problem and my
life depended on the solution, I would spend the first
55 minutes determining the proper question to ask,
for once I know the proper question,
I could solve the problem in less than five minutes.”
—ALBERT EINSTEIN
