One of the fastest ways to find the solution to an issue or challenge you are facing is to ask the right questions.
The right question inevitably leads you to the correct answer.
Questions matter. In business, remarkable performers are brilliant at getting to the right question. The one that speeds them to the place they need to get to and offers them the missing piece they need to find. And in life, asking yourself a powerful question will allow you to step into a whole new set of possibilities that you may have missed while you were locked into an old way of seeing things. Like the lesson amidst a so-called “failure”. Or the opportunity that inhabits a setback.
Here are 5 Questions that I share with the clients I do leadership development work with. I suggest you write them down and then find some time today to answer them in your journal.
- Where am I playing small at work and in life?
- What would I do if I knew I could not fail?
- What am I resisting?
- What can I be grateful for?
- How do I want to be remembered?
And as you make this day extraordinary, I’ll leave you with a quote from Mark Twain:
“If everyone was satisfied with themselves, there would be no heroes.”
