If you don’t ask these two questions, you can expect to fail. One of them will help you think bigger. The other one will help you move forward.
The question to think bigger
There’s a question children ask incessantly. They ask it so much that it can drive us adults absolutely crazy.
It’s a simple question but it packs of powerful punch. The question is:
Kids have a certain natural curiosity and a sense of wonderment about the world around them. It’s one of the secrets behind their creativity.
Yet we seem to lose it quickly. In fact, research shows that we lose most of our creativity by the time we leave the first grade.
We need to learn to ask “Why?” all over again. Only there’s not much to learn.
It’s more a state of being. But as adults, we have to begin with a state of consciousness.
We need to make asking “Why?” a habit. It won’t happen overnight. But you can develop this practice day by day.
What in your world demands asking “Why”?
The question to move forward
However, there’s another question which is just as important. In fact, it may be more important. Ask:
What do you really want to do with your life? What’s holding you back?
Why not ask yourself “Why not”?
Why not go for it? Why not try? Why not just do it?
Why not stop regretting? Why not start living?
Why not give up the grind? Why not pursue your passions?
Most people are driven by fear. So ask yourself “Why not” so you really start to understand what you’re afraid of.
Many people tend to magnify the negative possibilities. They quickly get too scared to try to do anything to make their lives better.
People who reach BIGG success understand the negatives. They quickly work to minimize the negatives so they can take action without much risk.
