Who? What?, How?, Where and Why?
Questions are usualy the most powerful part of any conversation: with yourself and others. You can be surrounded by answers and never know it until you ask the right questions. I'm all for the right questions in life and when it comes to having meaning in life and pursuing life goals, I've been asking questions for the past 13 years and have come up with answers that have helped me and hundreds of others personally and invarious careers and businesses. On to the questions...
People ask: "How Do I know which of all the things that
motivate me to focus on? There's a number of things I currently feel motivated about ,some of which I even failed at recently... How do I know the right thing? Do I change course?"
Many ask this question with many others not really knowing what to be motivated about because of the whirlwind of their daily lives and jobs. You need to stop in the midst of everything regularly, once a week, once a month..once in 6 months...the shorter the interval the better and ask yourself?
- What I have focused most of my energies and am motivated about right now, is it consistent with my life priorities and in line with my persisting thoughts,dreams and desires?
- Do I have the time or what time and changes can I make for things consistent with my life goals in my daily schedule? It's usually little changes that bring amazing results. Find them!
- If I live the way I live, doing what I am doing everyday, do I really see myself arriving at desired results,life goals or not? You will get a yes for some hopefully and a good deal of nos. Stop!!! If you do not do something and begin now by way of a plan with small changes, everything you've read above will be absolutely useless.
These are some of the first questions we need to ask ourselves and begin to make changes to discover and laser-focus our motivation and exponentially increase our fulfilment and results.
We spend less time being opportunists and more on being strategists at life. cut out the crucial 20% of our time (which eventually increases) on the right things.
