5 Questions to Catapult out of "Stuckville" and Into Massive, Focused Actionby Melanie Strick
Got you thinking didn’t I. That’s the power of a question. So really, what would you be doing differently if every day you got up and went about your business as if you were already a millionaire?
Most people who come to me for coaching eventually realize that they have stayed stuck because they ask themselves “disempowering questions.” When you ask yourself a question, you train your brain to answer a certain way. If you keep asking the same question, you will often keep getting the same answer.
Do some of these questions sound familiar to you?
How will I ever get out of debt?
Can I really ever achieve my dream?
Where will I ever find someone who wants what I sell?
How come everyone else is making more money and getting “there” faster than me?
How come I can’t get this all done?
Each of these questions is totally and completely disempowering. And the answers you get when you ask these questions will most likely keep you thinking small.
Want to know a MASSIVE success secret? Start asking yourself new questions and you will immediately catapult forward into powerful solutions.
A few years ago I got really stuck around my finances. I was frustrated and fearful that I might have to claim bankruptcy. I kept asking myself "How will I ever get out of debt?" Luckily, I had a mentor who infused a new way of solving financial problems. She said: "If you were already a millionaire, how would you solve this problem?" Boy, I started thinking about leverage, about different funding sources, about all kinds of options I never thought of before. Within 5 days I had a whole new plan of action with an option that had been in front of my nose the whole time. I just hadn’t asked myself the right question before.
Ready to catapult forward in your own life? Here are some questions to start asking yourself now:
"As an excellent money manager, what do I need to do differently?"
"What is the Return on Investment for (your project/idea/opportunity) that will align me with MY priorities?"
"Who do I need to be to work less and achieve more (freedom, results, etc.)"
"As a millionaire business owner, where would I take my company next?"
"In order to play my biggest game ever, who do I need to surround myself?"
Here is my coaching challenge for you. Write this down right now because this process could change your life in a matter of days. For the next 7 days, every morning wake up and ask yourself one of the above questions. Or create a positive question of your own for the situation you are stuck on. I guarantee that you will start to become aware of new possibilities – maybe that have been right in front of your nose. =-)
Go for it! And be sure to celebrate your new successes!
