Hi from Lee. After working on it for a while between other projects, I finallyfinished updating my book, Success is an Inside Job. We’re still working on the revised print edition, but I’m very excited to share with you that we’ve re-published the Kindle Version. (You can find it by clicking here).
I’ve been in the habit for so long that it’s become an automatic thing for me, but while I was working on the Success book, I was reminded of how vitally important it is to ask intelligent questions to find the answers I’m looking for and to solve challenges. It’s one of THE most beneficial habits I’ve picked up and has been crucial to the successes I’ve created in all areas of my life. Because it’s such a fantastic habit to get into, over the next few weeks, I want to share some short excerpts with you from Success is an Inside Job about How (and Why) to Ask Questions to Improve the Quality of Your Life. If you’re not already in the habit of asking yourself questions, you’ll be amazed at how beneficial this one simple act can be—how big of a difference it can make. Even if you already have this wonderful habit, I know it was great for me to refresh my memory. I hope you enjoy:
I know today that, if it hadn’t been for my father, I probably wouldn’t have realized the importanceof what I’m about to share with you. You see, every night at sundown after the livestock had been fed and the chores were done, my family would sit around our big oak table, with the smell of fresh-baked bread and pipe tobacco filling the room, and my father would ask my brother and me what we had learned that day. Then he would present us with hypothetical situations and ask how we would handle them. Although at the time it seemed like a useless exercise, today I realize it actually helped infuse me with an “en¬trepreneurial” thinking process. I learned to tap into my own creative problem-solving talents and rely on my gut instincts to overcome challenges. These exercises allowed me to develop a thinking process that would create the framework enabling me to become successful in making my dreams come true – a thinking process centered around asking questions and listening to my intuition and feelings.
The skills I developed from all those nights around the oak table have shown me a future brimming with opportunities for those having the courage to ask questions and seek new solutions. In fact, you now have the opportunity to create a life that is much more aligned with your own personal destiny – your deepest needs – a life that may well bring you far more satisfaction. So that’s the good news. It’s not that your “Past Dreams” didn’t come true; it’s simply time to conjure up a new dream, to do a little soul-searching to become clear on exactly what you want. Not what your parents wanted, not the “Dream” that has been passed down from generation to generation, but your own unique future that you can dream into being. You begin that process by asking questions.
You see, asking questions is a critical process. By asking questions, you can outline all the available choices and determine a host of possible solutions. Then, you can receive valuable information you might not have thought of if you hadn’t asked questions. The questions and answers will help you begin to develop strategies to take back your life and your personal power to create anything you want!
Next week I will expand on this idea and go into strategies to tap into the power of your brain. Stay tuned!
