One of the things I’ve always enjoyed doing is coaching others. I love sitting down with them and asking questions to help them figure things out or reach their goals. What distinguishes a great coach (of any kind), or even a great friend, is the questions they ask.
You’re probably familiar with some of the most popular questions being asked today. Questions like “how can I make more money?” “how can I get more fans on Facebook?” and “where can I get more clients?” Now, these can be good questions, but only if you’ve already answered the truly important questions. Questions like: “what do you stand for?” “what kind of example do you want to share with the world?” “what’s your vision?” and “what kind of contribution do you want to make in this world?” Once you can answer these questions you’ll know how to better answer the other questions.
Why? Because there are literally millions of ways to make more money, but not all of them will fit in with the business you’ve created. There are millions of people in the world but not all of them are right to be your clients. Which is why it’s so important to know the foundation of your business before trying to build anything. If you build before you’ve got the foundation, people won’t come, and if they do, they won’t stick around.
Here are some other great questions you can consider asking to not only improve your business, but also your life:
~What do you want more of in your life?
~If you were to fully live your life, what is the first change you would make?
~What is one step you can take today towards reaching your goal or goals?
~Is your attitude an asset or a liability for you?
~Are you intentional about creating new memories with your significant other?
~Who has impacted my growth in a positive way?
~Am I playing to win or playing not to lose?
~What reasoning, excuses and stories do I need to release to win?
~What have I already created that I can leverage?
~What practices would allow me to have more fun in my business and life?
