A few friends of mine would make fun of me saying I asked too many questions. ‘Questionnaire’ is what they’d call me.
I don’t always need to have the full information but enough for me make an informed decision; after all my brain works, why should I leave all the decision making to someone else especially when it impacts me?
I made a decision to do things completely different and set a goal for completion at end of 2019. To achieve it will require a different version of who I have been to date.
So I started asking myself questions, questions about what I would need to do, the knowledge I need to have, the places I need to be in, the people I need to talk to, the time frame it needs to be done in, the money I’d need to invest, what I’d need to invest in, the mind set I need to have, the practices I need to change, the ones I have to adopt, what I have to cut, and so on. And then I answered them.
I pushed myself to think past the confines that I am used to and this process has put me in a completely different headspace, and for the things I did (do) not know, I research, I study, I apply it.
Too often we think others know so much more than we do and completely undervalue the wealth of knowledge, skill and experience we do have or have access to. Don’t.
Ask questions, don’t be a zombie that follows the status quo. Challenge yourself and it might surprise you in realising what you know or even what you don’t know and now know that you need to.
If you want to live a life that is completely debt free, ask the questions, do the work.
If you want to live on a beach in a tropical country, ask the questions, do the work.
If you want to have £100,000 in 1 year, ask the questions, do the work.
If you want to buy your first property, ask the questions, do the work.
If you want peace, ask the questions, do the work.
You get my drift.
It’s not about knowing everything, it’s starting with what you know that gets you closer to where you want to be; whether it’s dealing with heartbreak, making a large purchase, starting a business or having a healthy relationship with your partner.
