Q1. If you had no chance of failure, what would you do? Think about it, be clear, be specific, if you had the knowledge, skills, contacts, opportunities and resources you needed, what would you do, and why? Focus on what you want not what you don’t want.
Q2. Who do you want to be? Not what others tell you, you should be or could be, but what makes you happy, doing what you like to do? Don’t follow the herd, and be like the masses – miserable, desperate & skint. No, focus on doing what makes you happy,
Q3. Are you prepared to break the rules? (Not the law), but rules! Mavericks can’t be mavericks by always following the rules, they need to think and do outside the box. Follow your rules, being what you want to be, and break through your own self limiting beliefs.
Q4. Are you afraid to fail? Don’t be. Real learning comes from our failures, our disappointments, for you can’t and won’t win all the time. Get over it, learn from your mistakes, and those of others. What IS the worse that can happen? Why worry about stuff that may not happen? See queston 2.
Q5. Do you listen to the Black Abbotts?” Ah but, it wont work!” “Ah but, you cant do that”. “Ah, but it hasnt been done before.” Reality checks are good, but don’t always listen to the skeptics, detractors, or naywayers, follow your gut instincts, and remember question 1.
Q6. Are you scared of hard work? Are you lazy, Do you prefer not to take responsibility for your own actions? Do you prefer to lash out, and blame others, remain in denial, or do you prefer to roll up your sleeves and if you cant find a solution, then create your own?
Q7. How do you demonstrate gratitude? How can you, and do you like to say thankyou? How do you like to pay it forward or give back? What’s the legacy you want to leave behind, in having answered the above, and put your own plan into action? Maybe you can start giving back now?
Now, what IS the next goal or objective that you want to achieve?
