Want Success? Stop Asking the Wrong Questions!

Since questions are vital to your success to qualify a prospective prospect and to determine how you can fill what needs they have, it is also important you are not asking Moggollon Rim AZ bike trailyourself the wrong questions.


Many of us have asked ourselves, How can I make so and so do such and such? You can’t. as I mentions in a previous post you can lead a horse to water but you can’t make it drink. That being the case it is better for you to put your energy where it would do the most good, to achieve the success you must concentrate on what is within your control.


Asking whose fault it is, may seem to help you gain awareness of a situation, but in reality may make things worse.That question wastes time and energy, when it would be far more productive to concentrate on finding a solution instead of on hunting down the culprit  responsible.


How can I do this faster? For some jobs speed is the most important thing, like in emergency rescues, calf roping. In other jobs like, brain surgery, bomb making etc… you definitely want to slow down and take your time, so be careful with that question. Don’t confuse speed with efficiency. If you can do it quickly that is better, as long as you maintain quality, getting it done right is the main goal.


When working for yourself you may sometimes ask yourself. Do I really have to? The answer is no you don’t. You can go back to that dead end 9-5 job you hated.


If you find yourself asking yourself this question it is time to remind yourself of your “why”.

Having spent most of my adult life engaged in sales and marketing as well as a decade of preparing income tax returns for small businesses, individuals and real estate investors. Running your own business is not easy, you must utilize all the tools available to aid in your business development, I believe your personal development is equally important. I have for many years had knowledge and interest in small and medium sized businesses as it relates to allowable deductions, tax deferred exchanges and other tax treatments, I have also, for many years invested in books, tapes/cds for inspiration and motivation, so it seemed a natural fit for me to become involved in aiding in people in business development as well as their personal development.
