French philosopher François-Marie Arouet, known by his nom de plume Voltaire, elegantly suggested we focus on asking thoughtful questions: "Judge a man [or a woman] by his [or her] questions than by his [or her] answers" he said.
Voltaire is right. Asking the right questions is the best way to challenge ourselves. In Success Freak, I created a list of important questions for the reader to go through in every chapter. You can find a few examples here.
“A lifelong journey, a trip of a hundred miles, a lifetime commitment always begins with one tiny brave step in the unknown"
Questions like "What is the one thing you hope to accomplish in life that will make you most proud?", "How would you measure it?", "What would you say is your life’s purpose?" and "Is that purpose consistently guiding your decisions?" can be challenging to answer. Those are very personal, even somewhat intimate. We rarely dedicate time to reflect on these existentialist questions that prompt us to look deep inside.
A lifelong journey, a trip of a hundred miles, a lifetime commitment always begins with one tiny brave step in the unknown. That unknown might simply be a list of important questions we must answer before getting in motion. Then, and only then, do we know that we are moving in the right direction.
If you are still doubting yourself, get ready and follow the seven steps to becoming insanely successful.
