4 Potent Questions to Crystallize Your Success in Life

 In Inspirational, Personal development

Consider, four potent questions, and how you answer them will crystallize your success in life. First, it all begins with a story.

There’s a young boy who, in sixth grade, had a difficult time in school. He figured that once he got to junior high, life would be easier. Then in junior high, he was only disappointed by the way things didn’t go as he had expected they would; his voice changed and he received poor grades. That was when he decided that life must get much better after high school. Then one day, just barely, he graduated high school. After high school, he realized he had to pay his own way, which made life that much harder.

When he married his special someone, life seemed to get a little bit better; but not before long, married life presented a different set of problems. Then children came, along with new demands of his time and energy. Life continued, day after day, year after year, in the same discouraging pattern.

Yet, he assumed that when he retired, the last years of his life would be grand. He would finally be able to be what he wanted to be and do what he wanted to do. Then, he retired, and as he sat on his favorite chair one afternoon, he reflected on his life. Tears came to his eyes as he thought about his sixth-grade experience and realized how much he had missed in life. As the years passed, his dissatisfaction with life continued, and his hope for a happy future faded.

The 4 Potent Questions

aaaaaaaaaaaWhat’s one thing little children do that can drive parents crazy? That’s right-they ask questions! They want to know why, why, why? Children are inquisitive, curious, and excited about life, so they ask questions to learn and grow. Adults are expected to have the answers. Too many adults lose their creativity and imagination for life. Here are the four potent questions about your life that have echoed in the minds of human kind through the ages:

  • Who am I?
  • Where am I Going With My Life?
  • How am I Going to Get There?
  • What Difference Does it Make, Really?

Most people ignore these questions. How you answer these questions determines your success in life. Why? Because you make deliberate positive choices about what you want. Not choosing leaves you living randomly, often negatively, and in a life of quiet desperation as Thoreau declared. Life is no dress rehearsal; it is more like “Saturday Night Live.”

WCW, Success is a sate of beingBy answering these potent questions you begin to choose that you are a success today. It’s a state of being not a destination or journey. Your answers and corresponding action will accelerate your career and personal achievement. You do not have to prove it anymore. Like an acorn that has the same DNA of a mighty oak tree, you have tremendous personal potential. There is no need to become someone you are not, only an adjusted focus to enhance your ability to step into who you really are. Virtually all self-help authors like Napoleon Hill, Earl Nightingale, Tony Robbins, Deepak Chopra, Marianne Williamson, Susan Cain and Denis Waitley and others, emphasize this similar dynamic success concept.

By believing you are a success now, you awaken an internal power and energy that propels you to a more fulfilling life.
