“If you have to ask the question, you already know the answer.”
I asked a business attorney a question and the statement above was the answer. That answer is the best advice I have ever received. Ever.
Why? Because every time I seem to be struggling with something, thinking I don’t know the right answer or the right direction to take, I pause. I then examine what questions I am asking myself. Sometimes they are questions such as “Can I trust this person? Is it my ego that wants this or is it real intuition? Or, Do I want to work with this person or do I just want the money?”
Each time my questions have pointed me to exactly what I have avoided wanting to see. When I trust someone, I don’t ask the questions. When I am inspired to act, I don’t ask the questions. When I actively engage in a new client relationship, I don’t ask the questions.
Dr. Success Challenge: Examine what questions you are asking yourself. Do you now see what you have tried to avoid knowing?
