4 Simple Questions to Ask Yourself That Will Supercharge Your Success This Year

Published

questions to ask yourself

You still got plenty of time to experience overwhelming success this year. You’ve made earth-shattering goals; this is the year you’ve told yourself you would make the leap and do something big. Maybe it was making an entrepreneurial move from your stagnant job or it may have been to simply supercharge your personal growth efforts. At any rate, you are stuck and do not know what to do.

You see potential entrepreneurial and investment opportunity openings, however, you remain in a state of uncertainty because of current events. Talking heads are saying the markets might tanks. This is where most people simply give up on their audacious goals and settle for what they have always experienced; life on Average Avenue. But no, not you, you are determined to experience great levels of success this year and beyond.  You are simply experiencing a delay in achieving your desired goal of success. Success will come to you if you remain the determined architect of your future. Don’t let your past define you, persevere. You must be deliberate in designing the future you desire.

Here are four simple questions, if asked and answered, will supercharge you to hit your desire level of success.

1. Where exactly do you intend to be at the end of the year?

We have a tendency to drift aimlessly through our days wondering how we will hit our goals. We see all of our goals as worthy efforts, however, what we end up with most of the time is a lack of clear direction. Just like building a house, a phased approach will allow you to realign your efforts towards a definite outcome. Definite outcomes have a definite date.

“Successful people do what unsuccessful people are not willing to do. Don’t wish it were easier; wish you were better.” – Jim Rohn

2Where should you put your resources?

A lot of times we tell ourselves that we don’t have the resources necessary to accomplish our goals, this in fact is very true. Your resources are finite. It is critical that once you determine your desired outcome, you should move to determine where you are going to put your energy and resources.

You should not seek to accomplish all of your targets at once, instead invest your time and energy on specific targets that will provide you the greatest momentum in realizing your desired outcome. Remember, all goals do not hold the same value.

3. How much time do you need to make your goal a reality?

Most people ask the question of how long will something take before it materializes. This is not the proper way to make your goals a reality. Instead, approach it from the angle of how much time do I need to make this a reality. You are imposing your will here on time. Because your desired outcomes have a definite date, this should drive you to take more aggressive action. Time is your enemy and you must take action to maximize your efforts. This might mean you are accomplishing more than one specific action at a time, which will expedite your results.  

“Don’t let the fear of losing be greater than the excitement of winning.” – Robert Kiyosaki

4. What do you do if your plans don’t work out?

The saying that no plan survives initial contact is very true especially when you are seeking to take aggressive action. With this in mind, it is critical to develop a plan that allows flexibility. What if you experience a huge setback, does this mean you should shift your focus to another goal, leaving your current work behind? Does it mean you will continue to invest your resources into seeing it through? Here, you are planning the “what if” scenarios to give yourself the greatest chance to succeed.  

So, there you have it, these are the four simple questions that you should ask yourself and answer if you are looking to supercharge your success this year. There is no telling what you will discover about yourself once your start focusing on these four questions. Many things you called goals might turn out to be distraction. Just like building a house, there are tradeoffs you must be willing to commit to in order to realize your success.
