“Sometimes questions are more important than answers.”- Nancy Willard

Ask a thousand questions.

Don’t accept the status quo.

Change is life and life giving.

Embrace change and you will soon see that the real answer is in the question.

Begin to ask questions that challenge the status quo in your life.

These questions will create change towards the realization of your goals.

Be ambitious. Have goals, aspirations, and dreams. Stretch, commit, and be willing to take risks. Always be willing to re-invent, re-work, and re-create. If it were easy, everyone and their dog would be doing what you want to do.

Be adaptable. If you cannot adapt to the continual upheavals in your life and business, you will be doomed. You have two choices and your choices will always determine the outcome good, bad, or indifferent. You can either stay and adapt or leave but do not leave until you fully understand that your personal contribution did not add to the upheaval. If you leave without carefully analyzing the process that led to the lack of success, you will only be kidding yourself. Nothing will change in your next venue so be anal about being integral with yourself.

Be resilient. When I was 12 years old, I swam the lake in Watrous, Saskatchewan. This lake has very high sodium, magnesium, and potassium salt content as it is a lake onto itself and provides swimmers with the ability to float without any effort. You probably couldn’t drown if you wanted. Be resilient like that lake. Be buoyant, push upward, recover quickly, and get back to the business of working towards your goal.

Be resolved. When there are issues that cause you to derail or immobilize you, stop, think, and create other possibilities that are already there for you. These obstacles will cause you to think on a deeper level and discover hidden solutions that would have never surfaced for you.

Continually ask the hard questions that ultimately lead to the health of your psychological house.

Carpe Momentum.
