It doesn’t matter if you are struggling with procrastination, anxiety, depression, anger, etc. This works because it sets you on the fastest road to successfully fulfilling your goals.
When I’m coaching people, I help people get results fast by teaching them to ask 4 questions back to back and in order. Define the answer to each in 3-6 words. Don’t spend too much time on it. The key is the determination that you are capable and willing to pursue your goals.
Question #1: What’s My Goal?
Question #2: Why Is This Goal Important To Me?
Question #3: How Will I Cause Myself To Struggle In The Pursuit Of This Goal?
Question #4: When I Begin To Struggle, How Can I Overcome That Struggle?
I’m going to learn spanish
It’s important so I can speak to people on the street when I visit Mexico.
I’m going to struggle with this goal because I won’t feel like putting in the practice to get good at spanish.
I can overcome that by making the initial practice sessions small, engaging, and at a consistent time every day.
If this doesn’t motivate you, then you’re facing 1 of 2 issues: Either you’re not confident in your ability OR you don’t care about your goals. So… if this doesn’t enhance your motivation, should you really be pursuing that goal?
