For true success ask yourself these 4 questions: Why? Why not? Why not me? Why not Now?James Allen
I first heard these questions from a podcast by Jim Rohn. It really open my eyes and change my perspective towards my life. You see, I always wanted to be a trainer and a speaker but things didn’t go the way as plan. I did got a job as a corporate trainer but in the end, the company arranged me to a small store for many, many months. I was so depress and I thought of giving up. But when I heard these questions asked by Jim Rohn, it give me a push in my life, to reshape my reason and purpose. And today I would like to share a little bit with all of you.
Well, we all want to be successful in the future, to live in our dream and to achieve our goals in life. To be able to live a comfortable life and spending time with our love ones and making our world a better place. However, just before any of that, according to James Allen, we need to ask ourselves these 4 questions.
The First question is WHY?, Why do we want to be successful? Why do we want to see how far we can go? Why do we want to see how rich we can become? Why do we want to reach our dream? Why is it so important to live the life we want? The list of ‘why’ can go on and on… to truly understand ourselves in a deeper level on why these things are important to you.
The Second question is the answer to the first question is WHY NOT? When I first heard this, it stumble upon me. It gave me the courage to go on to live my dream as I asked myself, ‘Why not see how far you can go as a speaker? Why not see how successful we can become? Why not see how far we can go? Why not see how rich we can become? Why not try reaching our dream?
The Third question is WHY NOT ME? Why not you yourself are the one reaching your dream and not just watching others doing it? All of us have the potential to become the best version of ourselves. Its been to long we have been seated in our life while watching everyone else succeeding, today, why not just ask yourself, why not me? You too are able to become successful and achieve your dream.
The Forth and last question is WHY NOT NOW? Arthur Ashe said ‘Start with where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can. We don’t need to wait till we get enough finances, good network, or till we get a new job, a college degree, etc… we can simply start with what we are right now. A lot of time we waited far too long, and eventually regret in life for not doing it. Start writing that book, start implementing the ideas in your head, start exercising again, start picking up your passion again, and START IT TODAY…
