Make these powerful questions part of your daily ritual.
1. Did I work toward my goals today?
Successful leaders understand the importance of goal-setting in everything from long-term vision to short-term motivation. Focusing on your goals helps you to organize your actions and make the most of your ambition and aspirations.
2. What motivated me today?
Motivation is the force that keeps pushing you forward. It is your internal drive to achieve, produce, and develop–and it’s always to your benefit to pay attention to the things that feed your personal motivation.
3. What bad habits do I need to stop?
Your bad habits–and we all have them in some form–may be damaging your credibility and your business. It is well worth putting in the daily time and effort to overcome them and replace them with things that will serve you better.
4. Have I been the kind of person I want to be?
Character rules. You’re not born with the qualities that make up your character, but they develop as you go through your experiences, your failures, and your wins. Govern your sense of responsibility and responses to events to develop the character you’d like to have.
5. What mistakes did I make today, and what can I learn from them?
We all experience failures and mistakes; it’s how you respond that makes the difference. You can choose to see failure as proof of your inadequacy, or recognize it as an incredible learning experience.
6. What am I grateful for today?
There will always be bad days and good days, bad luck and good luck. Through it all, gratitude remains among the most useful tools you can have. It shows you what really matters and what’s important, and it keeps you level-headed and focused on what is important.
