Focused Questions are the laser beams of human consciousness. It was Albert Einstein who said, "The important thing is to not stop questioning. Curiosity has it's own reasons for existing." One of the most important things you can do in your life is ask focused questions.

If you live your life continuously asking focused questions, you will constantly improve the quality of the questions which will improve the quality of your answers.

A metaphor I really enjoy is, "Life and business is like the game of Jeopardy. All the answers are there, you just have to come up with the right questions!"

The great Greek philosopher, Socrates, based his method of teaching on doing nothing but asking questions. He directed the student's focus so they would come up with their own answers.

Focused questions are the tools that allow our minds to build our dreams. They're the alarm clock that wakes up our full potential. The effectiveness of your life and the quality of your plans come from constantly asking highly effective, focused questions.

As an example ... What are your goals in the areas of time, finance, career, business development, prospecting, marketing, business presentation, team building (leadership) and technology? Are you WILLING to work through each of these areas within the next 30 days to come up with the best future for YOU?

When you analyze where your business comes from and what source of energy, money, time and thinking you invest in them, it will make you question whether you are using your resources wisely.

My vision for you is that you will be masterful in your marketing activities. You will gain and keep the edge in your chosen markets by focusing all of your activities on building client loyalty versus client satisfaction. That you will become a marketing wizard ... because you will have a deeper understanding than anyone else in your marketplace of what such loyalty requires.

You will earn the trust, admiration and support of an ever expanding base of clients.

Ask yourself, "What is my strategy, mindset, technique- and, most of all, my principles and approach to my business?"

The answer is not in the answer, it is in the question. Taking the time to analyze these questions, and many others you will come up with along your success journey, will give you a competitive advantage and greater leverage. You will get a greater return on your investment and your time.
