Do You Use This Smart Little Strategy to Create a Better Business and a Better Life?

Do you want to make more money in your business right now? Do you want more time to spend with your family? Do you want to take more overseas trips or have 3 months off work? Do you want to follow your passion but don’t know how?

Well there is a very simple way you can achieve this.

Just ask!

I know, I Know, I hear you … there is a whirlwind of comments and criticisms coming up in your head right now that you want to throw at me.

But just hear me out. Because the powerful, yet very simple technique I am going to share with you has made me stacks of money, has seen me go on numerous overseas trips over the last 5 years with my family, has allowed me to achieve my dream life, has provided me with a happier and more fulfilled life, and has helped me to work out how I can live that magical balanced life of fitting in work, family, friends, health, fun … into the limited time in the day.

This one smart strategy has helped me to create a better business
and a better life for myself and my family.

You see, what I am talking about here is asking yourself directed questions. Have you heard of this concept before? Well if you haven’t, here is what I am talking about.

A directed question is a question that you ask of your subconscious mind that you do not expect an answer from straight away.

For example, the question “what street do I live in?” This is not a directed question because your logical brain can answer that straight away. It has a definite answer. On the other hand, “What is the most productive task for me to do today to make the most money possible?” is a directed question.  It is a question that is being asked of your subconscious mind to work on and to answer at a later time.

I heard about this technique about 8 years ago now from one of my multi-millionaire mentors, but it wasn’t until 3 years ago that I started to consistently use this technique and it has absolutely changed my life.

It is actually what every successful person does, whether they know they are doing it or not. Some people will just naturally ask directed questions of themselves without even knowing it.

Here are some more directed questions to give you some inspiration:

  • How can I make $5000 more this month?
  • What is the best way to start my day?
  • How can I energize myself today?
  • How can I spend more time with my family?
  • How can I go on a 2-week trip to Fiji in the next 6 months?
  • How can I exercise more and enjoy it?

Have you ever been in a situation that you thought you couldn’t get out of and you were so scared and petrified of what was going to happen if you didn’t come up with a solution? Well I sure know I have, plenty of times!  Did it ever get to the point where you would collapse on the table in a big frazzled mess and scream:

“What can I do to fix this?”

What happened? Did you find an answer in the end? I know when I have been in this situation, a little after I have asked the question, out of nowhere I get all these ideas that just pop into my head that have been there all along that I can use to solve the problem. To me, it really feels like magic.

So now I don’t see problems anymore, I only see challenges that need a solution, and when I have one of those challenges I just ask a directed question. I have faith that the answer will come, not straight away, but it will come in the next few days, and 99% of the time it does come, just like magic.

I ask myself a directed question nearly every night before I go to bed. That way my subconscious mind can work on it over night while I am peacefully sleeping. Usually within a few hours of waking up in the morning I have an answer, sometimes even 2 or 3 answers to the question I asked the night before.

This little exercise has created some outstanding results for myself and ultimately given me a better business and a better life.

The great thing about this is it is not only a powerful technique that you can use in your business, but in everything you do. I use this technique all the time, for my business, for my family, for my health, for my life.

So just ask a directed question. Try it and see what magic answers pop up in your life. Then write a comment below with your stories of what happened. I would love to hear your stories and your experiences of what this technique has done for you, and I will personally read every one of them.

You will be surprised and amazed at the solutions and magic that arises in your life by asking a directed question. Try it, use it and it may just help you to have a better business and a better life.
