10 Questions Every Aspiring Entrepreneur Should Ask

1. If I could change one thing about myself that’s been holding me back, what would it be? 

This is a tough question since many of us are in denial when it comes to changing the habits that hold us back the most. Whether you are struggling financially, slightly overweight, or smoking cigarettes, deal with it as soon as possible. In other words, don’t settle for failure when you want success.

2. Did I do everything I could today to make tomorrow the way I want it to be? 

At the end of each day, you either rejoice or regret what you did in your day. If you’ve done everything you could today, tomorrow will always work itself out. This way, you’ll make every day count towards your success.

3. How would the person I would like to be do what I’m about to do?

What you’re basically asking is, “If I were in the year 2020, would I make the decisions that I’m making right now?”  This will allow you to behave like the person that you’ve been striving to be.

4. Who could have helped me today if I had only asked…? 

There isn’t a day that goes by where you couldn’t have asked for more help. Leverage your responsibilities by asking for help. It doesn’t really matter who you ask, just ask!

5. How would I act today if I knew that I would be getting what I want tomorrow? 

We all have a deep promise within us. Some of us just need faith to activate that promise. If you were 100 percent sure of your future, how would you act if you knew that everything that you wanted will come to fruition?
