This week's theme was chosen and written by one of our Athletes Julie Russo. Be sure to follow her on Instagram @julie.russo_ as she dives deeper into this week's theme "Questions Lead To Answers"
We’ve all heard the saying: “Ask and you shall receive!” But if you ask better questions, you’ll get better answers! It’s the common denominator of all highly successful people.
The average person asks questions such as “How do I get by?” or “Why is this happening to me?” Some even ask questions that disempower them, causing their minds to focus and find roadblocks instead of solutions.
Higher-level question will give you higher-level answers and the rewards that come with it. To get results, you can’t just ask the question once, you have to become obsessed with finding its greatest answer.
If you don’t ask questions, the answer is always no. As humans we have the ability to adapt, yet we allow ourselves to sit inside our comfort zone not willing to step outside the door. If you ask questions, you get answers. Good or bad. It is your decision what the next move is. You can Allow the bad answer to stop you in your tracks or have it to fuel your drive to succeed. Successful people ask questions. They are always searching for new knowledge. They are always learning, adapting.
The quality of your life isn't necessarily based on the quality of your circumstances, it’s mostly based on your mental and emotional filters that determine your perception of the outside world. These filters have been shaped by a number of factors – your culture, your socioeconomic status, your race, your religion, your values, your experiences. And they influence the stories you tell yourself about who you are, what you’re capable of, and what’s achievable or not. By rewiring the root of these filters, however, we can begin to change our habitual perception patterns. And one of the most effective ways of doing this is by asking ourselves better questions.
Find the courage to ask questions and express what you want. Communicate clearly so there is no misunderstanding. Make mistakes along the way. Know your worth. Always remember every accomplishment starts with the decision to try.
