By asking better questions...
Whether we realise it or not, our lives are a result of the types of questions we ask ourselves. Successful people are no more ‘lucky’ than their less successful counterparts, they simply use better questions and take more consistent, prolonged action.
We have within us, the answers to all of our problems and our brains are designed to answer every question we ask of it. However, the answers are only as good as the questions we ask, i.e. ask a rubbish question, you’ll get a rubbish answer!

“Why does this always happen to me?”
“Why does nothing ever work out right?”
“Why does nothing good every happen to me?”
“Why can't I ever seem to get a break?”
