10 Questions To Get The Truth

I can't stand when I ask people what they really want to do and they won't answer. They sit silently, thinking about their excuses for why they can't do what they want to do. They all have different excuses, and they won't tell me what they are, so I have to go fishing. Here are 10 questions I ask to get the real answer.

What would you do...

1. if you had a billion dollars? (Now money is no object.)

2. if your parents were completely supportive of any path you chose? (Now your parents can't make you do something.)

3. if your older sibling(s) weren't so successful? (Now you're not trying to live up to something you're not.)

4. if your friends weren't all going to work in finance (or another industry)? (Now you're not letting peer pressure pistol whip you.)

5. if we could all travel at the speed of thought? (Now you can live where you want and work where you want, no problem.)

6. if you had graduated from the best college in the world? (Now you're not paralyzed by a lack of the "perfect" brand--whatever that is.)

7. if you had gotten perfect grades in school? (Now you're not hung up on GPA.)

8. if you could start doing it tomorrow? (Now you're not worried about stress on your family or paying your bills during a transition period.)

9. if you had started doing it back when you wish you had? (Now you're not thinking it's too late start now.)

10. What would you do if you could do anything you wanted? (Because you can.)
