2. “Who do I want to be?”
Yes, the right question you should be asking yourself is who do you want to be, not what. Most people get it wrong by asking what they want in life. Knowing what you want to achieve is a good idea, but if you are not transforming yourself to become the right person, you will never attract the results you want to you.
In order to achieve the success/results you want, you need to become the right person. For instance, if you want to run a top tennis player, the only way to do so is to equip yourself with the skills. Without the skills, there is no point to talk about becoming the best tennis player.
And it is through becoming the person worthy of the success you want can you achieve the results. This is why you need to know who do you want to be, not what.
3. “Do I enjoy how I spend my time now?”
Do you like how you spend your day? If your answer is yes to the above question, it means that what you do is something that you love, and you are passionate about it. If your answer is a no, you may want to reconsider what you do.
There is no point to work on something that you don’t like. You should spend your time working on things that you’re passionate about. When you love what you do, only then you can perform better and do great work out of it. Without passion and the love for what you do, you will never perform at your best.

4. “Who do I spend the most time with?”
Answering this question is important because you become who you spend the most time with. Thus, if you are spending most of your time with other positive and successful people who you aspire to become, then great. You should continue to do so.
However, if you are spending most of your time with people who are negative, who complain a lot, and your conversation is mostly around other people, then I suggest you spend less time with them.
Energy is contagious. And when you spend time with negative people, gossiping about other people, you will be affected and become a negative person too.
5. “What do I think about most of the time?”
Take a minute and think about this question now, what do you think about most of the time? Do you think about your career? Do you think about finding a new job? Do you think about how boring your work is going to be? Or do you think about your goals and dreams?
Most people are not living a proactive life because they are not conscious of their thoughts. They live a reactive life and respond to whatever comes to them.
Therefore, take control of your life by taking charge of what you think about most of the time. Switch your thoughts to think about your future. Do the planning. Constantly review your goals and practice positive affirmations to get back your focus.
6. “What is my biggest fear?”
Do you know what is your biggest fear or the number one obstacle that is blocking your way? If you want to quit your job to start an online business, but your biggest roadblock is that you have no idea how to do it, you can interview those who have done it. Read and learn from other people.
The key is you must first identify your roadblock or fear that is stopping you. When you know what is holding you back, you can work on the solution. Hence, be aware of your challenges. What is holding you back from reaching your goals?
