In previous blog posts (here and here) we explored the power of good questions and how important it is to master it. I just came across this excellent paragraph in Ben Horowitz’ book ‘What You Do Is Who You Are’, in which he outlines Tony Robbins’ thinking on the matter:
The self-help guru Tony Robbins says the quality of your life is a function of the quality of questions you ask yourself. If you ask, “Why am I so fat?” your brain will say, “Because I am stupid and have no willpower.” Robbins’s point is that if you ask a bad question you will get a bad answer and you will live a bad life. But if you ask, “How can I use my vast resources to get into the best shape of my life?” your brain will say, “I will eat the highest-quality healthy food, work out like a professional athlete, and live to be one hundred and twenty.”Horowitz, Ben. What You Do Is Who You Are (pp. 156-157). Harper Business. Kindle Edition.
My best wishes for a great day ahead!
