Raise your hand, empower knowledge, and leapfrog your own self
Three little letters. Ugh. Wow. Dam.
Readers ask which book of the Repossible series is the “best” or which was the “hardest to write.”
I’m a pretty laid-back kind of guy. I take the slow train. I’m patient.
I don’t like the idea of making “the hard book the first book” but I don’t see a way around it.
I thought Create could be first, or maybe Decide but Ask was like that festering wound that won’t go away until you get it treated or worse, that piece of popcorn kernel stuck in your teeth the ENTIRE movie and all you can think about it removing it.
Yes, Ask if painful like that.
Annoying, little, and it won’t go away until you address it.
You have to ask the question.
“What am I supposed to ask?”
I hear you. That’s yet another difficult part of this. Later on, we’ll talk about asking for help and even daring to ask for help from others but first it’s going to get even nastier, dirtier, and more painful.
Yeah, I know. Sorry about that.
You need to ask yourself.
Stuff like, oh, I don’t know, let’s toss around some questions:
- Who am I?
- What is my purpose in life?
- Why was I placed on the planet?
OK, too much too soon?
Let’s take it down a notch.
- What can I do today to make tomorrow better?
- How can I be stronger so I become stronger to help those around me?
- If I do A, what are the chances of B actually happening and the risk of C happening first?
Remember me? I’m that light-hearted guy. I’ll prove it.
- Should I put “Oud Amsterdam” or parmesan on my popcorn?
- Should we do nothing this weekend or truly absolutely nothing?
- Is this pizza still fresh enough to eat?
So many questions. Maybe not so many answers.
But we have to ask the questions–we have to ask the question.
It’s hard. It can be no fun at all. It’s easier to just avoid it.
“Can’t we just skip to an easier topic? Something more lively like Spark or Play?”
See what happened there? A question was asked. It always starts with a question.
Here, I’ll give you an easy one:
Are you ready?
- Possible: avoid
- Impossible: answer
- Repossible: ask
