The Most Powerful Question You Could Ask

Jonah Larkin

One of my favorite things about coaching is when I ask a question and a client stops dead in their tracks.

You can almost see the gears turning in their head.

And one of my favorite questions to ask is this....

What is the most powerful question you could ask yourself right now?

Think about that for a moment.

I'm no fan of Tony Robbins but he has this wonderful quote that says "The quality of your life depends on the quality of your questions."

I don't know if that's always true, but I love the energy behind it.

The above question can be applied to anything.

Have a business problem, a relationship problem or a money problem?

No problem ;)

Ask, "What's the most powerful question I could ask about this problem?"

The great thing about this question is that it doesn't usually lead to a direct answer.  

It's merely the starting point for your inquiry.

It should lead to an even better and more specific question.

Go forth and try it and let me know how it goes for you.
