One Question to Ask When You Are Unsure What to Do

One Question to Ask Yourself

We all have moments in our lives, in our careers and in our relationships when we are faced with tough decisions. We may be wondering if we should change a major direction in our own life. We may have a client that needs exceptional counsel or advice. We may wonder how best to support a family member or co-worker.

Want to be assured of making the best possible decision? Here’s the One Question to Ask:

Given the situation that I am faced with, What would a great leader do?

Here’s why this question is so important.  It takes us out of our own excuses and challenges us to become the best that we really can be.  It elevates us above our own personal circumstances and provides an element of objectivity.  Here’s how:

  • It challenges us to to examine our values and compare them with higher values. It inspires us to align ourselves with how our best selves could act.
  • It reinforces the concept that we must not only come up with a plan but execute the plan.  It’s not enough to just think about what we might do but we must also follow through, even if it means taking imperfect action.
  • It inspires us to be all that we can be by comparing our actions to someone else who is a role model for greatness.  It challenges us to stretch outside of our own comfort zone and crushes our excuses.

So the next time you feel that you are at a road block in any area of your life- career, parenting, relationships etc., instead of asking what should I do, ask yourself;  what would a great leader do right now?

Then do it.

Be the greatest leader in your life.

# 1 Finding Your Why in Difficult Times




I was at a turning point in my business in deciding which direction to go.  I needed some focus and inspiration.  Fortunately I was connected with Lynne Watts and Dream Achiever Coaching.  Through a few individual coaching sessions and her informative videos I learned how to change my mindset about “selling” and promoting my business.  I also gained clarity on direction and uncovered a business model that would work best with my current phase of life.  I now have greater clarity to move forward and have already landed my first client of the year!  Lynne is positive, encouraging, and is great at helping you find the clarity and inspiration you need to move to the next level!  I highly recommend Lynne’s coaching packages!~Sandra Abdalian
