* The Unlock Your Superpowers Manifesto is being released very soon. If you want a sneak peek at the first section, please fill out this 5 min survey.
Great questions are so much better than great answers because they help us dig within to find out what we truly want to happen.
When you ask yourself a tough question and take the time to answer it, you learn how you got to that answer and why it matters.
For example, if someone hands you a great solution to your problem, you’ll have a harder time implementing it and getting great results because you won’t understand the "why's" until after you are done working through the solution.
Sometimes just asking a question to a friend or expert can help us understand more about ourselves. Their answer can help us create a more fulfilling journey.
One of the most profound questions is a very simple one.
Why am I choosing to do this task or project?
When you understand your "why", it’s easier to connect to your work, and when frustrations or obstacles get you down, you can remind yourself of your "why".
I do this through my writing. I ask myself tough questions that I would like an answer to, then craft my answer in a blog post. It’s how Work Happy Now got started.
Earlier in my life, I was mostly unhappy with brief periods of happiness. I struggled through depression, bad jobs, and bad relationships.
Through great questions, I began to uncover what made me happy. As I became happier, I wanted others to become happier too. I’m far from perfect, but I’ve learned a lot since launching Work Happy Now back in 2008. And I want to share that learning and knowledge with you.
I’m creating a live Q&A on Facebook on Thursday, April 24th at 9pm ET (6pm PT) where I can answer any questions on this post about how to Unlock Your Career Superpowers. I also hope to create a live webinar soon.
During the FB Q&A, you might ask me:
- How come my boss doesn’t appreciate my superpowers?
- How do I use more of my superpowers at work?
- I just lost my passion completely and have no idea on how to get it back. Help?
- Why do you use the word superpower instead of strengths?
- How come I have 6 toes and can I turn this into a superpower?
I’ve helped thousands of people unlock their superpower and I would like to help you too!
Oh, and when you join in, you’ll have a chance to win a free “Unlock Your Superpowers” coaching session. You’ll also find out when the manifesto is going live.
Sound like fun?
Good. Then let’s unlock your superpowers together. Join us on the Work Happy Now Facebook page this Thursday night at 9pm EST (6pm PST).
