/101 Top questions everyone should ask

making choicesSo you want to become wealthy – yes? A key secret is to understand that almost everything in your life – especially if you want to create wealth – is about making choices. About making good choices. About making more choices. About making better choices. You make better choices when you ask better questions, and then realizing that the answer, no matter which way, is a choice – your choice. And the reason(s) – the why – can be your choice also. To demonstrate this I have prepared a list of the 101 top questions everyone should ask – and answer – about creating wealth. You should ask them. You should answer them. They will help you to forge a better, wealthy lifestyle.

A few key points before we begin, note the following secrets to wealth:

  • All the questions are phrased positively.
  • You should not allow any of the questions to have negative, restrictive answers.
  • Each of these questions, in one way or another – can drastically affect the quality of your life.
  • They all refer to an aspect of creating wealth.
  • Many of them should be substantiated with a reason – the “why“. 
  • The why is your reason for taking action.
  • All of these questions are personal. They are all about you!
  • You don’t need to answer them all straight away. It takes time.
  • It serves you well to at least ask these questions.
  • It doesn’t matter if you don’t have an immediate answer.
  • Just asking the question already changes the way you think.
