Start asking yourself these four questions, and then start investigating how your inner ‘core and insights’ could start providing answers to help transform your business!

1.What is the biggest mistake you made in the last one year that you warn others to not do?

In the last one year, you must have found yourself saying, “I’ll never do that ever again,” only to find yourself doing the exact same stuff just a short time later. The good news is, you’re not alone. Yes, and now you could warn others about it, so that they don’t do it!

Not Owning Your Mistake- Did you own your mistake in the last one year…You should have. The first thing you should do is own your mistake. Acknowledge it.

While people won’t admit they made a mistake, doing so is important, if you want to learn from the same. Admit. Take a deep breath. Apologize for it if the need be. Finally, keep folks informed that you’re working on a solution. So, the chain goes like this:


2. What is the one thing you do that makes you successful which your competitors and others are not doing or may not even know, if these exist?

What is your secret to success?

We are sure there are many factors. Time to find out that one factor that makes you stand out…Also the factor which even your competitors and others may not even be aware of.

3. What small daily & weekly habits do you perform that help add to your personal, financial and business success?

“The DNA of Success” is a heady cocktail of your daily and weekly habits that can help add to your personal, financial and business success.

Employing 6 Best Habits (Daily & Weekly)- Knowing that 8 out of 10 businesses fail in the first 18 months and only 4 percent make it to the 10-year mark, the daily and weekly habits you employ can quite literally make or break you. If you concentrate on building up a large majority of 6 best habits to have, you’ll all-but guarantee your long-term success.

But don’t expect to achieve personal, financial and business’s success overnight. It will take its sweet time. But as long as you persistently employ these daily & weekly habits, success will eventually come for sure.

4. Looking back at the last 12 months, what were the biggest needle movers which made the biggest impact on your business, finance and life?

Some people struggle without focus simply because they are not defining their needle movers. Some don’t have to struggle because they defined theirs. Time to know the biggest needle movers which impacted your business, finance and hence life, the most.


Asking the above 4 Questions can positively impact your prolificacy, productivity, creativity, happiness, and career trajectory like building solid habits and routines, thereby transforming your business and life.
