What if you no longer had any problems with your business? Does that mean you wouldn’t have challenges to consider and changes to make? No, it doesn’t. It’s changing the way you look at a situation. To overcome problems you have to begin to recognize them as possibilities.
We’re taught that the right way to do business is to be very rational. You have to consider all the facts and figures and calculate your decisions. Everything has to be thought through based on what you’ve already done or chosen or what you’ve concluded is the way business should be. When you function that way, there isn’t room for something greater. Problems are difficult or impossible to overcome because there’s a limit to the choices you’re willing to make.
Overcoming problems requires going beyond the points of view you have about them and the limited solutions you’ve decided are available. It’s not choosing based on what’s already been done; it’s becoming aware of the possibilities. The way to do this is to ask a question.
A true question is something you don’t already know the answer to. It gets you out of trying to get it right or avoiding getting it wrong. You ask so that you can get the awareness of what you know and what else is possible.
You can look at any element of your life right now and ask, Is this working for me? Then just acknowledge if it’s a yes or a no. It isn’t about making sense or fitting into a box of rationality. Asking questions allows you to know that you know beyond any justification or judgment.
To begin overcoming problems in your business before they even show up, start asking everyday, Who are what can I add to my business today that will create more ease? When you’re willing to be aware that there is more that can contribute to your business, you’re no longer trying to fix problems based on what is; you’re inviting the possibility of what can be.
Choosing to create your business this way may not be comfortable. It will, however, allow you to create something that’s never existed before. Questions not only give you access to greater possibilities, they’re what’s required to have the success you truly desire.
When problems show up and there are solutions that have worked in the past or you’ve seen work for others, ask If I choose this will it actually work for me and my business now? What else can I choose here? Your awareness is all you require. Trying to figure out why or how is being rational and is based on conclusions that don’t create anything greater. To overcome problems, you have to be willing to acknowledge possibilities beyond what makes sense.
Whether in regards to business, relationships, our bodies, or anything else, this whole world is constantly defining things as problems. To overcome this, you have to willing to go beyond how the rest of the world is doing it. Problems are rational. They’re based on facts and figures and judgments. You can’t do rational and create something greater.
You can start looking at every problem and asking, What is the possibility here? If you no longer focused on trying get it right but rather used your knowing to overcome anything and choose what actually works, how much more successful could you be in all aspects of your life?
A problem is just a point of view. What if your business didn’t have any more problems? How outside the box are you willing to be to have a successful business based on possibilities?
