The Power of Questions

Real Estate Agent with Realty One Group # S.0190863

I find that to really achieve great success, one must encounter failure. In failure, we encounter pain. To avoid pain, we must ask questions of how to avoid that failure again. Those answers are the keys to great success.

After all, when someone only succeeds, they can never appreciate success. Thus, I ponder back to questions.

I ask people I encounter, "What did you learn today?" After all, I can always use what they learned (even from their failures) to create more knowledge (and success) for myself.

I also like to immediately share what I have learned on my own. Why? Because before you can truly teach something, you must learn it first. SO, as I share what I learn, I accept feedback and questions and they help me refine my lesson.

This is another reason why I love to coach people of different professions and backgrounds. Even when I teach "the same old thing" their unique questions help me see the lesson in a whole new way.

It’s always good to ask questions to let yourself be vulnerable to learn, but you don’t know because you don’t know what you don’t know because you don’t know that you don’t know it, if that makes sense.

Asking questions and then truly listening to the answers is a great way to improve ourselves and our relationships.

Rocky I have a PHD in mistakes and failure.  Each one has been a learning opportunity, and rarely repeated.

Hi Rocky- I am a huge believer in asking questions (just ask Larry). I think the more inquisitive you are, the more you will learn and grow.

Good information!  How and what questions are the core of active listening and essential to good communication skills.
