This Is the Most Important Question You Can Ask Yourself Today
“There always has to be a 'what’s next.'” Steve Harvey, Act Like a Success, Think Like A Success
Do you feel like your entire life is together, that it’s complete and that you’ve accomplished all that you set out to accomplish? Most folks will say that they’re nowhere near reaching the finish line, but for the rest of you… what’s next?
You see, you have to ask yourself “What’s next?” to propel yourself onto the next goal. That’s what gives you the motivation you need to get out of bed in the morning. It’s what drives successful people to be successful.
If you’ve stopped asking what comes next, you’ve stopped growing.
You can’t continue to ride on old coattails. Millionaires don’t stay millionaires by staying still. If you wrote a bestseller, you must keep writing.
Or singing, or composing, or whatever it is you do.
When you stop pursuing the dream, you take away your reason for getting up the next day.
You must have motivation to move forward, and your calling has to be strong enough to pull you out of your current circumstance. Otherwise, you run the risk of staying stagnant.
Part of asking ‘what comes next?’ is being open to it. If you’ve closed yourself off to new ways of looking at things or you’re stuck in your own rut and unwilling to entertain alternate paths, you’re no longer open. Closing yourself off can halt your forward momentum. You won’t be able to move onto what’s next because you’re stuck in your current situation.
When you achieve one dream, focus on another. And another after that. By constantly asking what comes next, you give yourself the push to go further, and that can take you far beyond where you ever imagined you’d be.
So, what’s next for you?
