Questions to Ask Yourself Before Starting Anything

If you are anything like me, you might be an expert at setting shallow and fear based goals.

Yup, I am guilty of it too.

Thinking that, once I lose those stubborn 5 pounds, I am FINALLY going to have the confidence to schedule that photo shoot and have new photos for my business taken.

And believing that when I hit the seven figure mark, I am going to have it all figured out and life’s finally going to be as easy breezy as all those online business megastars have been promising me all these years.

If only everyone would FINALLY get just how important my business is to me, I’d be confident enough to put myself out there in a bigger way!

Blah, blah.

I call BULLSH!T on that.

We could go on rambling all day about how we need stuff FIRST in order to live our lives to the fullest and talk ourselves into actually believing that those outer circumstances are going to be the key to our happiness.

Today, I have a new concept for you: What if kick-a$$ inner game was what creates amazing outer circumstances? And not the other way around?

So let me invite you to a pre-work ritual that we can do before sitting down and starting saving the world each day. Let’s remember what our work truly is aimed at and what we sincerely believe in.


Pick and choose a couple of questions of your liking and then write down the answers in your notebook.

What do I love about my life today?

What am I grateful for today?

What am I celebrating today?

What is my vision for the world?

What is my purpose in this life time?

What do I have to do today to bring my best out into the world?

How can I love even more deeply today?

What’s most important for me to accomplish today?

How do I wish to move through this day and my schedule?

Who do I want to be today?

How can my current state of mind be of benefit to my work today?

What’s the reward for achieving my goals today?


The magic of this exercise is that it helps you drop deeply into yourself and connect with the WHY of your business before setting out to do anything at all.

It’s like screaming to the Universe: “This is important. I am here and I am ready to serve. Use me for the highest good of all.”

The clearer we are about our purpose and the way we want to serve, the better the Universe can support us in that. Our strong integrity and grounded-ness will be a magnet for everything that we need in order to bring our vision for the world into reality.

We manifest from the inside out and not the other way around. Our inner game is being reflected in the outer world, so the key is to organize our insides in the way that we want our outer life to look like.

What’s your favorite question from this ritual? And what is your answer?

Let me know in the comments!
