“Quality questions create a quality life. Successful people ask better questions, and as a result, they get better answers.”
John Koenig worked on Madison Avenue, writing ad copy for some of the biggest brands of the day. His encore career has been that of hypnotist, and John has brought the wisdom of years spent crafting language to influence people over to his work as a hypnotist. One of the ways he does that is through his “possibilities process,” which is a wonderful way of getting people to ask better questions of themselves so that they can come to new understandings. That’s what we talk about in this interview.
Because I’m human, I catch myself doing the very things that we discuss in this interview that I know I shouldn’t be doing. Every now and then I’ll ask myself, “Why is it so hard for me to lose weight?” or “What the hell is my problem?” Developing the awareness of when we ask these unhelpful questions, and replacing them with questions that will actually move us forward, is an important skill.
