What Would You Do If…?


Yesterday I was chatting with a buddy of mine who lives in Rio. I’ve known him for about 20 years now.

At one point, our talk turned to destiny, leaving a legacy and making an impact in the world.

Then, he hit me with a pretty interesting question.

He asked:

“What would you do if you had all the gold in the world?”

What a great question!

Have you ever asked yourself that?

So much of our life revolves around our activities around earning money because we need it.

What if we removed the “need it” part?

What would you do?

How would you invest your time and energy then?

Of course, the obvious “spend time on a beach” comes up quickly. Resting might be one of the first priorities on your mind at this point.

How about once you’re rested?


How about once you have everything and anything you may and may not want?

What would be next?

Questions are powerful. If I had to narrow down my entire coaching toolkit to a single tool, questions would have to be it.

Did you notice how I directed your entire mindset in this post with a series of questions?

And how the previous sentence was also a question?

And isn’t this one also a question?

Wow, we can’t seem to get out of asking questions, can we?

Questions guide without being directive. Build yourself a solid set of questions and you will make an unbelievable impact in people’s lives.
