When you are in the creative process (which is always, by the way) you are asking for your creation, essentially. You are thinking about it, wondering about it, contrasting it with what you have now. The next thing to happen is the introduction of a rich idea, or insight, to your mind. It may be that someone delivers the idea to you, or you may have an inspired idea come to you in your thoughts. Once that has happened the next important thing for you to do is: ASK GOOD QUESTIONS! Your ego (which thinks it already knows everything so doesn’t embrace new ideas very well) will begin to tell you why your new idea won’t work. Often times it whispers so low that you end up dismissing your rich idea before you even know it! So get into the habit of asking yourself empowering, forward-moving questions to bring that rich idea into fruition.

For example, let’s say that you are asking for new clients for your tennis instruction business. You are thinking of all the youngsters who would love to learn tennis, how good it feels when they grasp the concepts you are teaching and *BAM* the idea comes to you to call Susana Vasquez, an old friend of your sister’s who now works at a private school nearby. Immediately, your ego says: “She won’t remember me.” Then, “Those children can’t learn tennis, they have dyslexia.” Then, “They have tennis courts already, they probably have an in-house instructor.” Naturally, you are ready to bag the whole idea.

Now, your work is to ask good questions. Like, “Will she take my call or will I need an introduction from my sister?” And, “Do dyslexic children need extra attention and can I learn more about that to serve (no pun intended) them better. And, “What if their in-house instructor wears many hats and wants to give up the tennis part?”

Any of these questions will keep you moving forward. The first set stop you dead in your tracks.

So think of your inspired ideas as precious gifts and it is up to you to utilize them to their fullest before dismissing them. And you do that by exploring their possibilities with good questions.
