Ask better questions and you get better answers.
A lot of people are asking questions that tell me they are focusing on problems. Instead of asking questions that are focused on solutions. Focusing on problems is the wrong mindset to have.
So as you can see it's important to control what you focus on. How do you control what you focus on? I alluded to it above, by asking better questions.
The questions you ask yourself control what you focus on.
The process of thinking is nothing more than the process of asking and answering questions. But a big problem is that most people are not consciously aware of the questions they ask themselves.
I see so many people focusing on the wrong things. A lot of people focus on why something CANNOT be done instead of focusing on how it CAN be done. Instead of asking yourself for ways to prove why something can't be done, ask yourself how you are going to get it done.
If you ask yourself a better question, you will come up with a better answer. And therefore a better result. Better results means more money.
Try asking yourself a better question next time you feel stuck.
