Tony Robbins is a big believer in the power of questioning to influence someone. It is obvious, in hind sight, that they need to come up with the answer to be bought in to the solution.
This is instinctive but gets beaten out of you as a child. We learn it is bad to say “why why why”,
It just is. Learn this text book. Regurgitate this date.
Why not teach your child to ask better questions?
Maybe because you have not asked or answered them of yourself. Maybe because you will not like the answer you think of.
“Daddy, why do you have to go to work?” Easy answer “to pay the bills to buy toys.”
Hard answer, “because I did not invest in myself enough to generate income that is not linked to my time. So now I have to miss seeing you in return for buying you things that will never replace the short time you have with me.”
Time adds up, minutes turn to hours, turn to days. Shave the excess, spend time on the important things, ditch the rest.
