Ask The Ultimate Question!

I want you to ask yourself “The Ultimate Question.” I want you to ask it every day for one week; write down your responses in the space provided and take action on at least one of your ideas. Here’s the ultimate question:

How can I serve more students?

Let me give you an example of how powerful this question can be. When I left my job in “Corporate America” to pursue my passion to teach, I realized that I was going to have to take a substantial pay cut.

Then one day I was driving to school, and I asked myself, “Wouldn’t it be great if they paid us more to do what we love?” Then God spoke to my heart and reminded me that teaching wasn’t about my paycheck, it was about my purpose: to teach students. Then the next thought that pop into my head changed my life; it was the question:

“How can I serve more students?”

I asked this question every day for about a month and recorded my answers on a tape recorder as I drove to school. I came up with dozens of ideas, including speaking, writing books, training teachers, doing audio and video programs, hosting a talk show, writing a syndicated column, building a web site, etc.
I managed to take action on most of my ideas; and the rest, as they say, is history. I went from teaching about 175 students a year to currently reaching more than 65,000 a year (not to mention the hundreds of thousands of students I reach and teach each month on my web site and through columns and articles I write).

Not only have I been able to reach more students and impact more lives, my love for teaching, (as well my income), have all increased. You GIVE first, THEN you RECEIVE. So go ahead, don’t just sit there, ask the question:

How can I serve more students as a teacher?
