Tony Robbins regular says ‘ask better questions if you want better answers’ – these are 5 questions that I still ask myself at least once a week when things are feeling particularly hard or difficult.
 
This is one of these rare episodes (alongside ‘how to find your life purpose’ and ‘the tips I would give my 18 year old self’) that I would have given anything to hear five years ago. I hope it helps you as much as it helped me re-listening to it. 
 
1.     What would I do for free?
My version of success is waking up every morning knowing that if I won the lotto, Id still does what I’m doing now. What would you do for free? Build your life around that.
 
2.     What does my perfect day look like?
 
Who are you spending the day with, what are you doing and why is it perfect? Find the things that make you happy, do more of it, find the things (and people) that make you unhappy, do less of it.
 
3.     What would this look like if it were easy?
I more than anyone have to deal with ‘superman syndrome’ where I think I can do it all and bite off more than I can chew, which normally just leads to stress and anxiety. This is my ‘go to’ question when feeling overwhelmed or anxious.
 
4.     Who am I doing it for?
The how means nothing until you find your why. The days you’re tired, struggling and don’t know if you can continue, ask yourself, who is it for?
 
5.     What would you do if you knew you couldn't fail?
As soon as I start to get in my own head and start thinking about what could go wrong, I ask myself this one question and it opens everything else up. If you feel your own biggest enemy lives between your two ears, then ask yourself this questions every time you feel you can’t do something.

I know myself that October is such a hard month to stay motivated so here’s a challenge if you need something to keep you accountable for the month ahead.
 
1)    Cut all the processed food for the month of October
 
2)    Only have sugar or alcohol on Saturday night.
 
3)    Add these 20 minutes of finishers instead of cardio at the end of workouts
 
4)    If you cant get to the gym, add 100 squats or push ups a day
 
5)    Add a strong probiotic twice per day (gut health and
absorption)
 
6)    Drink an extra half a litre every day
 
7)    Add two cups of green tea a day
 
 
Screenshot and put as the screensaver of your phone to ensure you do it every day.
 
Hashtag #briankeanefitness on Instagram for accountability for the month of October.
