Welcome back to episode #273! As many of you know I am personally involved in two very high-level masterminds that I pay to be in, and one thing I love about them is that I get exposed to some of the best content and mentors! Well, that’s exactly how today’s interview with John Miller came about. Everyone in my mastermind kept mentioning this book QBQ, The Question Behind The Question. I ended up connecting with John on social media and I’m so glad he is here today!

“Life just turned around because I found my passion…” At minute 2:00, John tells us about his strong mission, vision and where it all started and the moment he found his passion. John shares how to ask the question behind the question that put us on the path to personal accountability.

“We rely so much on teamwork, we’ve forgotten the power of one… “ At 6:00 there will be a lot of breakthroughs that happen and John talks about the two myths in his book surrounding accountability. What we can do as individuals to be a better coach, a better friend, to take risks or to be an accountable parent.

“I can take personal accountability and get something done that serves people…” At minute 10:53 we talk about what his book QBQ is actually solving. John and I talk about how to get things done if you are a solopreneur, how you can get employees or take risks to get where you want to be. How asking the right questions is so important to your success.

“Successful people are always aware of what they’re thinking…” At 14:57, John tells us some ideas of how to immediately make a switch and frame our questions differently. What you can do to move forward, not worry about others and change yourself first. John answers why some people require their team to read his book QBQ and why I’m recommending this book to you.

“An outstanding individual is aware of their actions and behaviors…” At minute 22:05, we talk about what it takes for a person or an organization to be outstanding, the discipline of leadership the ability to think and choice and be aware of what we are choosing.

If we aren’t taking a step back and looking within and really fix or strengthen our weaknesses we are going to run into some big problems.
