How to Regain Your Greatest Asset of All Time in Three Minutes

This is the first post in a multiple post series on The Inner Game of Your Music Career – Your Mental Gearbox: Filters.

We talked earlier in the previous post about why you must recognize the importance of filters in your life…about how it can make the difference between life and death for a soldier in Vietnam, and it can mean the difference between life and death for your beats publishing career as well (or any publishing career for that matter).

To start this, I’d like you to consider a very important quotation from a man who practically invented business as we know it today. His name is Peter Drucker, and here’s what he has to say about questions:

“Blah blah blah. The real disaster is when a company asks the wrong question.” ~ Peter Drucker

Questions are our 100% reliable loyal servants. They are the way to search the search engine of your brain. “Your mind is Google for goals,” says Internet business pioneer, Eben Pagan, who nets $20M+/year in information products.

So, I must ask you, what are you asking yourself on a regular basis?

In here, I’m going to give you a system of questions that can ultimately change the quality of your life. I’d like to give you a series of questions that can revolutionize your life. I stand on the shoulders of giants when I give you these, because I was given what will now be given to you.

Here are a set of questions from a man named Tony Robbins. He calls these the Morning Power Questions. You’ve probably even heard these or read them in his book, Awaken the Giant Within. Maybe you haven’t gotten this down yet, so here it goes. Ask yourself these questions in the morning every morning from now on (Tony Robbins suggests to do so for the next ten days):


What am I happy about in my life now? What about that makes me happy? How does that make me feel?

What am I excited about in my life now? What about that makes me excited? How does that make me feel?

What am I proud about in my life now? What about that makes me proud? How does that make me feel?

What am I grateful for in my life now? What about that makes me grateful? How does that make me feel?

What am I enjoying in my life now? What about that makes me enjoyable? How does that make me feel?

What am I committed to in my life now? What about that makes me committed? How does that make me feel?

Who do I love? Who loves me? How does that make me a loving person?


These questions have changed my life. They’ve changed my life because we are SO influencable, so malleable in the morning because of our calm, waking state—nothing else is on your mind.

If you show up in the morning with only the results that these questions provide (for example, “Feel Hopeless” doesn’t show up in any of these questions, when asked with sincerity), you’re going to have a great day! You filter your life in terms of these filters, and you can make life the way you want it by using these emotions.

If you took this to your life for the next ten days, you’ll get nothing but positive gains. It will give you the states you need to further your career. I can’t give you the absolute surety on exactly what you’ll get, but it definitely gives more to each person.

I can’t say, “This will give you $10,000 in the next ten days,” but it certainly could, because I know you’re a more powerful, more creative person, when you’re under the power of these emotions.

When you take the ten-day challenge while doing what you normally do, while you do what you do best in life (likely, something with music), here’s what will happen:


You’ll possess a greater sense of creativity,

You’ll gain a greater level of energy because of your focus, and

You’ll master the ability to influence others because of the energy you convey when experiencing (and eventually being with) these emotions


There’s so much here! Take this small thought for example.

Let’s take any worker from, say, the customer service section of a modern company that sells synthesizers (you know, because it’s music). Now, I’m going to ask you to do something that’ll show you what the difference is for yourself.

Take this same worker, and you put him in two situations where in one he doesn’t have these emotions or he didn’t ask these questions. With this, now put him in one where he does have these emotions and he asked these questions.

See the difference?

What you’re actually picturing is a person who can represent you (on a BIGGER scale, for whatever goal you set yourself on).

When you do this, now, you change the context of your life because of these filters. And when you change your filters, you change your life.

Look forward to seeing how you enjoy this exercise, this system for your daily thinking! We also look forward to seeing how you grow and love life as an incredible person. We’ve enjoyed our session here together.
