Right Questions to ask for Predictions(Truth)
After reading the 1st part of the book, I have started all over again to 'internalize' the concepts & apply it in the priority areas of my life. However I seem to have stuck with understanding one concept. I need help to proceed ahead.
I understand that Prediction is one of the key component of Truth and that we can determine minds predictive powers in 2 ways. Firstly by embracing new experiences & second by making conscious, deliberate decisions to make better predictions. I think I have not grasped these 2 methods completely.
I would like to apply these methods in my 2 topmost priority areas of Life i.e Finance & Career. I am not sure how to proceed. What questions should I ask myself, what are the possible new experiences I can embrace and what could be these conscious & deliberate decisions in these 2 areas.
I am a newbie in the field of PD, but I have strong desire to learn & apply all techniques which Steve has written in his book. If my query seems childish then please excuse me.

I remember when I was reading the section on prediction,I was curious as to why Steve didn't mention the experiences of others as a valid tool for prediction.
That's the first thing I would do, buy books or talk to people who have excellent careers and finance, which are aligned with truth, love, and power, and ask them about it. You'll be able to predict how you're experience will go much better, by learning of their experiences.
The next thing to do is of course try new things in regards to these areas, such as making a new investment, starting a new business, or changing something else within your career. As you continue todo this, you'll be better able to predict how an investment you make will turn out, what's a good investment, what's a good career choice, etc.

The only thing I can figure is that Steve holds to the idea that your inner guidance trumps all. He probably wouldn't be against talking to other people who are experienced in the things you want to do, but at the same time you can't afford to rely too much on them otherwise you may become imprinted by their patterns and forget your truth in the process.
After all, becoming successful isn't as easy as looking at what someone else has done and copying that person. Again, much can be learned that way, but only when you're strong enough, when you have a clear enough vision of what you want and how you want to get there, that you can take others' advice and mold it to suit your own purposes.
-I- cannot tell -you- how to be successful, but I can give you insight into the principles I've used to get where I am. That sounds like Steve's approach.

Knowing your profession would help in recommanding good questions.
1) How much time do I spent each day on projects that matter five years from now.
2) What are my total costs of ownership?
I also think that getting the prediction about the future that you do in writting and reviewing those prediction is important.
For Steve truth is nothing that exists out there in some book, but it's always in the experience itself.

Since the book is about personal development, we're talking about your personal alignment with Truth. That requires honing your own predictive skills.
You can certainly get advice from others, but all decisions are ultimately yours to make. So no one else can make those decisions for you. They can only provide you with more input.
There's so much bad advice out there that can worsen your results, so it's very important to build your own ability to predict which courses of action are likely to generate the results you want and which are more likely to fail.
Obviously there's a lot of unpredictability in reality, but we learn a lot of patterns from experience. A great shortcut in life is to apply our most effective learned patterns to new situations.
If you want to apply the power of prediction to financial/career results, a simple way to do that is to brainstorm a list of possible options/paths to pursue. Then use your imagination to predict how those paths are likely to unfold. What do you like/dislike about each path? Keep iterating through different scenarios until you find one that has a very positive prediction.
One of the worst things you can do is to follow a path where you're predicting a negative or mediocre outcome in the long run. It's okay to follow a path that's short-term negative and long-term wonderful though, but you'll need some Courage (Chapter 6) to pursue it.
