Questions That Matter

Photo by Kelly on
Great questions matter. Successful people ask great questions. Unsuccessful people don't. 
Successful people ask questions to get more questions. On the other hand, unsuccessful people ask questions to get more answers. 
Questions are not about answers. They are about more questions. 
If your questions are producing more answers, then they are wrong. They are not strong enough. They are not philosophical enough. 
But if your questions are giving you more questions, then keep asking them. They are the right ones.
If you want to grow, ask great questions. Because great questions lead to great answers. 
If you want to grow, you must ask questions that matter.
Let us start with you. Ask yourself,
"What do I really want? where do I want to go? How do I get there?
Do I know what I really want for myself? 
Am I planning my life? What am I doing to make my dreams come true? 
Am I doing what is required of me? Am I doing my best? Am I giving my best?
Am I treating myself with love and respect? 
Am I treating other people with love and respect?
Am I living my life? Am I doing what makes me happy? Am I doing what I love?
If what I am doing is not working, why is it not working? What is holding me back?
What am I doing to get what I want? Do I have what it takes? Am I brave enough? 
Who are the people around you? Ask yourself, "What are my friends doing? Are they moving forward?
Are they growing? Are they treating me with love and respect? 
Are they getting things done? If not, why?
Are they taking risks? What are they doing to change their lives?
If  your friends are not growing, then why are you doing with them?
If you want to grow, you must hang around doers, not talkers.

If You Are Not Making Progress, This Is What You Are Not Doing

Where are you now? Where do you want to go? What do you want to do with your life? 
If you do not know what you want for yourself, ask yourself this question:
"What do I really want for myself?" Answer it honestly. Face it squarely.
Do not hide behind anything. Do not hide behind any past failures, fears. Don't.
Because you are better than you think you really are. 

Do not be scared to question yourself. Ask yourself some tough questions. Ask yourself questions that you can't even answer. 
Ask yourself questions like these ones:
"Why am I here?" "Am I growing?" "Do I know what I really want?" Are my dreams really my dreams?" "Am I spending my time with the right people?" "If I am not getting the right results, what am I going to do to get to where I want to be?" 
And be comfortable with the answers. Take actions.
Actions lead to growth. And you can't grow if you do not have the courage to look at yourself in the mirror. 
To grow, you must question your actions. To grow, you must have the courage to question yourself, to question where you are, and to question what you are doing. Will you?
