Top 15 Question Quotes
We’ve all been given A TON of answers. We’ve heard from this study, that newspaper article, this blog post, that book, this friend, and that family member how to: Be more productive, reduce stress, manage relationships, be more optimistic, spend our time, be more happy, make more money, spend our money, donate our money, eat more healthy, exercise more frequently, etc.
But, being told what to do and figuring it out for yourself are two completely different ways of arriving at an answer that, although may be the same, has completely different affects on its personal value. It’s like being back in high school math – You were given an algebra problem where you had to solve for ‘x’ and one of your friends just gave you the answers before you knew how to solve it on your own. Sure you may have gotten the right answer and figured out what the mysterious ‘x’ was (congratulations!) but when that test came around and you didn’t know how to do it for yourself… You probably got sick all of a sudden and had to go home to study, EH EHM, I mean rest until you felt better (which I’m sure none of you ever did).
Ultimately though, when you took the time to truly learn the material for yourself and put the time in to prepare for what was next, the other options and escape strategies didn’t matter anymore, because you figured it out and knew what you were doing. Why not do the same with your daily living?! What could be more important than setting yourself up for a life of success by reflecting on and figuring out what you want to do and then DOING IT?!
Take some time to read through the following questions and reflect on their underlying messages and how they make you feel. Use these questions as mental guidelines to keep you on track and focused on what’s important and where your priorities should be each day!
