“In the past, I always used to be looking for answers. Today, I know there are only questions. So I just live.” ― Sarah Brightman
To see our lives in a different way is to ask questions. Often all we seek are answers to questions rather than asking the bigger questions to see what answers come to us.
How often have you been the source of answers? Do people come to you asking you questions so that they can quickly get back to doing their work or are you the one who asks others to answer your questions?
Questions open up the imagination. Being able to be open about what types of responses that you could get or you already know may reveal the answers you really were looking for.
Many people are looking for ways to have a happier more joyful life. Maybe they are seeking new work, work that they can engage in and use their strengths and talents in ways they aren’t able to today. I’ve seen people that are making good money with great benefits, good work arrangement and find work terribly frustrating and are willing to work for less to have less stress. What is the question?
Here are some questions to ask yourself:
1. What works in my life?
2. What do I really want?
3. What are my choices?
4. What’s possible?
5. What am I responsible for?
What are big questions?
