I believe in the power of a good question – do you?
You may be very comfortable in your life, following your routines, doing what you do. But because you clicked on the link to this post, I’m guessing that routine might not be feeling perfectly comfortable. You are considering questioning, you are considering change, you are considering growth. But where to start? And why?
If you’ve been hit with a wallop from life – a new baby, lost job, serious diagnosis – and you are feeling lost and unsure, then you need some good questions to find your way again. You might need a good question if you are hitting the same frustration over and over and over. If you’ve been asking yourself, “Why doesn’t my life look like I want it to? Why do other people make it look so easy when it feels really hard to me?” then you need to ask yourself something different to get to the root of those issues.
I’m a life-examiner. I’ve been working with coaches and therapists for many years. I talk through my experiences and reactions to things with my close friends. I write about my life here and elsewhere because it helps me to understand it. All of this has helped me to build a lot of self-awareness about myself and how I function in the world.
As a result, when something feels wrong or frustrating or difficult, I know it is time to step back and start questioning so I can identify what needs to change. I want that for you, too.
Do you examine your life on the regular? If your answer is, “Maybe?” or “I don’t know how to do that,” or even, “Wow, that’s scary,” then this list is for you.
These 20 questions are a great way to get to know yourself better. Don’t like the answers? Don’t have answers to some of them? Then that is where your work lies.
