Best Questions to Ask Yourself this Year

Best Questions to Ask Yourself this Year

How do I find my “77% sure” and move forward? 

For years in your twenties, much of your angst came/ comes because you were subconsciously searching for that perfect path to your future. Then sooner you realize the search for perfect is the perfect way to be perfectly miserable the better for you

There is no perfect job. No perfect partner. No perfect friend. No perfect time. No perfect family. No perfect church. No perfect neighborhood. No perfect answer. No perfect path. Drowning in options is a terrible way to die. Do it big. Do it small. Just do something.

Find your 77% sure. Make a choice to make a choice. Then move forward. It won’t be perfect. And that’s a good thing.

Who inspires me the most?

 If you’re struggling to find your passion, purpose, or top values, then ask yourself — who inspires you? It could be a historical figure, someone you know personally, someone who you follow closely, or even a fictional character. What specifically about them inspires you?

We’re all inspired by different people because part of their story speaks specifically to yours.

Do I create or do I complain more?

 We can consume more or we can create. We can criticize more or we can create. Create more. Complain less. Repeat.

What are my problems and personal pain revealing to me about my purpose?

 Often times our greatest passions are found in our greatest pain. It’s not sexy, but it’s true. Knowing what breaks your heart can clarify what makes you feel whole. Your dream is not dead. Your struggles aren’t a distraction from your calling; sometimes your struggles are the pathway to it.

How do I stop “infotainment” from slapping me in the face every five seconds and taking my lunch money?

 We are overwhelmed with Way. Too. Much. Information! Most of it served on a glittering platter of “infotainment” — the illusion of needed info that only exists to get you to click and read more. This year, practice the art of shutting out the unnecessary noise. It’s all a bunch of distractions trying to keep you from doing your work.

Am I putting myself in places to meet new people and start “relationshipping” more?”

 You’ll only make as much progress this year as the relationships you’re investing in. You don’t have to be a master at networking to make new substantial relationships this year. No, actually quite the opposite.

What’s the best that can happen?

 Maybe it’s time for a new question. Instead of the worst that can happen, what’s the best? If you choose to make a choice, and move forward. If you start creating solutions more and ignore those who only complain about the problems.

If you become inspired by those who have done great things, instead of being engulfed by Obsessive Comparison Disorder on social media.

What’s the best that can happen?

What lives will you impact?

What progress will you make?

What new things will you learn?

How much will you grow this year?

What legacy will you start to build for your family?

What’s the best that can happen? I have an inkling that the best we can even imagine, doesn’t even come close to the amazing that’s in store.
