The Art of Questioning

What is the single most important thing you can do to dramatically improve the quality of your life? It is exactly what I just did. Ask questions. There is a saying that the quality of your life is directly proportional to the quality of the questions that you ask. This is why you should, not only ask questions, but ask quality questions about every area of your life.

If you are currently unsatisfied with any area of your life, whether its your health, your relationships, your finances or your career, then the fastest way to improve that area of your life is to ask the right questions about it.

For example, if you find yourself always in debt and unable to get ahead financially, here are some questions you could ask:

How can I upgrade my primary source of income?

Could I ask for a raise?

Should I seek another position in the same organization?

Should I look for another job?

What are my skills, talents and abilities that I could draw upon to create an online business?

What am I passionate about that people are willing to pay me for?

Do I need to upgrade my skills and education?

What do I do with whatever money I do earn?

Am I spending it on only what I need or am I wasting it on frivolous things?

What unnecessary expenses could I cut out?

What are the various ways I can invest what I have to grow my wealth?

Should I be downsizing my primary residence?

Should I be relocating to a less expensive city?

You see, if you are stuck somewhere in your life it is only because you are not asking the right questions. If you become curious enough about any area of your life, that is not where you want it to be, you will begin to formulate the right questions, which will lead you to the right answers to improve that area of your life.

Right now, pick an area of your  life that you are not happy with. Write down at least ten questions that you could you journal on to come up with an action plan to dramatically elevate that area of your life. Do this exercise and watch your life transform.
