Friday’s Purposeful Question

Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions.” ~ Rainer Maria Rilke

It is said that the quality of your life is determined by the quality of your questions. So, what questions are you asking?

Are you asking empowering questions like: “What can I do to turn this obstacle into a challenge that will strengthen me?”

Or, are you asking disempowering questions like: “Why is this happening to me?

See the difference? Empowering questions force you to stretch your mind towards possibility thinking, while disempowering questions keep you stuck in victim mode.

You can tell whether a woman is clever by her answers. You can tell whether she is wise by her questions.” ~ attributed to Naguib Mahfouz

Just for today, ask bigger empowering questions!
