Four Questions To Change Your Life

Four Questions To Change Your LifeIt only takes four questions to change your life if you ask them of yourself and if you honestly answer them. It is important to ask yourself what you want in life and ask it often because as we grow and evolve so do our dreams and goals.

What you wanted five years ago might not be what you really want now. Heck, what you wanted last week might not even be applicable today… things change.

Working with my clients and asking them what they want, repeatedly, is how we get to the answers that drive the direction that clients move in. But you don’t have to be a client to get clear about what you want, you can do it all on your own. Just ask yourself these four questions and you will have your own newfound sense of clarity and direction.

Four Questions To Change Your Life

  1. What do you want to have? – Having does not just refer to superficial things and objects. It refers to more intangible things – like do you want to have better relationships, better health or a more fulfilling career. By having these answers written down and referring to them daily will make a huge difference in helping you to move closer to your goals.
  2. What do you want to do? – Make these aspirations big! Give yourself something to dream on, something that you cannot just finish in a day, but something that moves you out of your comfort zone and inspires you to perform to the best of your abilities.
  3. What do you want to learn? – What do you want to learn? Is it to learn a new language, a new job skill or how to cook a gourmet meal? This can be a tough one to figure out but it is worth asking yourself and exploring. Learning is a very important part of self-growth, and if something is not growing then it is probably dying. Always try to find new things that you want to learn.
  4. What do you want to give? – What do you have to offer the world; what unique skills, what resources, what knowledge? Find out and give it away without expecting anything in return. Always try to give back whenever possible and just give in general of your time, energy, and talents to make the world a better place.

These four little questions can completely change your life if you sit down and take the time to answer them fully and honestly. Once you have the answers then set your course to have, to do, to learn, and to give all that you can.

All that it takes is four questions to change your life – so what do you want for your life?

Go and get it!
