This week’s questions is a bit more hard hitting. Because that’s what adversity is. It isn’t an easy part of life and it shouldn’t be. Adversity is a growing experience in the journey of life. Usually it is a painful experience where giving up seems to be the easiest thing to do.
So how do you handle adversity? Do you give up or give in at the first sign of hardship? Or do you stand your ground and face the challenge head on? This is an important question to ask yourself because some form of adversity is inevitable in life.
Usually I would add additional questions for you to answer but I feel that it isn’t necessary for this question. The method of how you handle adversity should be the only focal point. That method used is the determining factor of the level of success you experience. So make sure to really take your time with this question.
There is only one way to handle the adversities that life throws your way. That is to keep moving forward. Persistence is the only way to overcome adversity. It is the attitude of your persistence that determines the outcome of your hardship. If you are negative in your frame of mind than with almost certainty the end result will be negative. If you go through adversity with a smile on your face, with the faith that the storm will pass and your life will be better. Then eventually your situation will improve.
Adversity is inevitable so make the most of the situation. View it as a valuable learning lesson and a growing experience. Your life will be more fulfilling when you do experience the heights of success. All stemming from the depths of adversity and how you handled it.
Every one of us has dreams. They come in all shapes and sizes. No two dreams are exactly alike. Dreams are what makes life beautiful. Dreams inspire us and raise our spiritual energy to a higher plane of being.
This is a question that should resonate deeply in your heart. Our dreams are what we truly desire to do with our lives. They are powerful. If brought to fruition, they make our lives a blissful utopia.
The key thing to remember with this question is that there are no wrong answers. Have fun with this question! That is what dreams are all about!
Here are some additional questions to help you dig deeper into your dreams:
What makes your dreams special to you?
How would you feel if you achieved your dreams? What emotions would you express?
What would your dream life look like?
Are you actively trying to achieve your dreams? If no, why?
Take some time to think about these questions. Really immerse yourself in your dreams and feel those powerful emotions. It’s an amazing feeling isn’t it?
You see, you can make those dreams your reality. Those emotions you just experienced can be yours on a daily basis. As the old saying goes “if there’s a will, there’s a way”.
Don’t allow your dreams to just be dreams. Chase them as if life was a never ending adventure. Our time on this earth is limited so it’s up to you to make your dreams come true. The end result being you living the best version of your life possible.
If you would kindly oblige, I would love to hear what your dreams are.
Everyone is good at something in life. Whether it be sports, writing, music, business, art or anything in between. There are unlimited possibilities for this question. Maybe it isn’t a natural talent but something you’ve developed over the years. It doesn’t have to be something big. It can be something small that you do better than anyone else. There are no wrong answers with this question.
The reason I ask this question is that we often ignore or don’t give ourselves enough credit for the things we do well in life. This question is about giving yourself more credit and possibly giving you some insight on how to live a life you truly enjoy.
Maybe you have something that you enjoy doing but you’re terrible at it. But you want to improve to get better and better. Enjoyment and talent can be combined with a positive attitude for improving your skills.
Here are some additional questions to answer:
What natural talents do you possess?
What is something that you enjoy but want to improve on?
Why are you good at this?
This is more of a fun question to answer. Can’t think of anything you are good at? Don’t worry about it. I’m sure you can think of something. Remember it can be something small such as being a good listener or having a great attitude.
I would love to hear your answers to these questions. We all have different talents and gifts. That is what makes this world so incredible.
I know what you’re thinking. Wow! That’s a lot of money! That’s the point of this question. If you had all the money you ever needed in your life. Money doesn’t solve all problems but it does turn the wheels of industry.
This question is more geared towards how you would spend your money if you were wealthy beyond your wildest dreams. Since money isn’t an issue with this question. Go wild with your answers. Let your imagination be free.
Here are a few more questions to get the creative juices flowing:
What would be the first thing you buy?
How much would you donate to charity or those less fortunate?
Would you help your family and friends out financially?
What places would you travel to?
How much money would you save or invest? (if any)
What would you do just for you?
Would you still work at your current job? Would you work at all?
Again, take your time with these answers. Really think about each question and if you want write it down.
This question allows you to see some insights on what you would do if you were living your best financial life. Now I’m not saying that you have to be a multi-millionaire to be happy. Money doesn’t buy happiness. It’s the truth. It’s just a glance into some of the things you would truly want in your life. Maybe this gives you a spark to start that new business you’ve always wanted. Or maybe make a career change to become more financially independent.
If you would oblige I would love to hear your answers to these questions.
Death is an inevitable part of life. It’s something that we can’t escape no matter how badly we desire to change that. Death is a constant process of renewal on this earth we live on. Death isn’t something that should be feared. It is something that should be cherished.
It is the fact that we know we will die that gives us perspective of what’s truly important in life. The reason that I gave 3 years instead of 1 is that you would still have time to do other things besides getting your affairs in order.
Death makes you get your priorities straight. That meeting you had that didn’t go as planned or that argument with your spouse or that long line you hate to wait in isn’t going to matter when you’re dead. What’s going to matter is the impact you had on others and what you truly loved about life. All other problems fade away in the face of death.
Take a few moments to reflect upon this question. Here are a few more questions to help you get better clarity.
What places would you go see?
What things would you do? Would you write that book? Take that class you’ve always wanted to take? Go skydiving?
Who would you spend your time with?
How would you live each day?
What new hobbies would you learn?
What dreams would you want to achieve?
Now I’m not trying to be a Debbie downer with this question. I’m allowing you to see some key insights to what truly matters in your life. To allow you to get to know yourself a bit better.
Now I would recommend taking your time with these questions. The more you think about each question the deeper you can dig and the more you’ll learn about yourself.
Our time on this earth is limited. So live your life to the fullest.
I would love to hear your answers to these questions if you feel comfortable sharing them with me. We all have different things we want to do with our lives. That’s what makes life so beautiful.
The purpose of this new series is to get to know yourself a bit better every week. I will give you a question to ponder. Really take some time to reflect upon the question to see if you are on the right track with your life.
I wanted to start you out easy. This week’s question is a review of your events that have occurred over the course of a year.
Are you better off now than you were a year ago?
Time seems to move at a rapid rate. Days, weeks, and months fly by in the blink of an eye. Before we know it a year has passed.
Take a few moments to reflect upon where you were at this point last year. Here are a few questions to help you get to the root of the question.
What majors events have you experienced?
What about you has changed?
What new people have been introduced into your life? Have they helped you or hurt you?
What valuable lessons have you learned in the past year?
Do you feel that you’ve grown in a certain area of your life? (mentally, emotionally, spiritually)
Are you closer to achieving your dreams or desires in life?
Take your time, this isn’t a race. The more in depth your answers the more clarity you will have about who you are. Self-reflection is essential to growth in life.
How did you do? Has this year been a year of massive improvement in all areas of your life? If so, that’s amazing and keep up the great work! Don’t stop now!
Or did you feel as though you haven’t improved at all or have actually declined over the past year? No need to worry or beat yourself up about it. The past is the past. You have reflected upon it and learned a valuable lesson. Time to move on to greater things in your future. You can start right now, this instant to begin the process of self-improvement.
It’s never too late to begin. I encourage you to begin today. A year will pass and you will be amazed at the progress you made if you stick with it.
