S:0618 Principle: Answering Your Own Questions

(Principles are basic truths that, when applied, cause success to come to you easier and quicker.)

 

In your tool box of life it’s useful to have a set of great questions, questions you have thought about, prepared, and are instantly ready to ask when the opportunity arises. You can get powerful guidance from the answers to great questions.

Some people have a hard time asking questions because they have a hard time letting someone else have the answers. They feel they must be the one with the answers. It’s an emotional thing.

Caution – questions are to be asked by you, not answered by you. If you answer your own questions, what new wisdom can arise? The person who is constantly on the search for wisdom is the person who asks lots of questions, and then listens, really listens, to the answers.
