Children do not know their boundaries and they constantly test to see what they can and can't do. As they grow up into their teenage years they may still have a dreamer mentality, and by the time they are 23, they start to realize they have put on an extra 30 pounds, and definitely won't be pursuing a career as a professional skateboarder. Don't laugh at me!
Opportunities pass you every day. Its right here right now, all you have to do is see it, reach out, and accept it.
But on to asking more questions. Why do we do the things we do? Sure you can say for money, or to get the ladies! Or even for the self satisfaction of achieving "things." But after a while of achieving "things" I started to ask why. "Why" can be the most disrupting question to ask yourself, because there is not always an answer. When you ask a question your brain gives you an answer. Why am I such a screw up? Ding! Ding! Ding! Because you made a D on your middle school science project and all the kids laughed at you because... Well you're stupid and the teacher thought you were stupid also. Heck, for all that matters your parents probably think you're a bit dim too. Does that answer your question? Okay... Okay... That may have been a bit excessive and over the top, but its 2013, come on! Let me show my ankles!
So if you are a constant questioner like myself then keep in mind when asking yourself a question, it is important to ask it in a way that is congruent with your goals. For example: instead of asking "Why am I such a screw up?" you should ask "What can I do to be better?" This will solve the majority of your petty stress because you are now commanding your life in a more positive direction. Its a simple habit with powerful results.
Okay. Here we are again sharing a moment. Me sitting here typing eloquent and poetic words, and you... the reader, gleefully reading away happily and content. Anxiously the reader read the next word! And another! And another! Until finally the reader began to question... What is this guy doing? He is in my head! His words are literally being vocalized in mind in the voice I imagine him to have! Alas! There must be relief. The relief comes from asking why? Why do we do the things we do?
Is it for sexual, financial, or social gains? The majority of the time, it is. It is for selfish gains. We live in a world that literally revolves around billions of "selves" at varying levels. It's survival of each individual that ensures the continuity of the whole. But where is the limit? How much do we need? Are you balanced?
We do the things we do, because we temporarily have the belief/opinion it is what we need at that point in time. I saw an advert for the new nick-nack. The next thing I know I am buying it. It serves me well. I enjoy the nick-nack. I love my nick-nack. Nick-nack no longer fun... I throw away... Hey is that the new razor scooter?! Wow only $19.95! I'll take seven!
Wash rinse repeat. This is why I ask so many questions. I demand answers in this life. The only way to answer life's mysteries is by searching for the truth. Keep asking questions. Ask the question to the question to the question. It's an infinite loop, but unfortunately many people settle with the first thing they are told. Don't shut yourself off to your full potential.
Now get out there and go question some people until they run you out the door!!! You can start with me by leaving a comment below. I guarantee I will answer most questions tee he.
