Ask Your Question ? Get what You Desire
"Questions get answers, advice, opinions, beliefs, impressions, stories, and more questions. Questions are about life, people, careers, achievements, facts, and faith. Ask and learn." - Ruby Bayan What would just the right question be worth to you? There is nothing more effective for bringing deep insight and understanding than a powerful question. You truly can ask questions that create meaningful change in your life. The right questions can lead you toward the things you desire. Questions: Simple words mixed carefully into a phrase with the power to change lives in extraordinary ways. Questions crystallize thought. Powerful questions ask "What, Why, Where, Who, How, and When?" They bring insights, visions, and new perspectives. Lord Byron wrote, "But words are things, and a small drop of ink, falling, like dew, upon a thought produces that which makes thousands, perhaps millions think."
Questions stop the noise in our minds for a moment. They allow zeroing in on our present feelings or level of understanding. We can hear our first intuitive answers and impressions. Repeating a question can refine the answer from understanding into a deeper level of knowing.
There is a special type of life-enhancing question called an "Inquiry". A purposeful inquiry is a question to think about without demanding an immediate answer. We can carry these questions with us daily, allowing the process of life to provide the answers. Life often provides the right question only when we are completely ready to accept and live the answer.
I have inquiries that I carry permanently, allowing them to evolve and bring new insights and inquiries over time. One day you might find that the question has changed, and with the changing of the question, you have changed as well.
If you could ask one question that you would be willing to ponder as long as necessary, what would your most life-enhancing question be today?
In choosing a question, consider how your life would look and feel if you could rate it a perfect 10. Then consider what you intend to accomplish during your lifetime. What is it that you need to know in order to move closer to your ideal life?
Do you need some ideas?
In the article, 18 Good Questions for Living the Good Life, Lee Wise recently shared some great suggestions for "asking just the right questions to get just what you desire". You can find the article here:
Asking life-enhancing questions each day will energize and guide you through many rewarding experiences. May your questions-and answers-bring you the desires of your heart!

Self Confidence : The Importance of Will-Power
The importance of will-power is recognized by most men, yet few deliberately give any time or thought to its development. Why we resist one thing and yield to another may be due to "the strongest motive," but what more particularly concerns us in the study of self-confidence is in what way this mighty power can be built and directed.
Three Fs and a Challenge
It's no secret that life is a tricky animal to understand and it's even harder to tame it so that it delivers what you want. But from my work in the world of personal development I've figured out three simple things that can transform any situation, any problem, any issue...and any life. Three things that once in place can bring the best out of you, bring the best to you and allows you to enjoy all of it. What are these three things? I call them the Three F's - Fun, Fulfillment and Freedom.
I woke up one morning with a sharp pain in my ear. The last time I had an earache was some eighteen years ago. Then it was my mother's lot to worry about it. But this morning, I am to worry because I'm grown and hardly could hear with the left ears. I felt as if some insects crept into the ear while I slept. A friend once told me roaches and spiders could be that crazy. Whatever caused the pain all I wanted to do was see a doctor. I learnt that Ear specialists are at the General Hospitals, so I decided to visit the General Hospital on Broad Street.
What Motivates You?
As a life-long student of personal development, I've attended dozens of motivational seminars, listened to hundreds of tapes, and read untold books on the subject of motivation . I've presented motivational seminars. And yet there is one elemental truth that seems often overlooked. That is: no one can motivate you, because you have to do it to yourself. It's an inside job. And frankly it's less a function of "doing" than it is of discovering what your natural motivators are. So the key to getting and staying motivated is finding out what excites you. What makes you want to jump out of bed in the morning? What speaks to your heart as well as your head?
