28 questions to ask yourself in life!
Have you ever experienced a mental block that disturbed your outlook on life, happiness and your relationships with others? Have you ever stood at a point in life where you were faced with the challenge of making important decisions and you didn’t know what to do or what factors to consider in order to make the right choice? Or do you simply need change and don’t know which direction to take?
“A good question is worth more than a thousand mediocre answers”
For these and many other reasons, it may be helpful to ask yourself these 28 perspective widening questions. There are no right or wrong answers to these questions; they will simply help you get rid of limiting and negative thoughts that cloud your mind and prevent you from thinking clearly.
Take your time to reflect and really think about what’s asked. Some questions may seem a bit … how can I put it… annoying? It’s normal to feel that way, it’s your brain telling you ‘I really don’t want to be thinking about that’, which is good…
