You probably have a lot of dreams and aspirations in life, but have no clue how to achieve them. At the same time, you don’t want to be paralysed by excessive analysis or philosophising, do you? As such , let’s look at the following questions that might give you even deeper insight behind what it is that you want.
When you were small, what was the first thing that you’ve dreamt of doing or becoming? How have these ambitions of yours changed over the course of time? Why do they change? Would you still be able to live them now if you would just give your all into it?
What are some of the things which you think you have to accomplish before you can really feel that you’ve done something important in your life? What are the goals that you have to meet before you can really feel complete? What is missing and what must you do to reclaim what you feel is missing in your life story?
What do you enjoy doing most right now? What are the hobbies, activities and work which you find pleasure in doing currently? What are the things which find you the most satisfaction, concentration and delight when you’re doing them?
What were the skills which you had acquired over a relatively short period of time? What have you learnt quickly and easily? What are you good at? What are the things which you know you are good at and which other people tell you that you are good at?
Are you a giver or a receiver? Throughout your life, whenever you have a strong desire or intention for something, have your desires always been for the benefit of others or just for your own personal gain?
Now that you have been armed with the powerful questions that will get you thinking about your goals, address each and every one of them comprehensively, one by one. Try and answer each question on paper (or in your journal) thoroughly and articulately. Explore the deeper levels behind every answer you generate. If a question leads to another deeper question, by all means pursue it, but only to a point where you are most comfortable pursuing it. Feel free also to not answer some of the questions if you think they are not relevant or appropriate to what you are doing now.
If your simple desire is to buy a new shirt, by all means, go ahead and buy it, you don’t even need this questions system to do so. Unless, of course, it is your intention to design, create and manufacture a revolutionary line of clothing that will not only help to preserve the environment and maintain ecological balance, but redefine the entire fashion industry as well. Then you really need this questions system. Just an example.
