The Worst Kinds of Questions


These were the kinds of questions that consumed my mind for years:

How do I lose weight?
What foods should I avoid?
How do I make more money?
How do I find a man?
How do I grow my income?
How do I deal with worry?

I’d obsess, read books and constantly focus on them and do whatever I could to figure it out.

The problem with this type of inquiry is that it feeds the belief that there’s a problem. It keeps you living in your challenges versus living in possibility. These questions feel heavy, dull and full of fear. A lifetime of searching for the answers to them? A life filled heaviness, dullness and fear? Doesn’t sound so fabulous.

These kinds of questions simply kept me surviving.

But fully living?

Not at all.

My life changed when I upgraded the quality of my questions.

Now, I wake up asking things like:

What can I create today?
How can I inspire?
What amazing foods am I going to cook?
What fun adventures am I going to go on?
What am I going to write?
How will I love?

These kind of questions have led me to the most extraordinary life.

What kind of questions are you going to ask yourself today?

With Inquiry,

  1. Thank you, this is a great post! Asking bad questions can definitely give us bad answers.

    I like that you included the question, “How will I love?” I ask myself everyday: “How much love can I give?” and it somehow prevents me from worrying if I have enough, or if I’m good enough. Amazing!

  2. I’ve been rolling these questions through my head now…and have written them down. Already thinking about how I can”re-direct” my thoughts to these types of questions each day. Thank you Tonya!
