Children have a natural sense of wonder and curiosity of all things. How does that work? Why is that color that color? Who is the tallest? The smartest? There are no limits to the questions and the knowledge that children seek. We were all like that at one point, and to return to that kind of mentality could only be a positive for more experienced people.
Curious Again Like A Child
As an adult I have found that this curiosity and wonder is discouraged and seen almost as a weakness. You are expected to become an expert in your field and experts don’t make inquiries. There should be no need for questions, no learning of new things. You understand life and how it works. You surely must be a failure if you don’t understand life and all of its intricate moves by the time you are 40.
The truth is that nobody knows all there is to learn about life because there is always going to be some aspect of this journey that can be expanded upon. Physically, emotionally, or spiritually. Choose something and pursue a childlike curiosity about it and feel the wonder that will result from it. Children don’t worry about what someone else thinks about their actions, they are just thinking.
Learning to ask the right questions can change your life. A question will determine your thoughts and your words as you work out the answer. These will lead to the actions that you take and determine the success that you experience. Ask the right questions: What should I focus on to make a lot of money today? What action can I take to be successful right now? What million dollar idea do I see? What talent should I focus on today? Once the question is asked, your mind will begin to work on it, even when you are not consciously considering it. Your subconscious will help you work on it.
Never be afraid to get clarity about the information that you are looking for. Be clear about the goal by asking the right questions. Not asking questions due to a fear of looking less than intelligent, is in fact acting less than intelligent. Form your questions wisely, because the thoughts in your mind today are going to determine the reality you experience tomorrow.
