Raising My Consciousness One Word at a Time
Curiosity– a strong desire to know or learn something.
there are a lot of conflicting thoughts on curiosity. Some embrace it, some fear it, others discourage it. But to me, all of the best learners and innovators have a healthy dose of curiosity in their being. It provides them the motivation to seek the answers solving the problems we have every day. I think we should be as curious as children, always seeking new learning, because it is always there. Learn to cultivate your curiosity and wonder about everything and you will never be bored. It all begins with the consciousness you have around curiosity. The thoughts you entertain lead to the words you speak, and the actions you take. Curiosity will allow you to move in new directions and experience new things. Read more... (893 words, 6 images, estimated 3:34 mins reading time)

Word of the Day
Question- a sentence worded or expressed so as to elicit information.
One of the greatest powers we have in our mind is to create questions our minds have no choice but to answer. Most people don’t realize the power this gives them because the asking yourself the right questions will lead you to the answers that will enhance or limit your life. So it is important you learn to ask the right questions to receive the results you want to see in your life. This takes practice and an awareness of the questions you are already asking yourself each and every day. Evaluate if they are questions that are helpful or harmful and make changes accordingly. Your mind will help you find the answers and it all starts with being conscious of your words, thoughts, and actions when it comes to the questions you ask yourself and how you ask them. Read more...

There are questions we ask ourselves all of our lives that can haunt us if we let them. What if that decision was wrong? What if I shouldn’t have done that? What if I had tried out for the chess team in high school? What if I said yes?
There are a million of these questions that you can consume your time with, but they don’t add up to anything in the end because the fact is whatever you are “what if-ing” about didn’t happen, will never happen and so should concern you about as much as what the weather was in Borneo in the year 1656.

Questions Make Sense of Things
One area questioning can help understanding the world is making sense of things. How many times have we had an experience that was less than pleasant. A loss, a death, an accident or something else that on the surface is a totally negative experience. And that could be all it is, but when you ask the right question, you find out for sure. What is good about this situation that I don’t see at first? What are the benefits that I can’t see right now? How can my life benefit from this situation? Read more...
