10 Thought-Provoking Questions

10 Questions to Spark Passionate Thoughts!

Ten questions that spark passionate thoughts about who you are, what you want out of life and where your journey might be headed.

Take some time to read through these questions and think about what they mean to you as well as what kind of answers you would provide. You might be surprised where this little exercise can lead.

1. How am I spending my time?

2. What would I do if I knew I could not fail?

3. Who am I becoming?

4. What am I tolerating?

5. Where do I focus my attention?

6. How am I using my talents?

7. Who do I spend my time with?

8. How do I honor my core values?

9. What do I want (materially, spiritually, career-oriented)?

10. How am I committed? Do I have any competing commitments?

I came across these questions on a website about life coaching. I have seen lists of questions like these many times – in fact – these are the types of questions I regularly ask my clients to explore. The standout for me, though, in this particular list, is number two – "What would I do if I knew I could not fail?"

This question and my answer took me back to my teens and twenties. Do you remember a time when all of your dreams seemed just within reach? That no amount of hard work and effort could keep you from success? I love this question because I think it can help people who feel unclear about their path focus on what they really want. By removing the fear of failure from the decision making process, we remove layers of uncertainty that can cloud the decision making process.
