A Big Question


by Jessie Gardner November 07, 2017

Your positive disruption for the day is a question.

I’ve been hearing questions percolating lately and it goes something like this:

Why don’t we have this?

Why doesn’t someone create that?

Why isn’t anyone doing anything about this?

Why isn’t anyone talking about that?

I’ve always been a fan of Tony Robbin's wisdom that the quality of our lives is determined by the questions we ask ourselves.

The questions that hike to the ridge of our minds (beyond the worries and to-do’s) are there for a reason.

The conversations we are begging to have aren’t there by happenstance and our stories and struggles aren’t a coincidence.

When you see a problem that needs solving or an idea that hasn’t been explored, do you default to the thought that someone else should find a solution or that it’s already being done?

Have you ever thought about the possibility that the questions and ideas that keep climbing their way to the top of your mind are unique to you?

I believe they are.

I think the questions that concern us, cause us to google information until our fingers fall off, light our curiosity on fire and challenge our model of the world is our purpose speaking.

It was when I let go of the pressure to find the “right” answers and started paying attention to the questions, that I began to find clarity in my life:

  • Why am I spending all my time doing something I don’t love?
  • Why haven’t I painted lately?
  • What do I want to leave behind in this world?
  • Is this an idea that could help people and become a business?

Our life begins to fill with meaning when we throw up a stop sign in the middle of the busy marathon of a life we are running and pay attention to the questions we have about our life, relationships, and the world.

So, my question and positive disruption for you after a busy day is, what is your question?

Just for a moment, take off the mammoth-size weight you are putting on yourself to have all the answers.

Instead, pay attention to the questions, the ideas, the things your souls wonders about.

And if you let it happen, questions become discussions which become insights which become actions which can become life-changers.

It wasn’t the answers that changed my life, it was the questions.

Cheers to the questions sitting on your heart tonight,

Jessie
