10 questions you should ask yourself

Be all you can be, but it’s not always like in the books. I often see myself as somewhat content with my life and the way things are, but of course it’s hard to think of anything else when there are real issues to be discussed.

Still I aspire for something deeper and more meaningful.

So we’re all pelted with problems. Honestly it shouldn’t be hard to understand that everyone has problems, but when you feel tired of things or unmotivated, it may be a good moment to reevaluate things and stir them up.

Let’s take a moment for a little audit:

1. What do I really want?

The question of the ages. So many things you want to do with your life and so little time to even go about during the day.

Finding something that you are good at, can help realize that small step towards improvement. Diligence is the key to know that it is worth it.

2. Should I really change?

I wouldn’t call it “change”, let’s talk about “improvement”… I definitely believe that there is always space for improvement and everything and everyone can do better.

What to improve and what can we do better, that’s up to each of us to answer.

3. What’s the bright side in all of this?

With so much happening around us there seems to be no room for even considering that light at the end of the tunnel. We can still see it as something positive without undergoing so much scrutiny. And if it’s a train at the end of the tunnel, take it for a ride and see what makes the world go round!

4. Am I comfortable with what I’m doing?

There’s always the easy way and the right way when it comes to deciding what goes with which shoes, or purse, shirt and all that. It doesn’t take a genius to see yourself as someone unique, or else we’ll all be equally the same in everything we do. Variety brings in very interesting and exciting questions to be experimented.

Staying in your comfort zone won’t take you far and sticking to an uncomfortable situation will only make things worse. Everything requieres leaving your comfort zone and search for what brings you happiness and growth.

5. Have I done enough for myself?

Have you, or is there something more you want to do? Discontentment in every aspect can be dangerous in large doses, but in small amounts you’ll be able to see and do stuff you could never imagine doing. Think about this but don’t be hard on yourself, we are all trying our best.

6. Am I happy at where I am today?

If not, why? And, what can you do to improve your situation? It is very important to remember that happiness comes from within, find that happiness, no matter how difficult things may be, there are things you can still control and make better.

7. Am I taking care of myself?

You should always remember it will always be for your own benefit. Self care comes in different ways and options, and it’s very important to practice it everyday.

People care about people who care about themselves.

8. How much could I have?

I suppose in this case there is no such thing as having too much or too little, but it’s more on how badly you really need it. I’d like to have everything in life, no denying that, but the question is: how much are you willing to work for it?

9. What motivates me?

What motivates you? It’s an answer you have to find out for yourself. There are so many things that can make everyone happy, but to choose one of them may be the hardest part. It’s not like you can’t have one serving of your favorite food in a buffet and that’s it. Just try it piece by piece.

10. What Really Makes You Tick?

So? What really makes you tick? You can be just about anything you always wanted to be, but to realize that attaining something that may seem very difficult is already giving up before you even start that journey. Always remember, that self-improvement is not just about the physical or philosophical change you have to undergo, but it’s something that you really want.
