Your mind is naturally driven to solve any puzzle and answer any question you give it. Let’s apply that concept and see what happens.
Again, if you present your brain with a question, your mind will be quick to try to answer it.
What do you think will happen if you ask yourself, “What’s wrong with me?”
You will immediately attempt to provide answers to the question, such as:
- I make stupid decisions.
- I don’t think things through.
- I am insecure and lack confidence.
- I’m ugly and my momma dresses me funny.
Yay! You’re definitely uncovering answers to life’s most important questions there!
Or, you are wasting valuable resources answering poor quality questions. Likewise, answers to bad questions won’t ever be much good.
And now, knowing that the quality of your questions determines the quality of your answers, you can actively ask yourself better questions.
