Ask the Hard Questions

Consider these questions for a moment:

  • What kind of a spouse and parent am I going to be?
  • Am I going to excel at my job or just do the minimum to collect a pay check?
  • What do I stand for?
  • Do I have a plan to reach my dreams and/or goals? Do I have goals?
  • Am I following the path of least resistance or do I dare to stretch myself with hard things?
  • Do I flounder trying to keep up with the "thick of thin things" or focus on what is most important to me?
  • How much time do I really waste?
  • Am I taking time for good recreation and intermissions?
  • How well am I taking care of myself? Sleep? Nutrition? Exercise?
  • Do I know my standards and stick to them - unwavering?
Hard questions? Maybe. Are questions like these important? Yes! Continually, at any age, you need to ask the hard questions that matter to you and dare to have an opinion. If you don't like the answers, you can change. You are the ringmaster of your circus!
