What I Wonder...
Listen to my thoughts about Tony Robbins' quote in the video below.
(NOTE: Yes, *I* wrote any captions you see in this video. It's called self-deprecation, and it's mostly a healthy thing (I think!).)
This is an interesting quote by Tony Robbins, it really is. Not only does it get us to focus on the questions we ask - of ourselves and of others - but I believe it also asks us what the questions mean to us?
For example, as I mention in the video, here are some questions I might ask myself:
Why do I feel anxious?
Why do people do what they do?
Why do I struggle in some of my relationships?
And the beauty of knowingly asking myself these questions is that I can now take a closer look at the question. I can now wonder to myself if these questions are quality questions, and I can also wonder why these questions are important to me?
In fact, better questions might be (don't you think?) the following questions:
Why does it matter that I feel anxious sometimes?
Why do I want to know why people behave the way they do?
Why does the fact that I struggle in some of my relationships matter to me?
The answers to the first set of questions feel like answers that may or may not be of benefit to me.
Whereas the answers to the second set of questions feel much more important and useful - much more 'real', and to the crux of things...
And I dare say you can ask even better questions than the ones I've asked.
Okay, then, so how about it! Can you think of some better questions that I might ask myself?
Can you think of some quality questions for yourself even, for where you are in your life right now? (Just a few minutes should do it, y'know, to find a quality question or three.)
And whilst you're thinking about quality questions and the meaning of (any of the) Tony Robbins quotes, here's a final question I have for you about 'me, me, me'...
MY QUESION FOR YOU: How can I get more people (like you) to leave feedback on my videos or on my thoughts on the inspirational quotations?
(Look forward to reading your replies. Thanks.)
What YOU wonder?...
Yes, I'd love to know your thoughts on these inspirational quotes by Tony Robbins, or your answer to my question about feedback, or even to know what your own quality questions are right now... You can always leave comments below! :-)
Thanks for reading, Steve
