“The key to wisdom is knowing all the right questions.”–John Simone
Believe it or not, the kind of questions you ask speak volumes about your inner life. Your questions trigger its own answers.
Some people like to ask questions like, ” Why am I so unlucky,” “Why had I not understood this earlier,”,” Why does life keeps teaching me lessons,” and ” Why do all the wrong people in the Universe have to meet me ” these questions are backward looking and answers would be always unsatisfactory. However, when people ask questions like, ” What can I learn from this experience,”,” Why do I get upset by other people’s reactions and situations,”- they’re looking forward and searching for a better life.
Ask yourself the right questions, reflect upon what you do all day before you hit the bed, if you want a better life.
