Why Questions Are The Answer!

By Garry Zancanaro

Asking questions is one of the most basic ways that we all learn

and grow. The questions we ask other people, and even more

importantly, the questions we ask ourselves, can have a dramatic

impact on our self improvement, success and happiness.

There are times when we find ourselves with problems, in

difficult situations, or even in a position where we feel

completely overwhelmed. It can be very easy to say 'what have I

done to deserve this?' or 'why does this always happen to me?'

However, these questions are destructive and only serve to

prepare us for future disappointments. In fact, they can actually

guarantee it! The questions we ask ourselves reflect our state of

mind, reinforce our beliefs and have a huge impact on our


We all need to make a concerted effort to ask ourselves

empowering questions that encourage and promote positive

thoughts, rather than destructive questions that reinforce

negative thought patterns and behaviour.

We all experience events that seem just too much for us to deal

with, but in almost any situation, no matter how bad it may seem,

there is usually something positive that can be found. Actively

looking for positives and asking the right questions can make all

the difference.

Actually asking the question 'what can I learn from this?' is a

great starting point, even if you only learn what not to do in

the future. But you can go much further. It has often been said

that when one door closes another opens; and that in every

setback lies opportunity. Things usually happen for a reason.

When something happens that may seem like the worst possible

outcome, very often it turns out to be just the opposite.

Many people have achieved their greatest successes as a direct

result of events that seemed like disasters at the time. Don't

just stare at the closed door - why not try asking yourself what

opportunities are now available, or what doors have just opened

for you? Try approaching the situation from a completely

different angle and actively look for viewpoints you hadn't

considered. You may be amazed what you come up with. At the very

least, it will improve your state of mind, start you thinking

more positively and creatively, and may just change you life.

"A major stimulant to creative thinking is focused questions.

There is something about a well-worded question that often

penetrates to the heart of the matter and triggers new ideas and

insights." - Brian Tracy
