The Power in a Question

Do you love the feeling that comes when you have made a decision?

When you have Answer!

I do. After all from that point of understanding we may move forward with confidence. But, what do you do when the answer is not clear? Do you move forward with as much confidence?

These past few weeks I had been giving consideration to an idea. I thought I had new insight and my answer. I was ready to move forward. Then I looked at my notes one more time and what I found was not an answer at all. As much as I tried I just did not have the next step. I was stuck.

A bit of frustration set in, then a laugh, a smile and a really good question got me moving again. I may not have my answer and yet I am no longer worried. My curiosity has me focused. I am challenged, back in action, immersed in discovery.

This is the power of a question!

There are plenty of places ready to offer an answer. Each data point sure of the truth provided. It is easy and even at times appropriate to accept the answer and move forward. However, if you find that you are not ready to step into the path provided, then consider a step to the side. With each bit of new information there is an opportunity to ask; is this Fact or Fiction? Is this part of my answer or just an answer? Imagine what might come if you just decided to ask one more question.

One of the really great things about being a Coach is I have the privilege of providing a few questions and an opportunity for my clients to Play with possibilities. So, this month no answers, just a few of my favorite questions. Go ahead, take a challenge or an opportunity and gives this questions a try.

From the universe of possible questions

How committed are you?

If this is true, what would that mean to you?

Remember, you may not have the answer right now but you always have a question. In the question discovery begins, moving you forward into action. If we are to find our most authentic joyful self then let’s get comfortable playing with the possibilities that exist inside the questions.

“Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.”  Marie Curie
