Ask the Right Questions

I came to the realization this morning that I have been asking the wrong questions this whole time. On many occasions, I have been asking self-serving questions. The type of questions that won’t do anyone else much good.  I was not thinking of how I could be of better service to other people.

There’s a great audio from Earl Nightingale called “Attitude and Excellence” where he makes mention that we are on this earth to serve others. Nothing else. I heard the audio many times before, but I never really understood what he was really saying.

When asking a question, it is far more powerful to state it in a way that will help others rather than oneself. Ask how to bring value into people’s lives or how to make them happy. Give abundantly, take when necessary, and receive openly.
