What makes successful people persistent and persistent in achieving their goals and desires?
One who has a reason to live can bear almost any how. — Voltaire
Voltaire answered briefly.
Successful people put in the effort to ask the right questions that motivate them to answer, which adds meaning to their goal.
The more questions you ask yourself, the more you learn about yourself. It keeps curiosity and gratitude for life and its problems. Your innate desire to ask yourself questions and find answers will keep you on the path to self-development and allow you to make motivated efforts to achieve your goals.
When you know why, it becomes clearer what and how. And you will find all your answers only when you seek them by asking questions.
Questions that make you think are like fuel for critical thinking and problem solving. If you can't stop to ask questions, you will never find a better way, and that will be the end of growth.
If you want to move forward, you really need self-esteem and clarity. The right questions will always help you get a clearer picture of your aspirations and dreams.
Here is a selection of 100 questions that will make you think and get you started on the path to wisdom:
