Ask yourself these questions, and put yourself on a path to self-realization


Did you ever ask yourself what might be?

If I ask myself the following questions each day and answer them honestly, will it inspire me and help me to reach my God-given potential? I recognize these questions are personal; therefore, the answers are personal as well and are simply to cause us to think and perhaps to grow.

#1 Am I content with the direction my life is taking me today?

#2 Am I content with my character growth… today?

#3 Am I growing, or am I just standing still, marking time… or marching in place and going nowhere?

#4 If I remain where I am today, am I going to be fulfilled tomorrow?

#5 What needs to happen in my life to give me a definite sense of fulfillment in the future?

#6 What are the defining issues in my life today that determine whether I am going to possess a sense of genuine well-being and accomplishment of a life well lived tomorrow?

#7 Am I a dreamer, an imaginer?

#8 Do I think outside of the box?

#9 Do I visualize my dreams as being in the realm of reality, of possibility?

#10 Am I really living, or am I just existing?

#11 Do I really care for others, or am I self-absorbed?

#12 Do others know that I really care?

#13 Do I love my life?

(If I answered no to that one, perhaps I need an attitude adjustment.)

#14 Am I striving to improve myself daily?

#15 Do I associate with people that inspire me to be better than I am?

#16 Is the world a better place because of my having been here?

#17 Am I a good listener?

#18 Do I always strive to do the right thing?

#!9 Do I always strive to do the right thing today?

#20 Am I enjoying my life?

#21 Am I content with my spiritual condition?

#22 And the last question, which should be the first, is, do I have a living, breathing, vibrant relationship with Papa God TODAY?

Dear Father, please help me to serve rather than be served. Help me to build up rather than tear down. Help me to be a peacemaker instead of a dissenter. Thank you for first loving me, Papa God. In Jesus’ most blessed name, I ask this, Amen

Live simply,

Love generously,

Trust God, and make a difference, today
