I read an article by Mark and Crystal Hansen about how to be better at asking questions and why it matters. In it, they suggested asking the right questions helps us to strive to become better, and when we strive to become better, everything around us becomes better too. Asking the right questions helps us to discover and transcend our limitations. Asking the right questions will help you to discover what your expectations are for your life, what your expectations are for others and your highest potential and service to humanity.
Asking questions affords continual advancement to the next step toward manifesting your dreams for a better life or better way of living. When we ask, inquire and question each other and allow the answers to come it can bring new understanding, or give feedback to improve a relationship, a project or personal goal.
But how do you know you’re asking the right kind of questions?
The Hansen’s offered four elements to put into practice to help strengthen your results:
- Belief– believe and trust the answer is there somewhere, waiting for you. Expect it.
- Action – take steps in the direction of your dreams even if you don’t have all the answers yet. Positive motion will help prompt more questions and open you up to being curious so your requests and inquiries become bigger and more relevant.
- Visualisation – your imagination can create positive images and feelings around the answers you are seeking. Let yourself create mental pictures of your issues being resolved, relationships healed, wishes come true and dreams fulfilled.
- Prayer –there is a wisdom in your practice that will become your greatest ally in fulfilling your destiny.
They then suggest journaling your answers the following questions:
Define your desires – what is it you really want? More cooperation? More intimacy? More friendship? More riches? More adventure? More love?
Connect to your core beliefs – what is driving your current state? Do you think you’re not worthy? Do you think your happiness is yours or someone else’s responsibility? Do you believe you deserve to have your greatest desires fulfilled?
Understanding someone else’s core beliefs – it is important to understand where someone else is coming from. How can you better understand other people’s core beliefs who matter to you? Asking is the key to understanding the people who are important in your personal or work life.
Honour your values – what is it that you would not be willing to compromise on, ever? Define it so you can ask for more understanding and honouring of your values when your values are challenged.
Heal misunderstandings – what does it cost you to hang on to the hurt? What do you gain by releasing it and starting over with a clean slate? What steps do you need to take for your to release this?
Discover the truth – everyone’s experiences are different. What we think is the truth is our own subjective view based on our own experiences. Ask others what their experience or reality is and have a better understanding of what really happened.
Define the next steps – where do you want to go to from here? What do you want to get out of the experience? What do you see as the best resolution or conclusion? Where od you see yourself in a year, or five years from now?
Is this the key to getting better, smarter, wiser, faster and strong in life?

Maybe, as long as one properly listens to and for the answers 🤔
