Difficult questions

Difficult questions give rise to useful answers. Challenging problems compel valuable solutions.

What difficult questions have you been unwilling to ask? What challenging problems have you been avoiding?

In doing so, how much of life’s richness are you denying to yourself and to others? What joys, what achievements, what connections, what beautiful vistas are you failing to experience?

Maybe this week you could work up the nerve to dive into a problem that’s been vexing your life. Perhaps you could dare to ask one of those difficult questions and then work on an honest and useful answer.

Take the time, make the effort, and discover it’s not as bad as you feared it would be. Indeed, you’re likely to find it’s much more valuable than you hoped it would be.

Let go of your fear surrounding what’s difficult, challenging, inconvenient, uncomfortable. Open yourself to powerful possibilities that can raise your life to a whole new level.

— Ralph Marston
