As I wrote here, it is really important to ask yourself questions. Asking questions not only expands your view of the world, but also helps you explore yourself and get to know yourself better. When you know yourself well, this opens so many doors to you, it is even hard to imagine. I am publishing these questions here as a resource, and also as a helping tool for situations that you would like to change or get clarity about.

General questions:

  • What would you like to explore and understand about the world?
  • If you could do anything you want at any moment, what would you be doing right now?
  • What would happen if everything suddenly arranges exactly as you wanted it to be?
  • What do you think is the best thing that could happen to you?
  • What do you want?
  • What support do you need in order to achieve what you want?
  • Which question, if answered, would have the biggest impact on your future?
  • What is the most important thing you’ve learned? What is your biggest discovery or revelation so far?
  • Which is the next level of thinking that you can get to?
  • When you are 95, what would you like to say about your life?
  • What would you like to do 5 years from now?
  • What is the purpose of your life?
  • What plans do you want to make?
  • What are your next steps? When are you going to do them?

Questions for situations:

  • How does this fit into your plans/lifestyle/values?
  • What opportunity do you see in this?
  • What is the challenge in this situation?
  • What is exciting for you in this situation?
  • What is the conclusion about this?

  • What do you need in order to finish/complete this?
  • What are you ready to do differently?
  • What assumptions do you have to test, thinking about this situation?
  • What is missing in the picture so far? What do you need more clarity about?
  • If there is one more thing that has not been said, which will help you get to a deeper level of understanding and clarity, what is that thing?
  • What is needed in order for the situation to be changed?
  • What is the thing that, if true, would allow you to feel completely engaged and motivated about this situation?
  • What is your plan B?
  • What is your biggest obstacle?
  • What else do you need to consider?
  • What actions are you going to take? And after that?
  • What other points of view can you think of?
  • What are your other options?
  • How can you make this more fun?
  • If you could start everything all over again, what would you do differently?
