The World. Life. Be Inspired

29 most striking Questions you must ask yourself this 2014

It’s barely a week into the brand new year and a lot of people are already back to work/school/Business etc. Some have made new year resolutions, others have set goals they hope to achieve. I’ve decided to share some striking questions that will help you free your mind and reflect more about life.

These questions have no right or wrong answers. Sometimes asking the right questions is the answer.

1. How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?

2. Which is worse, failing or never trying?

3. When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?

4. If happiness was the national currency, what kind of work would make you rich?

5. Are you doing what you believe in, or are you settling for what you are doing?
