Unlocking Answers: The Power of Curiosity.

Jan 28, 2024

At Life By Design Leadership, we serve as certified leadership and life coaches.  Our role involves delving deep into the lives of our clients through the art of questioning. We don't just ask questions; we craft them, ensuring each one is open-ended and designed to encourage a flow of thoughts and emotions. As a coach my training has honed my ability to listen intently, to hear not just the words but the stories and feelings they convey. With the curiosity of a detective, I gently probe, guiding my clients to unearth the hidden emotions and thoughts that lie beneath the surface. These discoveries often unlock the door to their next steps, helping them envision and embrace their dreams and future selves.


Even with well-honed skills, I was humbled and challenged to the very core as I read a book by Mark Victor Hansen and Crystal Dwyer Hansen entitled Ask! The Bridge from Your Dreams to Your Destiny.  As good books do, this book showed me on an entirely different level how asking good questions can lead to unique possibilities. Conversely, if we fail to continue asking difficult questions when life gets tough, we acquiesce to a less-than-desirable life.

As we journey through life, we inevitably encounter periods of hardship and scarcity. It's a universal experience, this yearning for more - more love, greater success in business, deeper relationships, enhanced understanding, and wisdom - yet, often, we hesitate to reach out and ask for these things. Many of us, myself included, have settled for less than we desire or even deserve. This act of settling, of accepting less than what is available to us, is something I believe many can relate to. If you're reading this, chances are you've felt this too. You're not alone in this experience, and it's a shared feeling that connects us all, prompting us to reflect on our lives and aspire for more.

In the following few blogs, we will explore:

  • Why do we fail to ask questions?
  • What does it take to ask ourselves (or others) better questions?
  • How can courageous questions help our relationships, families, and careers?
  • Then, finally, how do good questions contribute to your happiness and purpose for being born at this precise moment in history?

Destiny may seem to be a birthright of our humanity, yet it's rare to encounter someone who has stumbled upon their life's purpose by chance. Even individuals who seem touched by extraordinary luck, blessed with remarkable talents, or destined for success have not simply been carried to their achievements on the wings of fate. Digging deeper into their journeys reveals a common thread: a fervent dedication to preparation and an unwavering commitment to chasing their dreams. The myth of "overnight" success is just that—a myth. In reality, these stories are the culmination of relentless effort and perseverance.

There is a parable that Jesus told of a woman who had ten valuable coins and lost one. She tore her house apart, looking in every nook and cranny for that one lost coin--relentlessly looking until her coin was found. Once secure, she gathered her friends and threw a party to celebrate.  

This vividly captures the essence of wholeheartedly pursuing the treasures life has to offer, embodying the pursuit of our deepest dreams, desires, and aspirations. It's a testament to the power of relentlessly seeking, asking, and discovering, never ceasing until we find fulfillment. This journey, marked by unwavering determination, is truly admirable and a beacon for anyone aiming to realize their life's potential.
