The Power of Curiosity

The Power Of Curiosity.
By: Diane Lang

Curiosity plays a role in finding our true self.
What are you curious about? What do you find yourself think about frequently?
What do you want to learn more about? What do you find yourself questioning?
Follow this curiosity.
It’s a clue of what your next steps are. Curiosity brings us interest, hope and motivation.
Curiosity makes you question life and questions helps you move forward and make better choices.
What are you curious about?

Using curiosity to live your best life.

1. On-going learning -we need to keep learning to keep growing. Every week try to learn something new and expand your knowledge base. Watch a Ted Talk, read a new book or magazine, etc.
Anytime you say, “I don’t Know” take a minute to realize you can find out. We live in a world where the Internet is at our fingertips. When you don’t know something go figure it out. This will add to our on-going learning.
* The happiest people continue to learn and grow both professionally and personally.

2. Take risks – when the outcome is certain, it losses the element of surprise and hope. If we go to a sport’s game and know who is going to win, it loses its excitement.
Not knowing what could happen gives us excitement, the motivation to get the outcome we want and it gives hope that we might just reach it. Taking risks gives us uncertainty but also gives us hope and the possibilities that come with it. Even if it doesn’t turn out the way we want it, we realize we can survive any situation. We get positive reinforcement for even trying.
* Taking risks adds to our success – the most successful people take daily risks.

3. Ask more questions – always grow by asking others why or how? Evaluate your own life by asking yourself important questions.
Ask the deeper questions to find your spiritual side:
Why are we here?
Is there a god or higher power?
What is our purpose?
These types of questions help us to connect to our spiritual side, to see the bigger picture and know we are all connected. It gives us an appreciation for life, nature and all the small things we take for granted.

4. Try something new everyday – go through each day with the eyes of a child. When everything you did was for the first time. We need new things to add variety, creativity and excitement to our lives. Even small things like trying a new food or drink, adds to our excitement levels.
* Creativity/Variety add to our happiness levels.

5. Try to live a day without judgment. Instead be curious to why people do things or behave in certain ways? Empathy is key here, instead of judging try to put yourself in their shoes.

6. Explore your passions – passions are things that excite you, that wake you up in the morning. Some passions will come and go but the only way to know if the passion is true or fleeting is to go for it.For example: If you have a passion for art, take an art class. Explore your passions and see where it takes you. Be open to whatever new possibilities and opportunities it brings you.

7. Be curious with others – in conversations give people permission to talk about themselves by asking people questions about themselves and being an active listener. Really listening and learn about a person, it gives us deeper connections to
