My Life Coaching teacher asked one of my classmates the following question:
“If you went to a fortune-teller, what area of your life would you most like to know about? And what would you like the fortune-teller to tell you about it?”
This morning, armed with a cup of tea, pen and paper, I sat down to answer that question for myself. And this is what I wrote:
“I don’t think I’d like to know. There’s something magic and exciting about imagining what wonderful things are going to happen.
“I won’t limit myself. I could be disappointed with what the fortune-teller tells me. Or I could start looking for that one particular thing, thus ruling out other possibilities.
“I’m constantly evolving and raising my vibration so my destiny is rapidly changing. Plus, I have free will.”
Every morning, I ask myself: “I wonder what wonderful things are going to happen today.” I want to remain open to that enthusiasm and opportunity.
There’s something powerful about asking questions that make you think outside the box. It can be really insightful to answer such questions. What would your answer be?
And if, like me, you enjoy lateral thinking, here are some more questions asked by the Life Coaching teacher last weekend:
- If you could be any age, what age would you be and why?
- If you were a fictional character, who would you be? Why?
- If you were immortal for a day, what would you do?
- If you could change your name, what would you change it to? Why?
- If you could be any drink, what would you be?
- How would the person who loves you most describe you?
- If you could wave a magic wand to give yourself an extra characteristic, what would it be?
- In five years’ time, what would you like your life to be like?
- If you knew you couldn’t fail and nobody would judge you, what would you do?
- What are the three most important things in your life?
