Life Changing Questions

The reality of life is that we are only here temporarily.

Whether you like it or not, the ONLY thing certain in life is death – everything else is a probability. Will you have a job tomorrow? Maybe. Will you even wake up tomorrow? Maybe.  Will you be able to get to age 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90? Maybe and the list goes on. It’s quite morbid to think about life this way and honesty the first time you begin to think about life as a very uncertain cobweb of cause and effect you will likely feel more anxious and a bit unnerved. But I honestly feel there is more benefit then loss with removing this fake veil of certainty and hubristic ignorance that covers the lives of most people.

With death on the mind – life becomes more finite – and therefore more precious. Your problems compared to the infinite which is death begin to look less vicious and eventually your mind begins to focus on the things that are truly important. So why don’t you start this transformation now and better your life? It’s never too late to reinvent yourself and reinvent how you look at and perceive your life. This list of 114 questions will help you get started on the right path. I hope and pray even one of these questions resonate within you and become the spark that transforms you life!
