QUESTIONS TO PONDER: 10 Questions That Create Success

I am always fascinated by questions, and have quite a large personal collection gathered over the years from a multitude of sources.

I often like to apply them in all my spheres of daily activity, so that  I can get to ponder about my own personal growth, as well as to help me focus quickly on what really matters.

Here's a great sampling from Geoffrey James writing in the 'Sales Source' column of the widely-read online magazine.

1. Have I made certain that those I love feel loved?

2. Have I done something today that improved the world?

3. Have I conditioned my body to be more strong flexible and resilient?

4. Have I reviewed and honed my plans for the future?

5. Have I acted in private with the same integrity I exhibit in public?

6. Have I avoided unkind words and deeds?

7. Have I accomplished something worthwhile?

8. Have I helped someone less fortunate?

9. Have I collected some wonderful memories?

10. Have I felt grateful for the incredible gift of being alive?
