Ask Better Question

A wise man can learn more from a foolish question than a fool can learn from a wise answer. – Bruce Lee

The quality of your life is directly linked to the questions that you ask.

Found this interesting article online. As usual, Upworthy shares inspiring posts.

How do you make a better life? By asking questions.

And the questions posted by Ben Franklin is truly interesting.

The 9 questions as follow:

1. Is there something you need help with?

2. Is anyone here starting a new project and is there a way we can help?

3. Anyone who’s doing innovative work?

4. Is there anyone whose friendship we want?

5. How can we use our networks to help each other?

6. Is there anyone we can mentor and encourage?

7. Can we give one another any personal/professional advice?

8. Can we improve anything about the circle itself?

9. Are there ways the circle should be connecting with and contributing to nearby communities?

How do you make a difference? How do you answer all these 9 questions?

Mayor Svante Myrick

Yesterday is not ours to recover, but tomorrow is ours to win or lose. – Lyndon B. Johnson

It’s an inspiring story on Upworthy.

A young mayor who is connected to his constituents with social media.

Messages reach him, uncensored.

A guy with a vision for his city.

A story from rag to inspiring others.

His situation is not a disadvantage to him. His poverty doesn’t restrict his potential.

Instead, it inspired him to do good.

Taking up works to support his study.

To be grateful of what the government has done for him, and him back to society, in return.

“We are successful when we take care of each other, when we look out for each other,” – Svante Myrick

Each and everyone of us has a situation that we are facing. Whether it is favorable or not favorable.

We can’t change what has happened to us. But we can change what we think and believe in. And we can change our reaction to it. We choose to respond, instead to react to it using knee-jerk response.

Have a good read of the article in Upworthy.

Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see a shadow. – Helen Keller

 

In a world where negativity spreads like wildfire, we need something to turn to.

Something to brighten our lives.

Something to hold faith.

That there is always goodness in humankind.

That there is always hope, regardless how unlikely it seems.

That we can make a difference, one small step at a time.

Which is why, I like to read posts from Upworthy.

It helps to keep my sanity in this crazy world.

It gives me hope and courage to make a dent in this world, leaving it a little better for tomorrow.

What is your daily dose of positive posts? Constantly read up on it. Be inspired to make a difference.
