Growing up I asked a lot of questions. I’m inquisitive. I’m driven.
My thought process is to ask a lot of questions and try to understand something new before I try it. I’m cautious.
I get frustrated when my questions aren’t answered because I feel like I don’t understand the process of something before trying it. I don’t like to jump into something not knowing the process, the how to or the goal.
Whether it was learning to drive a stick shift vehicle or learning to cross country ski. I wanted to KNOW how it worked, wanted to understand what was happening before I sat in the front seat or before I went down the slope and what the end results should be!
My motto is:
Never stop asking questions. When you stop asking questions you stop learning. When you stop learning you stop growing. When you stop growing you start dying. Own your tomorrow by asking questions and growing.
Several other ways, outside of asking many questions, that I feel have helped me and will help me Own My Tomorrow are:
Learning from parents – Each of our parents have trod the road ahead of my husband and I. Seeking their counsel can be wise and listening to their advice can be beneficial.
Listening to others- Surround yourself with wise people. If we want to learn how to deepen our marriage relationship then we will surround ourselves with others who have a successful and deep passion for their marriage. We will not surround ourselves with those who have left relationships behind and not fought for their love. This goes in all aspects of our lives…raising our family, financial decisions and actions. The list goes on.
Encouraged to make right choices- Growing up I was taught and encouraged to make the right choices, no matter who around me was making wrong choices. My parents wise words to me often were – “if (fill in a name) jumps off of the bridge are you?” Meaning just because so-and-so is doing something doesn’t mean it’s right and doesn’t mean you have to follow.
Work ethic- Strengthening today for a promising future by instilling in me a work ethic taught by principle and example. I’m forever grateful for this.
I’m thankful for those who have influenced me to Own My Tomorrow.
