When it comes to life transformation, asking the right questions is as important as it is when you are comparing high ticket items for possible purchase, diagnosing an illness, or trying to figure out what’s going on in your teenager’s life. Here are a few questions for consideration.
Change: Do you get any “alone” time, with no television, music, traffic, etc.?
CHANGE: Could your time with your Lord use some fine-tuning?
CHANGE: Have you been taking care of yourself? Physically, have you had your annual medical check-up? Are you getting appropriate exercise? Are you getting enough sleep? And, of course, with what kind of food are you fueling your body?
CHANGE: Is there a person in your life, be it family or friend, that disagreement, bitterness, or misunderstanding has hindered that relationship? To begin with a clean slate would be a positive change, right?
CHANGE: Have you had an opportunity to step back and look at the way you work, play, worship, plan? What would positive change in any of those areas look like?
CHANGE: If you could hold a mirror up to your life, what one characteristic (not cosmetic) might need some attention — patience, sense of humor, attitude, work ethic, compassion, problem solving, etc.? What? Do you want to see positive change in one of these areas?
CHANGE: Think big. Do you need to make a “major” change? What would you do if you weren’t afraid?
