My 78th task is to “Answer the 50 Questions That Will Free Your Mind” and I decided to break it up in parts. Each part will have a total of 10 questions.
1. How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are? – If I didn’t know how old I am, I would probably tell people that I’m about 25….which is just one year older than I actually am. I feel my age.
2. Which is worse, failing or never trying? – Never trying is definitely worse in my opinion. Failure is a part of life and most of the time, you gain something much more than what you were looking for. On the other hand, if you never try you don’t gain anything.
3. If life is so short, why do we do so many things we don’t like and like so many things we don’t do? – I think because we don’t really know what we want to begin with. We spend so much of our lives worried about and giving attention to irrelevant things that we don’t focus on our purpose for even existing. When you search for purpose you begin to discover more things about yourself…you grow and you eventually learn what it is you want out of life. Then you can spend the rest of your time doing what it is you want to do.
4. When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done? – No! I do have a tendency to be a “big dreamer” but I accomplish most of what I set out to do.
5. What is the one thing you’d most like to change about the world? – If I could change anything, I would change how much hatred flows through the hearts of a lot of people. I think if the hatred in their hearts can be removed or dealt with, the violence in the world would decrease. I think families and relationships could be restored and the world would be a better place.
6. If happiness was the national currency, what kind of work would make you rich? – Being able to own my own business. Just having the freedom to get up and work for myself and not worry about money or a dead-end job would make me so happy!
7. Are you doing what you believe in, or are you settling for what you are doing? – Unfortunately, I’m settling for what I’m doing.
8. If the average human life span was 40 years, how would you live your life differently? – I would spend a lot LESS time talking and more time doing. I would do a better job of saving my money and I would also focus more on building relationships than just trying to meet new people.
9. To what degree have you actually controlled the course your life has taken? – God has controlled my life but I have played a part in seeing it through. I try to listen to Him and follow his guidance.
10. Are you more worried about doing things right, or doing the right things? – I think I’m more worried about doing things right. I don’t usually do wrong…at least not intentionally.
This first set was pretty easy to answer. I’m not sure if my mind is on a path to being free yet…but we’ll see. Try and answer them yourself and see what you come up with.
