They say curiosity killed the cat but you are not a cat, right? The more willing you are to search for problems, the faster you can connect with other people and acquire resources.
Did you know there are four benefits of being curious which can be a key to success in any kind of role you play?
Do you understand what it means to be a problem solver?
Having several useful abilities gives you more options and enhances your creative thinking skills.
After you improve your creativity, you will take the same problem and understand it from all possible angles.
All you need to do is learn how to observe, then you will make an assumption, test it out with people before you commit to anything. I often use myself to test things on before I send it to somebody else.
That allows me to build a database full of experiments.
After that, you can invent a few possible solutions, and go back to try them out to get feedback.
From there you will learn exactly how valuable your assumptions were and optimize your invention to focus on the detail.
When you develop a better mindset, you will unlock your own ability to watch and decide quickly.
The more patterns you can see the better you will become at predicting.
With an improved curiosity, you can stumble across new angles that no one else can find. That will increase your chance of doing things first.
This is also one of several parts needed to become a creative person.
Why am I talking about curiosity and creativity together? Because when you are looking for answers, you stop obsessing about your past problems.
Instead of seeing things the same way that got you stuck… You will have a way to seek out the solutions.
With that becoming your new focus, you start to gain hope, passion, and motivation.
The deeper you can get into your search, the bigger the problems you will find. It doesn’t end when you find a simple solution because you will be learning to look past the symptoms to find the roots of things.
Then by building up that knowledge base, you go from curious to understanding.
This is important because you want to understand a sizable range of things. That is what will give you the best options.
You start with one question that grows into thousands before the real challenge begins.
How do you decipher what questions are helpful and which ones aren’t?
This is where I come in to help you because I know the exact process. You will be much better off by following the tips that I give to you.
Using your imagination, I want you to start an exercise that will pull the exact questions out and help lead you to where you want to go.
To do this you are going to be looking at categories of the things in your current situation that you want to become better.
Here’s an example: Let’s say you want to find a solution to what causes your anxieties.
You start by listing the things you know cause them. After that, you list what you suspect is causing them.
Follow that up with the things you think are the most important.
This creates three categories and now you can start coming up with several questions for each of them.
Next, you will organize those questions into facts versus fiction.
What you will end up having are four different areas to help you reduce the amount of anxiety that you experience.
In one category you will track what you know is true. This means that you are only interested in what works for you.
The next one will consist of the questions you come up with. Those you will base on what you believe is worth your time. So, you need to prove whether they work or fail.
Going further you will test your imagination and come up with a plan for you to practice. The last part is evaluating everything you have come up with.
Here are four categories:
- What is the challenge or issue you are facing?
- What do you know about it already?
- Why does it need to be changed?
- How do you think you can change it?
Now, before you go off and just start coming up with things make sure you understand what you are doing.
Creativity is your capability to conceive or come up with an original idea.
With anxiety, your main focus is to learn how you can overcome your feelings. This process can also be called creativity and innovation because it’s all about putting a new idea into use, or one that will work specifically for you.
Develop your curiosity because it will allow for these:
- Increases your ability to learn new things – Passion
- It changes you from being misguided to being open-minded. – Hope
- Creates motivation because you learn to do things yourself. – Motivation
- It creates the opportunity to solve other people’s challenges. – Desire/Purpose
Curious about your potential and the benefits that follow?
This leads to your potential and all that really is about is your capabilities which need to be unlocked. To put it a different way, you want to find out what interests you right now that could change your life tenfold.
The reason you are doing this is to know more about yourself, but it’s also the best way to understand how you can become focused rather than just curious.
It then means that your curiosity leads you to become focused and now you can concentrate on what you want outta life. By taking your focus and developing your other skills, what you get is a process that will help you strive to become your best.
Quickly let’s look at these benefits, you’re looking for something that gives you an edge and means you become passionate. Because passion is a key factor motivating you to keep trying, it will also build up your hope and desire to do more.
Those four things mean you can create different ways to advance your abilities. Before you decide on what you should do, you will need to evaluate yourself.
By doing the evaluation you gain a full understanding of where you are and can then create a map to get to where you want.
I revealed to you a secret. That is when you get curious, you gain everything else you need to learn to become successful and accomplish your wishes.
Knowing that just one question will lead you to whatever you want is good news. This makes it just a matter of time and effort to get there.
Curiosity creates your desire to know things…
Sounds obvious right? Hear me out, this isn’t common sense anymore.
You will only get to where you want to be when you are willing to ask the best questions. This changes you from being idle and having no idea of what you should be doing.
Into someone who can create strategies, plans, and takes daily action.
Sometimes it’s forgotten that you must not just expect things to fall into your lap. That reality still says you must try your best to discover what you’re capable of.
This also means you create value when you start to gain and understand who you want to become. There are three levels of becoming a creative person.
The first level is all about discovery, which is just simply knowing who you are and what you want to become. Then there is the invention which means you put all the pieces of information together.
You aren’t done just because you have found a few answers, you continue to place the pieces together until you get the best outcome.
That outcome is the creation where you build something from an idea. To gather your ideas into a process is called creativity. That creativity and creation build something of value and can help benefit yourself and others.
When you are capable of creation you will possess a special skill or ability that can change people’s lives. That will give you one of the best feelings possible and extend your reach to the entire world.
Think about it from the perspective of a child who dreams of becoming that superstar athlete. What does your influence do for them? It inspires other things which will keep our world going to become even more incredible.
Your purpose is the result of becoming creative…
Curiosity got you started asking all the right questions, from there you develop a passion for doing something that develops along the way.
It’s from your own hopes, desires, and motivations that you continue to grow and eventually are capable of helping yourself and others.
Your options are endless and the number of other people that you help to discover things about themselves grows daily.
So here is a promise you can make yourself:
Success in life isn’t possible unless you first decide that today is the time you will look for answers. That you will not just sit back and expect your life to change for the better on its own.
You will take all the actions necessary to increase your creativity in order to gain the abilities you need. Then, to keep pushing yourself to the limits, your effort will only make a difference in your own life before you will become an inspiration for generations.
All of this gives you a life purpose, it’s now easy to understand what you can do to help yourself out. Because you are willing and now fully invested in yourself, your dreams really can come true.
What did you learn from these four benefits of being curious?
That you have to ask questions to start understanding things, nobody but you is going to make your life great, that you have to be open-minded to find the best answers, and that you will create value when you solve challenges.
