As Q4NP grows and begins to take shape, you may wonder if it’s worth your valuable reading time or not. Is this website for you? Are you a part of the target audience? Do you need a new perspective? Do you want to be encouraged to be different to make a difference?
Here are some questions to ask yourself (in no particular order):
- Is your worldview limited to the area and culture where you live?
- Are your ideas and attitudes about the world expanding?
- Do you think about your purpose in life? Do you find yourself asking how you can make a difference in the world?
- What are your goals in life? Do you have goals?
- Are you conscientious about how you spend your time? money?
- Do you see people in crisis on TV who live in other parts of the world and wonder how you can help?
- Do you live paycheck to paycheck?
- What do you value? What are your priorities in life?
- What is sacred in your life?
- Are you so busy with life that you hardly have time to enjoy it?
- On a scale of 1-10 with 10 being ecstatic and 1 being utter defeat, how would you rate your level of happiness?
- On the same scale, how would you rate your satisfaction with your life?
- Have you or are you fulfilling the dreams you had for your life 10 years ago? 20 years ago?
- Are your beliefs a core foundation of who you are or are they something you’ve turned into a religious exercise for an hour or so each week?
- Do you have a passport?
- Are you consumed by consumption? How many of your goals and dreams have to do with acquiring material things? How much money could you give to a charitable organization if you cut your shopping budget in half each month?
- Do the relationships in your life feed you or drain you?
It is my belief that many people live life with a limited worldview under time and financial constraints that suck the joy out of their life and turn it into a mere existence. They follow the lead of the media and the culture to determine what to buy, what to wear, what to drive, where to live, and what to say. They are consumed with self. They live for temporary pleasures.
Of course, I’m not talking about me or you. : )
I’m no expert. I’m just an observer. I’ve been in the people business for over 25 years and, while I know some incredible people who are living amazing lives, I also see many people who are self-consumed and narrow-minded when it comes to the world around them and how they can contribute to it.
Wherever you happen to be in life, I want to encourage you along the way. That’s why Q4NP is here.
