Goal #1 for 2015-Be Curious

Curiosity is tied to intelligence and health in body, mind, and soul in multiple ways.   Remember when you were a kid and you drove your parents or your grandparents nuts with all the questions?  You had to ask those questions as you developed as a person in order to know how to get by in this world.    What happens as we age is most of us lose that childlike quality of wanting to know "why?"  Sometimes we just aren't paying attention or other times we just aren't interested.  It could also be that we don't want to come off as being dumb or uneducated.  No ones knows about everything so the first thing I want to encourage you to do is to start asking "why" and "how" questions.   After doing so hopefully you will comment about some of your experiences so all of us can learn from it.
Being a curious person means that you have a thirst for knowledge and a desire to explore subjects and places that may be foreign to you.  Delving deeper into your faith life, learning a new language,  starting a garden,  finding out about the planets or the stars, or learning just about anything out of your comfort zone will help your life grow and prosper.  Curious people tend to have better and more intense relationships with others as well.   As an example there are many studies that show how studying anything new will help you prepare for a test, no matter what the subject.  Click here or here if you are interested in learning more.

Out of the "8 Goals To Live By In 2015" my first is to encourage you to learn something new.  If if frightens you to do so then that's probably a good thing.  The main thing is that you step out of your routine and learn about a new subject, start a new hobby,  travel to that far-away place you've always dreamed about,  or write that book you've always said you would write. 

Next time I will be sharing how generosity is one of the keys to happiness in 2015 and beyond!

"Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is--his good, pleasing and perfect will."

Romans 12:2

  1. Every Year is cold a new start. Way not to bebining anew when ever you fell you are mistaken! No matter witch month we have?????

  2. Yes, I agree. I think adding a new venture (or adventure) is possible for most like I, without giving up other good times and commitments. Rather it can be just "making" the time to do that which we always wanted to do but assumed we did not have the time, energy or funds. I am going to re-schedule my days so I get my new ventures prioritized and done early in the day so I am relaxed and my mind is not muddled with other things I might otherwise have done first. I think my difficulty getting to "my" time was putting what I want last, thus often I was too tired and it got put off repeatedly. As to having the funds if that is needed, I know if it is something or somewhere I need funds for, it can be found easier if I prioritize and be patient to save whatever I need. Prayer to ask Him if it is "good" and then in His Blessing will lead me to the right goal and success.
