30 Questions To Get To Know Yourself Better
Do you know yourself?
That may seem like a silly question. How could we not know ourselves?
I can almost guarantee these 30 questions to get to know yourself better are going to challenge you. They are going to leave you stumped. They may even bring about some feelings that you did not know you had.
We are all guilty of just going through the motions of life sometimes. And I don’t even think we realize we are doing it. Not until we force ourselves to stop.
Grab yourself a pen and paper. I really want you to write down the answers to these questions. Think of this as you are going on a date with yourself. And the conversation on this date is going to get deep.
The deeper the better.
It is so crucial to take the time to learn about ourselves. And then take what we have learned and make some positive changes in our lives.

When it comes to these questions, there are no right or wrong answers. Write down the first thing that comes to your mind.
