The Life-Changing Habit of
Asking Better Questions
@habitsguy
“Thinking is just the process
of asking and answering
questions.”
- Tony Robbins
This message encapsulates a good
deal of the value in asking
questions.
But we pay very
little attention
to questions
specifically
designed to
help someone
understand
their internal
landscape.
Learn more about yourself and
others by asking better questions.
1 Judgmental
Questions
The purpose

These are
asked with no
agenda but
with love.
These are rare
because they are
non-directive and
accepting.
Loving questions provide the person
being asked the opportunity to

substantial difference in another
person’s life.
