Fostering and maintaining our curiosity is important.
Children are naturals when it comes to being curious. Of course…they are new, the world is new, they have so much to learn.
But, when is it – at what age – do we stop being curious and start to think we know the world.
Everything is constantly changing…ourselves, other people, the Earth, the Universe. Nothing stays the same and yet, as adults, so many of us choose to believe we know the way it is.
When was the last time you asked yourself why you do something you do?
When was the last time you looked at something you don’t like and instead of judging it, asked, I wonder why that is?
Instead of reacting in anger when you are upset with someone, stop. Ask I wonder why they would choose that?
Being curious helps us evolve and grow. Being curious helps us see all perspectives (not just the ones we like). Being curious helps us become mini-scientists. Being curious allows us to see solutions we wouldn’t see if we continue to think we know.
Foster your curious nature. Learn something new. Approach a familiar situation in a new way. Choose a different path. Listen to someone with a different point of view. Look at the world in a curious way. You might be surprised by what you find.
