16 Scary Questions to Ask if You are Serious about Creating an Awesome Life

I want to wake up every morning with a smile on my face, jumping out of bed excited to go to work. I want to be thankful to be alive, thankful to be breathing, thankful that I get to do what I love. I want to feel alive.

I imagine a world where every single person was doing what they were born to do. Doing what makes them come alive. Living their dreams. Making a difference. Having ridiculous amounts of fun while doing it.

I want to inspire, to encourage, and to empower my generation to realize their dreams and to do what they were born to do. That's the kind of impact I want to create with my life. What about you?

What do you want to be known for? What do you want your legacy to be? How can you make a difference in the lives of those near and far? No matter how young or old, it's always the right time to ask those questions.

Below are 16 scary questions worth asking if you are serious about creating an awesome life
