We only learn new information by asking questions.

BUT nobody likes an inquisitve person

Think of all of the great thinkers, visionaries, leaders, movers, innovators, and builders of our time. Where would humanity be today if they had not asked themselves questions?

Think of social media and sites like Formspring. Why are they so popular?

Childhood dreams

When you were a child:

Did you have a secret hiding place?
Did you use to dream a lot about the future?
Did you have a special place you shared with your brothers and sisters?

Give an example of
# a childhood dream.
# a person or place that is your pride and joy.
# a great escape.
# a secret hiding place.

1. Don't look . . . .
2. Keep your . . . . held high
3. Live and . . . .
4. Don't hold . . . . to the past
