Curiosity is a Secret Language

Do you remember what it's like to be a kid? We followed our curiosity every chance we got - heck, that's what being a kid was all about.


We grew up.

Don't get me wrong, being an adult has its perks (being a parent, getting married, driving, pizza for breakfast anyone?) but, we tend to lose our curiosity as we age.

Stop what you're doing right now.

Sit quietly; look and listen.

If you pay attention, you'll eventually hear a little voice saying something like "I wonder what would happen if....."

THAT'S IT - your curiosity!

Life is meant to live, and live well. If we're going to do that we need to enjoy what we're doing; that's where curiosity comes in.

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing.

~ Albert Einstein

Curiosity is our guide to happiness.

Humans were given this strong desire to learn about things for a reason; it ensures we keep exploring, learning and expanding our horizons.

Get curious!

Explore what you're curious about and let your curiosity guide you to change your life and the lives of others. That's what it's all about.

Curiosity guides you into new realms. You learn new things, and your understanding of life itself expands and changes for the better.

Curiosity leads to knowledge.

Curiosity makes learning fun.

Curiosity is the secret language of successful people.

It can be argued (and I LOVE to argue!) that every new invention comes about as a result of curiosity. This is good news because it means you can reinvent yourself using your curiosity!

Life doesn't get dull, or boring; people get dull or boring. They forget how to be curious about life. They think they've:

  • Been there, done that
  • Seen it all
  • Got the t-shirt to prove it

But they HAVEN'T! It's impossible. There is not enough time in one person's lifetime to explore all there is to explore.

If you have always wanted to do something - DO IT!

Nobody is stopping you!

Two years ago if you had told me I was going to be a social media marketing strategist for small business owners, I would have said to you that you're crazy!

Three months ago if you had told me I was going to be on the road to becoming an ICF-certified coach, I would have replied the same way.

These things are coming to fruition because I followed my curiosity and got lit up inside and you can too - it's miraculous!

Within a few months, my practice will be able to offer social media marketing education, and business growth strategies through a holistic whole-person coaching approach, which will result in meaningful transformations for my clients.
