Out of every 10 people I meet, at least 2 ask me about my age
Psychologically, asking someone about their age is one of the rudest questions that you can ever ask anyone. It implicates a demeanor of judging others. Asking others for their age especially when you can’t explain why you wonna know simply illustrates a judgmental or stereotyping attitude. Most people ask for age to compare with what they already know about an age group. This limits one from capturing the moment, and embracing another just as they are. Trust me; you don’t need to know someone’s age to love them, relate to them, or understand them. All you need is an open mind.
A few suggestions of better questions one can ask are as follows:
- What do you do for fun?
- What makes your day a good one?
- Do like outdoors?
- Do you enjoy comedy?
These are but some of the decent questions that you ask another to know more about them.
In my book Do Not Force It, Tap The Good, I explain in detail how one can positively influence others; how to connect to like-minded friends, and most importantly, how to consistently open one’s mind in order to embrace life as it reveals itself.
In my core Life Coaching Program – Tapping into your Infinite Good, I employ the magical tools of EFT, NLP, Ho’oponopono and the Life Leadership Paragon founded by Dr. Doug Kelley, to transform lives by helping people get their power back, changing their self-limiting beliefs, and tapping into the abundant resources available in their minds.
Love and light
