9921E3B5-1C69-4554-8493-A9F5CAAB5C7FI believe Question like, “Are you going to set aside time for serving Jesus Christ?”
From researches that I have done and experiences I have had in life,I have discovered that certain questions when ask in a particular way, it makes people  to rethink things and sometimes critically look at themselves.There is something very sticky about direct questions that went ask it earnestly  influenced people to stop themselves. I mean literally,stop!

I have always considered myself to be very motivated and a pretty steady type of person.Not only am I good at doing that, I was born like that if that makes sense.well,I didn’t think that someone would ask me a question that will hunt me a long time in my life.It was the way it was asked that hits me so hard.It was said very direct and fearless but also with realness.To be earnest,I have heard it repeated many times to others, but it didn’t recurred to me how powerful of a question it was.When it was said to me,I guess it was the best way to motivate someone like me to  e empower to change my daily life.I believe Question like, “Are you going to set aside time for serving Jesus Christ?”

Imagine the impact this question will have psychologically  and physiology.You know what? I take that back,ok,let’s ignore these big medical terms and let use the layman’s term.Just imagine the impact it has on a person mentally and physically. A Question like this, create discomforts and we know discomfort motivates people to change. I know it for a fact.I know someone who refuses to make any health changes until they realized that a life threatening growth began to develop and affect their breathing that they started to take their health into account.

“There have been countless studies that have shown, and one study concluded that, questioning effectively produces consistent and significant change across a wide variety of behaviors. Direct questions influenced people to cheat less and exercise, volunteer, and recycle more.

The key is to ask a question that forces individuals to choose a definitive yes or no answer (as opposed to an open-ended question).”

 

“So, when someone asks if you are going to exercise your right to think about this question., “Are you going to set aside time for serving Jesus Christ?

To ease your discomfort before you  within the moment, you’re likely to answer a question in a way that affirms your ideal self. Acknowledging your intention increases the likelihood that you’ll change your behavior.”
