The rare question, in a world filled with answers

Everyone around us is trying to help us by giving us all the answers we need. But sometimes, what we need are not those answers, all we need is to be asked the right questions that will set us back on track. Well, for starters, that's precisely what this article has: Questions that'll boggle your mind, will surprise you, that will re-energize you better than the green tea that you drink every day or the power yoga that you do to keep yourself in the best shape possible!

When you're done answering the questions below, well, I don't want to tell you how you will feel just yet! Who explains how you will feel when you take a dive? That's for you to find out!!

(Hint: It will thrill you, take you down your memory lane, remind you of your best self, show you that secret of yours that kept making you achieve more, and more! *wink* )
