Don’t you want sometimes to feel amazed by the world around you? Would like to go on smalll adventures every day? Simple curiosity is the answer, that child-like fascination for anything in front of your eyes. It’s surprisingly simple if you just give yourself permission of not knowing anything:
- Be fascinated with our world, fascination leads to curiosity
- Why we don’t stay curios? Because we are told we must know
- Be Clueless. Do not investigate, ask questions and listen for the answers
- It’s an adventure, we are permitted to say stupid and new stuff
- Curiosity has no assumptions, it’s an open and free space
- It’s not working hard at all
- Be unattached to my your own curiosity, you don’t have to be clever
- Curiosity is born in innocence
- Curiosity is best when triggered by an simple intention or a high purpose
I use child-like curiosity in my coaching as a technique to approach your life and challenges with a sense of wonder, openness. It can be used in a variety of ways:
Exploring new possibilities: Child-like curiosity can help clients explore new possibilities and consider different ways of approaching a problem or situation. By asking open-ended questions and approaching the situation with a sense of wonder, you may be able to see things from a fresh perspective and come up with new ideas.
Fostering a sense of playfulness to approach your life and challenges with a sense of playfulness and joy. This can make the process of personal growth and self-discovery far more enjoyable.
Cultivating a growth mindset to develop a growth mindset, where they are open to learning and willing to take risks. By approaching challenges with a sense of curiosity and wonder, you will be more likely to embrace new experiences and opportunities for growth.
Overcoming fear and self-doubt: Child-like curiosity can also help clients overcome fear and self-doubt. By approaching their lives with a sense of wonder and openness, clients may be less likely to be held back by negative self-talk or limiting beliefs.
A simple exercise is to pick a random object and list a 100 question about it. My water bottle on the table is ready for me right now to try this out: What’s made of? Where was made? What’s unique about the design….
