Thought provoking questions can make you realize what you’re missing out on in life, what you are grateful for or what things are still left undone.
I always ask myself stimulating questions from time to time to make sure I’m on the right track and staying true to myself and the people around me.
Are you still being honest with yourself? Are you sure you know where you stand?
Let’s take a look at some guitar-player-life-examining questions to trigger your thought process.
Print the questions and write down your answers in a notebook. Are you content or are you going to make a change?
