Know Thyself: How Would You Answer These 6 “If” Questions

1. If you had a chance to paint a mural in a busy subway station where most people rush by on their way or staring at their phones, yet every now and again, it would catch someone’s eye and make them think, question, believe, smile, cry, feel – what would you paint on that mural?

2. If you were going to give a large audience one piece of advice that the hard lessons of hindsight has taught you, what would it be?

3. If you saw someone crying to themselves in a park, would you walk past them, or would you try to find some way to comfort them?

4. If a homeless man on the street smiled at you, would you return the smile or would you quickly look away?

5. If you had 5 million dollars and you had to donate half of it, list every cause, project, person you’d help. How many bullet points are on that list, and what are you doing today to get started on helping even without that money?

6. If rejection and failure didn’t exist as a fear in your mind, what big experiences/projects/endeavors/adventures/risks would you flip a coin on doing with your life?

About Lauren Rains

Hi my name is Lauren Rains. I write about the human experience. Through thick and thin, I’m dedicated to growth, adventure, integrity, and love. The Mad To Live is based on my pursuits, experiments, research, and lessons of challenge and triumph in all areas of life, including being entrepreneur, a writer, a philosopher, a traveler, a teacher, a student, a creative, a friend, a daughter, a sister, a significant other, a stranger and the list goes on. At the end of the day, I believe human beings are here for two reasons: 1.) to love one another with total acceptance, and 2.) to see what we’re made of as we create the possibilities for an abundant life for ourselves and for others. No more bullshit, let's just enjoy our lives.

Share with me what you're getting into that matters to you. It could be stepping into entrepreneurial pursuits, embarking on a journey of the self, making a crazy life change, or even if you're totally stuck. I want to connect with, support, collaborate with, and learn from as many people as possible through this blog (that means you!)
