100 Questions to Ask Yourself When You are Recovering from Cancer

100 questions to ask yourself if you are recovering from cancer.  Cancer can be a life altering illness, and changes your perception on life.  Furthermore, this perception shift leads to a series of self discovery questions to ask yourself.

These 100 questions to ask yourself are for individuals who are reevaluating their life and purpose.  Therefore, you will find that these questions are all reflective.  By reflecting on the past and future, you will determine your calling.

Self discovery questions to ask yourself have been helpful in my personal experience.  Through my cancer journey, I was down and out.  Due to treatments, my white blood cell count had gotten so bad that I could not leave the house.  Because I was aware of my limitations, I was fearful of getting sicker due to chemotherapy medications.

As a result, after spending many hours on the bed, I contemplated my current life trajectory.  This reflection time, allowed me to consider my future.  Thus I decided, my life climbing the ladder as retail manager had little to be desired.

I repeatedly asked three questions. First, what was my current legacy?  Two, how did I want my legacy to appear over time?  Three, what actions would I start taking upon recovery to change my legacy.

For this reason, I developed this list of 100 questions to ask yourself.  As you read these questions it may seem like these questions are geared toward entrepreneurship and starting your own business.  I like to think of these questions as a manner to find your calling.  On the other hand, you may discover that your current path is the most desirable.

In the end, I would make the claim that these self discovery questions to ask yourself are for problem-solving.  Because these questions are probing problem solving questions, my attitude is that these questions will help you identify problems in life.  To solve these problems, it will be necessary to commit to addressing this concern over time.  Unfortunately, the problem you identify will not be one you fix overnight and is ongoing journey.  Once you provide a solution, your next job will be to tell everyone how it can help them.
