Ask Questions

"Your questions won't be answered if you don't ask them."
~John M. Roberts~

If you are in a meeting, a classroom, lecture hall, at a seminar, news conference, or any setting that features a speaker, teacher, political candidate, or person of interest, at some point someone is going to ask if there are any questions.

You may not think it at the time but your questions are important and relevant. Everyone has a question that they are dying to ask but many people simply sit back and keep their thoughts to themselves.

Questions are an important part of learning. Everyone has a need to know something. Nobody knows everything and no matter who you are, where you are from, who you know or don't know, how old you are, or what you think of yourself, if you want to know something, ask the question.

You may think that your question may sound silly but if you are in a room full of people, most of the people there probably want to know what you want to know. You may think that it's a silly question but it may produce the response that everyone is wanting to hear. In other words, your silly question may be the the smart question to ask so by all means, ask your question.

Some people seem to know the right questions to ask and they have a knack for making their questions sound smart and on the point. The difference between them and you is that they don't care how their question sounds, they just want an answer. And they don't worry about how others think they sound. They just ask their question and wait for an answer. The point is that if everybody worried about how their questions sound, no one would every get any answers.

There are other reasons why some people don't ask questions. It's not that they feel their questions are stupid, they are just to bashful to ask them. Some people have a real fear of crowds. They keep a low profile and don't want to be seen or heard.

Have you ever been in a situation where only a few people are ever called on to ask questions. Some speakers feel that they should only acknowledge certain people, those who sound smart or have the easy to answer questions.

And there are others who feel that if you don't have the courage to ask questions or to participate in the discussion, your concerns have no validity. In other words, they feel that if you don't ask questions, you must know everything.

You should always ask questions if you are not sure about something. Your questions won't be answered if you don't ask them.
