If you had a good childhood, you might often find yourself wishing to return to that simpler time. As happy as you may now, you can’t help but miss the days when the world seemed nicer, and your life was much less complex.

While we can’t go back in time, we can make an effort to recapture parts of the mindset you had a younger age. This starts by regaining your childlike curiosity. Specifically, these three childlike thoughts and actions.

  1. Question The Obvious: When we were younger, we questioned why the sky was blue, and the earth was round. As adults, we seem just to accept things as they are. By questioning the obvious, we are unlocking new ideas and potential opportunities for growth and discovery.
  2. Learn More About What You Don’t Know: As a child, we were always asking questions to learn as much as we can. Adults tend to pretend they know everything to avoid being embarrassed and looking foolish. If you make it a point to learn more about the things you don’t know, you always have the edge over those who never bothered to ask in the first place.
  3. Always Be Looking and Moving Forward: In our younger years, we were always on the move. Looking forward to the next adventure filled with wonderment and curiosity. In our older years, we often find ourselves looking back and letting our past prevent us from moving forward. Summon your courage from the younger version of yourself and move forward into your future.
