When it comes to fortune telling, most people like to ask, "How many years will I live?" This may look a good question to ask, because without life, nothing else matters. However, if I tell you that you can live up to a hundred years old, but from tomorrow onwards for some reason you will spend the rest of your life in prison (note 1), do you like it?
The second question most people like to ask, is whether they will become rich. For some people, in order to get rich, they work so long hours that before their wealth is secured they get poor health for sure. For some others, making a fortune for themselves may mean costing a fortune for the people nearby, or even becoming unfortunate (note 2). So, if getting rich is your goal, ask yourself the following questions, "Will I be able to enjoy the fortune once I get it? Also, can I live up to my conscience that I can happily enjoy the fortune?
Therefore, next time when you go to a fortune teller, the key questions to ask may be:
1. Will I have a meaningful life?
2. Will I be healthy and happy?
Or, better still, ask yourself, because you know the answers better!
