Ultimate Community Service is the Global Impact of Asking a Question

When you ask a question in a public forum, it touches the lives of many people.  It has an exponential double impact.  There's a really good 100% chance at least 1 person in the audience has the same question, which you have the courage to ask. Now you're a champion for that person.

When the answer is delivered, that single person is now in a knowledgeable position to guide others who may ask a similar question in the future. So a question can make you a community catalyst to potentially start a chain reaction globally. You probably will never meet the people helped by that anonymous person you helped, because of your question.  So what. This is what being a selfless community activist is about.

Let's review the powerful benefits of asking a question . . . 
  • It enhances personal development to overcome shyness
