I recently had the opportunity to participate in a program called Honeymoon Israel, a 10-day program for newlyweds of interfaith marriages. The experience taught me how to self-reflect, and what I discovered about myself, my relationships and the applicable lessons for my business was -- much like being an entrepreneur -- incredible, challenging, exciting, exhausting, fulfilling and confusing. From my eye-opening experience in Israel, here are three questions I uncovered that can help you unplug from your work and gain a new perspective on your business challenges.

1. "What are you doing here, and why do you care?"

Why does your business exist, and why would people care? There must be a purpose that is about more than just making money. You might not have the answers right now, but you still need to be considering them. Ask yourself, "What in my life is important to me, and how do I live my life accordingly?"

Once you define this for yourself, you can apply it to your business and share it with everyone who interacts with it, including your employees, investors and clients. This will inspire those around you to engage with the purpose and help you make your long term company vision into a reality.

2. "Who are you?"

Identity was a big theme of this trip. Do you identify as a parent, a child, an entrepreneur, an American, something else or some combination? The goal of our trip was not to convince anyone to identify themselves a certain way -- that's the personal decision of each individual.

The goal of the program, rather, was to ensure we knew there is a community that loves us. How can you create a similar sense of community in your business and, furthermore, make it clear to your employees and clients that your community loves them? Defining your priorities in your personal life will make your purpose clearer. And, if you define your priorities in your business, your focus will be on its results.

In Israel, for example, religion and culture can be unifying as well as polarizing, but it doesn't have to be problematic. My business partner and I come from different ethnic and religious backgrounds, but our collective vision and values have always been in alignment, which has contributed to the long-term success of our company.

Conflict arises when vision and values diverge -- if differences are not discussed and respected in business, it could lead to lawsuits. Define who you are as an individual, and define your company brand. Then, be sure to share that with your stakeholders just as you did your mission and vision to ensure there is clarity and alignment.

3. "How can you 'repair the world'?"

Tikkun Olam is a Jewish concept I learned on my trip that means, "Repair the world." It's defined by acts of kindness done to perfect or repair the world. The phrase is often used when discussing issues of social policy, insuring a safeguard to those who may be at a disadvantage.

I was inspired and motivated by the fact that this belief matches so closely with my own company purpose, which is to "move the world." The idea is to eliminate baseless hate and improve the human condition. Therefore, do not measure the success of your business based on how much money it can generate, but rather the positive impact that it can make on your community, and ultimately the world.

Define the positive impact your business makes and share those examples so they are lived on a daily basis. This will create loyalty, unity and longevity for your organization. As entrepreneurs, it's easy to get consumed with the daily grind that you forget to step back and think about the big picture and how you and your organization fits into this dynamic, ever-evolving world. We rarely take a moment to reflect.

This trip taught me that the human capacity is limitless, and if we continue to ask ourselves and our organizations the above questions and strive to make a positive impact, we will live a much more fulfilled and impactful life as business owners and individuals overall.
