Finding Our “Why”
We all have things we’ve got to get done. Some of them are work related, some of them are chores around the house, and some have to do with the people we care about. As long as we’re having fun and are enjoying what we’re doing, motivation isn’t an issue. But when it is something we don’t really want to do, it gets a bit trickier. Then we have to motivate ourselves to get off the couch and get to work. And that internal motivation isn’t always easy.
Today I want to share a little strategy with you that will make it easy to get and stay motivated. The key is to find your “why”. The why is simply the reason why something needs to get done and how it benefits you in the end.
Your reason for doing something – your “why” – can be something big or small. For example, your motivation for taking out the trash can be as simple as wanting a clean, good-smelling kitchen.

Look, you have two choices here. You can continue to play around, living day by day, doing what you’ve always done up to this point. Or you can take a chance, dig deep and figure out what you’re really meant to be doing.
When you stop and take the time to figure out what your purpose is, and then built your life around it, something amazing happens. Instead of feeling like you are wasting your life, you realize that what you’re doing matters. You are making a difference and you have a positive influence on the people around you.
Here is an important thing to remember. It’s not about the money you make, the house you buy, or the car you drive. Those things are nice, but they don’t make you happy. Continue reading
