Know Your Why

Posted · Add Comment

Do you know what you want?  Getting clear on the results you want to produce in your life is an important first step to making it happen.

Once you know what you desire, then you must know your “why” (Your BIG W). Why do you want this?  Why are you taking the action needed achieve this?

It sounds so obvious, but not knowing your “Big W” is the reason we start something and don’t follow through.  We forget why we wanted it in the first place, life gets complicated and we retreat to our comfort zone.

Your Big W gives you a sense of purpose that drives you when obstacles appear.  It gives you the emotional reasons why you are ready to do whatever it takes.

For example,  “I want to make more money” is fine, but it’s much more powerful to say, “I want to make more money so I can give my family a wonderful life, live in my dream house, have the freedom to get anything I want, feel secure and make a difference by helping abused children.

When you really feel WHY you want something, you will manifest the intensity and excitement that will give you the fuel and momentum to create it.

Questions to ask yourself:

1.  What do I want?

2.  Why do I want this?

3.  When I have this, what will it give me?

4.  How will I feel when I achieve this?

We are emotional creatures.  When you tie an emotion or feeling to a goal, it has more power behind it.  When you feel passionate about something, you will climb mountains to get it.

Your Big W is the reason you are on your journey.  Passion is the fire that lights your way.
