Something I have been thinking about and dwelling on recently is “What’s your WHY?” It is something I have had to come to grips with a number of times in my life. Most times my “WHY” just jumps out at me. I have an AHA moment that changes my life. Other times, I have to think about it, pray about it, and have it come to me.
Why change my life? Why quit drinking? Why quit smoking? Why change careers when I am at the peak of one? Why lose weight after being overweight all my life? All of these are actual “Why’s” in my lifetime. As I look back I know I have been driven by my “Why’s”.
My “Why” may have been a little different in each situation, but they all came back to ‘me becoming a better me to best help and serve my family, friends and community. I have always enjoyed helping others in my life and have learned the hard lesson that I needed to help me, so I could be the best me to help others.
Do you know your “WHY”? If you want to make any substantial change in your life, know your “Why”, embrace your “Why”, and own your “Why”. Some things to do, some questions to ask to find your why:
- Write it down
- What are the first thoughts that come to mind?
- How do you want to make a difference?
- What are you passionate about?
- What makes you feel alive?
Find your “Why” and YOU CAN DO ANYTHING!
Note to ME and YOU: Embrace your “WHY” and change your life, change the world!
