At a recent mentoring course in London, the organiser posed the question as to why we do what we do. I followed by group discussions and activities.
The question momentarily stopped me in my tracks as I racked my brains to find the answer, which for some came rather quickly, but it took me a while to figure out my why.
So now I challenge you with the same question, what is your why. Some of you may know already for others you may not have considered this simple but incredibly profound and thought-provoking question.
The following week I went on a mini crusade and asked a handful of my endearing clients if they knew theirs why.
Why do you go into work if you don’t enjoy your role, why are we in relationships that don’t serve us, why don’t we stop smoking, lose weight or strive for a better quality of life if what we currently do does not satisfy us?
Successful people succeed because they are clear on their why. Whether you’re an entrepreneur, a professional actor or someone who is committed to achieving your goals, make sure you’re clear on your why.
An understanding of your why will help you keep your eye on the prize even when you feel like giving in, and it will unleash a determination to step up.
I believe that everyone has a why, although they may not be aware of what it is. We all know what it is that we do; some of us know how we do it, but even fewer take the time to think about why we do what we do.
People who have clarity on their why are likely never to give up and have succeeded.
The why is our contribution to influence and support others? It should inspire us. In short, you could say that our why is your purpose (now that’s another conversation).
It provides a clear answer to our questions, “Why do I get out of bed every morning?” “Why does my business exist and thrive?” and “Why should that matter to anyone else?” Having people believe in your why will forge great friendships, seek your help, and come to your aid should the need ever require.
If you don’t unsure why you do what you do, you must first get clarity on your own why but how does one do that?
Think about what it is you want to contribute to the world. Once you’ve understood your contribution, you have to work out what you want the result of your contribution to be.
