Whether you’re actively taking steps to achieve a goal, or even in the beginning stages where you’re visualizing the results you want, it’s crucial that you ask yourself one thing — WHY?
Why do you want it? Knowing the “why” behind it all can help you uncover massive motivation and drive. And it’s a GREAT way to find out what you can use to keep you going when every other part of you is screaming to throw in the towel.
On a recent dog walk, Tristan and Sabrina started to really examine the power of “Why?” and how it can keep you more consistent:
So it seems that, just as important as identifying WHAT we want… we need to identify WHY we want it!
Here’s how it goes. Pretend you’re interviewing yourself and ask:
- “What do you want?“
- “Why do you want it?“
- Then, whatever the answer, follow up with, “Why do you want THAT?“
- Then repeat step 3, a few more times until you really get down to your root WHY!
Because in reality, once we get down to our root WHY… there’s usually a lot of emotion behind it. And when THAT’s the case…Expect miracles. That emotional connection is the key to the most powerful Attracting Force we can tap into.
Once we really understand WHY we want something, we also get a deep insight into what strongly motivates us.
Take a moment and really think about what motivates you. Now, how does what you are SAYING you want to achieve fit into that why?
Often, it’s even something because we’ve been taught that we SHOULD want it. Or taught that we’ll be happy if we have. But it doesn’t actually tap into our WHY, our personal reasons for doing anything. So it makes it hard to get excited about. And hard to stay committed to. Just one more thing that we’re “supposed to do.”
But by digging a little deeper, we can get flashes of perfect clarity where the root of our WHY becomes obvious. Sometimes it comes quickly and easily, and sometimes it requires a little more digging.
But no matter the cost, it’s worth it! It gives you the reason for doing anything.
So, c’mon… let’s hear it…
What gets you out of bed in the morning?
