I was watching an episode of Gary Vee yesterday and he featured Simon Sinek. Simon has a famous Ted Talk that exploded back in 2010. He focuses on your “why” both in life and at work.
Many of us know what we do for a living. We may even know how we do it. But very few of us have our own personal vision of WHY we do what we do. This is they key we need to go to work energized and come home fulfilled.
Simon has a great program called, “Find Your Why.”
But you don’t really need a program to find it. Think about the following questions:
- What gets you fired up and excited?
- What things do you love to do?
- What things do you hate to do?
- If you could do anything in the world, no restrictions, what would it be?
- What is the best vision of your future for yourself?
These types of questions will bring your closer to your why. So, in order to discover yours I recommend buying a notebook or a journal and start writing about your hopes and dreams. Your passions. Ask friends what they think about you and what are your best and worst qualities (and refrain from getting offended. Remember, this is all helpful self-realization information).
Start focusing inward and see if you can find your “why.”
That’s all folks. Comment below and tell me what is your why.
