What About Your Why?

As you realize that you have to make some changes in your life in order for things to change, answering these simple questions may help you get that change not only started. The answers may also provide you with the necessary motivation to persevere and get to the other side of change.  

WHY AM I DOING THIS?

Jot down answers to that question in these areas: SPIRITUAL, PRACTICAL, INTELLECTUAL, FINANCIAL, EMOTIONAL.

Read your answers on a daily basis.

That’s it.

When it is tough to take the action you know you need to take, verbalizing your why reminds you of the urgency of accomplishing your goal.

When you are experiencing opposition to your goal, verbalizing your why reminds you of what you will gain on the other side of your challenge.

When you feel discouraged about your progress and hopeless that you will ever be able to accomplish what you set out to do, verbalizing your why reminds you of what got you started in the first place and why it is so important to keep going.

When you feel overwhelmed with the daily distractions of life, verbalizing your why helps you focus and concentrate and re-start.

Two additional questions to consider:

WHAT ARE THE REWARDS IF I DO…

WHAT WILL IT COST ME IF I DON’T …

After you get your ‘why’ written down, then focus on Yoda’s now famous words:

Do or Do not. There is no try!

One last thought: The day you take complete responsibility for yourself, the day you stop making any excuses, 
that’s the day you start moving down the road to success.

No one else can do it for you.
 Only you can make it happen.
 You’re the only one that has to live your life.

 Success on any major scale requires you to accept responsibility.
 It’s up to you to choose the thoughts, attitudes and actions that will lead you to success.
