This week I started reading the book, ?Starts with Why? by Simon Senek. A great book to help you figure out why you do the things you do. Do you just go through life and wait for things to happen to you? Do you fall in the routine of life, to the point you?re on autopilot and don?t even need to think about your actions?
If you said yes to those questions, you?re most likely not really that happy with your life. Are you really living the life of your dreams?
I was at a Business Networking meeting this past week, and everyone stood up and gave the ?why? they are in business and what they are passionate about. It got me thinking, do I wake up every morning and have a purpose to my day? Does every action I take start with why?
Deep thoughts for a Friday morning
Many of you go to the gym because you know you need to for your health and fitness, others go to look good, others go to stay fit, others just go.
What is your why for exercising? Once you figure out what your ?why? is, you will be more comitted to sticking with it.
This leads to the infamous New Years Resolutions. Every January millions of us jump on the health and fitness bandwagon. 80% of those, don?t even make it till the end of January. All of a sudden Super Bowl gets in the way and then its Valentines, and on and on come the excuses.
Before January comes, I want you to write down your Why for your New Years Resolutions, whatever they may be. Do you want to lose 50, 20 or 10 pounds? Write down why. Is it because you want to look a certain way? Is it for health reasons? Is it that you want to live till you see your great grandkids, or is it to reduce stress and to make you happy.
Knowing your Why will help you propel forward when life gets in the way. Knowing your why helps bring the people into your life that will help and support you. Knowing your why will give you purpose to your life.
Life is too short to just go through the motions. Life your best life. Is your life you?re living today, what you dreamed up when you were a kid. If not, change it.
