What is a WHY? it is the inner yearning in your soul that keeps you going. it is what helps you navigate the next three steps even when you can’t see what they are. it makes you smile and at its very essence, it is hope. it is a knowing of your purpose and more importantly being able to live it each day in some little or big way.
As you might have guessed, WHYs are never about just you and they always affect others. That’s what makes a WHY so important. if you have a WHY, you can create more positive change in the world.
In my work with women entrepreneurs, I’ve learned that the best way to help them along their entrepreneurial journeys to financial independence is to encourage them to seek, discover, and live their WHYs. I’ve taught classes on it, written books on it, and talk about it in most of my consulting sessions. it is that important.
A Few questions to help You along your WHY Journey
What is the reason I want to be financially independent?
If you never had to work for money again, what would you do each day for the rest of your life?
What truly drives me and excites me?
What activities make time disappear when I am doing them?
Spending time to really answer these questions deeply and explore where you are at right now and where your heart is telling you to go right now is how you move forward on the journey. This same process helps you not only get started on the journey, but these are the same questions you should revisit along the journey as you change. The answers to the questions will change as you grow into a New Way of being. and you must put pen to paper to answer these questions. The physical process of pulling the answers out of your head into the physical realm anchors them and makes the journey real.
One thing that excites me about the journey is the fact that I get to change and innovate all the time and that I get to keep discovering my next WHY. your reason WHY will evolve as you evolve. When you achieve your reason why, be in the moment of it and it enjoy it completely. even celebrate it with others often. Then, move on to your next WHY.
