    002 – What Having A Why Will Do For You

    The desire to be a part of something bigger than ourselves has existed hand in hand with humanity from the beginning of time. The fulfillment that ties together with living for more than yourself is unfathomable. Theoretically, that sounds wonderful but what is purpose really? What does having a why do for you today, in the real world? There are some very specific things purpose is. Maybe more importantly, what it is not. How you will know if you have found it and what having a why will do for you.

    001 – Power Of Having A Why

    001 – Power Of Having A Why

    The search for why has brought a new light into my world that has spread into every area of darkness in my life. What used to be shallow relationships are digging into deeper more meaningful ones. My emotions, mental state, and physical wellbeing are much more solid. My finances are no longer dictating my life and are simply helping me towards what really matters. The influence I am able to have now in the world around me is much greater than ever before. That does not mean I have all the answers because I do not, or that I have everything I ever want, or that life is perfect because that just is simply not the case. That is the beauty of it though. Even in the midst of struggles I am more fulfilled and at peace than ever before. What has changed?

    Have you ever felt like there is something more?

    Why am I here?

    What can I do?

    What is my why?

    Do I make a difference?

    Do I really matter?

    What is the point?

    [1:50]

    Stephen R. Covey was one of the people whose life work changed the trajectory of the world. His book “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People” is arguably the most renowned self-help book of all time. He lays out 7 habits that to this day are among the most impactful to high effectiveness, as the title suggests. Personally, I make a point to go through this book once a year because of the value which is stuffed between the covers and the constant re-centering I need. The 2nd habit is to “begin with the end in mind.” So that is what we are going to do here.

The authors Why?

What is YOUR why? How will you accomplish the success of your why? This might help listeners connect and gain clarity on their why. Something I struggle with is, I have a purpose, a purpose that will make it in history books. It’s like a root system for a tree, one vine turns into a twig, then a branch then into the trunk. There’s many “vines” that need to be addressed to reach the trunk at relatively the same time and I’m having a hard time knowing what to address first, or what can be addressed first due to my line of work. With time, focus, and an extreme level of discomfort I’m confident I’ll achieve success.
