How to Find Your ‘Why’

One of the common reasons our lives get so complex and crazy is because there’s a big gap between the life we dream of living, and the one we’re actually living. Get clear on what you want from life (your ‘Why’), and work toward it.  Anything that’s not on your path can be eliminated or reduced because it’s not important.

It might seem easy to know what overarching changes you want to make in your life: you want to be less stressed, you want to be healthier. But taking the steps to get there can be a lot more challenging.

Without a solid “Why”, you can find yourself feeling unmotivated to change.

Your Why is your source of intrinsic motivation. If you know your Why, you can drum up that little bit of courage and motivation that you need to get started. From there, it’s momentum, not motivation. Your Why is a list of reasons that resonate with you as to why you’re doing something.

So let me ask you;

“What is Your Why?”

This is a legitimate question to ask yourself, and in the video below, I will provide you with a step-by-step guide on how to find your “why” in life. I hope that these tips can guide you towards clarifying your purpose, and by doing so – benefit your life.

A quick way of getting to the root of your desire to change is to go through the 5 Why’s:

I want to exercise every day. – Why?

Because I want to get fitter. – Why?

So I can have more energy. – Why?

So I can do more things that make me happy. – Why?

So I can feel good about myself. – Why?

To have a more positive mindset and change my day today.

And that is your Why. Keep it in mind, write it down, and put it somewhere where you’ll see it every day to keep yourself motivated.

Once you have your Why, go through the prompts below:

  • What would happen if you make the change?
  • What would happen if you don’t?

“Nothing gives a person inner wholeness and peace like a distinct understanding of where they are going.”

~ Thomas Oppong

Visualise the life you want to lead and work on making it a reality, one day at a time. You don’t have to work toward achieving everything that you want at once; just establish what your key goal is today, and work on that.  Once you’ve got that one under control, start working on the next one. As you achieve your small goals, you’ll gain a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction.  Life will become more joyful and easier to deal with, day in and day out.
