My good peeps. I hope this email finds you prepared to learn, have fun, and take over the world. Today we continue to talk about how our “Why” helps us to find our way.
1. Knowing your “Why” allows you to focus more on others and less on yourself — “Purpose comes from within. It works from the inside out.” So what usually happens when you don’t know your why? You have to spend a lot of time looking on the inside, and focusing on yourself to find it. To be honest, there is nothing wrong with that at all. In fact, it is vital to the success and well-being of your life to figure out what your purpose is. But it takes time, and it requires effort. It is a process of asking yourself a lot of questions and focusing on yourself. The sooner you know your why, the faster you are able to shift the focus from you to others. We all have to find ourselves before we can lose ourselves in other people. And as we have talked about a million times,
“significance lives and thrives in taking care of others.”
2. Living out your “Why” gives you a confidence that is attractive to others — “Knowing my why gives me great security and comfort in every thing I attempt and do.” Have you ever noticed a person that walked into the room or knocked on your door and you can feel their presence? They seem to know exactly what they are doing and where they are going? You find yourself latching onto every one of their words because of how strong their confidence is. “That is no arrogance. It’s purpose.” Purpose gives us direction in life. Especially when the wind is blowing and the waves our crashing in.
3. The more you live your “Why” the more you layer it — “People’s strengths and individual purposes are always connected.” Your “why” is fuel for your strengths. And your strengths are a way for you to fulfill your why. “Every time you use your strengths to live our your why, you build on your strength and increase your why.” What this way of living does is add layers of ability, purpose, credibility and significance to your life. The more you do, the more you learn. The more you learn, the more you can become.
As I have said so so many times before, the faster you learn your purpose, the better life becomes. When you have a reason to get up early in the morning that stretches far passed being forced to do it because you have to, and instead turns into you do it because you want to, that is when life really starts to take shape and become fun. Time to get lost in your purpose, baby!
