Why do you do what you do?
Why did you end up where you are?
Why do you feel energized in some situations and not in others?
These are all great questions to ask yourself. We do not want to be a person that falls into a rut. We want to be an individual that is in tune with what is going on, and actively demonstrating how much we love doing what we do.
In January we spoke about our “No List” and the point was made that in order to add or fine tune our lives we must get rid of things that are holding us down. In February we spoke about two very important qualities that need to be a part of everyone’s life. Now that we are in March, I want us to fine tune why we do what we do, because it is the “Why” that will ignite our passion!
Where do you start? Try this week to slow down, to be present, and to be thankful. Start a journal and ask yourself these questions;
What brings me joy?
What gives me energy?
When do I wake up prior to my alarm? What have my best days/weeks looked like?
What have my worst days/weeks look like?
Sometimes taking a test like our Talent DNA Assessment will help you realize and focus on why you are the way you are and how you can help others.
Do you see any patterns? Be honest with yourself because excuses are your worst enemy. For example if you have ever tried to lose weight but lacked the commitment to diet and exercise, then obviously the results will not be there. Look yourself in the mirror and hold yourself accountable. Be honest, work hard, and start walking down a path of joy.
When you do find your “why”, these are the things that will happen:
A new passion will ignite within you! You’ll notice that working overtime doesn’t feel like work!
You’ll be focused and notice how much more you can get done in less time!
You’ll be hungry to grow!
You’ll attract others that are positive, uplifting, and results orientated! On bad days (yes you will still have bad days), you will find the strength to continue and push through!
I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase “misery loves company” right? Let’s not be miserable.
Excited for your week and keep us updated! We would love your feedback!
