This is thrown around a lot in the business world. It helps to know your purpose for creating your business because, let’s be honest, if you’re in it for the money, you’re not really in it, right? Right. While money is wonderful and having a business is certainly better when you make money, ha!, you have to have another reason for creating your business. But here’s the thing. You don’t have to have a business to have a why. Everyone can have one.
Today I am teaching you how to discover your why.
Step 1: Think about the things you think about most. What takes up space in your mind?
Is it your relationships? Your children? Wanting to serve others? Finding a home for every pup in need of being rescued? Do you love the outdoors and feel led to preserving them? Wish you could seek justice for victims of sex trafficking? Care deeply about fostering children? Do you wish for clean water in every country? Want to take youth on mission trips? Think about traveling to every country? Want everyone to know how to manage their money well? What fires you up?
Step 2: Journal some ideas.
It always helps to write things out. Let your mind wander to those things and your ideas flow onto paper. Write out everything you can think of. No structure to it, just write.
Step 3: Separate the things you care about from the things you are deeply passionate about.
I care about a million things. I want everyone to stop over-consuming crap they don’t need, people to waste less and never, EVER throw trash on the beach, have every victim of sex trafficking rescued and those scum of the earth people committing those crimes to… well, I won’t go into how I think they deserve justice. You get it. I could go on, but the point is that I care about A LOT of things. But what really fires me up, what really gets me talking on and on and on about is women learning to manage their mind and knowing that they don’t have to be everything to everyone. I believe that from that so much else can be done. So much else can spark from those mindset shifts.
What’s the one thing you keep coming back to? If you could solve one problem, what would it be?
Step 4: Write out your why.
Now that you’ve gotten to what matters most, write out what lights your heart on fire – your why. The thing that makes you excited to wake up. The thing you live for.
And as an extra step! Make it pretty and put it somewhere you’ll see it often.
