I think that is a very good question. If you don’t know why you are doing something then you WILL lose motivation and eventually quit. Think about it. You have to have a “WHY” – correct? So now you ask “Steve, what do you mean, a WHY?”
Let me put this into perspective for you. Why do you wake up each day? It’s most likely not because you can’t wait to get to the office.
Say you want to lose weight. It’s not because you are board. It’s most likely because you want look and feel better about yourself, want to feel good at the beach, have a reunion coming up or maybe you had the doctor tell you “You need to lose weight for health reasons”. Those are good reasons to lose weight, yes?
When it comes to doing or building your own business, you have to understand why you are doing what you are doing. For me personally, I do it for my wife and two sons and the time I have with them. I want more time with them and I am working towards the Krivda Legacy. Your why has to be something of significance. If you are just working because you want more “things”, it won’t be strong enough. Say I asked you to walk across a 2″ x 12″ plank laid across the ground for $20, you would do it, right? Okay, now say I bridged it across two buildings for that same $20. I am guessing that you would tell me to go pound sand, right? That’s what I thought. Lets take this to the next level. Now say there is a baby or your own child at the other end of the plank on the building and yes, the building is on fire. You wouldn’t think twice about crossing that plank and you know it even for free, haha.
You see the difference? It’s the same plank with different situations and reasons or a WHYs to cross it. You have to determine why you do what you do or you will lose your focus, stop caring and eventually quit.
Wow me with your “WHY” below in a comment.
“To your legacy”
