When I ask this question to those people around me, they reply with either “What is it?” or “You mean my hobbies?”
It is hard to see one who knows exactly what he wants to do with his life and devotes all of his energy to it. You can ask your surroundings to see if one can come up with a solid answer.
The Why is not a small hobby or something too conceptual that one can’t reach. It is simply your trueself, your purpose of existence that powers you and drives you to achieve your utmost satisfaction.
And apparently, your Why is very important. It brings passion to your work, gratitude to your daily activities and clarity to your life. It helps you stay focused. And it is a miracle.
An example of my friend’s is: “I want to be so rich that I will use money as a mean to help others.” No jokes. It is seriously his Why.
Or your Why can be as simple as: “To reach a peaceful mind and never feel negative again.”
But many of us are struggling to find the Why, in the course of not even knowing they are finding it. Have you ever asked yourself the question: “What do I want the most in my life?” or “Which career path should I choose for the rest of my life?” And then not long after, you forget that “big” question to dive into your normal day-to-day activities.
You may see it’s hard to answer that question, because you either do not know the answer, or do not want to draw a big picture that seems to be unachievable, or you do want to find it but are clueless of how to.
If you are keen on finding your Why but don’t know how to, then read on, you may be interested in my method:
GETTING STARTED: HOW TO KNOW YOUR WHY THE UNBOUND WAY
Here is the recipe for you to cook your Why:
Ingredient #1: Find something new to do (or to think). Make a list of them.
Why it must be new? The answer is this simple: Old ways don’t open new doors!
If you do the same chores, repeat the same hobbies, think and talk the same way, you will never know your potential.
And “the potential” is in your future. It is not the current you. The current you is old.
We all want to develop ourselves. No?
You do not know how well you can do something new without putting it into action.
Ingredient #2: Don’t make it too difficult. Start small.
Not every one of us can do extraordinary things, but every big thing starts with small steps.
Plus, small things are easy to start, especially with those who love their comfort zone, who are introverted and who procrastinate.
Ingredient #3: Do it with persistence.
I have published an ebook for this method, named “100 new little things – A method for knowing your Why”.
Why is it 100? Of course, when you have the list of your new little things, it can be 50, 80, or 500. Just do not make it 3 or 5.
The crucial idea here is that we will have to do it in a row. Make it a regular series. Because our new things are small, we have to continue to make it happen and thrive for the unordinary.
Why is this method the right way to give a try?
It is proven that Doing new things can help you in many ways to improve yourself:
- It is a trait of successful people
- It helps you Overcoming your fear
- It leads you to Learning new skills
- It helps Improving your career path
- It shows you the treasures of life
- It is a method to find your freedom
- It leads to big changes
- It improves your creativity
I hope this helps, and if you want to have more guidance on how to know your own Why, your true self, kindly visit my website:
