This morning I listened to an excellent podcast by Hal Elrod, who wrote The Miracle Morning, which helped inspire my decision to improve my life by optimizing everything I do. He spoke about living with purpose and how it drives your life in such a more powerful way when you know your “why.” As in, why do you do what you do?
I am familiar with the concept through Hal, and others; plus we are even harnessing the power of a “why story” at work in our sales process. However, I just can’t seem to find mine… I think I almost have it, but it just out of reach of my conscious mind to grasp and define. That little sucker is purposely eluding me, I tell you!
The good news is, in his podcast Hal mentions that we don’t have to know our whole life’s purpose immediately- whew! But we should start with a short term, generalized “why” to get going. I think I can do that while I search for the deeper meaning.
I’m going to start with: “To be the best version of myself that I can possibly be.”
What about you, what’s your “why?”
