You have tired will power before and it’s failed you. You have set resolutions and you have let them go. You thought you were going to lose all that weight last time. You thought you would make all those sales calls last year. You thought you would start a new business reap enormous reward. You thought you were going to get married and not have opportunities. You thought you were going to have children and they would be perfect. Let’s “stop the insanity” and do something different so you can get different and better results.
Let’s try the your why. So, what is your why? You have got to have a reason if you want to make significant improvements to your life. And to make our want to make the necessary changes, your why must be something that is fantastically motivating to you. You have to want to get up and be relentless. So, what is it that moves you the most? Identifying your why is critical.
What motivates you is the ignition to your passion, the source for your enthusiasm, and the fuel of our persistence.
The power of your why is what gets you to stick through the grueling, mundane, and boring task. All of the how’s will be meaningless until your whys are powerful enough.
Until you have set your desire and motivation in place, you will abandon any new path you seek to better your life.
If your why-power – commitment isn’t great enough, if the fortitude of your commitment isn’t powerful enough, you will end up like every other person who makes a resolution to change and gives up too quickly and reverts to sleepwalking through poor choices.
Quote of the week: “We may think there is willpower involved, but more likely .. change is due to want power. Wanting the new addiction more than the old one. Wanting the new me in preference to the person I am now.” – George A. Sheehan
Word of the week: Choice – the right, power, or opportunity to choose; option.
Ask yourself: If willpower has not been strong enough to make significant change in your life – would why power work better?
Speaking With a Purpose: “I help you bridge the gap between … Where you are verses where you want to be.” My ultimate goal – help you become a better you!
Until next time,
