Define your “My Business Why”

Have you defined your “My Business Why”?

Stop for a moment and ask yourself the question WHY?

Define your “My Business Why” | My Business Why

“Why do you do this, or why do you do that?

It is not such a silly question as it may sound.

Please bear with me through the following example:

Say for instance you enroll yourself in a new course teaching network marketing, or blog writing as an example. You start off with great enthusiasm and you follow the tutorials to the T. You apply what you learn and you’re rather proud of the progress you’re making.

One week pass and you keep pushing forward. One month pass and comes the third month or so, everything suddenly becomes a drag. The excitement is worn off and the course suddenly impacts on your private time.
You realize that this now has become work!! Gone is the fun, the enthusiasm, the excitement of breaking new grounds and you realize that you still have to put in a pile of work before results will be starting to show.

– What happened? you may ask.
– Even your gut is objecting when you think of the work that that is required.
– What is it that will  motivate you again to keep going forward from here on?
– You might have paid for the course and even be paying monthly subscriptions for supporting tools like e-mail responders etc.
– You realize that the expectation of creating a business or income online now actually turned into an ongoing expense instead.
-You begin to wonder if you have what it takes to follow through with this?
– How is it that others will follow through and be successful in the same project and you have no motivation left and feel like quitting?

Well, don’t feel bad about yourself.
We’re all human and we all get to this point from time to time.

You see the point is, we all can enroll in courses.
These courses will take us from point A to Z and tell us exactly WHAT to do.
Everything that needs to be done will (hopefully) be explained.
Proper courses, that are well structured, will also explain in detail HOW we need to do  the WHAT’s.
We can thus learn WHAT to do and we can learn HOW to do it, but trust me on this,
the motivation will need to come from your internal self.  –> From your own answered WHY.

If you have briefly scanned through the introductory info shared this far, please do yourself a favor and pay attention to the section below:

Please take the time and ponder on these questions:
It will even benefit you more when you write the answer to each question down.
– WHY did you choose to get involved in a specific project?
– WHY do you need to be successful in this project?
– WHY can’t you afford not to be successful in it?
– WHY do you need to draft a work plan for the project?

Then you may continue and ask yourself more ” WHY” questions, like for instance;
– WHY do you waste so much time hanging around on social media?
– WHY do you tend to procrastinate?
– WHY do you even bother to read this blog post?




By asking these “WHY” questions, you will actually get to your purpose.

You need to find something within that gives you reason,
that pushes you forward  WHY you need to do this.

It is not going to get easier.
In fact, it is going to get tougher.
If you know your WHY, you will know the purpose.

If you have a purpose, you will have internal motivation

Once you have realized what it means to define your WHY and you have actually defined your “WHY”,
you will realize the PURPOSE why you do things,  …or don’t.

Bottom Line:

DEFINE YOUR WHY.   ..and your PURPOSE will be FOUND

Once your PURPOSE in something is defined, your own defined WHY will serve as your constant internal motivator.

You need to reach the point of WORKING FROM YOUR PURPOSE back to the tasks required,
opposed to try and do the tasks and thereby work towards a purpose.

Once the concept has been understood, motivation will follow as a natural result.

The choices that that you make needs to define your WHY.
Choose to be successful and then be just that.

***WHAT IS YOUR WHY?***

Be honest to yourself. Put it on paper and let that be your motivation to do what you do.
…Do it with your heart. It defines your purpose.

I thoroughly enjoyed watching this powerful video about having my purpose defined.

I trust that it will motivate you as it motivated me.

    This is great.

    It’s so important to sometimes just stop with what we’re busy with and remind ourselves again ‘WHY’ we started with it in the first place.

    Thanks for the article.

    Awesome post!!!

    So true that you gotta start with Why. There’s even a book that was recommended to me called “Start with Why” by Simon Sinek.

    I did the very error you wrote about and started a blog without the right “why” and it felt terrible. I’m with the right “why” now and there doesn’t seem to be enough hours in the day to do the project I’m working on. I’m not seeking external motivation as everything is just coming from within!

    Keep spreading the good word! 🙂

      Great! thanks for your comment.
      I followed Simon Sinek on YouTube and I have been positively influenced by his teachings.
      “Why” is definitely the place to start when you need to find motivation from within.
      Cheers 🙂

    Thank you for the article. It is very useful,insightful and well written. I will thus share it with others, especially those that I mentor from time to time. You are so right that everyone’s ‘why’ is a personal and internal driving force to success. Remember that we create our own reality by what we think, what we express and what we do. That is how mind power works. In my opinion the ‘why’ is then the driving force which starts in the thinking pattern. Powerful stuff – looking forward to see more of your work published

    Definitely a helpful post! I always lose motivation after a month or two, I know why I want to do things but I never write it down and lose sight of the end. I am going to write down answers to the why questions right now and look back at them anytime I am feeling unmotivated. My biggest why, is that I don’t want to work for anyone, I want to make my own schedule and live life on my own terms.

    I could emphasize to some degree when reading this. I am creating a blog which I intend to make money from some day. At times though it does seem like work. But on the other hand I do feel proud of what I have accomplished.

    It does though take me away from my family at times. But I think to myself why am I doing this and I push on. Hopefully in time it will give me financial freedom.

    Great post and video. I totally agree that asking why is important. I recently had to ask a few questions, including why so that I could pick up the pieces and go again. I also find that reflection helps me to remain focused and in the game. Thanks for sharing.

    Defining our why is definitely crucial when it comes to building an online business because without really digging down deep to find what drives us in the first place, I think the chances of huge success can be slime.

    Once we find our true why, it propels us which leads to an income that can be life-changing.

    I do see where you’re coming from when repeatedly asking ourselves “WHY” because it can certainly lead to the core purpose.

    When we find our true purpose, it lights a fire within.

    AWSOME video on Desire as well. 🙂

    Thanks

    Great article Cobus.

    I am a member of Wealthy Affiliate and I see all kinds of people trying to make it in online business. And the ones who succeed have one ingredient that those who fail do not possess. And that is the right mindset. Success does not just happen. You have to make it happen. but it will never happen if you do not have the right mindset. And I think your WHY is what drives that positive mindset to succeed. If you focus on your WHY you will figure out the HOW in order to achieve your WHAT.

    Thanks for this article

    Cheers

      Thanks for your comment Kevon, it is really appreciated.
      I agree, once your Why is defined, it will in return create a positive mindset, which is as you said, key to being successful in business.
      …the what and how will then follow.
