Your “why” is your drive, your purpose. Why do you do what you do? Why do you go to work? Why do you wake up? Why do you run? Why do you spend time with your kids? Why?
The “why” is the vital question – before we get to the “how, when, where , and what.” And the “who” – that’s you!
Let’s start with a common issue – why do you eat? Obviously, fuel for your body, right? But some people eat out of necessity, some eat for pleasure, some eat because they are forced (toddlers), some for emotional comfort. The why affects what food is eaten, when and where and how often. Even the how – I don’t know any food lovers that eat foods out of pouches or plastic wrappers.
And from a positive perspective, why do you run or exercise? If there is no joy in it for you, then taking up a workout plan may feel antithetical. But, if your doctor says you need to exercise for health and longevity, and you love your grandchild, then your “why” may be named Susan or Steve. The why isn’t the doctor’s orders, or your own health. It’s that little kid looking up at you to be picked up and played with.
Find your “why” and you can achieve your goals.
Find your “why” and the naysayers, the critics, the sweat and the pain won’t matter. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2JnYcuRW_qo
