There used to be a blood pressure commercial that finished with this tag line: “If you won’t do it for yourself, do it for them.” And thinking about that made me remember a conversation I had with a client of mine. We talked about why we do what we do.
Turns out we both do what we do for about the same reasons.
And family was number one for both of us. Plus, we both want financial security. And I definitely want to work on my own terms. So, I built a business that helps me work from home and take care of my kids.
And I’m grateful and blessed to have been doing this since my kids were crawling around the living room floor. Now, my youngest is about to finish out his school years. And my two older daughters are working on careers (and even business ideas) of their own.
Just knowing I was able to be with them more and guide them more is a reward I can’t even calculate. And I’m sure they won’t fully know how much it meant to me until they have kids of their own some day.
Your reasons for doing what you do might not be the same as mine. But, whatever they are, never let them out of your head. In fact, if you can’t say what your reasons are right this very minute, stop reading this.
Yeah, stop doing whatever you’re doing. And grab yourself a pen and paper. And put everything else down, too. Because you need to figure out why you do what you do, today. Right now. Then, write down your reasons and read ’em out loud to yourself.
We humans just don’t do as well when we don’t know why we do what we do.
But, my guess is…you already know your reasons.
Even so, the challenges and frustrations of the day might blur your vision. I’ve been there. We all have. But, like I always say (or at least as often as I can think to say) keep your eyes on the prize.
If you won’t do it for yourself, do it for them.
Speaking of doing it for them…
I’ll be launching RondaReady YOUniversity soon. It’s System Thinking for younger people about to go out on their own. And it’s based on a proven System. A system that’s helped lots and lots of business owners and entrepreneurs turn 5 figures businesses into 6 and 6 figures businesses into 7.
You should know…I’m gonna offer it at a substantial discount only to those who get my daily emails. But that’ll only be for the first few days when I launch and release it.
So, don’t dilly dally. Get my free emails for all the updates. And if you’re already a subscriber, set up notifications so you don’t miss out on the offer. Get Ready, and…
