You’ll see this advice all over the place. And it’s obvious why you would see it. Because it makes sense. But coaches, consultants, and advisors of every flavor will tell you that you’ve gotta know your “why.” What it is that would drive you to do what you’re doing. Or what it is that would motivate you to pursue that dream. And if you can’t immediately think of another motivator, then YOU are the reason.
And it’s not a selfish thing to say YOU are the reason.
Well, it can be, if you let it. But in and of itself it’s not selfish. Because you might realize the most important thing you can do, right now, is to prepare the best YOU that you can. But how do you know what’s the best YOU?
Well, you can compare yourself to others.
When I first started creating business and social media profiles, of course, I wanted to put my best face forward. Who wouldn’t? So, I hired a professional photographer for a professional headshot. And I set up a cover image, on those profiles, with the “right info.” And then I checked to see how I compared to others online.
But then it dawned on me. People only show you what they want you to see.
And you could get discouraged when you see those “perfect” profiles and pictures. Or, who knows? You might be encouraged because you think you look much better than the average Joe or Jane. Either way, that shows how easy it is to get the wrong impression of YOU.
So, getting back to your whole “why” stuff…
If YOU are the reason you’re gonna do what you do today, then YOU are the starting point, too. But the starting point to what? Where do you want to go with the new and improved version of YOU?
And what’s your plan to make forward momentum every day? Do you have a plan for some action steps you can take each day to get you closer to what you want in your life? Yeah, improving YOU is a great place to start. But, as you can see, it’s a tiny scratch on the surface, if success and fulfillment are parts of your goals.
I’ve helped a lot of young (and not so young) newbies focus on their “why.” And I’ve helped a lot of them take their dreams and goals to a level they only dreamed of before we connected.
So, if you’re in that figuring out stage, or even if you’re ready to roll, I’d love to talk to you about how I might be able to help you get better results faster. Book a free call and let’s talk soon. After all, YOU are the reason I do what I do.
