Once I hear the why, if it moves me to take action, good luck stopping me.
A quote I heard today in church, which inspired this post, went like this; The what informs, the "why" transforms.
So why do you want to accomplish your goal? What will your life look like when you've accomplished it? Will the accomplishment of your goal make you more significant? Why do you want it so bad?
These are all questions I've asked myself during my journey through this life and in the pursuit of my dreams. Would you agree that if you don't really know why you're doing something, it never really moves you in a way that excites and motivates you to get it done? Would you agree that if you had a good enough reason to do something, you'd take action toward accomplishing it?
Let me give you an illustration...
Let's say I lay out a board in front of you on the ground and I say to you "walk across this board", if you're anything like me, you'll ask; "why?". If I don't give you a good reason, you'll hesitate, won't you?
I say; "you'll see". You walk across it. Nothing good happens and nothing bad happens. I then ask you to take the elevator with me to the top of a 100 story apartment building and I start to lay out that exact same board from that apartment building to the one just beside it. The buildings are about 20 feet apart and I say to you "Walk across this board to the other building". Would you do it? Absolutely not!
What's the difference? The difference is that the cost of crossing the board this time is too great and nothing of equal or greater value is offered in return. In other words, the why is not big enough, or in this case, the why is missing altogether.
Let's say I offer you $20, would you do it? Probably not. But what if your child or someone you love more than anything is trapped on the other side of the building and their only escape to safety is you walking across that board and bringing them safely back? Would you do it now? I reckon you'd try a heck of a lot harder wouldn't you?
So what changed? Did the hardness of the task change? Did I make it easier? What changed?
The only one thing that changed was your reason for crossing the board - your reason why!
See... when you can develop a why strong enough that it places urgency to achieve your dream, you will find that whether the task is easy or whether the task is difficult, you will do whatever you need to do to accomplish it.
My why involves my family, my friends and those people that I'm surrounded with every day. I want more than anything for every single person I meet to be better because they knew me. I want all of my friends, family and associates to get all the information and support they need to accomplish their deepest desires.
My goal for 2013 is to IMPACT 2013 individual lives, directly and indirectly, by providing them with my support and other support materials that will transform their thinking and virtually transform their lives as a result of altering their belief of themselves, others, and the world around them. And I honestly believe that I have all of the resources and ability to accomplish this goal.
