Hi Team...

For years we have been told we have to know our WHY- my question is why?

Think about it- know your why...

What if I told you that your WHY shows itself when you know a few other things first....

Like, knowing your WHO.

You must know who you are.

When you know WHO you are- you can live a life of conviction, a life of deep, centralized belief.

And if you watch what goes on around you each day- it is very clear that many people are running around not knowing WHO they are- and are easily influenced by others who know what theirs is- even if that WHO is negative, destructive, and disrupting to society.

You must know who you are.

Your who is your values, your character, your beliefs, and really your core.

Without a clear WHO, nothing else matters.

Next, you must have a clear WHAT.

Coach, why is my WHAT important?

Well, you what is critical because it keeps you aligned to your who and keeps you on path at all times. Look at your WHAT and your WHO as working together to keep you moving towards something that truly has meaning to you.

Ready for the (WHATs)?

  • What makes you unique. 
  • What talents and abilities do you have that come natural to you.
  • What do you stand for.
  • What is important to you.
  • What fills you up when you do it.
  • What excites you and what are you passionate about.

You see, when you can uncover your whats- you get immense clarity.

Combine that with your WHO, and there is no reason to have a WHY.

Because- your why shows itself.

And, for the first time you can walk with true confidence, a true knowingness of who you are and what you want, a knowingness you will not please everybody- but you are so convicted to something bigger than you that your mission becomes your driving force in life.

Could you imagine being in this place and frame of mind?

Maybe for the first time you would feel so convicted, aligned, motivated, and cause driven that your confidence is elevated to a level that it has never been before.

This causes a rise in energy, a rise in self-esteem, and the abandonment of the feelings of tension, stress, burnout, and frustration.

I firmly believe people that are burnt-out, lacking passion, burnt-out, and frustrated are totally out of alignment and are trying for force an outcome, simply because they are out of alignment.

It is truly that simple.

When I Coach individuals- the determining factor of their success is their physical and mental positioning and outlook.

Are they doing what they love and are they enjoying the day to day that is associated with it.

Does this mean they do not face problems?

Nope. They do.

But, they are so charged in a positive way that the problems always get solved- driven by their passionate alignment and their clear WHAT & WHO.

Got it?

So, today, ask yourself:

  • WHO AM I?

Start there and you will see how your energy begins to shift to a CAN-DO position!

Let's go!

Your Coach,
