unlock your own unique answer to the question why
How many times have you been afraid to walk through the door of opportunity because you were fearful of making a mistake? How many times have you limited yourself because you were afraid you might appear foolish in front of your peers? Many times we let these self-imposed limitations stand in the way of progress, or moving forward. Staying within what is comfortable may prevent mistakes, but it can also limit the excitement that comes from trying something new for the first time. Expanding our boundaries of thought, feeling, and action means we have to put ourselves out there, to step into the arena, and not be afraid to make mistakes. Mistakes are part of the journey we are all on. But mistakes are only negative if they inhibit further growth. If you are fearful of testing out a new approach, or adding a new initiative to your business, or learning a new skill, you may be making the biggest mistake of all. If you are committed to growth, each new initiative, market, approach, or skill becomes a tremendous learning experience.
What does it take to unlock your own unique answer to the question why? For me it’s finding my purpose, my north star, my motivation to keep going when at times it would be so easy to just turn around. Purpose is at the foundation of everything I hold close to me, and it guides my daily thoughts and actions. Purpose brings great passion, fulfillment, and happiness to my life.
I want to challenge all of you to find and live your purpose. Why do you do the work you do? What you do for a living isn’t easy, it’s hard. I know there are times when the work you do seems incredibly challenging and maybe overwhelming. It’s during these times you can call on your purpose, your inner voice that whispers to you to keep moving forward. When you know and live your purpose, it opens up the door for you to share it with others.
My hope for all of you is you will find great purpose, meaning, and fulfillment and through your work you will transform the lives of many.
