A new business is always a risk. People risk to avoid pain, or to achieve pleaseure. ANSWERING THESE QUESTIONS MAY HELP YOU FIND YOUR "WHY".
1. What gets you REALLY excited?
2. How many hours a week do you work?
3. What do you LOVE about your job?
4. What do you HATE about your job?
5 What do you do with your free time?
6 If you had 2 months vacation and all the money you wanted, what would you do?
7.How do you like the people you work with?
8.What problem scares you to death that more money could solve?
9.If you had all the money you needed, what HUGE problem would go away?
10.If you had all the TIME in the world to do anything you wanted, what would you do?
11.Other than money, what are you looking for?
Your WHY should never be about money. It should be about who YOU really are as a person.
When you die, what are people going to say about you? Are they going to remember that you paid off that Visa bill a week before you died?
When I die, I want to leave behind a legacy for my children and grandchildren. What is the legacy you ask? It is service to others without expecting anything in return. I wake up in the morning and live my life that way. I mentor and coach people for free five days a week and don't ever ask anything in return.
I challenge anyone who reads this to dig down deep and write out your WHY.
