Looking for purpose? ...WHY!!
Stop for a moment and ask yourself the question; WHY?
Please bear with me through the following example:
Say for instance you enroll yourself in a new course in online marketing, or blog writing as an example. You start off with great enthusiasm and you follow the tutorials to the T. You apply what you learn and you’re rather proud of the progress you’re making.
One week pass and you keep pushing forward. One month pass and comes the third month or so, everything suddenly becomes a drag. The excitement is worn off and the course suddenly impacts on your private time.
You realise that this now has become work!! Gone is the fun, the enthusiasm, the excitement of breaking new grounds and you realise that you still have to put in a pile of work before results will be starting to show.
What happened, you may ask.
- Even your gut is objecting when you think of the work that that is required.
- What is it that will motivate you again to keep going forward from here on?
- You might have paid for the course and even be paying monthly subscriptions to supporting tools like e-mail responders etc.
- You realise that the expectation of creating a business or income online now actually turned into an ongoing expense instead.
-You begin to wonder if you have what it takes to follow through with this?
- How is it that others to will follow through and be successful in the same project and you have no motivation left and feel like quitting?
Well, don’t feel bad about yourself.
Were all human and we all get to this point from time to time.
You see the point is, we all can enroll in courses.
These courses will take us from point A to Z and tell us exactly WHAT to do.
Everything that needs to be done will (hopefully) be explained.
Proper courses, that are well structured, will also explain in detail HOW we need to do the WHAT’s.
We can thus learn WHAT to do and we can learn HOW to do it, but trust me on this;
The motivation will come from your own answered WHY.
If you have scanned through the introductory info shared this far, please do yourself a favour and pay attention to the section below:
Please take the time and ponder on these questions:
It will even benefit you more when you write the answer to each question down.
- WHY did you choose to get involved in a specific project?
- WHY do you need to be successful in this project?
- WHY can’t you afford not to be successful in it?
- WHY do you need to draft a work plan for the project?
Then you may continue and ask yourself more WHY questions, like for instance;
- WHY do you waste so much time hanging around on social media?
- WHY do you tend to procrastinate?
- WHY do you bother to read this blog post?
By asking these WHY questions, you will actually get to your purpose.
You need to find something within that gives you reason, that push you and WHY you need to do this.
It is not going to get easier.
In fact, it is going to get tougher.
If you know WHY, you will know the purpose.
Once you have realised what it means to define your WHY and you have actually defined your “WHY”, you will realise the PURPOSE why you do things, ….or don’t.
WORK YOUR PURPOSE UNTIL SUCCESS COME LOOKING FOR YOU.

Thanks for a great article. You hit some key spots that really make sense and anyone should find this information useful...I know I did.
Thanks for taking the time to read the post and your comment on it Pamela, it is much appreciated.
I am glad that you found the information useful.
Nice subject. And can't agree more. The key question is whether we keep asking ourselves the why.
This is a great article. Sometimes, all we need is a little bit of introspection. How we are going to answer our "whys" in life.
I knew my "why" for over 40 years. Now I am retired and I am struggling a bit. I'm figuring it out and this post was informative!
I love the idea of “working” from my purpose. I needed to read this!
This is such a powerful post. I totally agree with you. The motivation comes from us. Thanks for sharing this.
This is a great article. Sometimes we just go through our days without finding our purpose. We were put on this earth for a reason and it is important that we know WHY so we will be able to fulfill that mission.
This is so important! Finding your "why" in a career was essential for me!
This is such an inspirational post. It really made me think about some of the things in my life. Thanks.
This is great. I'm all about needing to find my purpose. Appreciate the push to do so!
Great post! I have enrolled in several online courses and joined workshops. I get excited for the first two weeks and then the excitement started to turn into a drag. I need to continue find the motivation and remember why I started my business is the reason that keep me going.
Thank you for this wonderful reminder. I know a handful of people who don't feel right about themselves.
This words are very helpful especially for times that we need to calibrate ourselves. I will probably save this and get back whenever needed
...Soul searching on goal setting and results :)
<[Results flow from the ability to get your physical, mental and intellectual ability in sync with your "Will and Need to Succeed".
(Your defined "Why", that is)
Once understood and mastered, there will be no need to try and reach goals. Success results will come looking for you instead.]>
