Understand your Why – The Key to Overcoming Obstacles and Achieving Success

Understanding your why is crucial for achieving success and personal growth in both your personal and professional life. Whether you’re a leader, manager, motivator, or mentor, there is a driving force behind what you do. 

A Driving Force 

Understanding your why is crucial for achieving success and personal growth in both your personal and professional life. A success mindset is essential for achieving one’s goals and reaching their full potential. 

If you’re a leader, you’re a manager, a motivator, or a mentor, you do what you do because there is a driving force. And that’s what helps you and enables you to overcome the obstacles that are going to come your way. And there are going to be so many of them. The key is to really determine what your Why is, and hone in on that. And understand that and remind yourself of that when things get tough, and they will. It’s more than just a paycheck or title, it’s a larger purpose that gives you the motivation to overcome obstacles and achieve success. 

Don’t Quit

The days when you want to quit and you want to just leave everything and sit back on the couch and relax, don’t do that. Remind yourself of the Why. Why are you a leader? Why are you a coach? Why are you a mentor? Why are you an individual contributor? Why are you on the front lines? Why are you an engineer? Why are you a dad? Or why are you a husband? Or why are you a friend? 

When facing challenges, remind yourself of your why. Your why will be larger and more important than the how and the what, and it will enable you to push through difficult times. Take a step back and reflect on your larger purpose. Get encouraged by things you can do and there will be a big list of challenges I have overcome. 

Your Purpose 

What is the purpose? Why are you doing what you’re doing? What is your vision? Where do you want to take it? What role can you as an individual play in the larger purpose for what you’re doing? Understanding your purpose is critical for achieving personal growth and development. And sometimes we get so caught up in life and in the Now and the Urgent, that we lose sight of the Why. And we lose sight of the bigger picture and the Important. As you continue to move into 2023, please take the time to pause and reflect on 2022 and really understand- Did you live your life in 2022, perpetuating and in accordance with your Why? Did what you did in 2022,  further your Why. 

Pause & Reflect 

If you didn’t, then you know what-take a pause. The slate is clean again and is now completely blank, for you to write on and to create on.
