After a breakdown, I discovered my why was key to a life with purpose. The same month the work of Simon Sinek gave me the tools to find it. But it was not before I came across a 4-Part Digital Business Course that I set the next step. Today I’m a life coach and digital business owner.
What’s your why? Maybe the single most important question in your quest to happiness. But also when you want to start a successful business. Someone who made this idea his life mission was Simon Sinek. “Everything I do is devoted to one idea: to inspire people to do what inspires them, so that we can together change the world for the better.” Starting with why is so much more compelling than starting with what. Compare ‘we sell beautiful phones’ with ‘we inspire human interaction’. Why speaks to your emotions, while what speaks to your brain. Great companies as Apple and Nike all start with why.
What about great leaders, they don’t give you a list of what they want to achieve. Martin Luther King said “I have a dream that one day…”. Simon Sinek says: “People don’t buy your product, they buy what you do.” He says too: “Discovering your why is like panning in the river of the past for gold.” It takes time but you know that it’s there.
When I was a copywriter I had no idea about my why. I just wanted to earn money. But underneath I was unhappy and unfulfilled. One day I saw a short YouTube video with the idea of Simon Sinek. After that, I started looking for my Why. I found out: I wanted To help people believe in themselves So That they can live a life worth living too.
To find your why this simple tool could be helpful. Fill in the blanks of the following with your own reason to be in business/life: To……..So That…….
