Tell me if this sounds like you…
You want to cut back or quit drinking.
You want to lose a few pounds.
You want to feel great about yourself.
You want to excel professionally.
And you want to enjoy your life now, not just when you retire some day.
Great! So how will you do it?
You will need this one thing in order to be successful.
Your BIG Why.
If your why isn’t big enough, you most likely will fail before you gain any momentum.
Your why is the driving force and your anchor. It keeps you steady.
It also has to be of deep value. It cannot be a wishy-washer desire. It also cannot be because your spouse or someone else thinks you should. This is about YOU and only you.
Here’s a quick exercise to get you started on knowing your BIG why.
First, you should already have an idea why you want to do this, but let’s take it a few layers deeper. Let’s dive into the core of what’s driving the desire to make sure it will stick.
Write down the reason you have right off the top of your mind. Some common reasons are your health, your career, your family/kids/spouse, or because you want a different life than what you’re currently living and you’ve come to your own enough.
Whatever it is that you just identified, now take it a few layers deeper. Start by using the 5-Why Method to find the real reason. Keep asking why up to 5 times to get your answer. Keep digging. Why is this so important to you?
It sounds easy enough, but it can also feel uncomfortable as you dig deeper into your BIG why. That’s good, it means you’re finding the truth.
Assuming you have now identified what it is, the next question to ask is what could get in your way? There’s always something. Could it be your work, your significant other, or something else?
Take a moment to think about what could trip you up. By identifying it now, you can prepare to address it as it comes up.
You are now ready to set off on your adventure! You have identified BIG why by using the 5-Why Method and you know what could get in your way.
The next question is, how will you do it?
