4: It LITERALLY Inspires and Motivates You
On that same note, a good why can literally breath life into your body! In fact, I feel like this is a really good indication of if you’ve been honest with yourself with your WHY. If you’ve settled on an intention or goal that doesn’t really speak to your heart, you’re: more apt to put it off, avoid doing it, and (honestly) only do the bare minimum. Contrastingly, when you’re why really matters to you- it literally brings it’s own motivation and suddenly you find the energy to pursue it.
I have found that when I am really rooted in my why, my motivation and inspiration goes from 5% to 100%. It’s such a big difference for me. When I know WHY I want something, suddenly I’m doing research, carving out time to create, trying new things, and really motivated to pursue daily what I’m working towards.
So there it is! Have I convinced you to spend some time figuring out your why? Feel free to listen to the sister episode of this blog on my podcast where I talk more in depth about the ups and downs of finding our why, and I expand on some of the examples above.
I do want you to know that there is nothing wrong with you if you’re in a period in life where you feel lost. Sometimes during big transitions in your life, the whys can actually support you with rest, recovery, and healing. These are as integral and valid moments in our lives as doing, achieving, or pursuing.
