With Thanksgiving behind us and the festive holiday season ahead of us. Now is a great time for reflection on what you have accomplished and what you are yet to accomplish as this year draws to a close. I thank my good friend Jim McCune for providing this powerful information.
Your “WHY” may just be one of the most powerful tools that you will use in building your business.
Please “Don’t Underestimate the Power of Your Why”.
At one time I did not understand what that meant. But now, I totally get it.
You’ve probably already figured out an income goal. Maybe you want to make
an extra $500 per month, or $1000, or $5000 or $10000 or more. But, the
question that my mentor asked me is the same one I will now ask you:
“Why do you want that income?”
What will that money do for you? What will it allow you to do? What will you do
Will it allow you to quit your job? Will it allow you to donate money to a charity?
Will it allow you to travel more? Will it allow you to spend more time with your
children or grandchildren?
You see, a WHY is much more than a number. It is the driving force or reason that you started to look for a home-based business or a way to make extra money from home in the first place.
You need to take a few minutes today to write down your WHY and complete the WHY worksheet that I’ve attached at the bottom of this post.
I know, I know, completing a WHY worksheet IS NOT an Cash Producing Activity.
BUT, it is very important to keeping you focused on constantly doing Cash Producing
When times are tough, and you run into challenges with your business, you can simply
pull out your WHY worksheet and read over why you’re doing this business. Your WHY will always get you through any challenge.
Because your WHY is the most important thing in the world to you. And that is WHY you will succeed in this business.
I’ve copied out your assignment today at the bottom of this email. You should print it out or copy it out and complete it now. Be honest with yourself and give it some thought.
As soon as you’re done, post it up near your workspace, so that anytime you run into a new challenge, you’ve got your WHY to get you through it.
Let’s get back now to Cash Producing Activities…especially building a bigger
REMEMBER IF THERE IS NO WHY – THERE IS NO WAY!
DISCOVER YOUR “WHY” – WORKSHEET
These questions are designed to stimulate your thinking about your big, bold dreams.
Print this out and work through it. If you want a rich and abundant life, it all begins with a dream!
1. If you had an endless amount of money and time:
What are three things you would do?
Where would you go?
What two things would you purchase?
2. What dream have you always thought about in your mind, but never told anyone
3. If you knew you would be 100% wildly successful, what would you do?
4. Tell me about your dream home – describe the outside, the inside, and the
surroundings in detail.
5. What three things are you really passionate about?
6. If you had $500,000 to donate, who or what organization would you give to?
7. What are three things you want your dreams to do for your family?
8. What is the one thing that really drives you to succeed?
9. What would cause you to get up early, stay up late, and ignore fatigue?
10. List three things that make you happy and full of joy.
Now that you have some good information down on paper, write down
one dream you feel you can accomplish in one year or less. That’s the one you
need to focus on. Work your business with that end in sight. When you make
that dream a reality, set another small dream in front of you and then work
for that one.
Do you realize when you work toward your small dreams you are also working
toward that big, bold dream too?
It’s exciting–best wishes to you as you dream big and pursue excellence!
