You know, it isn’t about your WHY!
It’s about your MUST! (something necessary, vital, or required)
In the business game, you’ll hear over and over again that you have to connect your activities to your WHY.
You know, WHY are you in business? WHY do you do what you do?
Supposedly your WHY will give you enough reasons to do the right things.
However, my experience has been that a simple WHY isn’t enough.
When your WHY becomes your MUST or ELSE…THEN you will do the right actions.
For instance…why should you eat less junk food? So you’ll be healthy.
Until your doctor says, ‘if you don’t stop eating junk food you’ll die in 3 months’ THEN it becomes a MUST STOP EATING JUNK FOOD!
Motivation and Inspiration are great words, too.
Motivation comes from the INSIDE…Inspiration comes from the OUTSIDE.
You know…you’re sitting on the couch WATCHING ‘Biggest Loser’ eating nachos. You get INSPIRED to do better with your eating and fitness habits. Motivation comes the next day when you leave the coke and twinkies at home and pack a healthier lunch.
Or…you watch the ‘Secret Millionaire’ change the lives of thousands by giving away hundreds of thousand of dollars and you get INSPIRED to do more. Motivation comes the next day when you volunteer at the Senior Center or Battered Women’s Shelter or…
Today, I want to INSPIRE you to consider what your MUST is in your life.
What MUST you do…or ELSE?
Tomorrow…it’s up to you to MOTIVATE yourself to take one action to head toward your MUST.
Live Inspired – Live At Your Best,
Why Not Try “Defying Gravity!”
