When building a home-based business, to know your WHY is one of the most important things you can do to be successful.
It’s pretty simple really – knowing your Why is a way of finding your purpose for pursuing your goals.
The bigger your goal – the deeper your reason needs to be for what you are wanting to accomplish.
In order to build a successful Internet-based business, or do anything else for that matter, you must identify your motivations – YOU MUST ‘Find Your Why‘.
You must have a strong reason “WHY” (you are doing it), you must have an unstoppable dream!The WHY is the purpose, cause or belief that drives every one of us ~ Simon SinekClick To Tweet
Knowing your ‘Why’ is a way of showing the reason that you are doing what you’re doing.
It can be:
- I want work from home so I can be there for my children’s precious moments of growing up
- I want to be a role model for those who want to start a home-based business
- I want to get my wife home from her job
- I want to quit my job and work for myself
There are many reason’s WHY you do what you do. Make it your own and make it strong enough to drive you to accomplish your dream.
“Nothing happens without first a dream” ~ Carl Sandburg
Reasons to Find Your Why
If you have you ever been a part of a network marketing business, you will noticed that, after enrolling with them, they will ask you to list everybody you know, and to also write down your “WHY”?
Have you ever wondered why, asking you to write down your “Why” is so important, that it happens to be one of two questions asked by many home-based MLM businesses?
These businesses realize that you can know exactly what you are doing with your home business, know every step you need to take to succeed, but knowing your ‘Why’ is much more important than any of that.
Because, finding your purpose will be your ultimate source of motivation… it will be your reason to keep moving forward even when business is looking bleak or you’ve hit a wall.
The motivation will come from knowing “WHY” you are doing what you are doing.When the WHY is clear, the HOW is easy ~ Jim RohnClick To Tweet
Finding Your Purpose (WHY) – A Strong Benefit for Your Business
Establishing your WHY will give you reasons to continue on, even when you are struggling.
Your Why will help you on those days when you don’t feel like getting out of bed.
Having your Why be STRONG as OAK, will give you an unlimited amount of motivation to provide the ‘HOW’ to move out of your comfort zone and take massive action… it’s what will drive you to success.
Your Why will make you get up early in the morning, stay longer at the office, make one more phone call to a potential prospect, etc.
It is a strong motivator for stopping the wheel spin and getting things accomplished.
Finding Your Why Can Be Your Dream – It Can Be Your Ambition to Strive for Excellence
When you have a dream and have your “WHY” written down, plus have an established, strong mental image in your mind to “Why You ARE Doing This,” it will create a burning desire to achieve greatness, produce something better for your future.
Some people will allow their dreams to fade away to nothing, but those people who really succeed in business, and in life, are those that have established an unbreakable bond with their WHY until their dream becomes reality.
Your dream doesn’t have to be something that is overwhelming or massive. It doesn’t have to be something that will change the lives of millions of people or leave a dent in history.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s a good thing to think big, but make sure your dream gives you the burning desire to inspire you take action.
Your dream will be the greatest force in life… it will provide more leverage for taking action than anything else a person can fathom.
