The Power Of A Why

Do you want to be rich, wealthy, well off? Are you willing to do whatever it takes? Are you going to work whatever business opportunity you can find until it works?

There are millions of people who want a better life, to have more money, or to just simply be financially free. Billions of dollars are spent each year by people looking for the next way to vault themselves into the stratosphere of the wealthy. And yet for all the people looking, and for all the money spent on different systems, relatively few people do become truly wealthy and achieve the financial independence that they are looking for. The reason for this? Most people simply don’t really know or believe why they should be wealthy.

Can you think of why you want to be rich? What is the reason deep down in your gut? Is it strong enough? Do you believe in it enough?

A good why is what keeps you motivated after all the rah-rah from a seminar has died away and you’re choosing between building your future and sitting in front of the idiot box for yet another evening of mindless entertainment. A good why is what makes you talk to that next person after you’ve just gotten shot down twenty times in a row. A good why is the reason that even in your darkest hour, when everything looks like the whole world is against you, you keep on fighting, knowing that maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but that as long as you keep learning and growing and doing, you will find a way to be successful.

Now this is not to say that a good why will keep you from making mistakes or being stupid sometimes. That is simply part of human nature. The why though will help you correct and learn from your mistakes instead of being kept down by them.

We have all seen the power of the why in action. Think back in your life to a time when you really wanted something, or even really wanted to avoid something. Maybe you really wanted to buy your first home and worked a ton of overtime so that you could get a down payment. Maybe you really wanted to get your degree and worked tirelessly at both your studies and a job just to accomplish this goal. Maybe you just simply wanted to be with one particular person and you did everything you could to be with them or see them.

Were you always successful in your endeavors? Of course not. Even working tirelessly at something is no guarantee of success. But just look at how much you were able to do to work towards that objective. Look at how much you were able to accomplish when striving for that thing that you wanted from deep down in your soul. That is the power of the why. You don’t always reach what you’re going for, but you are almost always a better person for it. For the experience and knowledge gained, for the friends and contacts made along the way, or just simply for the memories made, having a good why to be that driving force in you is always worth it.

So let me ask you, what is your why? Your spouse? Your children? A dream you’ve always had? Just wanting to be the best? Find that fire in you, that will drive you through any obstacle that comes across your path and I promise you, your life and the lives of those around you will be better for it.
