What are you working on right now? What is your major product, program or adventure?
For now let’s just call it “Your Business“. It’s your thing!
What is the reason you chose this one?
You know what I’m talking about.
After spending many years online, I have seen many opportunities come and go. I have even jumped in to a few, only to forget down the road as to the reason why. Do you remember the reason you said this is it. This could be the one thing that rocks your world. I have one question for you.
What is your WHY?
You know what I’m talking about, that thing that motivates you to work on the things you need to do daily for your business. This is a major question. If you don’t know the WHY the HOW doesn’t matter! You can have the greatest business available in the world but if you don’t know why your doing it nothing matters. You will eventually fail.
It was 1984 that I discovered my WHY. I was 20 years old and just celebrated my 1 year anniversary. Melisa was working at a local grocery store and I, well I was still working at one of Fort Wayne, In oldest land marks Coney Island Wiener Stand. A place that started in 1914, selling Hot Dogs and Chili and 6 oz Cokes. I started there at age 13 washing dishes. Anyway I’m rambling, back to the why.
A month later Melisa gave birth to our first child. Ms Cortney weighed in at 4 lbs. 11 ozs. She changed our world! Shortly thereafter Melisa was told they were closing the store. I knew I had to make some changes. My wife’s cousin introduced me to a business opportunity. I took a week off to check it out, do some ride alongs and watch him in action. I decided I can do this. Tried to give a two week notice but my boss said go for it. Today he’s 86 and still running Coney Island like he has for 50+ years. It was June 10, 1984 when I quit my job and went full time in the insurance business. It was tough in the beginning. 3 weeks after i started my cousin quits. Couple years later he is doing Carnivals selling Hot Dogs.
What was my Why?
It was my FAMILY! To provide food, clothing and shelter for them. To this day it’s always been about the Family. Because of the WHY, my kids have always been blessed to have mom be able to stay at home. It’s not always been easy, but it’s been a great ride!
I’ve shared a little of my past, let’s talk about YOUR Future. Do you want to be more successful in your business? Live a more happier life. I submit this one idea to you. Take some time today, or this week and think about WHY you’re doing what you’re doing. Get to know your WHY, write it down. Share it with somebody. Because my friend, until you know the why, the how doesn’t matter.
I hope this has been helpful, if it has share it with somebody and leave me a comment below.
