How To Find Your WHY?

How To Find Your WHY?

This blog was ORIGINALLY published in 2013 but was updated in February 2017

What is your “WHY?”

The main issue I have heard, from tens if not hundreds of thousands of people over the years is that, so many people KNOW they desperately WANT and NEED to lose the weight, but for whatever reason they can never string enough little ‘wins’ together to get any momentum. 

Have you found yourself saying these things? What about THINKING these things?

“I have tried so many times, BUT…”

“I need to workout, but can’t find the time…”

“I can’t seem to stay (or get) motivated”

“It is too hard to eat right…”

“I workout for a day or two, I don’t see results, so I stop…”

Are any of these you? If you are looking for answers on fixing the above I am going to turn this back to you and ask a very important question:  What is your why?

The KEY to your Success

It is impossible to stay committed and determined to do ANYTHING unless you know your “WHY”.  Your “why” is the REAL reason, the DRIVING reason that you WANT to change, workout, get healthy, or whatever it is that you truly want to do.

You can’t change for someone else and you can’t change for insignificant reasons. You can ONLY change if your WHY becomes important and visible to you.

Your “WHY” is the REAL reason, that underlies EVERYTHING and becomes your CORE driver and motivator.

When it is identified and understood, and when it is aligned correctly with your intentions, you become unstoppable towards your goal.

When it comes to fat loss, if you can identify your TRUE “why” then you can get and stay motivated, you CAN massively increase your fat loss, and you can experience a boost in your overall energy and confidence by overcoming an obstacle in your life.

How do you find your why?

Block out some “Me-time” and put a lot of thought into this. WHAT is your why?

Flip through magazines and see what appeals to you and consider making a vision board which can help reveal some deep desires and why’s to you. Do some soul searching and get serious in your thinking.

  • Is it for health?
  • To feel GREAT daily?
  • For more energy?
  • To be around and active for your children?
  • There is no wrong “why”, it just needs to have great meaning and be personal to YOU!

Along those lines, you can’t take somebody else’s why and make it yours.  It does not matter that your family, doctor, friends, etc., think something should be important to you. YOU have to make it important to YOU!

Once you get to the root of what your “why” is, it CHANGES and DRIVES you. All of a sudden solutions will start presenting themselves to your problems. The hurdles become crystal clear and you start to take action and make things happen — all because you found out what dives you. You found your why.

Discovering your WHY is the most important step to changing, as it gets your mind right. It is a critical first step that I include in my programs because once you find your “why” and your mind is focused, you cannot be stopped!

When your mind is active and focused on positive things, you WILL get positive results the exact same way an unsure and unfocused mind gets poor results.

If you are ready to make a change and find the answer to whatever your dilemma may be (no time, lack of motivation, etc.),  FIND YOUR WHY …and the answer will come to you. 🙂

Excuses or Solutions…YOU Decide!
