“Identify Your Why”

Sharing this as it is so important…

There are countless reasons for you to start your own work at home business. The

main reason is to generate income. But what will you use the extra income for?

The reasons may include getting out of debt, saving for a child’s college

education, buying a home or car, early retirement, overcome insufficient income,

or just to improve your lifestyle overall. Whatever the reason, it is important

to your success to identify it and stay focused on it. There are several reasons

for this.

First off, identifying your why will get you started. I don’t

know how many people investigate starting a work at home business but never get

started. A strong why will enable you to take that all important first step. If

your why is strong enough, you can attain it and you will do what it takes to

achieve it.

Secondly, when you identify your why, you have a goal to work

towards and a target to aim at. Staying focused on your why enables you to keep

going as you are reminded why you are doing all the hard work involved in

working at home.

Thirdly, identifying your why will help you get through

those days when things look bleak. I can tell you from experience that there are

times when you will want to quit. There are many ups and downs when working at

home. You will begin to doubt that that this just won’t work. When you stay

focused on your why, you are constantly reminded to not give up. In the end it

will be worth it.

Fourthly, focusing on your why will enable you to

battle the doubters. You know them. They are the people, often close to you,

that tell you how foolish your undertaking is. They let you know up front that

you are wasting your time. But your why, if you stay focused on it, will help

you overcome these dissenters.

Fifthly, identifying your why will help

you in making decisions about your business. There have been times when I had a

decision to make about my work at home opportunity. Should I spend money on

this, should I take the time to do that? My why was always there, enabling me to

make a decision that I would not have made had I not had a goal or vision that I

was working towards.

Sixthly, your why will cause you to work harder and

longer. There may be days when you just don’t feel like working. You would

rather sit in front of the TV or go somewhere or just take a nap. When that

“why” is engrained in your soul, you won’t be able to ignore it. You will spend

the necessary time to work at becoming a success with your business. That

doesn’t mean that you ignore your family. It does mean that you will use more of

your free time to work towards your goal.

Finally, identifying your why

will cause you to be a success. If your goal is strong enough, you will succeed.

A strong why will cause you to do pretty much whatever it takes to achieve it.

There is nothing that will cause you to push forward like a strong why. The

question is, “Have you identified yours?”
