Purpose. You Gotta Have It.

Have you ever started something only to stop a few days later? And when you stop you are frustrated with yourself because, well *GOSH*, this was something you thought you really wanted?

Phew! You’re human.

The problem isn’t in the ‘what’, but the ‘why’.

In order to keep going despite obstacles there needs to be an awesome ‘WHY’ dangling in front of you. Having a purpose for doing what you are doing, even if it seems crazy to the rest of the world, will fuel your fire to burn bright even on the darkest of nights.


Before you jump into chasing your dreams with both feet, you need to take a few moments and write some things down.

  • Why must you do this?
  • What will accomplishing it give you?
  • What impact are you going to have in the world?
  • How are you going to feel when you’ve accomplished your dream?
  • What is inspiring you right now?
  • What is moving you into action?

Now you’re ready to make it happen.

Resistance comes all of the time. Every single day. We believe a lie that things will be easy if we are supposed to do them.


Truth time.

It will not be easy, but it will be worth it.

Don’t let your why die.

Keep going even when you hit resistance head on. The most valuable things in life are not the easiest or the cheapest, rather they are what you fought, bled, and cried for.

  • Stop whining. Start shining.
  • Stop comparing. Start sharing.
  • Stop complaining. Start training.

One day you’re going to look back on your life with regret or pride. Find your why and do not let go, no matter how fiercely the winds of life blow.

Its time to take responsibility and live your life.

What is your ‘why’?

    I think I life well lived will have both in the rear view mirror — it’s just a matter of precentge and proportion of each.

    Really go today! (as I sit and stare t my Lifecycle with little intention ofmounting it — until now)

    Why? Because the alternative is climb into a coffin and wait…
