Ever since I decided to go out on a limb, and become a entrepreneur to work for myself, that 3 letter word has been thrown at me more times this week outdoing the number of cravings I had for a blueberry bagel with cream cheese and a large chai tea.
I admit it is a legit question and concern by friends and family. I mean I do have a great job, I do basically work for myself, I can pay bills and have some extra cash, So to be honest I can’t really complain. So the “Why” seems like a legitamite response when they’re being told about my future plans right?
Maybe. But the way I see it thru my eyes and if they were the ones coming up to me with their plans, my reply would be nothing similar. My reply would be “WHAT?”
WHAT gave you the idea and inspiration to make that decision?
WHAT benefits you plan to get out of working for yourself?
What tools you plan on using to make it happen?
What goals are you planning to set and what is needed to help meet them?
What are you doing to prepare for the downfalls as well as the rewards?
These are some of the “WHAT” questions I asked myself over and over before finally taking that step to self and financial freedom. But my main “WHAT” question and the one I really sat down and contemplated on for several days was.
WHAT if I don’t try to become financially fit, build a self brand, accomplish self setting goals that my family and friends would be proud of and even follow, as well as inspire others. Then I would never know “WHAT” I am capable of and never see my full potential to live life on my own terms.
This “WHAT” question alone drives me and fuels my passion to become successful. So advice from me to you is….
Don’t feed the “WHY”, and fuel your “WHAT”
