Tips for Finding Your “Why”

Have you ever found yourself at a crossroads, questioning the traditional checklist of life and wondering if there’s something more? That’s where I found myself six months ago, embarking on a journey of self-discovery to find my ‘why.’

As human beings, we’re wired to prioritise our physical needs – eating, drinking, and surviving. But as we progress through life, we realise that there’s more to it than just ticking off boxes on a traditional checklist. We yearn for a sense of greater meaning, one that satisfies our psychological, physiological, and spiritual needs. In this blog, I’ll share my personal journey of finding my ‘why’ and offer tips to help you find yours too.

the importance of having a “why”

Having a ‘why’ is essential for both your personal and professional life. It provides a sense of purpose, fulfillment, and motivation that guides you towards achieving long-term goals. Finding your ‘why’ can be a challenging process, and it’s not always clear at first. However, it’s essential to trust the process, reflect on your experiences, and unpack any lessons or deeper meanings that may lead you to your ‘why.’

Practical tips for finding your “why”

Gaining clarity on your purpose and values through reflection exercises and self-exploration is an important step towards living a purposeful life. Consider reflecting on your passions, strengths, and values to uncover your “why.”

Consider questions such as:
-What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
-What are your natural talents?
-What issues or causes do you feel strongly about?
-What are your proudest achievements?

These insights can help you define your purpose and guide you towards meaningful goals. For more detailed guidance, you can refer to my previous blog article on ‘The Power of Personal Branding: Unlocking Your Full Potential and Finding Your Passion‘.

Overcoming Obstacles to Finding Your “Why”

While finding your “why” can be an exhilarating journey of self-discovery, it’s not always smooth sailing. There are common roadblocks that can get in the way, such as fear, self-doubt, and external pressures. These obstacles can be frustrating and overwhelming, but it’s important not to let them derail you from your path. Here lets explore some of the most common roadblocks and offer advice on how to overcome them so that you can stay on track towards discovering your “why.”

Fear can be a powerful barrier to finding your “why.” You may be afraid of taking risks, afraid of failure, or afraid of the unknown. To overcome fear, it’s important to acknowledge it and confront it head-on. This may involve taking small steps outside of your comfort zone, seeking support from friends and family, or seeking professional help if necessary.

Self-doubt can be a major obstacle to finding your “why.” You may doubt your own abilities or feel like you’re not good enough. To overcome self-doubt, it’s important to practice self-compassion and remind yourself of your strengths and accomplishments. Surrounding yourself with positive and supportive people can also help.

External pressures:
External pressures, such as societal expectations, family expectations, or financial pressures, can make it difficult to focus on finding your “why.” To overcome external pressures, it’s important to prioritise your own needs and values. This may involve setting boundaries with others, saying no to commitments that don’t align with your goals, or seeking support from a therapist or coach.

My Personal Experience

Discovering my ‘why’ has had a profound impact on both my personal and professional life. Initially, I was seeking new opportunities in my work that would bring back the spark and joy, but it soon became about finding work that gave me a sense of worth and fulfillment, and the opportunity to help fellow solopreneurs on their business journey. As I delved deeper, my goal shifted towards finding fulfillment in work without sacrificing time with my family and personal well-being. Ultimately, it led me to redefine my purpose in life as a blend of work, helping others achieve their goals, and enjoying a rich life with the people I love.

How to live your “why” everyday.

Living your “why” every day can be challenging, especially when you are facing daily demands and distractions. However, staying connected to your purpose is crucial to maintain your motivation and fulfillment in life. To achieve this, it’s important to set clear intentions and goals that align with your “why.”

Start by incorporating your values and passions into your daily routine, such as spending time on activities that bring you joy, connecting with like-minded people, and practicing self-care. It’s also helpful to regularly reflect on your progress and make adjustments to your routine as needed. Remember, living your “why” is a journey, not a destination, and it requires continuous effort and commitment. But the rewards of living a purposeful life are immeasurable.

Discovering your “why” can be a challenging but rewarding journey towards living a more purposeful life. By reflecting on your values, passions, and strengths, and overcoming obstacles, you can gain clarity on your purpose and live your “why” every day with continuous effort and commitment.
