Have you noticed that when we have a strong reason for doing something, we figure out how to get it done. The HOW’s can be figured out as long as the WHY is in place.
But many a times we focus more on the HOW’s – How do I do this? How can I do that? How many steps are involved? How many days will this take? While these questions are relevant, they are of secondary importance. The primary question that we need to ask ourselves is WHY do we want to do it?
This is especially important for the things that have a significant impact on our lives, like the decisions regarding our field of education, choice of career etc. If we do not have a strong reason for the above decisions, we will end up with a lot of self-doubt and frustration as we navigate through the daunting number of ‘hows’ that will inevitably come along with these decisions. A strong reason will keep us focused on the end result. It will also give us the resilience to stay the course when the going gets tough.
I believe that the same goes for being successful at anything in life. If we don’t have a reason to succeed, we will always find a reason to give up. Don’t you think?
