List of Reasons

What is your list of reasons for doing what you do? What is it you are trying to accomplish? What are the personal trials your trying to win? Without a list of reasons, it really doesn’t matter what you are trying to accomplish because you probably won’t achieve it. That’s because when it gets tough, and it will get tough, you will be inclined to give up too easily. That’s true whether you are trying to quit smoking, lose weight, or build a business. You need to have a strong list of reasons to keep motivated when you go through the rough times. Your list of reasons is also called you “why.”

For me, it is all about financial freedom. As I’ve shared before, it’s not about retirement, because I don’t see at this point in my life any reason to retire. It’s about doing what I want to do, when I want to do it, and not worrying about the cost. My partial list of reasons include my kids, my mom, my extended family, and various ministries and needs. These provide the motivation to make sure it happens. I have been a top producer and business owner and yet with the economy changing, some of the dreams I had started to fade. It wasn’t until one of my employees came to me with a business opportunity that I started to get excited again about becoming financially free. Now after two and a half years, the dream is alive and well.

Even with a strong “why” and a list of reasons for working so hard, there were many days I questioned if it was worth it. There were many days I wanted to quit. There were many days I started to doubt myself whether I made the right decision. Without a strong drive  and a list of reasons to complete the journey and live out my dreams, it would have been easy to just quit or give up. I see so many people do that because they lose their vision and forget about their list of reasons why.

Don’t give up on your dreams. Write your list of reasons down and review them every chance you get. Be specific and clear. If you find yourself slipping, reread your list of reasons. It is worth it even though sometimes you will wonder. Don’t let others steal your dreams. You can do it!!!

Share  your list of reasons why in this blog.

Have an awesome day.
