Why Are You Here... Watch the below and then read my blog.

Why Are You Here?

In a world that often prioritizes action and results, it’s easy to get caught up in the "what" of your daily routine. But have you ever paused to consider the "why"? Understanding the difference between what you do and why you do it can be a game-changer for self-improvement enthusiasts and entrepreneurs alike.

The Importance of Knowing Your "Why"

Knowing your "why" goes beyond just setting goals or achieving milestones. It’s about digging deeper into your motivations and passions. Your "why" serves as a compass, guiding you through the ups and downs of your personal and professional life.

Simon Sinek, in his famous TED Talk, emphasized that "People don’t buy what you do; they buy why you do it." This principle is not just applicable to marketing or business but also to personal growth.

The Difference Between "What" and "Why"

What You Do

The "what" is straightforward. It's your daily actions, tasks, and responsibilities. For many entrepreneurs, the "what" could be running a business, managing a team, or developing a product. For self-improvement enthusiasts, it might involve reading books, attending seminars, or practicing mindfulness.

Why You Do It

The "why" is more profound. It’s the reason behind your actions. It’s the driving force that fuels your passion and keeps you going, even when the going gets tough. Your "why" could be anything from wanting to make a positive impact on your community, achieving financial freedom, or finding personal fulfillment.

Finding Your "Why"

Here are some steps to help you uncover your "why":

  1. Self-Reflection:

   Take time to reflect on your life and career. Ask yourself questions like, "What makes me happy?", "What am I passionate about?", and "What do I want to achieve?"

  1. Identify Your Values:

   Your values are core beliefs that guide your actions. Determine what matters most to you, whether it's integrity, creativity, or helping others.

  1. Look at Your Past:

   Reflect on past experiences that have shaped who you are today. What lessons have you learned? What achievements are you proud of?

  1. Set Meaningful Goals:

Align your goals with your "why". This ensures that you're not just chasing success but also finding fulfillment in what you do.

Applying Your "Why"

Once you've identified your "why", it's time to integrate it into your daily life:

  • In Business:

Entrepreneurs can use their "why" to inspire their teams, attract loyal customers, and make strategic decisions that align with their core values.

  • In Personal Growth:

Self-improvement enthusiasts can use their "why" to stay motivated, overcome challenges, and stay committed to their personal development journey.


Understanding why you do what you do is a powerful tool for both personal and professional growth. It provides clarity, direction, and a sense of purpose that can make all the difference in your life.

Take a moment today to ask yourself, "Why am I here?" The answer may just change your life.
