Finding Your Personal WHY

Everyone has a WHY. Your WHY is the purpose, cause or belief that inspires us. Knowing your WHY gives you a filter to make choices, at work and home, that will help you find greater fulfillment in all that you do. It is your reason for getting up in the morning. It is what motivates you to action. It is what keeps you focused every day. No one has the power to take your purpose from you.

That holds us back? I am not smart enough, not funny enough, not pretty enough. The stories you tell yourself are creating the self-fulfilling prophecies that have become a repeating pattern. It's time to change your story.

Leaving a Legacy
