For years I hear people saying how important finding your 'why' is. What is your powerful why? You have to know your why. I hear people saying things to the effect of 'change the world' or 'create a revolution of love'. Why do you do what you do? Why are you on your current path? That's all so inspiring… but it's not what wakes me up in the morning. I have never known my 'why'...
Or perhaps I have but it's really hard for me to accept, because it pushes on the "I'm selfish" edge. What I found is that when I think of the 'save the world' or 'change people's lives' type of why, I think to myself that that is a RESULT, a natural outcome that occurs only when I show up from a place of expansion.
So my why isn't about anything or anyone else. My why isn't one that's going to be politically correct in the way I think it works.
My Why? What wakes me up in the morning and drives me to the core? The one that scares me to admit?
My purpose is to become the most expansive, enlightened version of ME that I can possibly become in this lifetime. To spend every waking moment consciously opening up my soul and merging it with my whole self.
THIS… "We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others." -Marianne Williamson
My why is ME
and I am on a mission from God
I don't know what it looks like or how it will show up, but if I focus on me and my own expansion, I'll create ripples I didn't know were possible, ones I may have missed if I pigeon-holed myself into a why that wasn't complete for me.
So yeah, I coach because I can only lead people down a path I am willing to walk first. Coaching compels me to constantly stretch and grow. It challenges me to focus each day on my powerful 'why'. Coaching and changing lives is the RESULT of my personal journey and other peoples' transformation is facilitated by a simple a mirror of what I create for myself.
What is your "WHY"?
