Do you ever have those day when the first thing that you ask yourself upon waking is why do I have to get up? Then why do I have to go to work? Why do I have to eat right? Why do I have to do my workout? Why do I have to pay my bills? Why do I have to make my prospecting calls? Why do I have to pay my taxes?
If you noticed the key part of all those questions is “have to”. If this is how you are approaching life then you are looking at it the wrong way. We live in a free society, we have the power to “choose” to do whatever we want to. However we must also pay the price if it does not help us or the larger society as a whole.
It’s not your fault really as we have been conditioned to believe that “How” was more important than “Why”. This is why there are so many seminar’s, personal development programs and books pitching the latest how to lose 30 pounds, become a real estate mogul or sell your way to the top. Once you have a strong enough “Why” the “How’s” will just show up. Here are just a few ways to reframe your why’s.
- Why do I have to get up to, I choose to as the early morning is the best part of the day and I am excited about what the new day will bring.
- Why do I have to eat right & exercise, I choose to do these things as heart disease and cancer run in my family so by doing my part they don’t have to run with me.
- Why do I have go to work, pay my bills or taxes or make my calls, I want a better life for my kids, I want to take the nice vacations and I know that nobody can serve my clients as well as I can.
Today I am thankful for the fact that I came up with the right answers to my why’s today, that even though I didn’t want to do my run I knew I would feel better when it was done and that almost anything is possible with a strong enough why.
“He who has a why to live for can bear almost any how.”
― Friedrich Nietzsche
