I’ve started a stopped a number of things quite a few times over the last few years.
Take this blog for example.
I started it many years ago, tried to build followers and when it got hard, I abandoned it. Why?
Was my heart not in it?
Was I forcing it?
None of the above.
It wasn’t until recently that I was encouraged to dissect my many undone intentions and, after a long conversation with a business partner, I was left with this.
I haven’t yet fully found and accepted my why.
This is important.
I’m trying to build something meaningful here…something meant to impact the lives of many. But I can’t impact if I can’t inspire and I can’t inspire if I don’t know why I want to inspire.
Who do I want to inspire?
What do I want them to inspire them to do?
The answer all lies with finding my “why.”
So at the suggestion of my business partner, I ran out yesterday and picked up this book. I’m sure I’m probably the last human to not have read this from cover to cover. (**cue laugh**)
I deliberately purchased the book. I wanted to feel the pages in my hand. I wanted my eyes to move across the words as my mind takes them in. Reading is intentional while listening (for me) can be distracted. I don’t want to miss a morsel of this book.
Stay tuned as I share my thoughts on each chapter as I read and digest them. I have a long flight coming up on Sunday so that seems like the perfect opportunity to dive in, finish and finally come to terms with my why.
