It’s a question we all should ask ourselves.
What’s our WHY?
Our WHY for…
Certainly what we do in our 9-5.
But it’s much deeper than that.
It’s ideally a reflection of WHO we are flowing into WHAT we do.
And when we really connect with what makes us come alive, it’s a powerful thing!
Here’s my WHY for the day…
I had the privilege of setting across the table today from a man I greatly respect.
He recently launched his Financial Advisory practice to now be independent.
A lot of the processes, systems and resources he formerly used were now on his own initiative to create and implement.
Hearing his story and helping him formulate what was important to him was rewarding.
We talked about the various goals he has for his clients, his business and even his family.
With his permission, we also closed out our meeting by inviting the Lord into the planning and implementation of the entire process to help him achieve his goals- a GREAT strategy for success!
The “work” of helping people achieve true and lasting success is in essence an opportunity to provide COMFORT (which can be thought of a number of ways) – directly imparted into the lives of others.
It’s a NEW way of doing business that will never go out of style, and it makes a profound personal impact that touches countless lives.
Yes, we are absolutely after REAL and TANGIBLE business results, but that can’t be the only end result in mind.
To succeed publicly while failing privately is to fail completely.
To succeed privately while failing publicly is to still fail – especially in a business sense.
It takes an equal focus on all the facets of our life to achieve true and lasting success.
That’s why a wholistic focus of serving people personally and professionally is so important.
This process is a perfect example of sharing the COMFORT inside us.
So grateful to be part of a new way of achieving business results that has a lasting and transformative result.
Today, this was my WHY:
2 Corinthians 1:3-4 (NIV)
3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.
“Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile.” – Albert Einstein
