Getting The Best Results From Your WHY Statement

It is no easy task to identify your real purpose in life and write a compelling WHY statement that will drive you forward.  In reality this is going to take a lot of time and effort to get it right.  So when you make this kind of investment in your WHY statement you want to make sure that you get the most out of it afterwards.

In this article we will explain how you can do that.  As soon as you have your WHY statement written you can start to do these things which will help to transform your life for the better.  Don’t just write your WHY statement and then not take any action and follow through on it.  If you don’t take action then there is no point writing your WHY statement.

Use your WHY Statement to set inspiring Goals

Only a small percentage of the population actually set goals.  Some of these people choose to do this at New Year when they have been out drinking and celebrating, but have a feeling of loss or that something is missing in their lives.  We do not recommend this as it rarely works out well.  Others will set goals with a clear head but they end up going for goals that they are not totally committed to and then fail to achieve them.

You may be wondering why anyone would set themselves goals that they are not really committed to.  Well it happens a lot and sometimes this can be other people influencing us to do something that seems like a good idea at the time.

For example you may have a close friend that has decided that they want to climb Mount Everest.  They put pressure on you to do this with them.  You agree because you value their friendship but you do not really have any desire to start mountaineering.

You go to classes with your friend and soon lose interest.  Your heart is not in it like theirs is.  So what do you do?  Well you may have to dream up some credible excuse why you cannot pursue this goal with them.  Maybe lie about a physical problem that you have which prevents you from climbing mountains?

This kind of thing can be completely avoided when you have a clear and compelling WHY statement.  You will have clarity about where you want to go with your life and there will be no need for you to be influenced by others.

It will be a lot easier for you to identify and set your goals when you have a powerful WHY statement.  You will also be totally committed to achieving the goals because they are in line with your real purpose in life. It doesn’t get any better than that.

Let your WHY Statement Guide your Decision Making

Without truly knowing what your purpose in life is it will be very easy for you to make the wrong life choices.  You will be vulnerable to any temptations that come your way and to ride the wave of the “next big thing”.

Most decisions that you need to think about have consequences.  People that drift along aimlessly in life rarely consider these consequences and as a result end up living a life that they don’t want.

When you have a powerful WHY statement as a guide you will make a lot better decisions in your life. It doesn’t matter how big or small the decisions are you can use your WHY statement to guide you down the right road.

Getting The Most From Your WHY Statement

There is no doubt that any good personal WHY statement takes time and effort to create. So having made this investment in your WHY statement you will want to get the most that you can from it.

Quite rightly you took quite a long time to write and refine your WHY statement so that it was as clear, concise and powerful as it could be. So now it is time for you to reap the benefits of your new powerful WHY statement and in this article we will show you how to do that.

Motivate yourself with your WHY Statement

Inspiration alone is usually never enough to achieve your goals. There are going to be times when you are not in the right frame of mind and just cannot be bothered to take action. When you have a strong personal WHY statement you can use it to provide you with a significant motivational boost.

We strongly recommend that you have a copy of your personal WHY statement by your bedside. Every morning after you get out of bed you should read your WHY statement out loud so that it motivates you and gives you the energy that you need for the day ahead.

It is also a good idea to keep a copy of your WHY statement with you so that you can access it at any time. If you feel the need for a motivational boost at any time of day, and wherever you are, get out your WHY statement and read it again.

There is no limit to how many times you should read your WHY statement each day and be motivated by it. That is one of the main reasons that you spent all of the time and energy writing it so use it as often as you need.

Set your Goals using your WHY Statement

You are very unlikely to achieve goals that you are not truly committed to. Maybe you were persuaded by others to set certain goals in the past or you just thought that it was the right thing to do.

With a strong WHY statement you can forget about what others say and any other influencers. You know what your purpose in life is now and you have clearly defined this in your WHY statement. This clarity is essential for you to set goals that you are inspired by and truly committed to.

You are aware of the contribution that you want to make to the world and the impact that you want to have. So use this to set goals that will move you forward with both of these. Create your goals and plans around your personal WHY statement and you will be totally driven to achieve them.

Make Decisions using your WHY Statement

You should find it easier to make decisions going forward now that you have a strong and clear WHY statement. Instead of making some decisions without considering the consequences as a lot of people do, your WHY statement will guide you to make the right decisions.

Your WHY statement has provided you with direction and purpose for your life so always have it in the back of your mind when you are making decisions. Ask yourself if making a particular decision will move you closer to your life’s purpose or move you away from it.

6 Reasons Why You Need A WHY Statement

Most people do not know what their true calling in life is.  Some people just don’t care about this and are happy to be a drifter in life and just “go with the flow”.  Others do care about it but have problems with identifying their real purpose in life.  So here will show you 6 reasons why you absolutely must create a WHY statement.

1. It will provide clarity about what your purpose in life is.

If you don’t know your true life’s purpose then you will end up doing things that you really don’t want to do.  There are so many people working jobs that they hate just to pay the bills. They dread Monday mornings and always feel apprehensive on Sunday nights.  This is no way to live your life.

When you know what your true purpose is in life you can take action to achieve this.  You will have more confidence and can get a job that will align with your purpose.  You will have more energy and be motivated every day.

2. A WHY Statement Sharpens your Focus

Without the right focus in your life it is easy to set goals that you are not truly committed to. A lot of people follow their friends and other influencers in their life and end up setting the same goals as them.  We are all different and this rarely works out well.

When you identify what you really want your life to be about this clarity helps you to work out your next moves a lot more easily.  You can use your WHY statement to drive you forward each day and achieve what you really want from your life.

3. You will make the Right Decisions

Have you ever made wrong decisions in your life?  Of course you have we have all done that. When you have a strong and compelling WHY statement it will help you to make much better decisions in life.

A lot of decisions have serious consequences and if you don’t know your true purpose then you can dismiss these consequences in exchange for short term pleasure or gain.  With a good WHY statement you will assess the long term consequences and be able to make better decisions.

4. It Provides more Accountability

People that have no purpose in life tend to shy away from accountability.  They are just happy to drift along but then complain bitterly when things go against them.  It is never their fault of course and always someone else’s.

With a powerful WHY statement you will know where you are going in life and be accountable for this.  You will think things through more and only take action where it aligns with your WHY statement.  This additional accountability will make you a better person.

5. You will be Healthier and Happier

If you only want to consider one of these reasons to have a compelling WHY statement then this is the one to choose.  There is nothing more important than your health and your happiness.  When you are happy then you tend to be healthier.  If you are unhappy then your resistance is down and you can experience all kinds of health issues.

6. Your Resilience will Increase

Everyone has to face problems in their life.  For some people these problems are too difficult to handle and they become overwhelmed and stressed out.  When you have a compelling WHY statement you can see these problems as opportunities for you to grow and attain fulfillment in your life.
