Finding Your ‘Why’ …… from Pause to Purpose

Finding your “why” is akin to discovering the guiding star for your life’s journey. It’s about understanding the core purpose that drives you, motivates your actions, and gives meaning to your endeavor’s.

My own ‘why’ was discovered following a severe traumatic brain injury at the age of 16 following a motorcycle accident.

After dying three times and being given a prognosis of ‘expect death or life in a vegetative state’, I exceeded expectations by walking out of the hospital within three months.  However, this was just the start of an almost soul-destroying journey.

Adjustment to a life with an acquired disability meant friends left in droves…..I was not the cool teenager I used to be. Medical experts had a very negative outlook for my future, and I was put straight on a Disability Pension when I left school.

I became very depressed….suicidal.  There were many times when I wished I had not survived my motorcycle accident.  I had to find my ‘why’.

My ‘why’ has driven me to prove those Doctors wrong multiple times over!  My ‘why’ is to encourage the power of HOPE through the transformational power of brain power strategies to inspire individuals to overcome limiting beliefs and reach their true potential.

Here are a few more reasons why finding your “why” is crucial:

  1. Direction and Focus: Knowing your “why” provides a clear direction for your life. It helps you understand where you want to go and what you want to achieve, allowing you to focus your efforts on what truly matters to you.
  2. Motivation and Persistence: When challenges arise, and obstacles seem insurmountable, your “why” serves as a powerful source of motivation. It reminds you of the reasons behind your actions, helping you to persevere through tough times.
  3. Personal Fulfillment: Pursuing your “why” leads to a sense of fulfillment and satisfaction. When your actions align with your purpose, you experience a sense of harmony and completeness, knowing that you’re living a life true to yourself.
  4. Improved Decision-Making: With a clear understanding of your “why,” making decisions becomes easier. You can evaluate options based on how well they align with your purpose, leading to choices that are more consistent and fulfilling.
  5. Inspiration to Others: Living your “why” can inspire and positively influence those around you. By pursuing your passions and living a purpose-driven life, you can motivate others to explore and find their own “whys.”

In essence, finding your “why” is not just about personal success; it’s about leading a life that is rich in meaning and satisfaction. It’s the foundation upon which you can build a legacy of impact and inspiration.
