I’ll keep this pretty simple…
Because there’s really just one thing I want to get across in this post – and you already know what it is from the title.
Listen, I think this whole topic of finding your Why is deeply important, and very, very practical. That’s why I’ve written about it several times, including here. But I admit, it can get kind of old saying the same thing over and over and over… especially when it seems like everybody else in the whole world is saying it, too!
So I’m just going to come right out and say this:
Ok, I feel better now…
Moving from Theory to Practice
Take a quick inventory right now. In fact, instead of just thinking about it, go ahead and make a list. Answer the following questions and write down the answers:
How many books are on my shelf that talk about some version of finding my Why, my Purpose, or whatever they call it?
How many online articles have I read about the same topic? (And, how many of those have I bookmarked in my browser?!)
How many podcast episodes have I listened to in the last couple of years (or more) about this topic? How many different podcasts do I regularly listen to that talk about this?
You know the kind of stuff I’m talking about. Just a few of the names that come up are Tim Ferriss, Napoleon Hill, Margie Warrell, Simon Sinek, Carrie Kerpen, Tony Robbins…
Each one has so much to teach you about this – and you’ve probably sunk your teeth into several of them. So…
What are you waiting for?!!!
It’s time to move from theory… to practice. Just start doing the thing that you know you need to do, that you really want to do. It’s not that it’s too late – it’s just that… well, why would you put it off any longer?

No Guru Or Coach Will Do This for You
You can pay the best “success coach” in the world hundreds of thousands of dollars to help you “discover your Why.” It can be a six-month process, including a retreat in the Himalayas or something. Whatever floats your boat.
But when all is said and done – if you don’t do what they say, then it’s just money thrown away.
On the other hand, if you actually implement what they teach you… and allow yourself and make yourself dig deep to actually get in touch with your deepest desires and motives… you just might jump on a plane, leave the snow-covered mountains and your guru behind, and get busy! Because now you’ve got your purpose, and you don’t really even need the rest of the training.
(Or, you could buy a couple of books, talk through a few things with a friend, and accomplish the same thing for a fraction of the cost.)
Only you can make this thing happen. Not a guru, not a coach, not a friend, not “fate.” These can all help you. But only you can make it happen.
That’s It – That’s the Message
I told you this was going to be simple, folks. I’m not at all against teaching and training, not one bit. But I think we sometimes need a reminder that it’s better to put into practice just one thing that we’ve learned… than to just keep on learning, and learning, and learning…
Without doing.
Especially when it comes to personal development. So stop putting this off. Settle it. Commit to it. Determine that you WILL discover your Why – ASAP. Set a date on the calendar. (Maybe today is that date!) And just do it. Discover your Why. And live the life you’ve always wanted to.
