Finding Your Why

Hello guys and welcome back to ShowMe.Fit. My name is Dan and I’m the founder of the Accountability Academy. Today I want to talk about knowing and understanding what your why is. I know exactly what you’re thinking, “knowing your why” sounds very, very cliche and very, very cheesy, very much something that’s kind of been bastardised. Everyone’s like “You’ve got to know you why and understand why you’re doing what you’re doing.” But I want to drive a little bit deeper today and really kind of dig into the topic of why you are here. 

  • Why are you on this platform today? 
  • Why do you want to create change in your life? 
  • Why do you want to be a better version of yourself? 

We all have our own why that’s completely unique to us and it’s not very anyone else to know but we need to know it to continue our journey. Now the reality is guys, whenever we start anything, whether you’re starting a new business, whether you’re starting a health and fitness journey, trying to eat healthier, trying to exercise more, stay healthier and level up in your life, it’s going to get hard. It’s going to be very, very difficult to stay consistent all the time and that’s where knowing you’re why comes in handy for you. For example, it might be because you love your partner and you want to be a better boyfriend, girlfriend, husband, wife. It might be that you want to be there for your kids and live later in life and be able to play with them and exercise with them and train with them. It might be that you see your friends and they might be in ill health and you look at that and go, “no, not for me”. Your why is completely unique to you and it’s up to you to understand what your why is but it’s very, very important. Your why is always there to come back to and reflect on why you have started this journey. Ask yourself:

  • Why am I doing the training? 
  • Why am I tracking my food?
  • Why am I eating healthier?
  • Why am I doing the things that aren’t necessarily easy?
  • Why am I taking the less easy route?

The reality is guys, I tell this to all of our clients, if you always take the easy route that’s going to give you issues down the line. The path of most comfort typically leads to issues down the line. So that’s why you’re here today; to make a change in your life. Knowing your why is going to keep you on track to achieving those goals. Knowing your why is really, really important and I tell everyone have it on a notepad, have is somewhere where you can see it. Like I said it, might be your kids, your partner, it might be your family, you might see your mum, your dad or whoever it is, they may be in ill health and you look at that and go, “no, I need something different in my life. I want to be different. I want to be an example. I want to be there for my kids, so I can live longer and live healthily and be there for them later in life.” Whatever your why is make sure it is unique to you and make sure it’s there for you to go back to when you need it, because guys, this journey isn’t easy. There’s going to be obstacles, there’s going to be trials and tribulations the whole way through and knowing why you started is extremely, extremely important for you to get to the finish line.

Like I say guys, know what your why is… it doesn’t have to be cheesy, it just has to be unique to you, so that you can go back to it and look to it when you need it. So, I’m Dan, if you need any help, please let us know, I’ll see you soon, bye guys .
