The power of WHY, and how it fuels your passion

Why do you want to be productive in the first place?

The power of personal productivity lays in answer to this question!

We can also call it the power of your personal WHY. People are driven by their reasons more than anything else. It is the passion that fuels many businesses and individuals to make great things in life. Not everyone can achieve this level of motivation, for it requires you to change yourself in such a way that you are always connected with your goals and dreams.

You have to put YOU in your personal productivity.

Your WHY will give you strength, will power, self-discipline and motivation to persevere trough the hardest of times, until you reach your desired state of mind.

As I go through life, I've seen the importance of the mind discipline and the way it controls action. But the reason why your mind starts thinking unilaterally is because you are giving it power trough your most compelling reasons for it to take action. We want to hack “pain pleasure” principle in such a way that you are going to feel more pain if you don't act upon your dreams.

Between pleasure and pain, pain is the bigger motivator! Your dreams can only guide you so far. My biggest motivation is my dad. I've seen him struggle his entire life in the pharmaceutical industry, but I don't see him overly happy about his position right now. He spent the most of his life building someone else's dream. Fear of repeating the same mistake keeps moving me forward.

The power of why is hidden in alignment of your life. When your goals and actions and goals work as a coherent system, you are moving towards your dreams.

Stay tuned because the mini tutorial on how to leverage your WHY to gain ultimate motivation is coming up!

    You are right when you say that fear can act as a more intense mediator between us and our goals, than, as you exemplify, passion. For me though it works in the way that I find my fear of not living up to fulfill my dream, and see my passion as reality, to be motivating to a great extent.
    It’s the individual WHY that you speak of, that we all must strive to find within ourselves, thus moving through life consciously and intentionally.

      Just imagine living with intention for every moment of your life… It’s truly empowering sense of self realization and self actualization. It transcends self development, it brings you on a higher plane of self.

      You achieve this by actually doing things that frighten you. It is freedom in it’s purest form.

    This is great work. And, I’m looking forward to reading more. When I read Start with Why and Career Distinction, I learned to appreciate the interplay between one’s “why” and one’s passion to further one’s career goals and, just as importantly, career satisfaction. Thirsty for more. Keep up the good work.
