What’s Your Why?

Did you know that 92 percent of people who set goals fail to achieve them? I was floored when I saw that statistic. How could so many people who start out with the best intentions fall short of their goals or flat out fail?  So I did a little reading about the 8 percent who do succeed and what sets them apart. I learned that the people who do succeed always know their why.  They always know the reason why they have the goals they do.

You might be thinking – that’s simple. I know why I want to lose weight. Or I know why I want to get in shape. It’s because I want to look good in a swimsuit. Or it’s because my doctor said I should.  Or it’s because my best friend is getting married and I’m in the wedding. Those reasons are all well and good. But the why I’m talking about is a deeper and more meaningful thing that will compel you to keep trying even when things get challenging.
