When faced with doing something that scares you, whether that be public speaking, running a marathon, starting a new venture, etc, you need to summon courage.
One way to help motivate you, is to make a list of your “why” or your reason for doing what you want to do.
What is your why? Your “why” is/are the reasons that you get up each morning and live your life. They are your children, your partner, your goals, your hopes and your dreams. When there is something that you don’t want to do out of fear or procrastination, you can remember what is important for you in your life.
This week, there were some phone calls that I was putting off making. What helped me to make them was to remember my children. One of my whys is to be a role model for them. If I did not lead by example and make those calls, how could I ask them to do something they didn’t want to do.
After reading my why’s and comparing what I had to do, I was able to easily finish my work.
When creating your ‘why’, remember to dream big. Maybe you are trying to quit smoking. Your why could be to live long enough to see your kids graduate. If you need to make a presentation at work, remember that your work pays you which allows you to go on vacations. Know why you are doing what you are doing.
