Why – Part I: Why DO you?

Why Part I

This is part one of a two-part mini series I’m running this week & next. My goal for this mini series is to really challenge you to think about who you are, what you’re doing, how you’re doing it…and why.

Not all of the questions will apply to you (if they do, you might need to seek counseling, my friend). However, I’m willing to bet at least one of them will make your heart instantly beat faster. You need to answer THAT question. Hearts are rarely wrong about these things.


Why do you procrastinate?

Why do you sit on the sidelines so much?

Why do you keep your amazing thoughts to yourself?

Why do you believe critics?

Why do you still drive the same route to work every day?

Why do you hold on to pain, hurt, and anger so long?

Why do you hold on to your “stuff” too long?

Why do you put everything and everybody ahead of your own health & wellbeing?

Why do you spend so much time with people who don’t inspire and motivate you?

Why do you spend so much time wishing (instead of working) for what you want?

Why do you sleep so little?

Why do you look at your phone so much?

Why do you look at your computer so much?

Why do you look at your iPad so much?

Why do you look at your TV so much?

Why do you have so many darn electronics?

Why do you think you don’t have your act together?

Why do you dread Mondays?

Why do you still have a job that doesn’t light you up?

Why do you spend so much time in the past?

Why do you live as if “tomorrow” is a real thing?

Why do you judge your success against an unrealistic ideal?

Why do you beat yourself up so much when you fail?

Why do you learn from your mistakes, but not your successes?

Why do you read a list of questions like these and think none of them applies to you?
