Leading With My Why

Leading With My Why

In his TED Talk How Great Leaders Inspire Action, Simon Sinek presents the key to sharing one’s ideas in such a way that others not only understand but can relate to and take on as their own.

What is this secret? Shearing your why behind what you do.

“People don’t buy what you do, they but why you do it.”

People want to be identified with a cause or product that aligns with their beliefs. When you share your why, it allows others to take this mission and make it their own.

In my blog Leading With Your Why, I explain this concept and how it is used in the business world. In this post, I wish to shear with you my examples of why I do what I do. My hope is that by understanding the reasoning behind these areas of my life you will be able to relate to my mission and beliefs taking them on as your won. You don’t have to choose not to go to college, work in a feed store, or teach gymnastics to have the same mission as I do. These are beliefs that can be applied to every area of life.

Together we can make a far greater impact than one individual on their own.

 

The Reason Why I Chose Not To Go To College

I believe in striving for the kind of life that is capable of changing the world. This is a life measured not by a bank account summary or the opinions of others. It’s a life measured by the personal accomplishments I have achieved. It’s a life of overcoming the resistance that stands between each master and their trade. It’s a life of resting your head on the pillow each night satisfied with how you spent your hours that day.

I believe that each person has a purpose and place in the world that they are meant to impact. Life is a gift we only get once. I intend to live mine completely invested and involved, as opposed to checking my brain in at the door so that the trends and ideas of the day can live my life for me.

It is this purpose that I aim for instead of an A on a test or exam. Such a life is not given to anyone but is one that must be fought for and earned. For myself, this journey does not lead through a college compose but instead out in the real world, gaining life experience, skills, and a reputation.

College is not a bad thing or a pour choice to make, for some people. At the end of the day though, one’s work ethic, ability to produce value, and life experience will far outweigh a piece of paper and that is why I have chosen not to go to college.

 

 

 The Reason Why I am Passionate About Nut, Bolts, And Hay

 

I believe in hard work, discovering new ways to impacts one’s work, community, and the lives of others. Being attentive as to what needs to be done and knowing how to improve how things are run is what makes a great Tractor Supply member.

This store is much more than a building with products and services. It is a place for creating projects, hobbies, and livelihoods. By being apart of this industry I can be a problem solver. For that customer who walks in and is greeted with a warm welcom, I even get to be a life-changer, if only in my community.

Yet what is our country made of if not communities? And what are communities made of if not their people? Therefore, by serving the people of my community, I truly am a world changer.

You may think I’m crazy but, now you know why I am passionate about nuts, bolts, and hay.

 

 The Reason Why I Chose To Work With Children Every Day

 

I love working with children. More specifically though, I love working with children in a way that allows them to build confidence in who they are and their ability to overcome any area of life.

I have witnessed the transformation of a child in that one moment when the skill they thought was impossible suddenly becomes their own reality. A smile covers their faces from ear to ear and their eyes light up with an uncontainable excitement. It is in these moments that I get to share in their excitement, offering a high five, a pat on the back, hug or even a happy dance. These are the moments that become engraved in their minds and push them toward new unattainable goals, knowing that they can change the world.

I truly believe that the way a person overcomes the challenges in this life is by first finding a scene of pride and accomplishment within themselves. This self-confidence is what drives a person to reach for the impossible, achieve what others said could never be done, and put the needs of others before their own. This is what it takes to be a world-changer and this is why I chose to be a gymnastics coach.

Conclusion

 

Now that you understand the reasoning behind these areas of my life you can better relate to my mission and beliefs taking them on as your won. You don’t have to choose not to go to college, work in a feed store, or teach gymnastics to have the same mission as I do. These are beliefs that can be applied to every area of life.

Together we can make a far greater impact than one individual on their own.

So I have a question for you. What is your mission and Why?
