Welcome to 2014.We made it.
My first book in 2014 is a book By Simon Sinek ” Start With Why’. Simon is also known for one of the most popular TED Talks, ‘How Leaders Inspire Action!. You can watch below.
Simon tells stories in his book about how The Wright Brothers invented the the airplane, how Apple Computer inspired a revolution in the personal computer business and how Martin Luther King Jr. inspired change in generations of Americans. All because they started with ‘WHY’.
This got me thinking of how to start the year in the most inspiring way possible by starting with why. There is so much talk about having new year resolution and setting goals to achieve for the year. It helps first to understand your why and connect every goals and resolution to it than have a goal in vacuum.
So the big question is, what is your why? How will you make sure your goals for this year connects with your why? More importantly, can you identify the why of every goal you have set? Why do you want it?If you don’t know why you want it, maybe you don’t really want it.As this Eric Thomas’ quote lays it out perfectly. “When you want to succeed as bad as you want to BREATHE, then you will be successful.”
Welcome to 2014.
As an Aside,
I love challenges. I just entered a challenge with a friend to read a 100 books this year. We are also blogging about it. I will keep you updated on this.
