Why do you do what you do?
I mean it.
What goal or dream or higher purpose drives you?
What makes you work hard even when no one’s looking?
What makes you work ten minutes longer when you could have left ten minutes earlier?
Or do you not even know? (It’s okay if you don’t.)
There’s a why in all of us
Everyone has a why — that driving force that gets us up and gets us moving forward in a positive direction every day.
To those who might say they don’t have one, that nothing motivates them, that they have no goals … I say you just have to find it. And I’d love to help you, in part by sharing my journey here at Primility, because I can relate (there have been times I’ve struggled to find my why too).
To you I say what I’ve said to myself: find the pride to decide you’re worth it, and have the humility to realize you need it.
Even if you have to “fake it until you make it,” take your best guess at what your why might be, let it guide you, and though it may not sustain forever, it just might lead you to the why that will.
Find your why … then use it to channel your motivation.

Like this graphic? Join the mindset at Jared Easley for his podcast Starve the Doubts (which you should subscribe to). His co-host for my interview was Laura Elgueta, who I have had the good pleasure of becoming acquainted with online in recent weeks.
Soon after the interview, she tweeted out the graphic above. The quote is from my interview on Starve the Doubts, when they asked me at the end what advice I might like to offer up. I can’t think of any better advice than that.
My thanks again to Laura for making the graphic. People like her are an inspiration for anyone who creates content online — definitely one of my whys.
