Key idea 1 of 7

Act more intentionally and stick to your goals by identifying what truly motivates you.

Could you say, truthfully, that you know what you want from life? 

If not, you’re not alone. Most people struggle with this question. They have no trouble saying what they don’t want out of life, though! They might say that they don’t want to be lonely or poor, for instance. But when it comes to what they do want, they’re stumped.

This is a problem if you want to be successful in life. How can you be expected to make your desires a reality if you don’t even know what they are? 

The key message here is: Act more intentionally and stick to your goals by identifying what truly motivates you.

If you were to start a long car journey without knowing your destination, what do you imagine would happen? Well, you’d likely end up lost and out of gas.

Similarly, if you go through life aimlessly, you won’t end up anywhere noteworthy. That’s why it’s important to occasionally take stock and remind yourself of what you’re really working toward.

In other words, you need to figure out your why. This is what drives you – what really drives you. It’s your deepest, rawest, truest desire.

Having said that, it’s not always immediately obvious what our why really is; this can take quite a bit of self-analysis to discover.

Fortunately, the author and his team have devised a technique to help expedite the process of self-discovery. This technique is called 7 Levels Deep.

Best done with a partner, the technique involves being asked a “why” question seven times. The answer you provide forms the basis for the next question. So, for example, in response to the question, “Why do you want to earn $100,000 a month?” you might say, “Because it will make me free.” The next question would then be, “Why is it important to be free?” and you might say, “So I can spend more time with my family.” Each round of questioning forces you to dig a little deeper into your motivations.

Once, during a motivational course he was giving, the author performed this exercise on a member of the audience. He was blown away by the participant’s final response. The man revealed that he’d been a drug addict when his mother passed away. Ashamed that this was the last image she’d had of him, he spent the rest of his life trying to make amends by doing good in the world. 

Whatever your why is, having a sense of what truly drives you will help refine your vision of where you want to end up.
