The Importance Of Defining Your Why

For years, one of the self development catch phrases and questions has been “What’s Your Why?”. In every book you read, every course you take, and every speaker you watch, they all ask this one question, and for many of us, we still have not established our deep rooted “Why” when it comes to life, careers, and and overall being. I have repeatedly pondered this exact question, and on many occasions, have attempted to answer this seemingly simple question for myself, but there always appeared to be something missing.

It wasn’t until recently that I was able to truly write a solid, deep rooted, “Why” statement of my own. Recently, my wife and I went to a Dean Graziosi event and we each received a copy of his amazing book “Millionaire Success Habits”. I began reading the book as soon as we got home from the event and quickly finished the book. In his book, Dean describes a great technique for determining your why, and gives his own example. As I read through the description of his “Why” and how he was able to determine it, I could feel the emotion in every letter written on the pages. While reading his transformation and uncovering of his true “Why”, I found myself following along in my own transformation and uncovering. As soon as I was done with that section of the book, I closed it, pulled out my laptop, and began laying out the statement that describes the deep rooted “Why” that I had uncovered while reading, which goes like this…

My “WHY” is to give my wife the choice to work when and where she wants to, not because she has to, but because she chooses to. I also want to be the best example of success to my son, by taking care of my family financially, emotionally, and spiritually, while being a positive example to him of caring for those around me. Giving my son the choice to be whatever he wants to is key to that success, as I do not want him to live through the struggle that my family endured through my childhood. In the end, I want to build a family, a life, and a career that will leave a lasting legacy. I don’t want to just leave a legacy, I want to live a legacy.  

You see, I had previously begun using the tag line “Don’t Leave A Legacy, Live A Legacy” in July of this year. You can read that article here. Though I had it pictured in my mind what that statement meant, I really did not know the true meaning of the tag line that I had adopted. That is until I dug deeper, and found the heartfelt meaning of my “Why”. In order to leave a legacy for my wife, son, and future children, I have to first live that legacy through my actions each day, while passing down the characteristics of that legacy.  My “Why” is for my wife, my “Why” is for my son, my “Why” is for my future children, and the “Why” is for myself, all wrapped into the legacy that I am able to live, and furthermore, leave.

Once you are able to determine, and define your true “Why”, you can start to put together the action plan needed to fulfill your calling, as well as have the ambition to push forward when times get tough, which there is no doubt they will get tough. If you have not yet found your true “Why”, take the time now to determine it. Once you do, you will truly understand the importance of defining your why.

  29. If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

  30. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  31. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  33. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  34. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  38. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  39. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  40. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

  51. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  82. Sorry for the huge review, but I’m really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.

  83. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  84. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  85. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  86. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  88. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
