How important is knowing your "why" in the world? Introspective

Real Estate Agent with Re/Max Haven Realty 2016003500

Everything that is important to me, I need to define my why for why I do what I do and why it's important to me. Without knowing your "why" you do not know your purpose or have a belief that inspires you enough to continue when it gets tough to.  At times it is unclear what your purpose is because you limit yourself with what you think the expectation should be apposed to what you actually feel it should be.  In order to find true purpose you need to feel it and not think it.     Everyday you make a choice in how you are going to show up in this world; at work, at home, your job, and life.  What better way to show up in the world then by waking up and understanding your true why,  proceeding with true feelings and sensations.  Life doesn't get any better than the sensation of feeling you're living your truth and being real in living.

Understanding my why for getting up early in the morning to exercise at 5:30am before starting my day as a Realtor, especially when it's dark and frigid makes the process for me ongoing and purposeful.

My Why:  

1.  I feel healthier.

2. I am better equipped to handle stress.

3. I have more energy throughout my day.

4. I sleep better at night. 

5. I am more creative and more productive.

6. I am liberated and feel empowered.

7. My relationships are positive and healthier. 

8. It makes me better in all that I do in the world.
