Do you know what your most underlying motivation is?
I think this is a really important question and if you find the answer sooner rather than later, you could make a lot of progress in your career and personal life.
When I was 25, someone suggested to me that I should start a business as I might be stifled in the corporate world.
This was the mid 1990s and my idea then of business was bricks and mortar. I thought that I would have to be the first in the business, be there all day to supervise staff and be there at the end of the day to lock up etc. This was not my version of life.
What I did not realise at that time was that my most underlying motivation was FREEDOM and it always has been.
To figure out your real motivation behind a goal that you have, you should be able to go several levels deep in asking yourself why do you want to achieve that particular goal. So think about a goal that you have and ask yourself why do you want to achieve that goal. When you have an answer, that yourself why is that [answer] important to you and what will it do for you if you were to achieve it. Do this several times until you cannot answer anymore and that will be your underlying motivation.
My most important freedom is really time freedom. What is yours?
I want to be there for my family and do the things I love to do without having to ask permission of anyone else. That is my idea of freedom.
As I worked to build my business to give me this freedom, I realised that it gave me some other freedoms as well.
How would you like People Freedom? To be able to choose the people you work with, no more crappy bosses and pessimistic peers!
You can get to your life goals faster if you know your underlying motivations.
