Find your why is an inspiring book that is written by the motivational and inspirational speaker Simon Sinek .This book guides one for discovering the purpose of life and how to find your why with hope and determination. Why means the reason of one’s life and one’s existence. The book is the companion to start with why and it is a self-help book that was published in 2017. It is a practical guide for discovering purpose of life and team. Everybody in this world has why but unfortunately, due to lack of self-help, they have been failed to bring their why into reality. Life is meaningless without purpose and why. Find your why is present for the pursuit of one’s dreams into reality.
“The mystery of human existence lies not in just staying alive, but in finding something to live for.”
Life with no purpose and goals is incomplete. It is useless to not have why in life and finding your why is a big obstacle, most of the people and organizations are failed to achieve it. It is one of the most important aspects of one’s life. Without knowing the purpose of your life, it can create several issues for a person for finding his/her why. Everyone has potentialities, capabilities and talents but they do not know how to find it out. Due to lack of self-discipline, commitment and lack of awareness, they lead themselves towards destruction and failure. Without knowing your purpose, you will be unclear about what you want in life. You will be victims of depression, anxiety and forget the realities of life. You will waste the time, energy, money, relations and so on.
“It is not that we have so little time but that we lose so much. The life we receive is not short but we make it so; we are not ill provided but use what we have wastefully.”
“The why is an origin story. Who we are is the sum total of all the experiences, we have had growing up-to-date the lessons we learned, the teachers we had and things we did. In order to help your companion discover their why, you will need to listen to stories from their past. Their WHY represents who they are at their natural best and will be revealed through specific stories and experiences that affected their life and shaped who they are?”
Building good relationship plays variety of significant roles for finding the why. An organization without support of its employees and customers does not succeed at all. Because they are representatives of the organization. If a leader does not have a friendly and good relationship with them then the organizations cannot produce good qualities of products and cannot achieve what they want. Without building a strong relationship with the family, employees, colleagues and leaders, it is impossible to lead one’s why into reality. Because they are one’s companions and they will support one in hardships, sorrows and pains. They share their opinions and encourage for finding your why. They guide you when you are in wrong direction.
“Happiness comes from what we do. Fulfillment comes from why we do it.”
“How’s” are the actions which bring why into life. They are the key factors of finding your why. Understanding your HOWs is one of the greatest attitudes for avoiding and making yourself away from destruction and failures.
“HOWs are not aspirational, they do not express who we want to be. They express the manner in which we actually tackle the things, we actually do when we are at our best. They are the actions, we can choose to take on daily basis to help ensure that we are creating the type of environment in which we thrive.”
David is one of the characters in this book and his why is to propel. His HOWs are:
- See the big picture
- Take responsibility
- Explore alternative perspectives
- Tie a bow on it. (If you start something, finish it)
- Learn from every experience
It can create new opportunities for one and makes one aware about what is happening around one’s why. If one is facing tough circumstances, one can use your HOWs to know the strengths and weaknesses. It brings imbalances and makes you hopeful for your decisions and actions.
“Find something positive in every situation and in every person.”
FIND YOUR WHY is really an outstanding book that encouraged me to follow my WHY and WHY of my team. This book helps every individual for discovering the purpose of his/her life. I recommend every individual to read this book and find Your Why.
