Season 2020 - Episode 2 Now Your "What"
In our first episode of Season 2020 I discussed what it means to find your purpose, North Star, or why. There are many terms used by many different social influencers out there, so you can decipher for yourself which term you most prefer.
When you understand your purpose for doing what you do, it'll make doing your What so much more rewarding for you. In my example, my purpose is to propel athletes into leaving their positive mark on the world. I am able to guide and mentor athletes by meeting them at speaking engagements, via social media (on-line coaching), and in person coaching.
My what is the coaching itself! It is one of the most rewarding experiences I get to enjoy everyday. I don't consider coaching a job. It is a passion of mine that I have had for a very long time. In some cases, the two hours I spend coaching my collegiate and high school athletes is the best part of my day (on-top of the time I get to spend with my family at home).
Now the question is up to you, how does your passion and why fuel your what? If those two elements don't line up, what can you do about that? In this episode I provide some tips and suggestions for you that are easily transferable to other parts of your life besides just coaching and working with high school, collegiate, and post-collegiate athletes.
