Find Your Why!

By Nishall Garala

AS many of you may know, I do like my inspirational quotes; one of my favourite quotes is, “The two most important days of your life are the day you were born, and the day you find out why” by Mark Twain. This quote is profound and inspires me to continue to help others; this is because the quote itself, in my opinion, says ‘you were born to bless the lives of others, and to make a positive contribution.’

Finding your “why” in life is very important, as it can create a sense of meaning in your life, and give you a cause to fight for. Not only this, but knowing your “why” allows you to have a much greater impact on the world, you will feel better about yourself as well as giving you a clearer sense of who you are. Finding your “why” also has many health benefits, which means when you’re making your contribution, you are also actually in essence looking after your body and mind.

I know finding your “why” isn’t always easy, sometimes it can take years. I certainly feel like I’m on the right tracks to finding it, but I’m still very far off. Although, I know a lot of people who have found their true calling in life, which is why I understand your “why” can be found anywhere; for example, seeing a gap in an industry you may be working in, or wanting to help someone or a group of people either in this country or abroad, or even somewhere completely different.

With this being said, one can only find their “why” when they put themselves out there, either physically or even virtually. There are a lot of things you can do to help positively contribute to society, but you must find something that you’re passionate about as this will be your driving force. So, to assist you to discover your “why”, I have come up with some tips below that could help you. Of course, these tips won’t put your “why” in front of you, but it will guide you to it.

My tips for finding your “why” are:

  • Identify the things you can do to make other people’s lives better.
  • Think back to the activities you did that made you forget about the passage of time.
  • Recall what you liked to do when you were a kid.
  • Think about the things that you are willing to do even if you look like a fool.
  • Observe what people ask of you when they come to you for help.
  • Imagine what you would be doing if you learned that you only had a year left to live.
  • Enumerate the things for which you would be willing to go the extra mile.
  • If you were given the chance to teach others (e.g., young people), what would you teach them?
  • What task at work would you do for free if you didn’t need to have a salary?
  • What’s usually the reason why people thank you?
  • If you were given the chance to do something that you love and not worry about the wage or salary, what would it be?
  • What was your happiest memory of your childhood?

Hopefully, the tips I’ve written above on discovering your “why” can help you identify your own purpose and implement it in all areas of your life.

You need to look within, discover the things that you are passionate about, and pursue them—regardless of other people’s doubts or the setbacks you’ll meet. Your own purpose will point the way to your success.

Good luck, and if you want more guidance in finding your “why” then don’t hesitate to reach out to via my social media platforms.
