(which I recognize is kind of a strange question)
Why do you get up in the morning? Why do you go through the effort?
What’s the point?
For some of us it may be because we love taking care of our family. …. getting out of bed to make sure the kids have a healthy lunch and get to school on time is the best part of your day and you are proud to play that role in their life.
For some of us it may be because our jobs are incredibly rewarding, or fun even! … being a small business accountant really allows you to help out people in a very practical way and you can’t wait to get to the office every day.
But for some of us, maybe we just get out of bed because we have to make money to pay for the mortgage…. but if you had a choice, you would gladly stay in bed with a book all day. At least until 6p when your friends get home from work and you all can hang out laughing and eating and enjoy being together.
There’s a reason I have an Associate’s degree in 1 major and a Bachelor’s degree in another major. There’s a reason when I was younger I had about 14 different professions I wanted to be “when I grow up”. There’s a reason my ‘day job’ is without-a-doubt the worst part of my life right now (and it’s not even that bad).
I’ve been trying to figure out why I want to get out of bed every day … I love my family, I love my life and I love the possibilities every day brings.
I just need to continue to focus on my GREAT WORK… my Personal Legend. I believe that the work that I’m doing is worthwhile (and I also believe that eventually I will be rewarded with not having to work at the ‘day job’ to pay the bills).
My online workshop – Onward and Upward – will work through some of these things. We’ll talk about finding our passions and really focusing on why we were put on this earth – our reason to get out of bed every morning. This is something each person needs to wrestle with on their own, but being a part of a community all working toward the same thing can really aide in your thinking.
Registration for Onward and Upward is now open – with sessions starting October 3!
