Follow Up: I have to admit that I was disappointed by the lack of response. I know that we are all busy with life, but if we can’t take a few minutes to share WHY we do what we do, what does that say about us and our willingness to help others? t makes me wonder of this is a perfect example of why the majority of First Responders are so apathetic about WELLNESS. If WE cannot take an active role in our own wellness, why should we expect First Responders to be any different.
A few of the WHYs received:
To help others ralize thier potential in mind, body and spirit to live thier fullest lives. – Kortney Stock
To give back / help others who do what I cannot. My heart is full of love and caring … – Amy McKenna
What is your purpose, cause or belief? WHY do you do what you do?
Clarity of WHY: It all starts with clarity. You have to know WHY you do WHAT you do. If people don’t buy WHAT you do, they buy WHY you do it, so it follows that if you don’t know WHY you do WHAT you do, how will anyone else? (Simon Sinek – Start with WHY)
CHALLENGE: Share your WHY with me and others so that we can ALL be inspired.
Goal: 500 WHYs that I can ultimately put in a WHYbook.
- My WHY: To extend and/or improve the quality of life for others via yoga and other mindful practices, especially FIRST RESPONDERS!
