I’d like to start by talking about wealth. When we think about wealth, it’s easy to get wrapped up in the more typical representations of wealth: money, possessions, stuff. Now, wealth certainly can refer to abundance and prosperity - but I’m of the mindset that money is only half of the equation. I believe that wealth is also about building and enjoying the life you’ve created.

It’s possible to have plenty of money and still feel completely unfulfilled. Is that wealth in the truest sense of the word? No!

This is why it’s vital to identify your why. Now, I’m sure you’re thinking, “Christin, what does it mean to find my why? I’m satisfied in my daily life. I have enough money, I have a nice car, I go on vacations - I’m wealthy!”

But finding your why and building your wealth is about more than just the cars parked in your driveway. It’s about discovering what brings you joy, what feeds your spirit and what sparks your passion. Identifying your why is the first step on the path towards building your wealth and enjoying the life you’ve created.

Ask Yourself the Following Question to Find Your Why

I like to ask the following question to help my clients identify their why: if you had all the time and money you needed, what would your life look like?

Many individuals struggle to answer this question, because it’s hard for most of us to imagine building a life where we’re not tied to our careers, bills and responsibilities. But if you had the time and money, what would your life look like? Would you invest in your health? Would it afford you more quality time with your family? Would you pursue your hobbies? Would you travel? Putting thought into this question is a valuable tool to help you uncover your passion. Often, the very first things that come to mind when you ask yourself this question are at the core of what makes you happy. This is your why.

Why You Should Take the Time to Identify Your Why

So why should you bother with trying to identify your why? Why not just jump into real estate investing, or any other business venture that you think will generate good income? I’ll be the first to admit that even the most foolproof business plan can have its challenges. There will be peaks, but there will also be valleys. When you take the time to find your why, you are far more likely to not only be successful, but also to enjoy the journey.

  • Your ‘why’ remains a constant guide towards realizing your goals.
  • When life knocks you down, your ‘why’ helps to pick you back up.
  • Your ‘why’ helps keep you on a path towards building a life that you love.
