Jon Gordon – Know Your Why

In this video

“We don’t get burned out because of what we do. We get burned out because we forget why we do it.”

Having a vision for your life and knowing where you are going is powerful but it’s even more powerful when you know why you are going there. Purpose is the ultimate fuel that moves you towards your vision. Living life without purpose is like driving from New York to California on one tank of gas. You’ll be running on empty before you know it. But knowing your Why and having a purpose is like having gas stations along your route where you can recharge and refuel to keep moving towards your destination. You will face adversity, but when your purpose is greater than your challenges and you know why you are moving towards your North Star, you become an unstoppable purpose driven force of positivity. When you know your why and know the way, you will find a way and won’t let obstacles get in your way.
