Def: Justification, motive,
Have you ever asked yourself, “What’s the point?” It’s hard to do anything in life without reason. It could be said that it was their quest for reason that drove one of the greatest movements in humanity and understanding during the renaissance that awoke Rome out of the middle ages. It could also be said it is what drives you at the deeper level... trying to understand why you are here and why do you do the things you do? It is very important in any skill or knowledge development that you study and become aware of why you want the things you want?
Whenever I go through a goal-setting process, after I ask what it is they want to achieve, I ask them why they want to achieve that? In other words, what’s the point? Without a target, you have nothing to aim at and without a plan, there is no direction. But without purpose, the journey lacks energy. How far can you go, without energy?
Your search for reason is what inspires deeper awareness of your craft. Ask yourself, why do you do what you do? Why do you practice the way you do? Why do you want what you want? Why do you use certain equipment? Why do you have the people you do in your support network...why? What's the point? Your curiosity will help you understand, not just where you are at, but it might also inspire deeper understanding and awareness of where you could be. Because we are looking for a better place to be. Why? It will feel better than where we currently are.Reason gets you through the hard times, because you need a pretty good reason to get up early and to practice when others are not… to keep going when the going gets tough... when the only person that truly belives in you, is you.
It is a natural way of our mind, to look for reason, so it is also a natural way to success. When you are doing things from the right place (you) and for the right reason, this is called inspiration, the ultimate energy which will shine on everything you do. Learning and high performance is never far away when inspiration is present. But remember, reason has to come from your own free will, not because somebody else wants you to do it.That's motivation and an energy source that is short-lived.
They reason most of our adult intellegence is learned before you're 5 years old, is simple, you kept asking, "why?" Maybe you stopped because others lost patinece in you. But you are an adult now yourself, so keep asking and never lose patience in yourself and your own quest for reason. So, next time you're deciphering a plan of high performance, go back to your inner child and ask the thing you always did ask... why? And let the answers to your questions drive you.
