Lesson 7

The Growing Why

Your Why is a burning desire. It is the driving force that makes you achieve your ultimate goals. As your life progresses and your horizons expand, your Why will also naturally progress. Here’s an important principle: Your Why expands as you grow.

With your Why growing and expanding, it is very likely you will notice more changes in your life. All of the sudden, you change your habits and you are more interested in investing more time in your personal development. Personal development is the key to advancing yourself mentally, physically and socially in order to achieve your Why.

The Power of Other People

As your Why expands and becomes more developed, you will find yourself growing past some old friends and your current lifestyle. Just visualize adding a drop of water to a glass every day. Soon the glass will overflow, and you will need a bigger glass. It’s the same with your Why. You will outgrow the everyday normalcy. Your Why will start spilling over into every part of your life, and you will start to reach for bigger and better things.
It may be painful or difficult, but creating change in your life always provokes change in your friends. It often takes courage and resolve to make those changes especially when it means that you must leave behind people that you have known all of your life. Many times, those same people just fall away when they see the new you. However it happens, change will always bring new friends and lose some old ones.

One of the principles in Napoleon Hill’s “Think and Grow Rich” is to let great people shape your life. That principle will always carry us away from people who are not great and will only keep us from achieving our Why. It is very likely that you will decide to just stop associating with certain people in your life. Some people have the unfortunate power to disconnect us from achieving our Why; therefore, we must make the decision to stop allowing those people to steal our dreams.

An accomplished and successful musician once said, “Critics are only remembered for what they failed to understand.” Don’t allow the critics in your life to kill your dream. Too many people have lost their dreams, because they have surrendered to the challenges that life threw at them. Those same challenges are often thrown by people that don’t understand and simply can’t hear the music in their own heart.

Many champions that disconnect themselves from the critics find themselves entering into a lonely, isolation zone. This is normal. It’s just part of the “friend exchange” that goes with your new life. You must be determined to surround yourself with other Champions that believe in you and want you to succeed. These people are your mastermind team.

Your mastermind team should consist of people that will walk with you on your path to success. They are people that will encourage you as you face challenges that threaten the ultimate achievement of your Why. Do you have a Mastermind Team? Let’s see.

Write down the top five people that you associate with on a daily basis. Please be truthful.






Now, cross off those people that are hindering and holding back your success. These are the critics that simply can’t understand your music (your Why). They refuse to believe that you can and will do better things with your life.

Don’t be surprised if you are left with only one or zero people out of those five. I’ve seen so many people give up on their dreams and the achievement of their Why, because they simply didn’t have a Mastermind Team to support them.

The Lifestyle Freedom Club

It’s very frustrating for me to see Champions fail because of their everyday associations with naysayers. That’s why I along with my team decided to take action and create the Lifestyle Freedom Club. This is the #1 fastest growing success and motivation club in the world full of other Champions just like you. I believe this club is a MUST for dream builders. Why? As I said before, it is very hard to achieve your Why by yourself. You need a support system, and someone that believes in you.

By changing your actions in life, you will change your results. By changing your results, you will notice that the quality of your life improves. This all happens, because you took the time and effort to find and ultimately achieve your Why in life.

Write down five action steps that you are committed to taking as you relentlessly pursue your Why.
