106 Why is knowing my WHY important?

This episode looks at an important element of Mental Toughness, commitment.  With my guest, Amy Rowlinson, the host of the fantastic Focus on Why podcast.  We dig deeper and talk about why we do what we do.  Living a purposeful life, not simply drifting, responding to challenging times, intrinsic and extrinsic motivation, our core values and how you can go about finding your why are some of the things we chat about. Enjoy tuning in!

Some great questions to ask yourself in finding your why:

  • What is my purpose?
  • What gets me out of bed in the morning and excites me?
  • Do I have a plan to keep me on course?
  • What are my core values?
  • What experiences contribute to my why?
  • Does the company I work for or the club I play for have clear values?
  • Does the club I play for or the company I work for have values that are aligned with my values?
  • In my leisure time, do I make sure I’m being true to my values?
