Know Your Why: Michael Jr.

On February 1, 2016 one of my best friends shared this video with me on Facebook. Although I’m familiar with the concept of finding why we do what we do and the importance of knowing what our purpose is in life, I have yet to see it delivered as eloquently as how Michael Jr. presents it in this video.

Michael Jr. mentions, “When we know our why, we have options on what our what can be.” As mentioned in one of our previous posts entitled, “How Might We Discover our Purpose”, once we are able to discover, identify, and pursue our calling [“Our Why”], we are then better equipped to select and manage which assignments [“Our What”] are in our best interest in regards to achieving our ultimate success!

“When we know our why, our what has more impact because we are walking in or towards our purpose.” – Michael Jr.

Living Brave: Brené Brown and Oprah

Brené Brown catches up with Oprah to discuss living life with bravery, courage, and truth in this episode of Living Brave. In this video, Oprah discusses the clarity of intention and how it helps us to live a more fearless life. She also makes time to discuss what it takes to lead a brave life while “disappointing” others and creating a kitchen cabinet of resourceful people who can serve as our truth-tellers.

In particular, Oprah mentions:

“We cannot live a brave life without disappointing some people. However, the people who are rooting for our rise will not be disappointed. The only people who are disappointed are the ones who have their own agenda.”

This very statement closely resonates with one of our posts from back in May of 2015 entitled, Trust Yourself…Do What Matters! Lastly, Brené Brown leaves us with a few wise words of her own, “If you’re brave enough often enough, you will fall.” Let’s learn to embrace our falls and move on with more courage, love, and mindfulness especially as we head into a new year. Happy 2016!!!
