Discovering Your HOW ?

Once a little time for reflection or a series of probing questions have been asked and answered, we all come to the realization that we have a WHY inside of us that triggers a deep and passionate response.  This can be the beginning of our frustration if it is not followed by the discovery of an appropriate HOW that will move us towards our goal.

In my experience, I have found that the WHY often requires either the building of wealth, the protection of wealth already built or most often some combination of both. The correct path get there is the HOW that must be discovered for each of us. What is often misunderstood is that one person’s HOW, is not the same as the next persons HOW, even if both are concerned with the same end goal.

The paths to our personal destinations are as unique as the individuals that are pursing them. There is no one size fits all and the efforts to make square pegs fit in round holes only results in frustration, disappointment and often damages the very resources that are s being built up or preserved.

A frank assessment of your own resources, capacity and temperament by a professional will go along way towards helping you select the right path for you. If you were going to take a trip to a foreign country ,traveling with all your loved ones and possessions in tow ,you would jump at the opportunity to have someone that had lived in the area for years join you as a guide or at least spend some time planning the trip with them.

The Big Why ?

If you have ever spent much time around toddlers , you are most likely familiar with the one word reply to almost any answer given to the questions asked by a child’s insatiable mind. WHY? as in ; WHY is the sky blue ? WHY is a dog’s nose cold ? WHY is water wet ?

Kids ask up to 300 questions a day , however as we grow up we start asking fewer questions. Perhaps it is because we know the answers or at least we assume we know the answers.  I find that continuing to ask questions is one of the key traits found in a  successful life. The answers that I get often provide the framework by which I can measure my success or that of those I serve in the first place.

Here are a few that I ask my Clients ;

  1. Why do you want to invest ?
  2. What will success look like to you ?
  3. Who are you investing for ?
  4. When do you want to achieve your goal ?

Each of these questions can be followed by a WHY in order to dig deeper , I find that after two or three levels we generally arrive at a real core motivation. I must warn you that this line of thought sometimes turns more intense then expected , however it is very empowering when combined with an action plan that addresses the underlying desire.
