Start With Why?: How Simon Sinek Changed My Life

Hi Friends,

In my first “Who am I Following?” post, I introduced you to Simon Sinek, one of the best TED Talk creators in my opinion. Today, I will tell you a little bit more about this amazing guy so, like me, you too can be inspired and motivated with his ideals and philosophies about leadership and management.

Simon O. Sonek is an English motivational speaker and author of the best-selling books Start With Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone to Take Action (2009) and Leaders Eat Last: Why Some Teams Pull Together and Others Don’t (2014). He popularized the concept of “The Golden Circle” which states that in everything we do, we must first identify “why” we are doing it instead of focusing on the “what” and the “how.” In his famous TED Talk, he mentions that innovative leaders and industry game changers like Apple Inc., Martin Luther King Jr., and the Wright Brothers apply this concept of focusing on why they do the things they do. This inspires more people because they align everything they do in the “why” and people, honestly speaking, support a company or an organization not because of what they do but because of why they do it.

After i read his Start With Why book, I totally understood how the golden circle works in my everyday life. Now, everything that I do, I make sure that it related to my “why” instead of my “what” or “how.” This really changed my life because it’s now easier for me to motivate myself and to live my daily life, as long as I am fully aware as to why I do the things I do.

I strongly advise that you watch his TED Talks at least once a month. You may also visit his website and be inspired everyday, whether it’s for your business, your studies, or your everyday living.

Till next time, #staySharp.

Hey Friends,

bookLeft1Today I would like to introduce you to Simon Sinek, he truly changed my life! We have not met yet but I follow everything that Simon does online, yes stalker style!

I read his book, “Start With Why” 5 years ago in 2011 and ever since I have defined my WHY and filter everything through it. I really mean everything. This blog and what I will launch in 2016 are all things I wanted to start to align more with my WHY.

While I highly, highly, highly recommend that you read the book, you will also get super inspired by his TED talk below. In fact it will be the best 18 minutes and 4 seconds of your life.

Start to understand that people don't buy what you do... they buy WHY you do it. Thanks @simonsinek Click To Tweet WIN: I will pick someone at random who shares this tweet above to win a copy of “Start With Why” by Simon Sinek book!

After you watch the video and order the book, start to think about what your WHY is and truly start to understand that people don’t buy what you do… they buy WHY you do it. let me say that again. Truly start to understand that people don’t buy what you do… they buy WHY you do it.

Whatever you do, private or business make sure it aligns with your WHY!

Day 6 of 30 Day blog challenge.

Hi friends, some Christmas freebies today, yay! Below are some of the books I have read that I can truly say have changed my life and set me up on the path to a great attitude, strong mindset and success. To me there is nothing more special then being able to share my knowledge and ideas of how to create a world of abundance.

To be honest I am getting sick of calling it the “self” help industry, it should be called “together” help. Working all together to teach each other new ideas and create change. Together everyone achieves more.
