The Story Of My WHY
My business and life changed one fateful day in 2012 as I was venting my frustration at my lack of results in my online business to my coach and mentor.
I had been spending weeks and months and several thousands of dollars (money I didn’t have) on this online venture. I felt like I was spinning my wheels and going nowhere.
After my coach let me vent he simply asked me “What’s your Why, Samith?”
“Well, to make money, of course!” I said.
He gently asked again “What’s the REAL reason why you’re doing this?”
So I started to dig in deep and as I talked about my WHY, tears came down my face.
I wanted to be the best dad and husband that I could be. I wanted my kids to be able know that I would never have to put them second place. I wanted them to be proud of me and what I could accomplish and that they knew they could accomplish anything they put their minds to.
I realised my WHY was that I wanted to give my wife the choice to not work and be a full me mum.
I wanted to stop missing out on my daughters’ childhood and be able to pick up from school and take a day out to just be with them.
My WHY was to help support my mum in her retirement and look a after my family in Cambodia.
My WHY was to create a legacy to give back by setting up a foundation for less privileged kids to have the education they need to succeed in life.
That’s my WHY.
And after UNDERSTANDING and EMBRACING my why I began to get to work.
I learnt to pay the price.
I didn’t always pay it every day, or even perfectly, but I learnt to start paying it effectively.
In my previous four years online I’d made around fifty dollars in total! By the end of 2012 I had my first thousand dollar month, then my first thousand-dollar week, and then my first ten and twenty-thousand dollar months.
In 2013 I quit teaching, and I never looked back.
