Why do you do what you do?
It’s a simple question, but actually answering it may be harder than you think.
The answer to this question is what determines your business’s mission. Being clear on your business’s mission is crucial because it will affect every decision you make in your business. To know who you help and how you help them, you first have to understand why.
So let’s dive in and talk about how to determine your mission for your business!
Your mission determines EVERYTHING you do in your business. If you want to show up powerfully, you have to have a powerful reason behind why you do what you do!
If you are constantly innovating in your business, you will constantly be thriving. Some things will fall flat and not perform the way you envisioned, but innovation above all else is what will truly bring out your specific magic.
But your mission doesn’t change. When you’re doing new things in your business, always come back to your mission.
Here are some questions to reflect on so you can answer why you do what you do:
Answering these questions will help you get clarity so you can be super sure of your mission!
I want to give you a behind-the-scenes look at how all of this plays out in real life.
A big part of my business’s mission is to help entrepreneurs get the most out of their content so that it works for them (and not vice versa!) I want to help others achieve this, but first, I have to do it for myself.
So I’ve been looking at all my content to see what is and isn’t working for me. I realized that with my social media, I don’t have to be on every single platform. In fact, spreading myself to thin is incredibly draining and just waters down my message.
To serve my business’s mission, I’d be better off showing up powerfully on fewer platforms.
So I decided to shut down my free Facebook community. I realized that space wasn’t where I felt most comfortable and wasn’t where I felt the most committed to showing up consistently.
Connecting back to my business’s mission really helped me make that decision. I want everything I do to be serving that mission.
Shutting down my Facebook community was the best decision for me, but showing up powerfully in a Facebook group might be the perfect decision for someone else. It ALL works. It just depends on what’s best for you and YOUR business.
What will help you serve your business’s mission in the most powerful and effective way? That’s what you need to ask yourself, and don’t worry about what others are doing.
I hope this post gave you some more insight on how to answer why you do what you do.
