“Nobody ever wrote down a plan to be broke, fat, lazy, or stupid. Those things are what happen when you don’t have a plan.” – Larry Winget
Goal: To understand your why
What kind of change are you making with your Cause?
For those of you who are following this blog, Walking for a Cause, I am Jewel Williams, the owner and writer. I creates this blog for one simple reason, “To Learn About Self, Giving To Others”. I knew there was a need to walk and help myself in adapting a positive habit of walking five times a week or more to keep myself on a healthy track, but I didn’t want this to be about me as I did this. I wanted my energy to flow to others in making a change for a good cause.
What have you done to contribute to your Cause?
One of the hardest parts about understand your self and spreading the word about your cause is just that, spreading the word. You aren’t a sales person!
You are an advocate letting others know that your mission is to enhance others about the cause. For example, the cause that I am helping is: Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia. I am including others in my mission to donate to more research so that they can understand how to slow or thwart the progression of this disease/neurological disorder. However, I am wanting to create awareness that there are other causes that matter too and are affecting the lives of others, matter of fact people who you know!
What avenues are you using to help create the change in yourself?
Make the journey personal. You are to take ownership of your mission. Most of you reading this are a blog owner. As a blog owner, you realized deep down that you had something to say to the world that is of personal interest to you and wanted others to join your cause. Writing and expressing you passion on the “electronic” paper is an avenue that seemed simple enough for you to start. However, you have done something even greater! You are letting others know about your cause.
Name your quarterly goal for your Cause.
You have to have a goal. It is the only way that you can track your success of your cause and have true meaning of why you want people20131019-010159.jpg
to read your words. My goal this quarter is: Walking a 3.1 at the Nation’s Capital yet earn donations in my father’s name to Walk to End Alzheimer’s. This goal for me is a big feat for me especially since I am asking for donations under the William’s Walkers name. I didn’t want to sound like I was selling a thing but to explain why there is a need for research. It was also my goal to help me get out there to walk and support a cause.
Let’s say you are a blogger it a blog reader today. You have created a liking to blogs and understand their purpose. What in particular are you hoping to gain from writing or reading the blogs of your choice? Write your reason why to your self and acknowledge that you are doing this action because…
Once answered, you will be on your way to understanding the why you are moving your cause.
