Without 'Knowing Your Why' You Can't Break Brick Walls

I often get asked how we have been able to build up such a successful online business over the last 11 months. For most people I guess it still boggles the mind how we were able as a young family to survive such an offline business catastrophe and still manage to jump online and build what we now have.

Well for me it comes down to one success principle, and that is "Knowing Your Why." I have always known that having an idea of why you are starting a business affected the results you would have, but until meeting my online coach/mentor last year I did not realize how critical it really was.

You see my belief system (like many other people I know and meet) had been developed by my parents, family members, and friends that I had allowed into my inner circle. None of them really knew what it would take to be successful in business, since they had never ventured into that world.

Therefore, I wasn’t just green to business; I was probably more like purple. :-) When I started my now defunct offline printing business, I did not have someone to be there to help me. I did not have an advisor, someone who could guide me or shed the light on the mistakes I was making.

I was trying to play the offline business game at a high level without a coach and without knowing how or what to practice on. Even though I felt completely out of my league... I still expected to have great results. It is difficult to admit, but for the most part I flubbed my way through the everyday activities of this business.

Don't get me wrong here I worked very hard, but because I did not know my 'Why'... I had no idea what direction I was headed in much less how to get there. I was taking it one day at a time and I figured one day I would wake up and all of the hard work would culminate in the ultimate breakthrough of massive profits.

No plan, no direction, no goals, no time management, and no one to run ideas by or get input from. This led to many preventable mistakes and boy did they pile up. When the recession finally hit our area, I was as exposed as a baby's behind is when it is born into this world.

Less than eight months later I had to close the business for good. In the process I learned some keys lessons. I don't have to know it all to be successful, but I do need to know the people who have the answers when I need them.

I needed to stop doing life on my own (when it came to starting and running a business), and I needed to find other people who had achieved the success I was wanting in my life and attach myself to their right hip. I needed to follow someone else to my success, so then I could then stand up to be the leader I wanted to be.

This finally happened when my online coach/mentor sat down with me and said, "Juan, what do you really want? Without you knowing exactly (down to the most miniscule detail) what it is that YOU want, you will always continue having the same result of failure."

So with his help and the help of an online community full of coaches like this, my wife and I wrote down exactly what we wanted. We set goals (income and lifestyle related) with specific time frames, we learned how to manage our time better to be 10 times more productive, and we plugged in and followed their plan step-by-step.

The result? Our lives have totally been transformed. Not only did we reach our goals in half the time we allotted ourselves, but we are now helping other people do the same for themselves.

One of my favorite quotes from this community is recited almost every day by someone I have come to know and trust, Mr. John Jackson. He states, "Do something good for some else today in the knowing that they can never repay you."

I hope this post helps you get past your brick walls of failure by learning from my own. If you are interested in learning more about how I can help you start a successful online business and be your personal coach/mentor, click on the link you see below.

  1. Thank you for the wake-up call Juan. I think through all the bustle of getting things started and trying to fit in everything, it can be hard to lose sight of your goals. It can be easy to get caught up in what you are doing and forget why you are doing it. I think I am going to sit down and re-assess my goals so I can have a clear understanding of why I started all this in the first place. Thanks for sharing. I am sure I can learn from your experiences and avoid them in my own life.

  2. Hi Juan!
