Why You?

No instant response? Then listen up...


I'm going to share a tool with you to help you find it

And while we're at it, I'll share my own experience finding mine


You see, I started asking myself this question years ago, and it wasn't by accident


This was the title of a presentation I had to give during my time at my first corporate gig


I was in my early 20's and had no idea why me? In fact, I was totally lost at the time


But it was the first time I started to ask myself this very important question


And even without an answer, I now had a question to start with


Why me? Why was I here and what am I going to do


I'll admit it, it was a lot of pressure at the time


And I wanted to figure it out quickly


But it doesn't work like that


Now I know why...


Out of Order


You have to be patient


Because you can't answer why you?


If you, yourself, don't even know who you are...


That's why my presentation was shit, it lacked confidence


But what would you expect if you're working a job you don't enjoy


And selling a product you don't believe in...it's a losing game for all involved


But when I started working in the cannabis industry, things changed drastically for me


I was able to take on roles that I did not have past experience with and deliver


I was able to connect deeply with my work and what we were all doing


I was able to leverage all my past experience and knowledge


I was able to build something that was bigger than me


And now I had some answers I could work with


In the end, my cannabis relationship


Was part of who I was inside


But I had to be patient...


Pen to Paper


Although I now had answers


I still had 100x more questions on my mind


One being why I always hesitated to publish my writing


Actually, it was worse than that, I wasn't even finishing my writing


I wanted to share my experiences, knowledge, and stories with other people


But I had no understanding of how it was going to help anyone or why they would read


Ironically, it was again my work with cannabis that helped me get started writing


And my very first piece of content on LinkedIn was about a reggae song


It's more or less irrelevant now, but it's what helped me take action


So that I could learn more about myself as my writing evolved


Which lead to writing about much more than cannabis


And began to focus on personal development


A subject near and dear to my heart


That will help many people


Answer Why You?...


Build or Bust


Now that work was aligned


And my writing had evolved as well


It was time to shit or get off the pot my friends...


I could start building a brand around all of this or do nothing


And as I sit here and reflect for a moment, I realize how natural this all was


Each step I took over the past few years has led to where I am right now, writing this blog


Sharing my experiences, knowledge, and stories to help you all grow as well


So that you can all be yourself without having to worry anymore


So that you can take action and get out of your head


So that you can answer the tough questions


And do it without any hesitation


That's why I'm building...


The Lesson


No need to overcomplicate it


We all know who we are deep down inside


Most being artists of one form or another (with no action)


But it's nearly impossible to answer Why You? when you're not yourself


When you're not doing work you enjoy, or working on hobbies that bring you joy


This is the first step to getting closer to having answers for the questions that you want


But how do you get there? Through connection...with body, people, and yourself


Take care of your body (exercise/therapy) and most of the hard work is done


Build meaningful relationships and be vulnerable, you'll learn a lot


Write daily to connect with your deepest values and goals


Do those three things, and you're well on your way


To becoming who you were meant to be


Without having to worry anymore


By taking action my friends


So you can answer


Why You?....


With Love,

Steven Arthur George
