As an entrepreneur you always hear how important it is to know your “why”. The truth is, you probably have several “whys”. We all do, we all have more than one goal and a purpose behind it. What can be just as important, if not even more so, is your “why not”.

It can be pretty simple to know what your driving force is to want to do something – but we rarely analyze what is holding us back. What is it that keeps us at a standstill? You need to know why it is that you are feeling stagnant and why your goals are still just that. Sometimes your “why not” might be internal. It may be a fear of success or a fear of instability. Other times it may be a a lack of money, resources, or strong enough network. No matter what it is, you must identify the problem. Once you’ve clarified that, then you can begin to create solutions to allow you to make progress quickly and efficiently.

Just like your “why”, your “why not” can change – or more may appear along your route to success. Because of that, you need to continually reevaluate your current situation. To dive deeper into this concept, I’ve brought on an expert who literally wrote the book on the power of “whys”, “hows”, and “why nots”:  Corey Poirier.

Corey Poirier is a multiple-time TEDx, MoMondays and PMx, Speaker. He is also the host of the top-rated ‘Conversations with PASSION’ Radio Show, founder of The Speaking Program, and he has been featured in multiple television specials. A columnist with Entrepreneur and Forbes, he has featured in/on CBS, CTV, NBC, and ABC, and is one of the few leaders featured twice on the popular Entrepreneur on Fire show. He has also interviewed over 4,000 of the world’s top leaders. One of his most recent talks took him to New York City where he had the extreme pleasure of speaking to At-Risk Youth at the Brooklyn Navy Yard Boys & Girls Club.
