Simon Sinek, the author of Start with Why shares about the importance of connecting with your true source of motivation. Motivation is a major tenant of leading. It is a concept that has been researched for years and the intricacies can be discussed endlessly. When we find our "why", we are able to deeply connect to a reserve of energy that serves as the engine of our hard work and dedication to overcome obstacles.
Motivation can come from many different places and all of us have one (or more) things that drives us. It could be money, family, fear of failure, the rush of success, etc. Most leadership and performance coaches will tell you that lasting success is typically driven by something deep within. When we tap into this source of motivation, work becomes a joyful experience.
