What’s your “why”?

Welcome to my blog!  This blog is entirely dedicated to the journey of discovery – sounds great doesn’t it?

Let me introduce my self, I am Tabassum Sabir, a Global Business Coach.  I have a history of working in one of the top 5 Pharmaceutical companies in the world, and I loved my job as a research scientist.  My commute was 20 minutes from home and my job folowed on from my university education, everything was perfect.

I then met an amazing man and we married, the rest they say is history!  I moved to 1-2 hours away from work – the commute became painful, literally!  I then became pregnant – even more painful 😉

Anyway when my son arrived in October of 2012 (best day of my life to this day) all i had anxiety about from that day forward was how was I going to leave this gorgeous little thing everyday and go to work for 8 hours a day with potentially an extra 4 hours travelling.  Exhausted was the only word that came to mind.  Luckily I was blessed and circumstances lead to such that I was able to quit my job, but then the boredom slowly set in.

Another baby boy came in January 2015 and it was just not financially viable (I would be paying extortionate amounts in nursery fees for 2 children under 4, and family help was not an option) to go back to a traditional job so after researching many options and even trying my hand at a few I came across Network Marketing.

Did I get reeled in at the prospect of making money quickly, yes I was a little naive.  But I also know myself, I am dedicated and will not stop until i achieve my goal.  But what were my goals.  Discussing this at my first meeting, I actually couldn’t put my finger on anything, I wanted a laptop, a nice bag, some nice shoes…really? That is so superficial, I thought!

So my lovely mentor told me to think about it a little, a lot, she kept asking why is that your why.  Eventually we got to the bottom of it and honestly speaking that day everything changed with regards to business.

Sorry for the long introduction but the real reason why you joined NM is the reason you will get out of bed and do the activities that you do not particularly enjoy doing.

That very reason is the reason, you will step outside your comfort zone (for me it was live videos) do things you could never have imagined yourself doing – be your best self.  Sounds a bit surreal looking back now, but it definitely has made all the difference to my work ethic, my morning routine and my activity.  I am more focused, more motivated and hands up will admit I have plenty of room for growth and to learn.

You are not going to succeed in any business let alone NM unless your why is big enough.   Having your teeth whitened or having your nails done is not a big enough reason to get you out of bed when you don’t want to.  This week re-evaluate your why.  How important is it?  Why is it so important?  Continue to ask why (you may end up in tears – watching someone do this exercise is so emotional) but do not carry on until you know what the why is.  When you think about that why daily, you will be able to take your business to new heights.
