Simon Sinek spoke about his idea of why certain leaders become successful and why some seem to fail. It starts with three circles. The outside circle is your what. Your what is what describes what you want to do or accomplish. This is basically the foundation of the start of pretty much anything. Then next inter circle is the how circle. This circle explains how you as the leader will make yourself worthwhile. The how is what will you do for to make your business or yourself successful. These circles are what most people get to but seem to forget the last and most important circle, the why circle. The why circle is the most important because it shows your passion and dedication to a specific goal. The why circle is what separate people from leaders to great leaders.

What was the point of this Ted talk? Well, this was actually quite inspiring to watch. It really made me realize the point of doing something. When you want to do something, you really have to dig deep and think of why do you want to do this. This passion is a necessity that every person needs to have in order to be successful. When you look at almost all successful leaders, you see people really understood why their are doing something.

I have currently developed a why for my life and what it means to me. My why statement is “Inspire others to merge Knowledge, Creativity, and Passion to create endless possibilities.” My goal is to use this statement like a plan for my future. I want to inspire others with all of the knowledge I know and will continue to learn, be creative with it, and use that help people figure out their passions. My passion is education and I know that with my why statement I will be able to positively impact our future generations.
