“If you want to become successful, do more than an average person does in a day” Rob Dahm

In order to get a more powerful “why” I’m going to share with you a tool I picked up from Dean Graziosi which truly makes a difference and provides you with a more sophisticated “why” behind your actions.

With each level (iteration) we are going to dive in deeper to your core motivations. I’ll show you my example of using this tool and then you can do it on your own.

The 7 levels deep tool:
1. What is important to you about becoming successful?
I want to achieve financial freedom.

  1. Why is it important to you to achieve financial freedom?
    So that I can do whatever I want whenever I want.

  2. Why is it important to you to do whatever you want whenever you want?
    Then I can focus on the things that really matter.

  3. Why is it important to you to focus on those things?
    Then I can live a life of abundance with my future wife and kids.

  4. Why is it important to you to live a life of abundance with your future wife and kids?
    That way I will have a firm base to spread love and contribute to others.

  5. Why is it important to you to contribute to others?
    Because it is the greatest feeling one can experience and because I want to set an example for
    my children and leave a legacy.

  6. Why is it important to you to leave a legacy?
    Because the World will be a beautiful place if we strive towards that compared to me wasting
    my current day, week, month or year.

As you can see we went from a totally superficial reason of you getting up in the morning to something much more powerful. Now it’s your time to do the exercise!
