When your why has heart, your how gets legs. Jon Vroman
Are you more likely to do something if you have a reason that touches your heart? Of course!
A Regular Why
Quit smoking to save money.
A Why With Heart
Quit smoking so your granddaughter won’t turn to her mom (your daughter) at her high school graduation saying, “I wish Grandma was here.” Quit smoking so you have more time with your granddaughter– to give her support and wisdom, to watch her smile and laugh, to be there as she finds love and starts her own family. Quit smoking because you love your family, they need you, and you need them.
You can’t give to your granddaughter and she can’t give to you if you’re dead. How can you quit smoking? Join a support group, get a patch, reward yourself for smoking one less cigarette a day.
You’ll figure out the how when you know why it’s so important.
When you find a reason to do something that touches your heart, it’s because you’ve found a reason to do what you were born to do: you were born to give. You were born to give to yourself and of yourself. You were born to give to your family and friends and to the world.
Give, because it’s how what is inside your heart gets out into the world. Giving makes your desires, yearnings, talents, and beliefs real. Giving gives your heart legs.
