What is My Why?

what is my why

I was watching Simon Sinek’s interview today. He was talking about the 10-year anniversary of his first “Why speech. If you’re unfamiliar with the “Why speech,” Simon says your Why is the purpose, cause, or belief that inspires you. I first saw him share this philosophy during his TED Talk 7 years ago.

Everyone who knows me knows I love watching TED Talks. This one really spoke to me. I can’t believe it’s been 7 years since I saw that TED Talk. I also can’t believe how many things have changed in my own life since I first saw it.

At that time, I was still a seeker. You know the type, working away at every task on the to-do list while constantly wondering what it was that I was supposed to be doing. What was my purpose? At the time I was working full-time in administration and writing for free on a couple of Disney blogs. I loved the writing and I loved helping families plan their trips but I was only doing it on a volunteer basis. It wasn’t until a year or so later that I found my purpose. Simon said this,

“The best ideas are the honest ones. Ones born out of personal experience. Ones that originated to help a few and ended up helping many.” – Simon Sinek

That is exactly my story. My love of travel began when I was very young. Traveling every Summer with my family and making lasting and wonderful memories, it’s easy to understand why that was my favorite time of the year. “Mousenapped” during my first visit to Walt Disney World as a teenager, I always dreamed of growing my family Disney and I have been blessed to be able to do so.

I am passionate about travel and I believe that people are never closer than when they’re traveling together while watching the daily pulls of everyday life fade away in the rearview mirror.

As a mom, and now a Mimi, I’ve spread the love of travel to my own family. We enjoy our visits to the happiest place on earth immensely and I love helping couples, families and multi-generational families experience wonderful memories that last a lifetime. In parallel to Walt Disney’s dream, it is my sincere wish that everyone take at least one Disney trip in order to share in its magic with their families. I am here to make that goal a reality in the easiest way possible. This is my “Why.” This is why I do what I do!
