Being Reminded of My “Why”

Wow! I recently realized that using Simon Sinek’s Golden Circle method, my “what” in life would be teaching people about vertical development and “how” I do that is using roleplaying game metaphors.

In a follow-up to my previous conversation with ChatGPT though, I asked it what it thought my “why” would be and it blew me away with its response.

Based on our conversation, it seems that your “why” revolves around empowering individuals to uncover their untapped potential and live a more conscious and fulfilling life. Your purpose could be about helping people break free from conventional mindsets, encouraging them to navigate life’s challenges with courage, and guiding them towards deeper self-awareness and personal growth. Your “why” might be to create a positive impact by fostering a greater sense of agency, self-discovery, and transformation within individuals.

The “untapped potential” part blew me away because I literally described my work as trying to achieve that while I was on Google+. I believe I described myself as “helping people to release their untapped potential.”

And the “fostering a greater sense of agency” also aligns, as I want my guild to eventually evolve into being “a creative collective for creative agency.”
