Start with why by Simon Sinek

Assalamualaikum semua and welcome back to my blog,

My name is Muhammad Hafiz and I am the author of Malaya Journal. You can call me Madpiz. But, if you are wondering what the hell is this guy doing here writing a blog while people keep on working 9 to 5? Let me tell you something about that and this question would be my main topic for today.

Since this is my first time I try to be more transparency in my blog, I tried not to make it less awkward than the way it is.  But, how much transparency am I talking about? It’s about YouTubers big because I just created my own YouTube channel for this transparency reason. What I can guaranteed you is that this channel is not for advertisement and surely it is not for money and fame.


What did I create Malaya Journal and Youtube Channel?

I create it because I wanted to inspire people to keep on learning and growing until they become the very best version of themselves. This is exactly what am I doing right now. I am learning and practicing at the same time. So the first person who had been inspired to keep on learning and growing is probably myself.

And when I say, I want you to become the very best version of yourself, it doesn’t mean your appearances only but also our mindset. This is what I have been trying to do. Basically, I want to change Malaysian mindset. But, I am not saying that I am already outgrowing you in terms of mindset growth. What I mean is, if you don’t subscribe to my YouTube channel you are going to get left behind.

Frankly speaking, I want to provide the best guide in the best possible way by providing bits of knowledge that you need in order to transform yourself to become the best at what you do. It does not matter what kind of jobs you have whether you are in entrepreneurship, business, lawyers, engineers, accountants, doctors, because our goals are the same. We want to become to keep on learning and growing until we become the very best version of ourselves.

So if you keep on watching me on this channel you will see me transform into someone better and better every day. Yes, I will become the living experiment of my own mission in life. But you should follow it too, I don’t want you all to get left behind.

Always remember, the best investment you can make is within yourself.

My own “Start with Why”.


Yes, I notice that this is a big goal and surely it is hard to do. But hey, if it was easy everybody would have done it right? But if you are up for it and willing to put in the works to become the best at what you do. The real questions would be, Why not I give it a try right? I believe with full faith that we all can become the very best version of ourselves until Malaysia become the greatest country in the world.

This is my cause, this is “the why” and this is what drives me to keep inspiring people so that they will keep on learning and growing until they become the very best version of yourself.

“People don’t buy what you do; they buy why you do it. And what you do simply proves what you believe”
― Simon SinekStart with Why

The lesson for today is Start with Why.

This is because from this episode or blog post you will know my why I created this video. So what I want you to do is you have to know your own WHY that driven you to work every single day.

Money is never the answer because when you only work for money which what you want instead of why you do you work, just wait until a few years and you will get bored easily and feels like a dead man working. And then, You would always feel like you need a vacation and you always waiting for Fridays, always Mondays Blues.

So start with why is so important and this is what separates you from other successful people and the average. But don’t worry if you still did not know you why. That is perfectly fine but from today onwards you gonna have to find your why.

And while we are on a topic of start with why, be sure to read the book Starts with why by Simon Sinek. It is one the best book on find your why that I have ever read.

Alright, guys, I believe in you and I know you can do this, I know you can “find your why” that drive you to get up to work every single day. Because before I started this blog and Youtube Channel, I had no idea why I was doing this and that. Literally none.

But its okay, what it takes is the commitment to never-ending learning. Don’t worry about being good today, just be committed to getting great over time. And nothing, nothing, teaches more powerfully that action and failure, so put yourself out there with an open mind and willingness to learn and long enough timeline, you will succeed.


The question of the day?

Start with your why and I want you all to find your why. Ask yourself,  What the one that keeps on driving you to keep on working every single day and to get out of your beds?
