Be Intentional

How often do we wake up with an expectation for our day without setting the intention? A good day is the result of a decision we make, we influence the outcome of our day to a greater extent. If you wake up and say, “Today is not my day”, guess what? You will most likely not have the best of days.

Have you set the intention for today? Someone somewhere woke up today and said, “Today is my day.” You might not have been aware of it but chances are you’ve already set the intention for today. Maybe you didn’t use words. Maybe you woke up feeling down, just accepting that today is going to be “one of those days,” unconsciously setting the intention for the day. You’ll hear someone say, “no one likes me,” that’s the intention they are putting out to the world and the universe will definitely deliver on that.

I listen to my friends and sometimes I wonder if they understand the power of the intention they are setting. I watch closely and realise that the intention is visible in the result. For example, I have a very wealthy friend who believes that making money is easy. I guess that is why he is wealthy. He wakes up knowing what he can achieve and believes that it is without a doubt possible. Even when he is faced with a challenge, he does not view it as the end of his journey but simply as a learning curve. He is INTENTIONAL. He believes that money is easy to make and, more importantly, he believes that he knows how to make money.

I am not saying that being intentional is all it takes. Actioning our words and feelings are what gives us the results but imagine having to action bad intention. It all starts with the intention. My theory is that intention and effort are the formula for getting results. Effort, however, is wasted when the intention is bad or unclear. Setting a clear intention also doesn’t mean that our efforts will guarantee results but once the intention is clear, even if the results are negative, we are able to adjust and continue because the goal is clear.

If you wake up expecting to have a bad day, you would have set the intention and you will surely have a bad day. Maybe you have just launched a new business, if you do not believe you will win and be successful, your efforts will be wasted because your intention will not be  that of success.

Be intentional in the way you approach life and start seeing the results.
