“Intention is your gig.
Miracles are mine.
The Universe”©Mike Dooley, http://tut.com
It all starts with the deliberate intent to accomplishing your goals in life. Without the intent, you just have a meaningless purpose that has no direction. How can you perform anything without knowing the next step to take to get to where you want to be? As an author, before I even think of writing a book, I have to create an outline. It is like a roadmap to know where you are headed when writing your manuscript and eventually completing it. Writing is not so bad as long as you know what you want to write about without blabbering for 600 pages. You should definitely create direction and your intent to get there should be prioritized. “Thoughts become things”, as per the most popular say in the book “The Secret”. If thought is the intent and you remove the intent from the equation, you just have the become things left. The question is: What become things?
Many have the intention to do things, to accomplish daily tasks for them to reach their goals but they not always do it. The intent is being replaced by procrastination. They did have the good intention to do what they were suppose to do but other things came into the equation and diverge their attention to doing something else that was more beneficial to them at that moment. WIIFM (What’s in it for me) is rampant when focusing on other things that may be more beneficial to us or not. No one can really predict if it will or not. So what to do? If you truly believe in something and regardless if others support your decision or choice, you may stand alone in your belief or actions and it might feel lonely but who freakin cares. Do the things that you love doing and this is the secret to happiness. In retrospect, the secret to success is to love the things you do. No matter which way you look at it, I am sure that deliberate intent was a part of the equation.
