“Intent” is defined in the dictionary as: “An act or instance of determining mentally upon some action or result; the end or object intended; purpose.” Living with intention is living what we do, not what we say we will do. John Maxwell tells great leaders: “No one stumbles upon significance. We have to be intentional about making a difference.”
When we live with intention, we live with a plan and specific goals, outcomes and time frames in mind for what we dream and want to do. We know and understand our ‘why’ behind them. We dare to be bodacious, creative and live a life of unlimited abundance in all its depth and richness. Our intentional living brings a continuous, intentional reflection on these plans and goals in assessing the significance they bring to objectives, the people impacted and to ourselves. As Rhonda Byrne writes us: “Intention is simply the conscious act of determining your future now.”
Maxwell writes: “Good intentions will never take you anywhere you want to go. Only intentional living will get you the things you want in life.” He reminds great leaders: “Every day of your life is merely preparation for the next. What you become is the result of what you do today.” Live with a passionate intention of achieving your life’s purpose and meaning, of serving others that they will achieve theirs and becoming more than you ever dreamed you could be… and more… so much more. Life is so very, very good.
Have a beautiful day, a magnificent week and a joyous and Happy Thanksgiving!!!
