In homage of Dr. Wayne Dyer, who just passed away two days ago-I wanted to share with you something from him that impacted my life in meaningful way.
His Book the Power of Intention, Learning to co-create your world your way-published in 2004, had a profound impact on me. As I was just finishing university trying to find myself.
One of the most preeminent reason why most people fail is because they don’t know what they want.
Wanting starts with intention, first.
Why don’t we dig deeper into the meaning of it.
Let’s go the definition-to intend according to Merriam Webster dictionary means-to direct the mind on, to design for a specified use or future, to have in mind as a purpose or goal,to be used for a particular purpose or by a particular person.
What that means clearly?
Intention is a mental state that represents a commitment to carrying out an action in the future. Intention involves mental activities.
Ask yourself-What would I love Today, in my health, career, relationship etc…?
What I wanted to further discuss was the small difference but that make a big difference.
Being intentional and the verb to intend.
As it, we should scratch from our vocabulary the words, I want or I hope.
We should all adhere to I intend.
I intend implies a deliberate active effort to carry out the action desired.
As we intend we are using a part of our brain called RAS (reticular activating system).
What is the RAS?
Simple way to understand the RAS is this? Have you ever bought a car? To notice the next day that there are many more cars like yours…
The RAS allows us to pay attention to things that matter to us.
As we intend, during our daily activities we start to pay attention to things that matter to us.
The tragedy, is that the majority and average people just wish and dream, without properly “intending”.
Each evening before to go to bed and each morning make sure to “intend”.
Till Next time, Live Your Power with Passion, Purpose and Prosperity.
