How many times have you either told someone or someone told you, “I really just need to find myself.” We all have questioned if we’re on the right path or wondered if there’s something more out there for us at some point.
We are multi-layered.
However, in attempting to find ourselves or discover our passions, we sometimes forget about or lose an important piece of who we are.There’s a layer our parents help shape over the years, a layer our friends shape, our bosses, our significant others and so on. When people go out there to “find themselves,” they strip away those layers, desperate to find something, anything, in hopes of discovering who they are. However, once they peel back all those layers, they are left with…NOTHING.
Intentions are defined as: “to have in mind a purpose or plan, to direct the mind, to aim.” Lacking intention, we sometimes stray without meaning or direction. But with it, all the forces of the universe can align to make even the most impossible, possible. Your intentions will assist you in taking greater control of your life.
State your intentions
When you have a vague idea about what you’d maybe like to accomplish, then the best you can hope for is to maybe move in the same general direction that you think you want to go. Instead of being tentative and vague, be confident and clear. It is amazing how much power and strength you can give to your efforts just by making it clear what results you intend to accomplish. You can literally feel that power the moment you confidently and positively state your intentions.
In my many years of being in the workforce I have been through a number of acquisitions and closings. It is a rough time for everyone. It is hard to stay focused when you are worried about if you will have an income in a month. We all have bills to pay and many of us have families to take care of, but in times like this it is important not to lose your head.
So here’s what happened to me last week. On Monday morning at 7:00 am I arrived at my largest client’s office just like every other day for the past 18 months. I put my key in the door and it did not turn. Now sometimes the door stuck but this felt different. It was still a bit dark out so I pulled out my IPhone, turned on the flashlight and saw a shiny new lock.
