The power of intention

Intention can be a powerful force. For it is with intention that thoughts are transformed into results, that goals are achieved, that dreams are brought to reality.

The intentions you are following are the ones you really, truly have adopted and empowered with your commitment. What matters are not the intentions you merely talk about, but the ones you actually bring to life with your actions.

Every genuine intention leads to a result. Every intention puts you solidly on the path toward whatever you intend. The trouble is that your intentions so often are contradictory, and end up working against each other. For doubt and fear are intentions just as surely as are confidence and desire.

Imagine for a moment what would happen if you could do away with all those negative, self-defeating intentions. Imagine the spectacular results of giving free reign to your positive, creative, productive intentions.

In fact, you are completely free to choose your own intentions, and the ones you choose will determine the results you get. So choose those intentions that truly move you forward, and leave all the rest behind.

— Ralph Marston
