Respect your intentions

In order to get along well in society, you know you must respect the intentions of others. It’s just as important, if not more so, to respect your own intentions.

You begin each day, each week, each year with good intentions. Yet those intentions can quickly be whittled down to nothing by surprises, distractions, and negligence.

This time last year what did you intend to do? Have you done it all?

Assign your own intentions at least as much value as you would the intentions of someone you highly respect. Plant those intentions firmly in your awareness and find a way to keep them there.

Give continuing action to your intentions. Keep doing whatever you can so that you keep those intentions alive and prominent.

You absolutely can achieve what you intend. Give your intentions all the respect they deserve and earn the fulfillment you so richly deserve.

— Ralph Marston
