Power up your intention with these four attributes
Whether we realize it or not, we procrastinate all the time. From tidying up our house, changing the bulb, to making our dreams come true, they just happen. Common excuses: “I’m not in the mood”, “I’m not ready yet, I’ll do it when I’m ready”, “Is this the right thing to do?”, “Is it worth it?”, “What happened if it doesn’t work?”.
Laziness, doubt, and fear. They are the culprits that stop you from taking actions and moving forward. Whether it is your responsibility or your dream that you want to complete, procrastination is the resistance that stops you from making the right progress. It makes your life almost stagnant. As a result, you lose the freshness of a lively life.
When you procrastinate, you avoid progress. In order to maintain a healthy lifestyle, and to move you closer to your dreams and visions, you have to keep on progressing. It is what keeps you flowing. Allowing yourself to be defeated by your own negative thoughts, means you are not taking control of your life. Having second thoughts whenever you want to take action is a sign that you don’t want to get out of your comfort zone. Your desire for a better life is not strong enough to push away those negative thoughts.
The truth is, one of the reasons why we procrastinate is, we are not sure of what we really want. Our goal is not clear. We have the desire, but it’s not burning. We are not willing to go the extra miles. The obstacles and the difficulties seem to be bigger than our goal. That’s why every time we want to take action, we feel reluctant. Our intention is not powerful enough to get our butt off our comfortable position.
In order to stop procrastination, the first thing you should do is to truly understand your intention. It is the goal that you want to reach, the condition that you want to be in, the destination you want to go, and the future life you have been dreaming of. So, you better make it good. Picture it in your head and most importantly feel it in your heart. Be clear, and make it irresistible. You have only one life, this is your opportunity to make it happen. Grab it now, because you can never turn back time.
Once you decided to make it happen, be determined. Determination makes your intention powerful. To be determined is to ignore other options as if you have only one. Thus, you have no choice but to make it happen no matter what. Without determination, you feel reluctant when the road is bumpy, and eventually, you open doors to second thoughts. But with determination, difficulties and obstacles look small. Instead of thinking negatively, you see opportunities to improve and to better equip yourself. With determination, rejections and hardships energize you to be stronger and give you the boost to prove your value. When you are determined you’ll find the way out, as the saying goes, “When there is a will, there is a way”. A determination is a strong vibration that synchronize the universe to your intention.
However, along the way, your intention needs to be nurtured. Keep your desire alive by learning from the people who have made their way to the top. Do your own research, and learn how successful people achieve goals similar to yours. Learn their secrets and strategies. Get to know their lifestyles, attitudes and habits. You’ll be inspired and motivated to take actions. Do whatever you have to do to keep your fire burning.
Also important is to make sure that your intention is sincerely meant to produce a positive effect, not only to your own life but also to others. This is the answer to the question why you want to meet your goal and why you must make it happen. Good intention helps to support you strongly, especially when others misunderstand you or negatively go against you.
Moreover, to produce the best, you must be opened to criticism and new ideas. It is the genuineness that matters. It is not your ego that you want to fight for here. What matters most is the benefits, the goodness, that your intention will bring about to the world. Whatever comes your way, accept and welcome them wholeheartedly. Learn your lesson, and improve. They are meant to purify your intention, making it more meaningful. Meaningfulness, in fact, is the most important factor that energizes you to keep on going no matter what. The more desperate you are to embrace that meaningfulness, the stronger your intention will be.
Without these four attributes, namely; clarity, determination, aliveness, and meaningfulness, an intention is just a desire. You need more than a desire to surpass your doubt and fear. The feelings of achieving the end result and being in it ahead of time, making your intention irresistible. You are already there, where you want to be, mentally and emotionally. The satisfaction, the enjoyment, and the happiness of seeing smiling face of everyone affected are the sense of joy that you choose to flow in your blood. Powerful intention energizes your mind and body, and vibrates your being to the perfect vibration, accelerating the manifestation of your intention.
