Welcome back valued reader to my blog site. “JimmieWilksOfficial.com,” where we discuss everything affiliated with improving the body, mind, and helping to grow your business!
Today, we will be discussing knowing your intentions, especially, If you truly want to be successful in life and in business. You will definetly need to learn how to set an intention and then put that into action.
Quite often, our intentions are self-evident and it isn’t necessary to outright define or state them,
however the better you are at understanding your intentions, the easier it will be to see it through.
According to psychologist Martin Seligman, it’s not just positive intentions we want; we also want to
feel entitled to those positive feelings.
He goes on to say that the belief that we can rely on shortcuts to happiness, joy, rapture, comfort and ecstasy, rather than be entitled to these feelings by the exercise of personal strengths and virtues, leads to legions of us starving spiritually.
Positive emotion alienated from the exercise of character can lead to emptiness, inauthenticity and depression. So, with that being said it becomes clear why understanding your intentions is such a critical step in nurturing a success mindset.
Stating and understanding your intentions can be the difference between focusing on short-term goals that only provide fleeting satisfaction, or longer term gratification.
Of course, in the search of your true purpose and what really matters to you, you’ll find that you
likely have intentions from 3 aspects of life:
Immediate Intention, Short-Term Intention and Life-Long Intention.
With immediate intention, you are taking care of yourself, self-reflecting and improving every single day. You are trying to strike a balance in your life, paying more attention to gratitude and giving yourself the much needed time too fresh.
Short-term intentions could be goals in your career that you wish to accomplish within the next few weeks, or months. And while you should be focused on the many things you want to achieve in the coming months, it’s important that you also honor and recognize where you are now in your life.
Life-long intentions are ones that continue throughout your life, and chances are once you begin to recognize and understand intentions, you’ll notice they are part of a greater theme and one that is almost necessary for you to find happiness and contentment.
Life-long intentions trace back to your core values. They define who you are, or who you want to be.
Think about your current intentions, as well as your life-long ones. Write them down, study them, think about them and allow yourself the opportunity to truly understand what really matters to you.
