Focus on Intention.
Cell phones, tablets, smart watches, conference calls, meetings...our days are often consumed with activity. The question is what is your intention? It is at the moment when you forget the answer to the question that the "trouble" begins. It is in that vacuum of uncertainty--the moment when you forget the reason why you are doing what you are doing--that you make yourself vulnerable to office politics, gossip, job dissatisfaction, etc. Awaken to your sense of purpose. It does not need to be a sense of purpose for your existence; focus on your purpose TODAY. Why are you doing what you're doing?
This is a question that must be asked over and over again. The world changes and so does your life; your intentions will evolve with your being. You may entertain your fears by investing in a false belief where you are controlled by circumstances. Do not fall for this temptation of self-sabotage. You are always in the driver's seat. If you don't know where you're going, why don't you pull over and figure it out? Take the time to invest in yourself so that you will have more to give to others. Take 30 minutes for yourself today to examine your life. Do you like what you have created for yourself or is it time to create something new?
Success or sabotage? Your every thought word and action is answering this question. Why not be conscious of your choice to effectively evaluate the merit of your decision?
Is this going to be an incredible day? Avoid the "hamster on the wheel" impersonation that has become so popular in American society. Take inventory of yourself and give thought to what would make this a great day by your definition. What will you do to get it?
