Emotions Beat Intentions Every Time
Are intentions important?
Is there something more important though?
Something that will thwart your intention?
It’s how you feel.
You can intend all you want, but if you don’t feel like doing something it won’t happen.
Without the emotional energy, in the moment, intentions are useless, worthless.
Like a fire place with no wood.
Lots of potential, but no fuel, and certainly no heat.
Ideally, you want to be clear in your intentions and powerful in your emotions.
To do this you must know 1) exactly what you want and 2) exactly why you want it.
To the extent either is unclear, you won’t accomplish anything of note.
But let me be absolutely clear: intention is necessary, but not sufficient.
Strong, authentic, sustained emotion is the key.
