Intent of the Day: When to Say Yes

kelly-sikkema-216022

In every situation, we will have the opportunity to find someone smarter, taller, faster, whatever defining feature you can dream of. It doesn’t even have to be true, but when we are scared to leap, it gets easier to assume that someone who is more capable will come along. The downside is we end up missing a lot of big Bold YES opportunities because we accept a no or we give ourselves a no. We may even find ourselves anticipating a no. No means we don’t have to risk. No means we don’t have to fail publicly. No can be safe. Today we intend to go big and take a risk. Our intent is to know when to say yes.

In all things, we have the opportunity to either stagnate or grow. We have the opportunity to be better or struggle to stay the same. By not choosing, it doesn’t mean we won’t make a choice.

Intent of the Day: Open to New Ideas

lydia-harper-212169

We don’t always realize how much staying open is a conscious effort. To keep using your eyes, to keep moving forward means you’ve set an intent to see beyond what you’re used to seeing. New ideas means we have to know what we believe. It means we have to stay open and willing to face the uncomfortable and for so many, avoiding the uncomfortable it the whole point but what could happen if you weren’t afraid? Our intent is to stay open to new ideas.

Intent of the Day: Stand Behind What We Say

toa-heftiba-123513

Saying what you believe is only half the battle. It can be just as scary to try sticking to what you say. In any are of your life, standing by what you say is going to determine levels of trust, reliability and care. It’s going to indicate your ability to listen, adapt and stay committed. When we are tired or feel unsupported, it feels less worth it to stand. When we don’t see ourselves as leaders or captains of our lives, it can feel pointless, but we can assure you that much is communicated by speaking up and staying strong. We intend to stand behind what we say.

Intent of the Day: Patience with Speed

calvin-chou-189026

We’ve got a lot to do today and slowing down doesn’t appear anywhere on the list. The frustrating thing is that there are other people on this planet! People in their cars. People on the sidewalk going slower than we want. People in aisles. People we’re waiting to answer phone calls or emails or texts or give us a green light. People are slowing us down!

In reality, we hope to never live on an island unto ourselves. People can make an experience frustrating, but when we choose to be patient and take a moment, we increase the likelihood that we gain a partner or an advocate versus a speed bump. In other people we find wisdom, we pass on wisdom and we find the support we need to make these to-do lists a thing of the past, so today our intent is to be patient with those who aren’t going our speed.

You too? Here are 3 reasons why you should: Continue reading
