INTEND

Intend = to plan or want something; to have in mind as a purpose or goal – something to achieve.

What will you do with your potential to achieve?

 

You have tremendous resources, potential, and a world of possibility in which to achieve your goals—personal and professional. What do you want to achieve? Your answer is what you would intend.  

Every day, each of us expresses intention—to create, build, avoid, achieve, etc.  Although some of our intentions remain dormant as curiosities, hopes, and dreams, in order to reach a goal we must be committed to something that we intend.

We want to be our best selves, but what does that mean? What we know for certain is this:  we must intend.

Without intention for the direction you’ve chosen for your life, you give up your potential to create a life to happenstance.

Do you want to lead your life? If so, be clear about and committed to what you intend to achieve.
