Everything is an opportunity to learn... there is no failure.. only feedback.

If you find yourself slipping in one area, remember it is a choice to get back on track. One slip into old habits is not who you are, it is simply an opportunity to step up once more. You will feel great about yourself when you do this. This is living with Intent.

It’s the difference between living life purposefully and just letting life carry you where it carries you. Determinedly experiencing your life as you choose or simply escaping from painful changes while you coast on through. .

Whatever happens, you have a choice in how you choose to respond to any given situation. If you react without taking control you allow other people or events to take power over your emotions, thoughts and even actions. Self-mastery comes in your ability to take control of your responses both in action and in thought.

Living with Intent provides you with purpose and a direction in your life; you know what you want to achieve and stop at nothing to get it done. Living with intent or purpose is what is needed to achieve your goals. Its the journey—the road to be travelled. When you have purpose and your path is significant and worthwhile to you, your life has meaning. You are living a fulfilled life.

Usually, people are very sure of what they do not want anymore, but have not discovered yet what it is they do want. The question then becomes what do you want to do with the rest of your life that gives you a sense of fulfilment?

Your ideas do not have to be spectacular or even specific. They can be a feeling, longing for something better, a sense of overall direction and destination. It may be something bigger than yourself, a vision that energizes and fills life with interest and challenge. Whatever you choose will be important for expressing who you are and what is of value to you. It will light the path to living with intent.
