The Perils of Positive Thinking

It's no secret, setting intentions alone does not manifest change. Sending your intentions out into the universe is a one way conversation.

Good things may come to those who wait, but those things taste like Guinness or ketchup.

Intentions matter, of course. Set them with care and integrity. But destiny rewards pursuit. You must step into possibility to make change happen.

Here are three questions you can ask yourself after you set you intention that will encourage you to lean in and leap into worthwhile efforts.

  • "What's it for?" What are you aiming at and why?
  • "What's now?" Frame yourself and your situation in a way that creates choices.
  • "What's next?" Assess your choices and decide which next small step will move you the furthest and fastest into the difference you wish to make.

And then... Take that step.

Rinse and repeat.

Let's keep flying higher together!
