If you had to give this time in your life a title, what would it be?
Mine would be “Intentionality”
Ever heard of The Law on Intentionality?
Well, The Law of Intentionality simply states that growth doesn’t “just happen”, growth MUST be intentional.
Now what does this mean? You have to be sure that you are working on yourself and your goals everyday.
Be intentional with your thoughts.
Be intentional with your actions.
Be intentional with your plans.
Be intentional with the company you keep.
I don’t believe in luck; I don’t believe in the phrase: “what’s meant to be will be”.
We make our own luck, and whatever you want you will get in some form or another if you work for it. I also believe The Law of Intentionality differs from person to person. I’m going to share how I break down mine with you all and I encourage you to take with you whatever part(s) resonates with you.
Drive/Desire for Personal Growth and Breaking out of Comfort Zones
I am responsible for my own results
Drive/Desire for Personal Growth and Breaking out of Comfort Zones:
We can’t be scared of mistakes or the anxiety that comes with leaving our comfort zones. If we aren’t constantly pushing ourselves and taking risks, we will remain stagnant. While having a conversation with my mentor, I realized that my personal growth and development were paramount to my success. If I focused solely on growing as an individual in all aspects of my life, my success would ultimately follow suit.
It is so much easier to get things done in an efficient manner if you have a plan. I have two planners: one for school, and one for my personal ventures. At the beginning of each month, I write out exactly what I want to have done by the end of that month. Every week, I write out what needs to happen by the end of that week. Every night, I check off the things that I accomplished that day. If you change your life to live with intention, you quickly realize that no one improves by accident. When you identify and adjust to visions, goals and habits that are necessary for you to live the way you want to live, you realize that nothing is by accident and it doesn't come naturally to us. Instead, we have to understand what we want and implement them into our lives.
I AM RESPONSIBLE FOR MY OWN RESULTS:
If something doesn’t work out, it is no one else’s fault but my own. Even if I trusted another person to handle something for me, I was the one that trusted them. Nothing good comes from excuses. Nothing good comes from wallowing in failures. If something doesn’t work out the way I imagined it working out, it just means it’s time to go back to the drawing board. It’s never any one else’s fault, and there is rarely anything that can’t be tried again. Take a breath, collect yourself, and get back to it.
