I often wonder why our intentions are not proportional to our implementations!
A good number of times we come in contact with certain opportunities and we quickly imagine beautiful things that we would do to harness them. We generate mind-blowing concepts and ponder upon maneuvers that are presumably irresistible. Lovely intentions!
It could be the packaging of contract documents in a colourful way, presentation of an exquisite gift to a special person, doing the extra-ordinary to show appreciation or continuously bombarding certain people with certain goodies.
Many times these ideas were never shared and even worse, never implemented. They simply remain intentions. Sadly.
Sharing intentions with the right person or group of people is a step to get it started. In life, just like a baby cannot come from either a father or a mother alone, some ideas cannot be succesfuly implemented alone. Always be sure to avoid sharing intentions with those who would either discourage or hi-jack the ideas.
It is popularly said that once there is a will, there is a way. And to a large extent it is true. Often, there’s a desire to do certain things but they never get done even though there was nothing struggling for the required resources to do it. It is caused by a lack of will. Try to find motivation somewhere if that is often the case or the best bet, grow enthusiasm enough to even motivate others. Different people are motivated by different things while some just motivate themselves. Always be highly motivated and no task will be a big deal for you! Your intentions will be implemented.
Another common militating factor against implementing intentions is time insufficiency! Having too many things to do would always leave some undone. Evaluate what consumes the time for things you really consider important and figure-out how to tackle them. It is good practice to have a priority list to avoid substituting the urgent for the immediate.
Resources or funds to implement certain intentions could pose another challenge. And just as is the case with time, money can be distributed according to priority, but the difference is that you can also choose the option of growing your income and expanding your capacity to handle financial issues. That is the better path to tread, even though it would require quite some orientation, re-orientation and implementation time.
People may have also been a hinderance to the implementation of intentions. They share your time, money, attention, ideas, etc as well as theirs with you. You may also have to do a priority list to be sure to allocate appropriate attention to each of your alies, companions, friends, relatives and acquintances as the case may be.
Another crucial idea thief is “mood” many times the emotional state of people determine their decisions and capacity. Anger, happiness, shyness, fear, doubt and the like all have their roles to play in either positive or negative ways.
Be sure to deal with them. Checkout: How to overcome inferiority complex; one of my previous posts, it will help with increasing implementation of intentions.
Laziness and Procrastination are two subtle trickstars that swindle people of their dreams and aspirations. They inject complacence and a lackadaisical attitude into the human system and keep it’s victims perpetually looped in a disillusioned cycle. Always having dreams but never coming to realization, wishing but never accomplishing. “Some other time” they’ll always say “can’t it be done later?” These bandits must be banished at first sight without the bating of an eyelid, allienated and ostrasiced before they spread throughout the system in their cancerous nature! Getting rid of them is getting freed from much. Be alert and ensure that neither of these two culprits find their way anywhere near you.
Stopping mid-way or starting and not finishing is also a sign of something missing from one or all of these points previously mention. We can easily trap that. Always set targets and work with deadlines. That way you can monitor your progress and evaluate your strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats appropriately.
With all of these perfectly in place, you can dream freely, intend freely and also implement freely. No concept is too big for you to handle anymore!
This is just the begining of your journey or quest for true fulfilment!
