There is NO power in intention!

Let’s start, “five seagulls are sitting on the dock, one of them decides to fly away. How many seagulls are left?”..”Well…four – right?”. “Actually no, there is still five. Deciding to fly away and actually flying away are two very different things”.

So here it is, despite popular belief to the contrary, there is absolutely no power in intention. The seagull may intend to fly away, may decide to do so, may talk with the other seagulls about how wonderful it is to fly, but until the seagull flaps his wings and takes to the air, he is still on the dock. There’s no difference between that gull and all the others. Likewise, there is no difference in the person who intends to do things differently and the one who never thinks about it in the first place.

Have you ever considered how often we judge ourselves by our intentions while we judge others by their actions? Yet intention without action is an insult to those who expect the best from you. “I intended to bring you flowers, but I didn’t.” “I meant to finish this work on time.” “I was going to be there for your birthday…..”

Extract from the book “The Noticer”‘ by Andy Andrews.

Set your intentions and then show evidence by taking action….flap your wings, take to the air and fly like you intended on doing!
