Are you giving 100% to your energy and commitment?
Have you ever stopped to think about your intentions and why they may not be working out the way you had hoped? One thing that I have discovered is that Intentions + Commitment is what delivers results. No doubt that setting intentions is powerful, but it is your level of commitment that can make all the difference.
This past Saturday morning I attended an event to talk about the power of women entrepreneurship. The focus was what we can do to promote ourselves to become even more successful. Not only as individual business owners but as a group of women entrepreneurs all doing our part to make our corner of the world a better place. It was a really powerful day with so many incredible women from just about every stage of business. Some of the attendees were thinking about going into business, and others who have been in business for awhile. Some were brand new to business, so it was a great mix. There were women in the construction business, fashion, politics and health, which only lead to even more fascinating discussions.
There was one particular conversation that really stuck with me and I couldn’t wait to share it with you.
It’s only when we have that hundred percent commitment to the intentions we set, then we actually see the results that we want to receive.
This one simple idea completely shifted my whole way of thinking for the rest of the weekend. In fact, while looking over my journal this morning, and thinking ahead to what it is I want to accomplish in the month of July, I couldn’t help but ask myself, “What is my commitment to the intentions I have written down?”
There’s so many things that I want to create, but if I don’t have 100% commitment, it’s not going to make a difference or matter. I can have the best intentions in the world and give them about 80% but I’m not going to get where I need to be.
Intentions are powerful, but…
Setting intentions is powerful. But if you do not set the commitment to be 100% for achieving that intention, you are not going get where you want to be. So that’s my question for you guys this week…
Where is your commitment level at? Is it at 100%? What level of energy or you devoting to these goals and intentions? Is that set to 100% or are you dividing your energy between many goals, intentions and tasks? Now knowing exactly where you are in all of this, (because I know you were honest with yourself) how likely are you to achieve the goals and intentions you have set?
If you know right now that you cannot give 100%, then perhaps it is not the time to set these goals and intentions. Maybe there are other things that are just as important needing your attention. Either way now you know exactly where your commitment and energy is, and exactly what intentions you are ready to focus on.
