In my last post, I wrote about setting intentions and how powerful this process can be. I stand by this belief, though there is a second piece required in order to move forward: action. Intentions without actions are useless. In fact, intentions without action may not truly be intentions at all. Let this sink in for a moment. You can set intentions all day long, but if you recognize an opportunity and fail to act, you haven’t moved, changed, or grown as a result of setting the intention. Execution is where the true magic happens.
