I go through phases where I’m very much into one activity or another. With a few exceptions, most things capture my interest for at least a little while. From a summer of Zumba classes to five months of boxing lessons to two years of swimming lessons, usually my interest in an activity also wanes when the schedule becomes inconvenient or the friend that I was going to classes with isn’t able to attend consistently.

Though there are similarities between keeping your body fit and keeping your teeth healthy, there are differences during your regularly scheduled appointments. Whether it’s a few times a week or once every six months, it may seem like all you have to do is show up…but the truth is you have to work a lot harder when you show up to see your personal trainer than you do at the dentist. Sounds kind of ominous, doesn’t it? It makes you wonder why anyone would want to work with a trainer, right?

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.
