Are you living out of intention?
Or out of reaction?
When we live out of intention, we are in charge and we have direction.
When we live out of reaction, we are at the mercy of the world to decide what we should or should not do. In other words, we don't have direction when we give power up to others or to triggers. And we are surrounded by triggers: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, the doorbell, the commercial on TV, that influential person in our lives, that idea, it goes on... and it is happening all around you. We have direction, control and authority over our lives when we can stay close to our intentions. Our wishes and our goals: Our direction.
Here is the insight: if you are living your day-to-day ruled by whatever triggers are around you and only out of triggers that draw you into a million distractions (which all seem just as exciting or important), then we are forever at the mercy of the external world. Like floating in an ocean. At the very worst, when we want to accomplish goals and we are simultaneously living our lives predominantly in reaction to our surroundings, we are floating. Floating means that you are not in charge of your life and that you go where the wind blows you. Which isn't anywhere in particular. In fact, this is a recipe for feeling down on yourself, feeling like you are going nowhere and feeling low on your self-esteem and your confidence continuously suffers.
You cannot afford to lose any confidence if you want to feel good and accomplish your goals. In fact, self-esteem, self-confidence and self-efficacy are like fuels that you must find ways to recuperate, refill, daily and hourly if need be, in order to stay grounded and motivated and on track.
When we find ways to stay close to what you intentionally choose, decide, want - out of your day, your relationships, your goals and dreams - then we have direction, and instead floating aimlessly, we are in charge of where we are headed and the way opens.
