Is today Friday? Oh hell no! It just got real! Today, we continue to talk about the blessings of intentional living.
3. Intentional living challenges us to find creative ways to achieve significance- I like the story that the author gives where he says that when he was in college, he took a creativity test that told him he was below average in creativity. And yet, he has traveled the world, given thousands of messages and written dozens of books that have been well received. How was he able to make the change?
“When I became intentional at what I wanted to do, I became the creative spirit to overcome barriers and make up deficiencies.”
-Intentional living always has an idea.
-Unintentional living always has an excuse.
-Intentional living fixes the situation.
-Unintentional living fixes the blame.
-Intentional living makes it happen.
-Unintentional living wonders what happened.
-Intentional living says, “Here’s something I can do.”
-Unintentional living says, “Why doesn’t someone else do something?”
Intentional living is all about knowing what you want. When we really do know what we want, our doubt-filled minds go from thinking, “Can I”, to “How can I?” I can not even begin to tell you how much this principle of living intentionally has helped me to take my life to a whole new level. I have said before that people tell me all the time that they are sitting around and waiting for their life’s purpose to smack them in the face, and then they will run with it. Nope! Not going to happen. You have to be searching “intentionally” for life’s purpose for it to smack you in the face.
“When you know what you want and can’t find what you need, you must create what you need, so you can get what you want.” You want to know what your reason for being on this earth is, go find it. Search high and low until it rests comfortably in your heart and mind. As Alex Zblewski would say,
“If it is to be, it is up to me.”
