Be clear on what you want. If you’re starting a business, taking a new job, learning a new skill, or beginning a relationship, state clearly to yourself what you’re looking for.
What level of performance are you hoping to reach? Stay realistic, but not pessimistic. What do you want? Be clear with the universe about what your intentions are. Be as specific as you can be.
If you’re on the dating scene, what are you looking for? Some fun? A spouse? Be clear and specific about what you want.
After you’ve focused and clarified your intentions, then let your intentions go. Sometimes in life we can’t get what we want. Other times, we can. And sometimes the journey to getting there is full of twists and turns, much more of an adventure than anything we could have planned.
Besides, the clearer we can be about what we want, the easier it will be to recognize and enjoy it when it comes our way.
God, help me be clear with you and myself about what I really want. Then, help me let go of my intentions and surrender to your plan.
