It Takes Intention (A Pep Talk)

Where are you headed?

What is your “point B”?

What does it look like to arrive?

What is the lighthouse that beckons you?

What type of life are you trying to live?

What type of person do you want to be?

What type of relationships do you want to have?

What things do you want to accomplish?

Where are you headed?


To get there, you need to make a choice.

You aren’t going to fall into your goals and aspirations.

You aren’t going to accidentally accomplish the things you want.

You aren’t going to drift magically toward the lighthouse.

It takes navigation. It takes a choice. It takes intention.


It takes courage to put yourself out there.

It takes strength to say, “I’m going to do this.”

It’s much easier to be noncommittal.

To just go with the flow.

But you won’t end up where you want to be if you don’t move in that direction.


It may not happen today.

It may not happen tomorrow.

It may be a long journey.

A hard road.

Rough water.


But it can start today.

I don’t know what some of your hopes and dreams are, but I know that the world would be better if you stepped toward them.

What step can you take?
