Why we do something matters a great deal. More importantly, it affects how much force (energy, sacrifice, effort) we are putting into our actions. Most people are reactive. And when you are coming from that frame of thought, you tend to be less purposeful or in other words, lack intent. Simply put, you are just ‘going with the flow’. That is clearly not a way of succeeding at anything. If you were to just do yourself a big favour and really be clear of the intent of your actions, (or if you do not have any, you might want to make one) you will realise that good things will happen to you. And that is how it works. Get clear on your intent and go get what you have set out to achieve.
