59 Intention Quotes To Help You Back Up Plans With Hard Work

Intention

Life is full of decisions, choices, and intentions. Most of the things we choose to do and the decisions we make are intentional. We do them because we intended to. It's not by accident or mistake.

Intentions can be very powerful. They will push you to do something you otherwise wouldn't do. If it's something you want bad enough, you work hard to get it. The simple feeling of wanting it is your biggest intention.

However, sometimes we will have intentions but still not do anything about them. A good example is when we plan things. We may have great plans with outlined steps. But if we don't act on them, they will remain to be intentions in our heads or on paper.

Hard work should go hand in hand with your intentions. Intentions will give you the passion to achieve but will not do the work for you. Always back up your intentions with actions because that's the only way to succeed in what you want.

If you are trying to live an intentional life, remember to stay true to your values. Intentional living is fulfilling and satisfying. You are able to live according to the standards you want. You set the rules for yourself and choose to follow them.

Avoid the distractions around you because they could easily make you lose focus. Know what you want. Start being intentional the moment you wake up to set the right pace for the rest of the day.

Make small changes instead of shifting your whole life all at once. Trying to change everything at once can overwhelm you and make you give up. Set goals and intentionally work on achieving them.

Here are intention quotes to set the pace for you and to remind you that the smallest deeds are better than the greatest intentions. Read on!

If you keep going backwards with the same people that God has intentionally removed from your life, you will continue to stay stuck. There is no joy in being confused and unhappy.

I have come to believe that we do not walk alone in this life. There are others, fellow sojourners, whose journeys are interwoven with ours in seemingly random patterns, yet, in the end, have been carefully placed to reveal a remarkable tapestry. I believe God is the weaver at that loom.

People with the best intentions will often give you advice on why you shouldn’t take a risk because of what could happen. While some of what they say may be true, you should never allow them to get their negative anchors into your mind because, like them, you too will begin to sink. Next time this happens, throw them a life-line, and ask them what is good about their situation.

When someone you love dies, you are given the gift of "second chances". Their eulogy is a reminder that the living can turn their lives around at any point. You’re not bound by the past; that is who you used to be. You’re reminded that your feelings are not who you are, but how you felt at that moment. Your bad choices defined you yesterday, but they are not who you are today. Your future doesn’t have to travel the same path with the same people. You can start over. You don’t have to apologize to people that won’t listen. You don’t have to justify your feelings or actions, during a difficult time in your life. You don’t have to put up with people that are insecure and want you to fail. All you have to do is walk forward with a positive outlook, and trust that God has a plan that is greater than the sorrow you left behind. The people of quality that were meant to be in your life won’t need you to explain the beauty of your heart. They already understand what being human is - a roller coaster ride of emotions during rainstorms and sunshine, sprinkled with moments when you can almost reach the stars.
