Vail Daily Human Hints: Live with conscious intention

VAIL, Colorado –When faced with a choice, it is important to remember that the actual decision does not matter. As long as we remain focused on a specific goal, every choice we make will lead us to where we want to go.

When you are focused on a specific goal, the actual decision you make does not matter. What matters is your conscious intention behind the decision. What do you intend for your self and your future by making one choice over another? What do you want this decision to bring you? How do you want it to change you? Your conscious intention defines the energy behind your decision.

Do not expect the choice to unfold the way you expect. Life rarely brings what we think it will, so the more we let go of our expectations, the less resistance we will feel as the unknown unfolds. The more we cling to our view of what the future should bring, the more resistance we will encounter. Trying to control the way life unfolds is an absolute waste of personal energy. Have specific goals and specific plans to get there, then change your plan as life unfolds.

Your attitudes determine what your life is like. As long as you know that every action, every thought, every decision brings you closer to your goals, the actual actions, thoughts and decisions hold less importance. When you don’t take life so seriously, when you let go of the illusion of control, you’ll have a lot more fun.

Set your intentions and let life unfold. Be flexible with your plan as opportunities arise. Re-evaluate your plan as life progresses. Re-consider your goals as you grow. We are dynamic creatures living in a dynamic world, so we must be open to change.

Set your conscious intentions and make decisions with confidence. Trust your wisdom, and know that the path you choose will bring you closer to your goal. Let go of the outcome and let life unfold. Be joyous every day, in the knowledge that your goal is one day closer.

With this attitude, life becomes an exciting adventure. We can relax in the knowledge that our goals will be reached, while not knowing how life will unfold keeps us stimulated and challenged. We will always grow because we continually re-evaluate our goals, plans, and the means available to us in the moment.
