THE GREATEST WASTE of untapped resources in this world is good intentions that don’t translate into purposeful, goal-directed behavior.
Therefore, allow me to explain the difference between intentions and results.
On a global scale, there’s a chronic disconnect between intentions and results, as the goals that companies and individuals set for themselves often bear little resemblance to the results that they actually achieve.
The cold, hard, finger in the eye truth is…
Intentions have never once put food on your table, or clothes on your back.
Intentions have never put muscle on your body, nor gas in your automobile.
Intentions have never put money into your bank account, or paid for any of your expenses.
And, intentions have never once helped you to run a marathon, learn the guitar, paint the house, mow your lawn, nor build a successful business.
While good intentions provide a warm and fuzzy feeling, and might even impress your Mother…the ONLY thing that matters in this world is your ability to execute…to take intentional action and drive results.
This truth applies exactly the same way to a sales person’s ability to meet or exceed quota…to a student’s ability to maintain good grades in school…to a Coach’s ability to build a winning record…as well as to a parent’s ability to raise strong, healthy, self-confident children.
We all get measured by the means, as well as the ends of our results.
The sooner you accept the reality that action beats intention…the sooner you start making big things happen in your life and career.
