A powerful intention is like a lighthouse. The lighthouse shines a strong beam of light that acts as a beacon for ships at sea. Following your intention – Taking control of your thoughts, can give you just the direction you need to achieve your personal best. Most people relate intention to goals or the process of goal achievement. This is true, as we must ‘intend’ in order to accomplish. But intention is so much more than simply the road to completing a goal. Intention has a decidedly spiritual side. Even the dictionary has a definition that involves intention as prayer.
