“The only way that we can live, is if we grow. The only way that we can grow is if we change. The only way that we can change is if we learn. The only way we can learn is if we are exposed. And the only way that we can become exposed is if we throw ourselves out into the open. Do it. Throw yourself.”
― C. JoyBell C.
Are you growing? Are you developing your profession? Are you investing in yourself? Are you becoming more than you were yesterday?
Many people leave out their own growth in the quest to live a happy life and find that working on all the other things while important doesn’t always lead to a happier life. Personal growth in some shape or fashion does help create change, change towards something better.

Intention meets action
“Live with intention. Walk to the edge. Listen hard. Practice wellness. Play with abandon. Laugh. Choose with no regret. Appreciate your friends. Continue to learn. Do what you love. Live as if this is all there is.” Mary Anne Radmacher
How valuable a quote is that written by Mary Anne Radmacher. Living with intention is important but taking action on the intention is what will yield real results.
Intention + Action = A full life.
Intention is about setting goals and creating plans and without action is nothing more than a plan and a goal.
A full life doesn’t always mean a life filled with only joy, it does mean that your life is crafted by you. If your life is crafted and built to achieve your deepest longings that in one sense is a measure of success.
Create an intention map. What areas of your life do you want to do better in? What areas do you think are lacking attention? Score each area from 1-10 (1 = Low, 10 = High).
Family, Relationships, Career, Finance, Health, Service, Friends, Self
Is your life in balance? What do you intend to do about it?
