You are not alone, intent is hard to get and keep


You are not alone, it is difficult to stay on target when there are so many distractions all around you and within you. I know that life gets in the way of living and when that happens we have to continue to bring our focus back to our target of intent.

Intent – intention – intentionality: is all about our conscious choice to do an activity on purpose. It gives us something to focus on, something to shoot for, and a container for our heart’s desires.

I am a photographer so often when I hear the word focus I think about focusing my viewfinder on the picture I am trying to capture. To get it focused enough so that all the details I want to be are sharp and clear. That is exactly what you have to do when you declare an intent to make changes in your life.

  1. Get clear about what you ‘really’ want
  2. Write it down and make it happen
  3. Find an accountability partner
  4. Show your commitment to your intent daily
  5. Let it be known that you walk your talk
  6. Remember where the mind goes energy flows
  7. Point – focus – shoot

Check your viewfinder and see if you can answer the following questions:

What do you value enough to commit to accomplish no matter what?

What do you devote most of your time and energy to?

Can you hold  your intent long enough to hit your target?


Reply to this post or email me with your intent. Let’s talk.


Come back often for a cup of comfort to go with your cup of coffee!                       




  1. This is the truth. Staying focused in a world full of distractions being thrown at you on a daily!!!

    • We know how well the enemy is at supplying distractions especially those that tug at the heart strings.
