And there's five core skills that you have to develop. The first one is communication, and you've got to communicate not only to yourself, but also to the world. That you won't the second one's going to take curiosity. You got to ask questions and don't live in assumptive statements. The next one is creativity. When you lack resources, you gotta be resourceful. And then there's confrontation probably the most important out of all the five, because you're going to have to confront some things in your life, but in a productive. And if you want to have more, do more, be more than say no more. Let's roll out what today's episode. They say the road to hell is paved with intentions, intentions alone, maybe, but the road to maximizing your potential is paved with intention. And actions. See intentions has a couple of definitions. One of the definitions is it's an act or instance of determining mentally upon an action or result and see this where most people stop. Mentally, they want the result, but they take no action, but here's the other definition. And the one I liked best intentions is a purpose or an attitude toward the effect of one's actions. Or conduct effect with an E what's effect effect is it's the power of one's actions toward an end result. So let me read it to you again, the definition that I like of intentions, it's a purpose or an attitude toward the effect, the power of one's actions or conduct see an attitude is the influence. Right? So when I have the attitude, the influence. I have influence over my action to get the desired result. Actions must align with intentions. I mean, think about it. Most people have the intention to lose weight, but their actions say otherwise, This is where they say the road to hell is paved with good intentions. But if you want change, you're going to have to go through hell to get the desired result, but you'll get it with intentions aligned with action. For me to lose weight, the first two weeks was hell, I had to go through that hell because I had the intention of losing. 40 pounds by the time I turned 40, #40for40 was my theme and I had seven months to do this. So it meant that I had to say. No to every indulgence that I normally said yes to, I had to say no to the seafood platters. I had to say no to the appetizers. I had to say no to the beer. I had to say no to the Popeye's chicken. I had to say no to gumbo. I had to say no to all that. And the first two weeks man was, oh, it was hard because everybody else seemed to be enjoying life. But I had to lose the weight. So I went through hell but strangely, because my actions lined up with my intentions. My new identity began to take shape. And as I did it all I had to do. Was reinforced that identity every day. When Matthew McConaughey heard that casting director, Don Phillips was in town, he went there with the intention to let them know I want the role. Now this was a Matthew McConaughey. That was anup and comer. He wasn't the Matthew McConaughey that you know today. And he said there was no way I was about to go and have drinks with his man and not express my intention that I wanted the role. And it took five hours before the timing was there. Where he could let Don Phillips know I want the role, same thing. When he was cast for John Grisham's book, that was turned into a movie, a time to kill Matthew McConaughey was cast in the movie, but he was not cast as the lead role. He was young. He was just starting to make a little name for himself. But when he talked to Joel Schumacher, the director, he expressed his intentions. I think I need to be the lead role. And he said, I knew before I even said it, what Schumacher was going to say, Schumacher was going to say no. But Matthew McConaughey said, Hey, anyway, Hey, I should be the lead role. And Schumacher said exactly what he thought he was going to say no way, but things began to take shape on the other side. Of Matthew McConaughey's expressed intentions. So even though he was shot down and said, there's no way you're going to get this role. Things happen beyond his control. It, you can't even explain. And Matthew McConaughey got the lead role. But what if he would have never expressed his intentions? He wouldn't ever got the shot because he wouldn't have been thought of see, sometimes your intentions are the thing that make everything else bubble up. And these are when you're just so happens. Just so happened to come about in your life. You expect people to know what you want. It don't work that way. You got to let it be known. You got to say, Hey. I want this. And even if it's a no way you say, Hey anyway, and you act accordingly, Most people lack conviction with their intention. But if you're convicted, well, that means that you're sentenced and you got to do your time until you achieve the results. I've had salespeople tell. Hey, I want to be in management and I'm like, for real, why am I so surprised when they say that? Because their actions don't line up with your intentions. I heard what you said, but I've never seen it. So why would I even think that you were even interested. Name any 13 year old, who doesn't want to be a professional athlete. They all want to be pros, but if their actions don't make them best in the school, best in the state, best in the country, you'll never end up being one of the best in theworld. Intentions actions with conviction are everything. So there's a couple of things. I want you to be mindful of. Number one, express your intentions, let it be known. Don't pull your punch. And if you think it's stupid, if your tail is tucked in between your legs, then you lack conviction. Just put it out there, but put it out there isn't enough, which leads me to my second point. When you express your intentions, take action. Even if you don't know how in the hell you're going to get there. Lace up and head in that direction anyway, because you'll pick up clarity. You'll strengthen your convictions you'll be more knowledgeable. And develop connections along the way I'm pulling for you. Let me know how your progress is going.
