Anything that is successfully done begins with intention and in this article you will understand how to identify your true intention.
You will move forward easily once you have it clear in your mind.
Your intention is your reason why you must manifest your desired dream.
The question of “Why” should be your strongest source of motivation and action and it is the one thing you will come back to when faced with the following: challenges, obstacles, experience doubt, procrastination or fear.
It seems that most of our reasons tend to fall under two major categories, which are to either gain power or to empower others.
Though wanting power for yourself usually has negative associations with greed and selfishness.
Wanting power is not a bad thing, but it all depends on what you wish to do with that authority.
The truth is that real power cannot be used with bad intentions and we see that this has been tried by many, but they failed to acknowledge an important element to true power.
The failure of each of these individuals proved detrimental and that failure was in not circulating/share the power with mankind.
Wanting to empower others is associated with being a giver and having a kind heart.
If you believe your motivation is to empower others, ask yourself deeply if that is true for you.
It can be a lie because you may want to appear to be what you believe to be good only not to be bad.
In truth what you believe to be bad isn’t bad at all.
If you have a subconscious belief that power is evil or negative you mind will then reject it as a way of being even though it is in your true nature to seek power.
Since you are the greatest thinker in your own universe, what you believe is perceived to be what everyone believes as well, yet this is a lie, but it is hard to see past it.
As a protective mechanism, you naturally claim what is considered normal and accepted by society’s standards.
Can you see how the lies begin to pile up?
Though empowering others is a very noble intention, it is not a better intention than gaining power.
There must be no judgment associated with empowering yourself.
People once began to define power based on how dictators abused it and as a result, exercising power became something bad.
However, what many people fail to realize is that power is one of two halves of a whole picture and one type of power is bad, while the other is not acknowledged or effectively practiced enough.
You must learn that the power you have access to is unlimited and infinite.
The power, which you are actually equipped with, is in relation to how much you give and get back.
The more you repeat the cycle of giving and receiving, the more you connect with that infinite power.
This is our collective mission in life, to become one with the infinite power.
Giving and receiving is a practice and your mastery of it grows with each conscious effort to activate it in your life.
The more you act in accordance with the cycle of giving and receiving, the closer you become with who you are meant to be.
Believing your intention is to empower others, when it is not an absolute truth that applies to you, doesn’t serve you, but it really impedes your progress towards self-fulfillment.
Many people are so unhappy and unfulfilled and find themselves saying one thing, then trying to do what they say, but it is not their truest desire to do it.
The need for acceptance and love has them deluding themselves from their dreams.
In doubt of their desires ever coming into full fruition, such individuals celebrate the aspirations and achievements of others, believing it will bring them happiness, but it only brings about: grief, bitterness and loneliness.
Saying that you want to help people when really that isn’t your first motivation is dangerous, creating a false reality.
When pursuing goals with this ill motivation, you create false results, if any result at all.
A false result creates a temporary sense of accomplishment, which you may think is happiness and fulfillment until it has faded away.
When it fades, your sense of purpose also fades.
A true result is one that inspires permanent happiness and fulfillment within you, strengthening your sense of purpose and giving you more: drive, desire, and passion in life.
Thoughts of your dream not being accepted by others can be scary, I know, and it is so scary for others that they end up not following their hearts, but go on to following the status quo.
Unfortunately, it is worst thing you can do if you truly want: peace, happiness, and fulfillment.
Yes, living up to your dreams no matter how different they may seem to be is often a challenge, but that’s what makes achieving them worthwhile.
It is the accomplishment of dreams that makes people: great, memorable, and even iconic.
You are also called to be: great, memorable, and iconic!
You have a dream, a desire, and it is time to bring forth your passion to live it.
Empowering others is about education and giving.
It is seeing where people can use support and help in their lives and providing a solution.
Remember to embrace both parts of the paradigm for there isn’t a choice in doing so.
It is a Law of Abundance and if you really desire abundance, you must follow its guidance.
Being true to your intention to empower others guarantees people looking to you to get it.
They will be drawn to your kindness and love and you will want to give more and more.
You will receive great things in return, and not because you expect it, but because this is the nature of being true to you.
If you have ever felt someone has taken you for granted and took advantage of you, it is because on some level you gave only to receive in return.
You did not give just to give, you gave only to get.
When you give just to give, it is a practice of faith that all is well and your just return will be delivered when the universe sees fit to do so.
Your desire to receive in return reveals your lack of trust in the universe returning the energy you have given to another.
You may have created an expectation of what that return will look like and because it did not happen as you expected, you are left feeling disappointed.
You must be flexible.
The exchange must be based on unconditional love.
You must be willing to give without the condition that a person gives back and this is because your return doesn’t have to come from them.
The return often comes from someone else.
The return doesn’t have to be what you think you want, but it oftentimes comes in the form of something you need.
The return also doesn’t come when you want it to come, but when it comes.
You must be open to receiving it via infinite ways from other people at unexpected times.
