Dreams, Vision, Strategy and Plans, all fail…. if you do not have the right intent!
An intent is the most powerful thing in the universe. Before anything comes your intent. You need to be honest and genuine in declaring your intent and the universe will work towards it to make it happen.
While we all agree to the power of intent, the paradox is we do not follow the same, when we run our organizations.
Leaders have to announce their intent and ensure to make it loud. Once you do that, magic will happen – your teams will be connected with you. They will work collectively and purposefully in making your intent happen!
Leaders normally focus more on achievements, not on their intent – why are they doing what they are doing and most importantly, what is the intent?
Yesterday I was having a discussion with a CEO and his intent was to make substantial revenues to fund his social venture. And my question to him was has he announced this intent with the team? And the answer was no.
Intent sometimes gets mislead by vision, goals. Actually, it’s the statement you make to the universe at a consciousness level and if you are genuine and honest you will for sure unlock the power of the universe.
Sometimes our reasonable self-becomes our dominant personality. And we start putting logics, connecting the dots and overthinking. Actually, all we need to do is answer a simple question, what’s your intent?
Intent comes from your consciousness not from your brain and at that level you are the clearest and transparent.
With intent comes the purpose, which binds everyone together and everyone starts exhibiting ownership and accountability behaviours.
So, announce your intent to your team next when you speak and see the magic unfolds.
