Know Your Intention: Prioritize Alignment Over Achievement

Having the wrong intention for the right thing can lead us down the wrong path.

  • As alignment means having your intention aligned with your action. Being aligned means looking for the right thing in the right way. 
  • Positive intention is extremely powerful. You can be doing the wrong thing with the right intention and still get to where you want to be.

You need to stop and think about why you are doing something. Do not let external factors drive your internal happiness. Allowing external factors to drive your happiness means you are putting your happiness in somebody else’s hands.
