Business Strategist Dr. Myron Golden said that "intention always follows disruption", and this statement truly resonated with me. It made me reflect on how this concept has played out in my own life, particularly in my career and entrepreneurial pursuits. Whenever we set out to achieve something, we often hope that things will go smoothly and without any major obstacles. However, this is rarely the case. In fact, achieving our goals often requires a significant disruption in our thinking, habits, and overall lifestyle.
Let's consider the common goal that many people have of getting in shape. Initially, we may feel excited and motivated to start our journey towards a healthier lifestyle. We may create a detailed plan, join a gym, and stock up on healthy foods. However, as we start to put in the work, we may encounter challenges such as soreness, fatigue, and cravings for comfort foods. At this point, we may begin to doubt ourselves and wonder if the effort is worth it.
But it's important to remember that these challenges are all part of the process. Disruption is necessary in order for us to change and grow. Our bodies need to experience discomfort in order to become stronger, and our minds need to break free from old patterns in order to form new ones. It's during these difficult times that we must stay disciplined, persistent, and focused on our intention.
When we struggle, it's also helpful to remember that God is always present and ready to provide for us. We wouldn't have had the thought or desire to pursue our goals if we weren't capable of achieving them. All we need to do is trust the process, stay committed to our intention, and be patient. Over time, our efforts will pay off and we will see our goals become a reality.
So, the next time you encounter a disruption on your journey towards your goal, remember that it's a natural part of the process. Embrace the discomfort and keep pushing forward. With determination, discipline, and faith, you can achieve anything you set your mind to.
