How Do Leaders Transform Intentions into Reality?

Intention leads to behaviors which lead to habits which lead to personality development which leads to destiny. (Jack Kornfield) 

Are you dealing with difficulties in one or several areas of your life? Do you sometimes, or often, feel that you have no control or power over how circumstances or things unfold, and how the course of events occurs in your life?

If you responded with a yes to one of these questions, please continue reading this post. If your life is exactly how you want it to be, you may still want to read this, and reflect upon the message.

To help you realize your true goals, achieve them, and to transform your current life situation into a more rewarding and fulfilling journey, I will share with you a few rather simple techniques/ways of creating the life that you truly deserve, a life filled with creativity, courage, inspiration, joy and passion.

  • Acceptance and awareness

Acceptance and awareness are the first steps towards creating change in your life situation. Before being capable of creating change in the situation, you will have to become aware of it. Without awareness, there is not enough understanding, and therefore no action. Learn methods of increasing your personal awareness level. Then, accept how things are, no matter how difficult or unpleasant the situation is.

  • Breath

Breathing serves as the basic mechanism for us human beings to live, and despite of its importance and its effect upon all our internal and external activity, many people take their breathing for granted and have learned a false way of breathing, meaning that many people, due to a number of reasons, breathe superficially and in a false way. The best way to drastically and quickly improve your health, life, and well-being, is to become aware and conscious about your breathing. Learn how to breathe correctly, and how to influence all your actions and your life in general through breathing. This can be done in a number of ways, and athletes of all kinds especially know the importance of correct breathing before, during, and after an exercise.

  • Divine timing

There is a time for everything, and realizing this especially when things seem extremely challenging will help you keep calm and developing your patience. Many times, not getting what you want may be a great blessing in your life, because divinity has something else in store for you. However, you also have to be ready to take action and not wait your whole life for divine timing to jump in and make things happen for you. It will, of course, but do not sit around at home waiting, letting your life pass by. Instead, get out of your shell and get involved in activities and with people who enlighten your day.

  • Energy

Life is energy. You are energy. Your thoughts, and everything you vibrate and send out to your surrounding and into the Universe, are energy. Make sure to balance your energies, let your energies be positive, thoughtful and always inspiring, because what you radiate into your surroundings will definitely create your reality, and come back to you. Your energies are powerful, so make sure to use them wisely in order to serve both your personal purpose, and the purpose and well-being of others.

  • Focus

In a world filled with distractions, it is easy to get lost if you are not focused. Therefore, learn how to focus in all your activities. Be present in every situation, and focus upon the present moment.

  • Imagination

Everything you can imagine can become a reality. Use your imagination wisely, and do not fear to express your creativity.

  • Law of attraction

You attract what you are, not what you want. Therefore, if you want to attract what you want, you have to become what you want.

  • Meditation

Meditation is the best way to embark upon the journey of transforming your positive intentions into reality, not only because of all the health-factors that regular meditation brings with it, including the facts that regular, daily meditation helps you to improve your breathing, helps you increase your awareness and therefore also consciousness, not to forget about how meditation improves your mental and physical well-being. What could be a better way of improving your life in a drastic way, with quick results when practiced on a regular basis?

  • Nutrients

How you nurture your mind is important, but how you nurture your physical body is equally important. What, when and how you eat and drink do affect your well-being holistically. Together with meditation, focusing upon your eating and drinking habits will help you transform your body, thoughts, and mind, and therefore, your whole life.

  • Positive affirmations

Make it a daily habit to practice optimistic thinking and focusing upon positive affirmations, or mantras, in your life. Inspiration is no rocket-science, and keeping yourself inspired can be done through small habits in your daily life.

  • Repetition

Achieving your true desires, nature, and goals requires for you to repeat, and live your intentions on a regular basis = always. If you cannot change your whole life immediately, start doing so by implementing small changes into your daily habits and way of living. Repeat these at all times, until your new habits have become a way of life. It may seem difficult at first, because we often want to experience quick results, but in order to make huge life changes it is necessary for you to be prepared doing some long-term work, and focus upon making the changes you wish to see in your life, and in your daily habits, permanent ways of living rather than a one-week-cure every now and then.

What Are The Benefits of Meditation:

 

Thank you for reading, commenting, liking and sharing. Thank you also for creating the life you want, and for improving and transforming not only the way you live your life, but also creating and contributing to positive changes in your environment.

Leadership is the wise use of power. Power is the capacity to translate intention into reality and sustain it. (Warren Bennis). 

 

Leader – Change The World

 “No man will make a great leader who wants to do it all himself, or to get all the credit for doing it.”

(Andrew Carnegie)

My humblest thank you goes to the individual who inspired me to write this post – the one who wrote me: “It is foolish to think that one person can change the world”. In a way this person was absolutely right, because one individual out of more than 7,2 billion upon Earth can hardly change the world alone. This is the reality we are all faced with, and the realization of which is part of growing up.

However, in adulthood, many people forget how stay connected with their inner child, the one that inspires them to have faith, and believe in the impossible. Diverging ourselves from our true nature occurs due to a number of reasons, many times because of experiences on our life paths, and because many individuals face a lack of inspiration in and during their lives.

Yet, inspirational leaders often emerge out of the blue, often through challenging circumstances or when scarce resources bring forth the true qualities of an individual. How often has suffering ultimately turned into a wonderful life story? Our world is full of extraordinary transformational leaders, people who have experienced some major life changing events, allowing a deep, personal transformation develop into becoming an inspirational leader. I would like you to watch the following video, where actor and comedian Jim Carrey speaks about Spiritual Awakening, and the fact that we are all one:

Jim Carrey as a well-known actor and comedian is a great example of an inspirational leader who managed to rise above challenging circumstances, transforming these into a positive and successful career, and manifested his dreams by turning them into reality.

One leader alone not being enough to change the world is a fact, but every (aspiring) leader is aware of the power of intention together with action. World-transforming leaders are those who are brave enough to believe that they actually can change the world, not alone, but through setting an example, and inspiring others individuals into becoming world-transforming leaders as well. 

World-transforming leadership starts by changing our personal thoughts, because our thoughts create our reality, and our thoughts lead to our actions, which lead to our everyday reality. Our thoughts and actions also have the power to influence other individuals, which is why it is so important to realize why thinking positive thoughts, and taking positive actions leads to increased positivity in our surroundings. We are all energy, and the energy we personally send out into the Universe radiates back into our lives.

World-transforming leaders are willing to internalize following facts:

  • You cannot change the world alone, but you can change yourself.
  • Your thoughts and actions become your reality, and the energy you radiate/send out is definitely coming back to you.
  • You can always set an example to other individuals, despite of your formal status.
  • Transformative leadership requires authenticity, self-discipline, and assertiveness.
  • Surround yourself with individuals with whom you resonate, people who support you and people who you support.
  • Express gratitude, and be thankful for all lessons in your life. Both the positive, and the less positive.
  • Learn to BALANCE your life. Easier said than done, but do your best! Many (aspiring) leaders work too hard, and too much, resulting in various health problems.
  • Remember, you are a HUMAN BEING (a spiritual being in a human body), not a HUMAN DOING (a spiritual doing in a human body). As energetic as you may be, no smart leader does everything alone. Smart leaders take care of themselves both physically and mentally, because a smart leader realizes that GOOD PHYSICAL & MENTAL HEALTH lead to better results in the long run. It is not egoistic to take care of yourself. It is essential, because people around you do sense your energy. If you are about to lead and transform the world by involving other individuals, you need to be in balance with yourself first.
  • Learn to TRANSFORM challenging situations into POSITIVE outcomes. Let the energy flow freely. Your positive energy radiates onto, and into, other individuals as well.

Finally, I am happy to share with you some quotes about CHANGING THE WORLD:

“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world”. 

(Harriet Tubman)

“Don’t underestimate the power of your vision to change the world. Whether that world is your office, your community, an industry or a global movement, you need to have a core belief that what you contribute can fundamentally change the paradigm or way of thinking about problems”.

(Leroy Hood)

“If Changing the World Signifies Being Foolish, Then I am More Than Happy to be a Fool”
