Normally this sentence pronounced a future father-in-law talking to a candidate for son-in-law. Dr. John Mcdougall follows long-standing procedures to achieve this success. But in reality is a phrase that we repeat ourselves frequently to us if we want to have more complete, harmonious and happy lives. There is a big difference between having clear our intention when we do something, or do not have it, but we don’t talk about it very often; so let’s see what supposes to have clear intentions. Putting our intention into something means having well defined the objective we pursue this. For example, if one gets to study, you can have the intention to pass a test, the intention to learn, or both. Also can be simply sit to study because it is what touches make at that time, i.e., to do so without intention. At the moment that is about to begin, the mere fact of thinking by a few seconds in their purpose and have clearly defined, will make a big difference in the outcome, and in the process.
It’s like firing a blunderbuss without having pointed to before. Or how to begin a trip without consulting a map and without being sure of the way or, even worse, of where we want to go. The lack of a clear intention is way faster and safer to get to the disaster. Every day we do a number of things, many of them automatic, like going to the gym or to work, do the shopping or dinner, chat with friends, even make love. When I say automatic not I say that they are neither mechanical nor without meaning, simply infer that because they are habitual, we forget to consider its purpose. The importance of these acts lies in its frequency, and most are related to basic aspects, such as survival or health care. When we are aware of the intention that lies behind them, get relevant benefits; among others: 1.-the results are usually better.
