Repairing the Rift Between Intention and Action

Intention Action.jpg

Being able to repair the rift between intention and action is process that I’ve been working on as of late. I have a habit where I possess the greatest of intentions but have a propensity to not follow through with the action needed. I hold myself back from acting on my intentions because sometimes I worry about how people will perceive my actions or words and then I become insecure at the thought of rejection or judgement. When I do this, however, I chastise myself and regret being passive in those moments. Recently I’ve been making an effort to act on my intentions and not to let overthinking sway my behaviors and actions. I can’t progress or grow if I don’t change my old behavioral patterns but today I realize that procrastination, passivity and not following through with my intentions have never served me well.
