“Tomorrow, I’m going to ________.”

How do you fill in that blank? Are your intentions to wake up earlier? Go for a jog before work? Start looking for more fulfilling work? Spend more time with your family?

No matter how much we “intend” to do something, statistics say that 60-70% of the time, we don’t follow through.

It’s called the Intention Behavior Gap. And if you really want to create change in your life, you have to find a way to close that gap.

Today on The Bridge to Fulfillment, Blake explains why we so often fall into this trap, and why it feels so hard to create a bridge between inaction and change.

In this episode, you’ll learn how to turn good intentions into great results by aligning

actions and resources in order to accomplish your goals. You’ll learn how to create movement and ride on the heels of that momentum, rather than blaming your circumstances or making excuses. And, if you find that you don't have the tools or knowledge, or you don't know what the right next steps are to create the change you're looking for, then the first step becomes identifying who can help you and reaching out.

Nothing will change until we do. The power is in your hands.

Favorite Quotes:

  1. When you're thinking about creating change, it doesn’t just take energy. It takes overcoming very normal biological fears of the unknown.
  2. The longer we sit in either fear or procrastination, the more likely we are to stay there.
  3. We create our own suffering by holding on to things we don't want.
  4. The only barrier in life is the one you believe. And often, that barrier is actually you.
