What is you INTENT?
So I asked yesterday about determination. One way to get determination is to have intent.
I got this website from Granny Mountain about Intent - My Path to Wellness.
So one important thing is our intent. What do you intent to do today?
I am going to be painfully honest here. I looked at Molly's website and she has lost 40 pounds! I wrote her and she is the nicest lady by the way and she wrote me back with all the information. Now the problem is this - I want to lose weight - but do I intent to lose weight right now?
Honestly no, I have so much going on here - (see I have an excuse) - and it's the holidays (another excuse) and my husband lost his job 3 weeks ago (and I am a stress eater - another excuse) so therefore while I want to lose weight I must want to eat even more. That is what my true intent is.
So I am going to do a loftier goal - one I can do. I don't drink cokes every day, but I do enjoy them once in awhile. So until the end of the year I am giving up cokes. Now that is just one tiny little change - but according to a CD I'm listening to - The Slight Edge - it will eventually make a difference. And to tell you the truth - right now - I intent to do it and I will. If I took on a bigger goal - I might not. So one little goal at a time. My friend Sue did that - all she did was look at the labels of the food she bought - I can do that too! What I'm saying here is for some - they can look at the big picture and do it. I can't. When I look at the big picture is can overwhelm me.
So I am going to do it in baby steps.
What is your intent?
Happy birthday to Lawrence Harvey Zeiger - do you know who that is?
He is recognized in the United States as one of the premier broadcast interviewers. He has conducted some 40,000 interviews with politicians, athletes, entertainers, and other newsmakers. He has won an Emmy Award, two Peabody Awards, and ten Cable ACE Awards.
Still don't know?
On September 10, 1990, while on The Joan Rivers Show, Rivers asked him which contestant in the Miss America pageant was "the ugliest." He responded, "Miss Pennsylvania. She was one of the 10 finalists and she did a great ventriloquist bit. The dummy was prettier." He was a judge for the September 8, 1990 pageant. He later sent Miss Pennsylvania, Marla Wynne, a dozen long-stemmed roses and a telegram apologizing for saying she was the ugliest contestant in the pageant that year.
If you guessed it was Larry King - you'd be correct.
