Achievement is not accidental. It’s intentional. Something powerful happens when we firmly declare our intention. In 1962, John F. Kennedy declared, “We will put a man on the moon, and we will bring him back by the end of this decade.” There was no room for debate when he made his claim. Why ask for permission? Permission invokes timid action. Why preface the statement with hope? That’s wishful thinking. Why leave any room in our mind for the possibility that it won’t happen? That gives us an excuse. Let us declare our intention and leave no room for a failed outcome today.
