What are you currently in pursuit of? Are you in the pursuit of a career, a relationship, more money, a vacation, a new home? Whatever it is that you’re pursuing, is it something that is going to benefit your joy, peace, happiness or growth?

We can be easily deceived into believing that once we attain that thing that we’re in pursuit of then we can be happy. But that’s a lie because there is always going to be something new that you want to pursue in your life.

Your peace, your joy, your growth, your success has to be intentional and if you’re pursuing something that isn’t benefiting you in the long run then it’s time to make a change.

Perhaps you’ve been in pursuit of a relationship with someone who you know in your heart is not the best for you but you’ve chosen to settle. Maybe others want you to pursue a promotion at work but you’d rather be in pursuit of a becoming an entrepreneur or a more fulfilling career. Or perhaps you’ve been pursuing a vacation but what you really want is a life that you don’t feel the need to take a vacation from.

Possibly, you’re in pursuit of more money but what you’re really looking for is happiness. More money doesn’t equate to your happiness.

What is it that you’ve been pursuing that isn’t benefiting you? In order to become legendary in your life, purpose, vision and spirit, you’re going to have to be intentional on what you decide to pursue.

Be honest with yourself and admit if there is anything that you’ve been doing, saying or thinking that isn’t benefiting your success. Maybe you have to shift gears in your thought life because you’ve been thinking thoughts of fear, shame and guilt that have influenced your self-worth and as a result, the choices you’re making are hurting you and not helping you.

If you don’t believe that you’re worth more, then that’s what will manifest into your life. Instead of waiting for life to change, become intentional in your thoughts, words and actions so that you can build the life that you desire and not one you’ve settled for.

All things are working together for you good, so don’t beat yourself up if you’ve been making some bad decisions. You have the power to change it around NOW! Until you fall in love with you and let the love of you trump the fear that may have held you back then your life will not change.

You have every right to the joy, peace, growth and prosperity that you desire. And it all begins with being intentional in pursuing what makes you not only better but your best. You weren’t created to live in agony, frustration, fear, doubt or shame, you were created to be legendary in all things that you do! You were created to allow your light to shine, you were created with intention and purpose, you were created to experience the best that life has to offer – but will you be intentional about pursuing it?

Only you know the answer to that and I hope that you make the right choice.
