Q&A: Why Intentions Fail?
Yesterday my ex-beau texted that he was tired and wishing he was going to bed instead of bowling, but he was just going to get it over with.
He went on to bowl his best score of the year.
That was right after Blake told one of The Voice contestants that, “You started singing better when it crossed your mind that this isn’t gonna happen.”
(She got two last second chair turns.)
Which reminded me of this question I’d just read from a blog reader:
Tell me, if you can, why do I find that when I intentionally wish for a good day and say to the Universe, “Please give me a good day today” I end up having a not-so-good-day.
But when I let it be and not wish/ask specifically for a good day, chances are the day will be good.
What’s up with that?
Yeah, what is up with that?
Why is it that ‘not trying’ works so well for us sometimes? How could that be more powerful than getting deliberate and conscious about what we want?
Surely it can’t be that the best way to get what we want is to give up …?
See you in the comments …
