Your Intention Creates Your Reality

I am lucky to have a group of girl friends that I chat with almost every day on a group site. We've been chatting for years... discussing just about every topic imaginable, from our personal lives (daily highs and lows, families, health, and careers) to politics and the environment. We all have different perspectives and ways of thinking, but we all appreciate each other's opinions and viewpoints - which makes the discussions so valuable. A couple of days ago, one of my friends shared a quote that I've been thinking about ever since,
"Your intention creates your reality."
The definition of the word intention (noun) from is,
  1. An act or instance of determining mentally upon some action or result.
  2. The end or object intended; purpose.
Also listed is the definition according to the American Heritage Dictionary,
  1. A course of action that one intends to follow.
  2. An aim that guides action; an objective.
I googled the quote to find the author and found it along with this -
"The secret to changing your life is in your intentions. Wishing, hoping and goal setting cannot accomplish change without intention. What is needed is a shift from the inert energy of wanting to the active energy of doing and intention. Realize that all of your accomplishments, even those of which you are not so proud, have come about as a result of your intentions. Your relationships are a reflection of what you have created with your intentions. Your financial picture is the result of your intentions. When you know that you're in charge of your intentions, that they originate with you, then you will also come to know that you are in charge of your entire world and always have been."
~ Dr. Wayne W. Dyer
This rings true for me. I have so many intentions (living healthier, being kind to the Earth, strengthening my relationships, etc.), the secret is mentally determining how to get to the end result, and taking action. Just something to ponder... I'd love to hear your comments!
