Setting Intentions

Daily intentions can change your life.

Everything that happens in our lives begins with an intention. When we set an intention, it gives us a sense of purpose. It inspires and motivates us to act and achieve our goals

Intentions are the map towards achieving our goals

Daily intentions can provide you a road map and they are the reminder for how you want to live each day. Giving intention to positive choices daily can change your life and the lives of the people around you.

Intentions aren’t goals

Don’t confuse intentions with goals. Intentions are about who you want to be, how you want to behave in this world and how you choose to interact with others. It’s about a way of thinking and it is more emotional verses the dry goals which are to be measurable, realistic and achievable.

Intentions are a positive focus on life

Getting out of your head with intentions. By stating your intentions you can take your mind off of the limitations and perceived problems you are facing. It will give you something to focus on and thus create a positive impact on your life.

For example, if you state that you intend to feel good today will be much more positive than if you state that you wish to feel better. 

Setting the intention to be mindful throughout your day will open your eyes to the world around you. Setting the intention to observe the small wonders that happen in the world can create a shift in your perspective at that moment. It allows you to also appreciate what is going on around you.

Setting intentions can have a global impact

Small changes can have a large global impact. If you set the intention to make a difference in this world it can open your mind to opportunities and ideas that will guide you to make a difference in your community or even a larger surrounding. Saying out loud that you intend to be part of the global change for a better society will already empower you to do more.

Intentions are our dreams and desires

Setting Intentions is the starting point of a dream. They are the creative power that can fill all our needs for relationships, money, spirituality, love etc…

“You are what your deepest desire is. As your desire is, so is your intention. As your intention is, so is your will. As your will is, so is your deed. As your deed is, so is your

destiny.” Taken from the classic Vedic text Upanishads

Set the Intention then make the action plan

Setting intentions won’t work if you don’t make an action plan. How will you make them happen? Remember the saying “Hell is paved with good intentions” or how about your teenage child who he was ‘gonna’ clean his room but never got around to it. The intention to clean it but without the plan of action if never happened.

What massive action steps have you planned to put you in the direction of your dreams and goals?
