Last week we discussed the power of intent and how it can transform your thoughts into tangible success.
Today I’m going to take things a step further and show you how to use the power of intent to finish out 2015 with a bang (and start the new year off right). Take notes if you feel so inclined, this is going to be some great information to use over and over again!
The key to a balanced life is intention.
We already know that setting intentions will transform your life and business so let’s get down to the nitty gritty.
Who should set intentions?
Every. Single. Person. Well, except those people who don’t want to see results or live life to its fullest potential.
When do I set intentions?
Great question! And the answer is simple: all the time! Before you head into a a big meeting, take calls with clients, make dinner, spend time with friends or family, whatever task you’re about to embark on.
Don’t just set intentions for your big picture dreams, use them everyday. Nothing is too trivial, because all of those small intentions act as stepping stones toward the big important “things” in your business and overall life.
Practice makes perfect right? So with all that warming up you’ll be an intentional machine in no time.
What do I do?
First, take a few deep breathes and ask yourself these three important questions:
- Who do I want to be right now in this moment?
- How do I want to feel?
- What is the perfect/ideal/most amazing outcome or result that I want?
Remember intentions are flexible and adaptable. They are built to last, unlike a goal which is something that can be completed/finished and easily derailed by unforeseen circumstances.
Still not sold on the Power of Intent?
Using the power of intent in your business and everyday life WILL cultivate success and its scientifically proven.
The 2007 book, The Intention Experiment by Lynne McTaggart, explores the actual science behind the power of intent. Her in-depth research clearly demonstrates an undeniable fact: thought is a thing that affects other things. Mactaggart pulled together decades of research conducted at laboratories and universities including Princeton, MIT and Stanford.
“Intention is a directed thought, a thought aimed at something or someone with the goal of influencing something physical. It is using your consciousness to change something in physical reality. Intention manifests itself as electrostatic and magnetic energy. Thoughts are ‘things’ too.”
~Lynne McTaggart, author The Intention Experiment
I’ll leave you with this invitation to be intentional about one small thing today. Simply shift your thinking. Decide who you want to be, what you want to create or accomplish and how you want to feel in a situation. Your result are in your hands – its that simple!
The little actions you take now will serve as rock solid foundations of success in 2016.
