Intentions are the true power behind any great achievement. It doesn’t matter if it’s personal, professional, spiritual, or psychological. We really need to be looking at ways to be more intentional with our worlds. If we wait for others, we fail. If we procrastinate with intentions, we may lose drive. If we wait to find the motivation, we most likely won’t. To truly be the victor of the life that we want, it’s so important to create the intention of what that will look, feel and sound like in our reality. Don’t wait for it to come, don’t wait for the right time, don’t find one more excuse! Take the initiative to get clear on what you do want and set intentions around that feeling and experience! It’s the momentum of any worthy personal experience.
I like to think of myself as a manifesting master. I have learned over that past 20 years that we are more powerful and in control of the life that we are living than we have any awareness of. What I have found is that we are all capable of creating through the power of deliberate intention, f
ocus and belief! ALL OF US. The biggest thing I observe is that people sabotage themselves with indwelling thoughts and beliefs that they do not actually deserve the life they desire, or somehow they don’t believe that they can actually do it. I have created many amazing experiences and feelings in my world! I have also admittedly created some really hard experiences, as I was not aware of what I was intentionally creating. Lessons learned and movement forward was a great lesson in shifting my attention and intentions! For me, It began with a book, a curiosity, an indwelling feeling and thought frame that I deserved to have the life that I wanted, not one that was being handed to me. I wanted to create a life that felt good, and truly filled me with the feelings of a happy, vibrant and healthy experience. I knew I could, but I came from the background that you have to work hard and you have to settle for some things because that was just the way it was. That thought never set well with me. I was a very rebellious spirit as a youth and I recognize now that it was only because I was not willing to settle into a world view that felt foreign and small, to keep it simple. I am not a woman that could ever be kept in a box with a label. I now know that the way to create the relationship, the career, the body, the feelings, the vibe you desire is all about setting the intention. Of all the tools in the toolbox of manifesting, this is the golden rule. Without an intention, you have no vision, no enthusiasm, no belief, no desired feeling, and you won’t achieve the level of true satisfaction you truly want. If you feel less than happy with your world and feel like you’re stuck, I challenge you to set an intention and truly give 100% to it and see what happens.
Set the intention, first and foremost, for how you want to feel during your day. This alone is life changing. I believe that we emit an energy to the world that sets our day in play. If you’re just waking up and going with the day, who knows how you will feel by noon! So many things can happen that set your tone if you have not decided, committed and are focused on the intention you have set for yourself. If you set the intention to feel happy, and you start the day with this vibration flowing through you, you will make coffee with vigor, you will see the birds and have a reason to smile, you will make breakfast with joy, feeling grateful for the opportunity to do so. You will begin to find that your brain begins to process the world differently and find that you are feeling more happy feelings during your day. Seriously, it’s this easy. On the other hand, if you do not commit to this intentional feeling, I can guarantee that you may find simple frustrations that can drive you to find the next one. Before you know it, you are certainly not in the happy space and your day just takes shape around the simple things that may have swayed your attention. Listen, life is not perfect, but you can set your intention to stay higher than the lower disturbances that come your way. We do not have to accept the invite to every negative feeling or experience that arrives. This is the truth!
When discussing any life goals or changes that are coming up in your world, set the intention for the highest and most aspiring experience that could take place within those intentions! If you want a new job, and you just sit around frustrated with the job you are in and find yourself complaining about the job, thinking it will never change and feeling frustrated about it, chances are you will not find another job that matches the desired feelings you do want because you didn’t consider the fact that your unhappiness is keeping you from attracting the job that could truly be fulfilling and joyous. Why? Because you allowed yourself to become more intune with the frustration, rather than recognizing the frustration, and then intentionally setting the focus on what you do want! When you do this, you are making the commitment to finding the good about where you are, while intentionally aligning with what you do want, which activates the energy and actions to get what you do desire! Remind yourself during your day of what you do want, where you are headed, and do not give up on that goal!
YOU CAN ACHIEVE ANYTHING YOU SET YOUR MIND TO.
You have to begin to focus more on your happiness than on your frustrations. You must intentionally get in the drivers seat of your life’s experiences. In a world of content that tells you that mediocracy is ok, find your way back to feeling good about life! It’s easy to settle for what comes. Find your way into intentional living! Find the feelings of joy and enthusiasm and find your oomph again! Life is happening at an incredibly fast pace these days. It is so important that we take the time to set an intention for the life that we want. One of the most common things that I see with people who are struggling in any area of their life is that they don’t know how they got to the point of frustration. I think the reason “it just happens” is because the intention for your life and your desired level of happiness was not set, and this makes it easy to adapt to a version of life that just shows up. Stop that! The way to change this reality is to set powerful intentions!
I challenge you today to find one word that describes how you want to feel. Write it down, put it on your phones lock screen, paste on the bathroom mirror, put it at your desk, on your car dash, and use the word as your mantra. Remind yourself constantly that you are choosing to feel this certain feeling and that you have the right to feel this way. Choose your experiences, your conversations, your food, your clothes, your music, and anything that comes up in life that you have a choice about and align with the vibration of the feeling that you desire to experience. It’s so powerful and I promise it can be the one of the simplest and easiest things to do to begin to direct your life on the path of true happiness.
Remember this, my friends,
You either master your mind, or your mind WILL master you.
Be the victor in your life, let go of the victim role. Believe in you, and know that you have unrealized potential that is waiting to be recognized and acknowledged. Tap into it by turning your personal power on! Setting intentions is truly the foundation of realizing, experiencing and fulfilling your potential! I believe in you! I hope you do, too.
