Everything that happens in our lives begins with an intention.
For example, we wake up in the morning and we have the intention to eat breakfast (or some of have the intention to skip breakfast) Then we have the intention to go to work and at work we have other intentions and the rest of our day is filled with intentions.
Intentions gives us purpose.
Through intentions we achieve our goals, desires and dreams. Intentions are very important to understand what you want from life.
In comparison to goals, they are more emotional. Goals need to be smart, realistic, achievable, and time bound. It is all the intentions that you set around your goals that help you to achieve them.
First we start with a dream and then we set the intentions and then it becomes a goal.
Setting intentions is the starting point to achieving a dream. There is a creative power behind an intention. You know there is something that you want to achieve and by setting intentions around that dream it can stir your creative juices. Intentions give you ideas about things you could do to move yourself towards that dream and make it a reality.
Intentions can also have a global reach
Intentions can also have a global affect. Imagine if we all set good intentions. What if we all set the intention to be mindful through the day? To be present for others, what change would happen in our society just through that intention?
So by intending to be more mindful, by intending to be more present for the people around you in your lives, you can change the vibration in your community which changes the vibration in your country, which can even change the vibration in the world.
By setting that intention you can make bigger changes than yourself. Intentions can be very powerful for your relationships, money, finances, and love. Setting positive intentions will bring you a much greater reward to these aspects of your life.
How about setting some positive intentions around exercise? Instead of sitting around saying oh I am supposed to go to the gym but I am too tired. Give a positive spin on your intentions and that can make a big difference in your life.
Create an action plan to turn your hopes and dreams into reality
Have you heard the expression, ‘hell is paved with good intentions’? Meaning all these things that people intended on doing but never actually do. It is one thing to have a good intention it is another thing to follow through on your good intention.
It is important to create an action plan to make sure you achieve the intention that you set out for yourself.
