Setting an intention

Preview of chapter 11 - Setting an intention

I am sure everyone by now knows how to set a goal but do you know how to set an intention?

An intention is what steers your goals, draws in opportunities, and guides your actions.

An intention is an inward approach as it relates to how you want to show up in the world.

While a goal is external and is about what you want to get.

An intention is aligned with who you are becoming and fills the gap by acting as if you are already that person, bringing you closer to the life you want to live.

You can set intentions for your day, week, month, season and year.

Intentions can be one word, one sentence or a paragraph.

To set an intention for your career, use your notes from Your Wants.

Take a look at the list and choose 2 - 3 that really resonate.

An intention has to be positive, it describes how you want to feel and steps into who you are becoming.

For example.

I am excited to begin my new role that meets all my needs. I feel alive knowing I easily found a company that respects me and I get to work with other passionate, like-minded people. I move into my new career experience with a deep sense of peace and calm. I found meaning and purpose in my life and I get to add value to other people’s lives every day through this role.

Write your intention in your journal and on another bit of paper.

Use this as a bookmark or place it somewhere you can see it often, stopping to read it at least once a day.

It’s a nice feeling when you come across an intention tucked away in a book and realise you no longer need to keep repeating it.

This means you have stepped into the person you wanted to become and you are that person.
