Setting Intentions Sets You Up For success
September is around the corner. Yay! I just love September! To me, it symbolizes Joy, Growth, Love, Rebirth and so much more. It is the beginning of a new season with a new energy. I welcome it with open arms and an open heart. I believe it is the perfect period to set powerful intentions for the upcoming month. That’s right. Don’t you want your month of September to be memorable? The aim of this inspirational article is to encourage you to develop the habit of setting intentions that would translate into successful projects. Are you ready for it? Let us have a conversation about setting intentions.
Living life with powerful intentions is one essential quality that successful people have in common. Intentions are the fuel that drive people in a particular direction. Driving without intentions is like driving without a road map. Eva Arissani
Are you living life with intention? If yes, you must have noticed how your days flow perfectly even when life happens and when it throws challenges at you. You live your life knowing that dots will connect somehow…and they do, isn’t? If you are not living life with intention, you must have noticed that something is missing. Setting Intentions Sets You Up For success and somehow fills the gaps.
To me, life with intention is knowing where we are going. It starts with an idea, then becomes a dream and later on an intention which directs us to the desired outcome through prayer, action, people and circumstances.
Based on my personal experience as an entrepreneur and social entrepreneur, here is my step by step method to setting intentions that would lead to powerful results :
1- I believe that one has to feel at peace with oneself, one has to know oneself, one has to love oneself and to be in communion with God to live a life with intention. Why am I saying that? It is because until you have made peace with whatever happened to you in the past, you will find it difficult to tap into your true potential. Once you reach a stage of internal peace, you are ready to move on and live your life with intention.
2- The next step is to listen to your heart. Listen to the voice inside your heart. Very often, we get ideas about things we could do and end up killing the voice because we believe they are ‘silly’. What makes them silly? What if they happened to be what you have been praying for? Before you decide to bury an idea, screen it. Ask yourself the following questions : Is it aligned with my way of life, my desires, my expectations, with who I am? Would it make a positive difference in my life, in my community? Would it make me happy? Imagine what it could be…Can you picture it? How does it make you feel?
3- Decide. Once you have chosen an idea / a project, go for it. In your heart, take a decision to see it through. At this stage, do not think of the how. It will come later on. That is when I put it in prayer and ask for God’s guidance. I combine decision and intentional prayer.
Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established. Proverbs 16:3
4- Next, trust the process. Believe that what you have asked for has been granted and receive it. Receiving for me, means acting as if it has indeed been granted. Every single day, have positive thoughts about the project you want to achieve. Actively look for ways to implement your idea /project and as you kick start the project, you will attract divine inspiration, people, circumstances and things that will help you get where you want to be. Before you know it, the project will grow and take shape.
5- Practice gratitude. Say thank you for every progress you make. The more grateful you are, the more growth you will attract to you.
6- Apply yourself to your project. Give it your best shot at all time. Be passionate about what you do. Your passion will make a difference.
That is how I founded my successful company Transcentral Pty Ltd; how I started, along with co-founders, the Foundation She Phoenix Femme Phoenix and attracted powerful people as driven and as passionate as I am. That is also how I am attracting my second book which will be published soon. That’s right good people. I am writing my second book and I know deep inside my heart that it is going a best seller. I am so pumped up about it, it is unbelievable. Extraordinary things are happening to me and this is because of the power of living life with intention.
