A lot of folks get confused by this term. The easiest analogy to use for setting Intentions is to think about New Year’s resolutions. That is setting Intentions for the new year.
When we put a goal in place, we are setting an intention in our life.
It’s great to set intentions but they are meaningless without action. In working with my clients over the years one of the primary goals I have is to help create daily intentions that lead to a happier healthier life.
Intentions can and should be made for every aspect of our life.
Here are a couple model intentions:
Base intention: I want a closer relationship with my boyfriend/girlfriend/relative
Intention with action: I am going to set aside 30 minutes this week to listen to my boyfriend/girlfriend/relative
Outcome: They are going to feel like we value them, that they are important and that we care about them in a deeper way. This creates a deeper bond and closeness
Base intention: I want to better my opportunity for promotion/raises
Intention with action: I am going to reach out to my boss/supervisor and ask for an evaluation on what I can do to improve my work/production
Outcome: We are going to know where and what we need to focus on to be the best at what we do, our supervisor is going to see we are driven to improve and be great at our job. This will improve our relationship and how they view us.
