Growth Tools - Practical tools for meaningful growth

Focus Your Intentions Regularly

“The successful man is the average man, focused.”
-- Source Unknown

"Most people are so busy knocking themselves out trying to do everything they think they should do, they never get around to do what they want to do."
-- Kathleen Winsor

When we take the time to set an intention, even if it seems trivial, we are consciously and deliberately choosing what we want for ourselves. And when we clearly set an intention, our conscious and subconscious minds mobilize to help us meet that goal.

Build a practice of starting each morning with a clear intention. Before you even get out of bed, anchor a clear intention in your mind for what you want from the day. Emotionalize it. Symbolize it. Visualize it. Energize it.

Also play with setting short-term intentions throughout the day to focus the power of your mind. Ask yourself often, “What do I want now?” Consider the possibilities! You might intend to:

  • complete a task quickly, easily and beautifully.
  • enjoy a meal.
  • stay safe and relaxed on the way to work.
  • really be present to someone you’re with.

Once you discover the power of this process, you’ll be inspired to use it often.

What can you do today that will move you one step closer to your personal goals? Own your power to choose to meet your own needs. After all, we can better help others when our own needs are met.

“Every choice moves us closer to or farther away from something. Where are your choices taking your life?”
-- Eric Allenbaugh

“Only one thing has to change for us to know happiness in our lives: where we focus our attention.”
-- Greg Anderson
