Intentions or Resolutions?
With all the buzz around setting New Year’s Resolutions, I’m way more curious about something else.
(And no, it’s not if you’ve seen Star Wars yet…)
I’m interested in something more powerful and game-changing.
I want to know how you want to live and who you want to be. Not just what you want to do in the next year.
As we launch into 2016, I invite you to take a moment to get really clear on what you desire for the year ahead.
While you may have a list of New Year’s Resolutions similar to these, intention setting is very different. Your intentions are the mindful choices you make to think, act, and be a certain way. They are grounded in who you need to be in order to accomplish what you want to do.
Your intentions help you create a life that you’re proud to live by being the person you want to be.
Resolutions focus on actions. Intentions focus on attitudes. Tweet This
Before you can make any headway on your list of resolutions and personal goals, you first need to be grounded in positive intentions that guide these related actions. Far too often, this becomes the afterthought or byproduct of a hurried and frazzled life, rather than the other way around.
Intentions are bigger than a list of resolutions because they amplify your core values when you exercise your natural strengths. As a result, you feel more energized, focused, engaged, and alive.
Imagine what it would be like if your life was full of positive motivation, ease, and flow.
I’d love to partner with you to help you explore this more. So much so, that I created an exclusive self-guided exercise to help you dive deeper into uncovering your intentions and creating your Personal Manifesto!
The first 10 people that comment below and share their 2016 intention and email address will receive a complimentary copy of my Manifesto Makeover Guide.
So what does 2016 hold for you?
Wishing you brilliance, wisdom, and joy as we move into another year!
