“This Year Will Be Different (We say, again and again)”: 6-Steps To Fulfill Your Intentions

In Abundance, Career, Destiny, Goals, Hope, Prosperity, Transformation, Vision, Vision Boards on 2014/01/10 at 1:31 pm
Attention! I have something to say...

Attention! I have something to say…

We are already in the double digits of January! We’ve said farewell to most of our holiday visitors, and we are ready to get down to business. I wrote, recently, that most people do not stick to their New Year’s Resolutions. Even if that is the case, most of us carry our good intentions well into the new year.

If you are not so certain that resolutions are for you, yet you want to live to the intention “This Year Will Be Different” – consider the exercise that I first wrote about last January. It is a method of visualizing that will help strengthen your resolve to create a life you love. The date on the calendar isn’t important. Getting started IS.

In just 6 easy steps,

1: Reflect and Write: Spend about 15 minutes limitless thinking about and what you want to change, do and have in life (or in 2013). Using a blank piece of paper at least 8.5 x 11, write those things down.

2:  Elaborate (The 3rd Degree): Interview yourself about your list. If someone handed your list to you, you would probably be asked to elaborate on his or her ideas. As you take on the interviewer’s perspective, you might ask, “Who will benefit? Why do you want to do that? What will it mean to have that in your life?”

3: Declare Your Intention (Campaign Promises): Announce what you intend to accomplish or attract into your reality. You have done the visioning work- you’ve created an elaborate word picture in the previous two steps.  Now, you can claim it.  Turn your list into a paragraph that announces your intention. Once you have done this, you’re ready to put some incremental goals in place. Post this intention. Keep it nearby. Consider  making a vision board (www.buildingapowerfulvisionboard.com), starting a journey of planning your future (https://www.createspace.com/4472270), or typing up a clean copy of your statement, framing it or using it as the background on your computer or your phone.

4: List some specific goals for the journey to your intended outcome. For example, if your goal is to add $75,000 to your retirement by 2017, now would be a good time to describe the amount you intend to add in 2014, 2015 and 2016. Plan the work and work the plan.

5: Map your journey: Describe how you will get there. List the types of actions and activities you’ll  GET to do (not HAVE to do. Have to do sounds like work. Get to do means learning and expanding) to reach your intended outcome at each phase of your journey.

6:  Hitch up the wagon… we’re heading out! Decide how the first leg of your journey is going to play out. What are the few first steps that you will take and celebrate? Select some steps you can complete this week, and then get out there!

Best of luck with your plan. As always, I welcome your comments, and make it a great week.

Bundle Up and “Chill” For A Change!

In Abundance, Career, Destiny, Goals, Hope, Prosperity, Transformation, Vision, Vision Boards on 2014/01/05 at 9:15 am
Snow Day!

Snow Day!

January 5, 2014 – The weather outside IS frightful if you live in most of the 48 contiguous United States today.

The snow is heavy. Sub-sub-zero temps are on their way. Many of us have been cabin-bound for the past week. How shall I respond to this weather crisis?

Hmm… Usually, I don my  disciplined  project cape and use this time for business related creative work. I tell my family that I need to get a head start on my planning and writing for the new year.

Here’s the truth. I think that my family doesn’t enjoy being stuck in the house with  Miss Intensity. I think they prefer “Let’s build a snowman, drink hot cocoa and bake really good crusty bread!” Tess much more.

Today, my productivity is going to be limited to a read of Desiderata , and a good “Chill”.

Here are my Snowy Day recommendations for you, should you find yourself snowbound this season:

A day of good cheer and intensity-free living will create great memories and garner the  support of those whose support you need the remaining 364 days a year.

Here’s a bonus: You may receive some healthy feedback about ways that your family and friends need your support in their lives while you are busy creating your Best Life!

Make it a great week. As always, I welcome your comments.
