Intentions

Did you set any intentions at the beginning of this new year?

Yes?

And how do you feel about them after one month?

Are they still standing?

Do you still believe in them?

Do you still believe you can reach them?

Yes?

Perfect!!

Keep going in the direction of your intentions!

No?

Why not?

What changed?

Don’t you believe in them anymore?

Why not?

Don’t you believe you can reach them?

Why not?

What made you change your mind?

Did you fall back into old habits?

Everyone knows that:

To accomplish something new, something different in your life,

you have to do something different.

Because when you keep doing the same things over and over again, you will reach the same result over and over again! That’s a given!

So in order to obtain a new result,

you will have to change your life, change your behavior.

Yes, “but how?”  you’ re asking me now.

Well,

First of all:

Take a good look at your intention:

is this what you really want in your life?

No, well then you need to adjust your intentions so that you have a very clear view of what it is that you do want in life.

Yes, OK! Great!

Create a very clear vision of how your life will look like once you’ve made those intentions a reality.

Visualize this “new life” in detail, over and over again so that you fall in love with the new you, with your new life.

Once you really love who you will become and how your new life will look like, you will do everything it takes to create this new life in the real world.

Make a plan, make a ‘how-to-get-there’ in detail so that you know exactly what to do. Believe you will reach it.

If you have a clear vision of how to go step by step, it will make it easier for you to keep following that path.

Keep your vision clear, keep visualizing what it is you want.

Then you will always know what to do when you are about to fall back into old habits.

Baby steps make it easier to keep going,

even when you feel like giving up or giving in into the old ways.

Make sure you know what you want and WHY!

Believe you will get there!

Your ‘why’ must be very strong and it must be YOUR why.

Doing something just:

To please someone

To get accepted in a certain company

Because it ‘looks good’ (to whom???)

Because other people are doing so

…..

Will never last!

You have to know why you want to do this, why you want to live this certain way.

Otherwise it will never last!

Otherwise you will fall back into your “old ways” at the first obstacle you will encounter!

So keep your WHY alive and kicking!

Here is your action plan to get where you want to get:

Set a very clear intention.

Know why you set this.

Change your thoughts into thoughts that reflect your new beliefs

Keep repeating those thoughts until they are your new “standard” thoughts.

Enjoy the feelings that come along with those great new beliefs.

Start doing only the things that lead you along the path to your new life, stop doing things that will derail you from it.

Keep doing what keeps you on track until that becomes your new and automatic modus operandi!

That’s how you will get to live the life of your intentions!I wish you all a very clear vision, a huge stamina, and the discipline to go step by step every single day

until you’ve reached your goal, your ‘new life’,

until your intention has become a reality!

Then enjoy it and be proud of yourself!

Namaste!
