Setting Your Intentions For a Brilliant 2010
If you don't bother to define your dream destination, you risk ending up somewhere disappointing.
Setting crystal clear intentions for your new year is powerful.
Sadly, we often spend more time planning our weddings or our holidays than planning our lives.
(And yes, there is still lots of room for spontaneity if you set your intentions!) So let me invite you now to take an hour, find your favourite comfortable place, maybe in front of the fire with a hot chocolate, or glass of champagne, take a journal or any blank notebook, and let's get started.
Really focus on your vision for yourself in 2010; what do you want to create for your life and your work in the next year? Ask yourself...
Where do I most want to be by this time next year? Whether it's your career, your personal relationship, your spiritual life, your finances, your happiness level...
write down one clear intention for each area.
At this point we're not writing down specific goals (that can come later), but instead following our instinct and our heart about what direction we want to go in, how we want to feel.
If you feel inclined (and only if), share your thinking process and reflect more deeply on your intentions.
Keep your journal/notebook somewhere accessible.
You might want to write your intentions on a card and keep it in your diary or on your desk at home, somewhere visible.
Next month we'll explore how to turn your intentions into actions and results!
