Let’s Talk about Your Intention for Today

Because goals are for the future.

As we are at the beginning of the month, let’s have a look at setting intentions. It’s a big word that has found increasing popularity recently, but what’s all the fuss about? I am a huge believer in goal setting and doing it the right way, as it is such a crucial element in moving forward with our lives and achieving the dreams and vision we have set for ourselves. As important and incredibly valuable as it is to go through the goal-setting process, it also tends to be very future-orientated. 

But what about today? What about this very moment? How do we ensure we live every day in a way that will take us towards our goals on a consistent basis?

This is where intentions come in. There have been many studies that show how our thoughts and intentions can affect our environment and our overall experience of life. In a renowned case study, Dr. Masaru Emoto showed that the modular structure of water can be changed through the intention of the observer. Whether the person looking at the water sample was sending prayers or hateful thoughts towards it had a direct impact on its composition. Incidentally, 60% of our bodies are made of water, so it’s only logical that we also are influenced by how we think!

Anything that happens in our life starts with an intention – whether that is what career you choose, where you live, what you eat, who you surround yourself with, and what you do in your spare time. Most of the time these intentions are set subconsciously so we do not even realise how we are constantly creating our reality and experience of life. 

In order to achieve our goals, we need to show up every single day with the intention to give it our best shot, and consciously use this power to get what we really want. There is a saying that is becoming more and more widespread these days: “Where attention goes, energy flows.” If you take the time to set intentions deliberately, it sets energy in motion that is beyond your personal effort and will support you in all your endeavours. You can co-create life supported by the invisible force that is behind all things. 

Intentions can be set at any given time, and it can drive your focus on who you are right now and help you cultivate a growth mindset. It encourages you to honour your values and inspires you to live your day as the person you need to become in order to achieve your goals. It sets in motion energy that’s beyond your personal effort and will support you in being successful – consistently setting intentions really can be life-changing. 

I try to set intentions daily. Of course, there are days when I forget, but the key is to develop a regular practice. There are no rules to setting intentions the ‘right’ way, but here are some tips that will help you get started: 

  1. Connect to your valuesWhat’s important to you and how can you bring more of that into your life today? 
  2. Have your vision in mind: Remember your vision and who you need to become to fulfil your purpose. 
  3. Think large scale: Don’t stop at yourself, but also consider the world around you and how you want to impact your environment. 
  4. Bring pen to paper: Write out your intention on a paper. It gets it out of your head and becomes so much more powerful as the first step of manifesting it. 
  5. State it positively: Avoid using words such as ‘don’t’, ‘not’, and ‘won’t’ – the subconscious can absorb negative words, so you’ll end up creating what you don’t want! 
  6. Let your heart speak: It’s good to think deep, but don’t get lost in overthinking. Get your head out of the way and see what comes from within.

Empowering Self: Unveiling Three Essential Strategies to Overcome Self-Doubt

Empowerment Through Confidence

Self-doubt is a common struggle that many people face. It can hold us back from reaching our full potential and achieving our goals. But what exactly is self-doubt, and how can we overcome it? We will explore the concept of self-doubt and unveil three essential strategies to help you overcome it and empower yourself.

Understanding Self-Doubt

Self-doubt is the lack of confidence in oneself and one’s abilities. It is the inner voice that tells us we are not good enough, smart enough, or capable enough to achieve our goals. It can manifest in different ways, such as fear of failure, imposter syndrome, or constantly seeking validation from others.

Self-doubt can be triggered by past experiences, societal pressures, or our own inner critic. It can hold us back from taking risks, trying new things, or pursuing our passions. However, it is important to remember that self-doubt is a normal part of the human experience and can be overcome with the right strategies.

The Power of Inner Strength

Inner strength is the ability to trust in oneself and one’s abilities. It is the foundation of self-confidence and resilience. When we have inner strength, we are better equipped to face challenges and overcome self-doubt.

Cultivating a Positive Mindset

Our mindset plays a crucial role in how we perceive ourselves and our abilities. A positive mindset involves having a growth mindset, which means believing that our abilities and intelligence can be developed through effort and learning. It also involves reframing negative thoughts into positive ones and focusing on our strengths rather than our weaknesses. Cultivating a positive mindset takes practice, but it can greatly impact how we view ourselves and our potential.

The Importance of Self-Care

Self-care is often overlooked, but it is essential for building inner strength and maintaining a positive mindset. Self-care involves taking care of our physical, emotional, and mental well-being. It can include activities such as exercise, meditation, spending time in nature, or engaging in hobbies. When we prioritise self-care, we are better equipped to handle self-doubt and build our inner strength.

Strategies to Overcome Self-Doubt

Now that we have a better understanding of self-doubt and its impact, let’s explore three essential strategies to help you overcome self-doubt and empower yourself.

Practice Self-Awareness

Building inner strength takes time and effort, but it is a crucial step in overcoming self-doubt. Here are three strategies to help you cultivate inner strength and empower yourself.

Self-awareness is the ability to recognize and understand our thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. It is a crucial first step in overcoming self-doubt because it allows us to identify when self-doubt is present and how it affects us. To practice self-awareness, try journaling or mindfulness exercises. This can help you become more aware of your thoughts and emotions and how they contribute to self-doubt. Once you are aware of your self-doubt triggers, you can work on reframing negative thoughts and building your inner strength.

Set Realistic Goals

Setting realistic goals is important for building confidence and overcoming self-doubt. When we set unrealistic goals, we set ourselves up for failure, which can reinforce self-doubt. Instead, set achievable goals that align with your strengths and values. This will help you build momentum and confidence, which can help you overcome self-doubt in the long run.

Surround Yourself with Positive Influences

The people we surround ourselves with can greatly impact our self-doubt. If you are constantly surrounded by negative influences, it can be challenging to build inner strength and maintain a positive mindset. Instead, surround yourself with positive influences, such as supportive friends and family, mentors, or positive role models. These individuals can provide encouragement and help you stay motivated on your journey to overcoming self-doubt.

Self-doubt is a common feeling that can hold us back from reaching our full potential. However, with the right strategies, we can overcome self-doubt and empower ourselves to achieve our goals. By cultivating inner strength, maintaining a positive mindset, and practising, we can build the confidence and resilience needed to overcome self-doubt. Remember, self-doubt is a normal part of the human experience, and with determination and perseverance, we can overcome it and reach our full potential.
