Why Set Intentions?
It is important to know what an intention truly is before you can begin to understand why. From the jump you may be like me and confuse an intention with a goal…#wrong. Let’s make that abundantly clear as intentions are not goals
Intentions =/= goals
Hammered into my brain on a regular basis in business school a goal or objective must be SMART (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, and Time Sensitive) With intentions however, you are trying to align your life with a PURPOSE or attitude. These cannot be measured or quantified as easily and may seem too abstract at first, but I promise setting an intention is a step towards finding your inner truth.
Setting an intention is the first step towards guiding your thoughts in meditation and doesn’t need to stop there. Move beyond the morning meditation, yoga, workout, run and let the intention guide your whole day, week, month, year.
- What matters most to you?
- What makes you smile?
- What are you grateful for?
- What do you need to remove from your life?
- What do you need to add?
Your intention should resonate with you to your core, only then can you stay grounded and remain focused on your path.
