Intention statements can be very powerful and I’ll tell you why.
Think of all the things you tell yourself you don’t want more of. Maybe you don’t want to keep working so hard to keep up your lifestyle, don’t want to be the mom that doesn’t get to see her kids, don’t want to spend another staycation at home, don’t want to worry about money. You see where this is going right?
Your reticular activating system (RAS) in your brain is showing you what you don’t want because you keep telling it what to FOCUS on. It is like you’ve given your brain a magnifying class to focus on those things. Because you are so focused on what you don’t want, you will not see what is right next to you ready to give you what you want.
Instead try telling yourself what you want. Your statements could look like this:
- “I want to create a lifestyle that I want and feel good about how I’m doing it.”
- “I want a life that allows me to spend more time with my kids.”
- “I will be a mom that gets to choose time with my kids because I can.”
When I started changing my intentions to what I want more of, I noticed that I was attracting those kids of people into my life and my business. That positive energy is EVERYTHING!!! What do you want more of?
