Is Life Happening TO You?
This Week's Simple Tip
Years ago I recall someone suggesting that we replace the greeting "have a nice day" with "make it a great day." The difference is that the latter attaches responsibility, and implies an intention. Setting an intention is like mapping out where you want to go. It becomes a guidepost for every choice and decision that comes along the way.
One of my intentions is to do my part to make the whole world smile. I have a reminder of this hanging in my bedroom that says WAKE UP SMILING. If I smile, I can help the whole world smile :) Intentions are powerful. Self-development expert Wayne Dyer believed that "Our intention creates our reality." They shape your mindset. Each weekly Serenity Sticky™ I share is designed to be an intention to help guide a change. I am not a huge Star Wars fan, but I absolutely LOVE the intention lesson Yoda teaches in this short clip: “Do or do not, there is no try.”
This Week's Focus
This week, set an intention about what you want to experience. You can do it for each day or for the whole week. Begin by telling yourself: My heartfelt intention is to _______. Then at the end of the day or week, write down how close you came to the realization of your intention.
