This month’s theme is having an intention is essential for a sweet life. Intentions are much more powerful than resolutions. Let me show you how.
When I get excited about a goal I get a burst of energy start working feverishly on my project. Initially, I am completely devoted. If my project gets stalled or takes longer than I expect, normal life begins to creep back in and my excitement begins to wane. I might even start to rethink my decision to take on the project in the first place. This leads me to a decision point of whether I will continue or give up. If it is resolution most people give up!
Intentions will help keep you going.
Intentions are a combined with a strong desire to make it happen along with your goal. It is a life changing combination. It’s like the rush of falling in love (with yourself and your dreams)!
Continuing with my goal comes down to the strength of my desire to change my life. Are you hearing what I am saying? As you start to think about a goal for the new year, spend some time really understanding if you have a burning desire to make this change in your life. Once you have that motivation deeply imbedded in yourself you are already a long way to achieving your goals.
Let me give you an example.
One of the most common goals is to lose weight yet many don’t achieve this goal. Success stories shown on the news the people who have achieved their health and weight goals happen because they have a desire beyond just weight. They have desire to have more energy, to finish building that engine after work, or write that book or just have a wonderful night sleep without a CPAP machine.
Choosing a personally important goal - energy to play with your children, or to be able to sit in an airplane sit without feeling ashamed of your size is a motivating.
Being motivated with your intention coupled with a specific plan is the transformation. If you have motivation but need help with your intention and your plan then come talk to me. My job as your doctor and your mentor is to step with you though the process to the finish line – OPTIMAL HEALTH!
