“A good intention clothes itself with sudden power.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
They say that each day is the first day of the rest of our lives.
That’s why I take time as soon as I wake up each day to intend what I will do with my life each day.
Whatever I have chosen to put on my calendar for the day, I spend time envisioning my intentions for engaging or accomplishing that activity.
If I have set an appointment with a client for that day, as soon as I wake up I begin to envision the intended result I will be co-creating with that client during our conversation together.
In fact, at the start of each coaching call with a client, I ask this question: “What do you intend to achieve, receive and/or release as a result of this coaching session?” By doing so, we both know exactly what we intend to discuss and accomplish together.
If I have set an appointment for co-creating a business project with another person or persons that day, as soon as I open my eyes I begin to envision the result I intend to achieve — if at all possible — by the end of that meeting.
‘Possibility’ is the energy that gives intentions their power.
‘Possibility‘ is much stronger than a hope, a wish, a desire that something will happen.
‘Possibility‘ fills me with a sense that I have a measure of effectiveness in determining the outcome.
I must feel that there is a real possibility that my intended results can be achieved…otherwise what’s the point of giving my time and attention to that meeting or that project?
Without that sense of possibility, I might as well cancel the activity, the meeting, the project because it can only be a waste of time.
With that sense of possibility — I am able to envision, plan, and implement each activity required to achieve my intended outcome!

If not, I invite you to do so now. Once you have set your intention, then go back to the beginning and read it again. You may discover that you receive something more valuable in these words the second time through.
