Daily Intentions = Fabulous Outcomes

A small business marketing To-Do listHave you ever gotten up in the morning and made a conscious choice, a conscious intention for what you were going to focus on for the day? Or are you already in motion, reviewing your to-do list and what you need to get done?

When running your own business (or even working for a company) it’s easy to get derailed from your main goal, your focus. But, if you start your day out with an intention, you up your consciousness for what you want to accomplish + align in your life.

Just so you know, beginning your day with an intention and revisiting that intention throughout the day does not mean your day isn’t going to have humps and bumps. It’s just a way to for you to re-focus where you’d like your intention to be and not get sidetracked by the humps and bumps.

How do you create an intention?

Start your intention with “I” since you’re the one creating this positive energy. You can always put “today” before the “I” as well. The next word should be an action.

I create.     I am.     I focus.     I make.     Follow it with your focus for the day.

Here are some examples:

Today I make choices that fill my Self Love Tank and best represent my Authentic Self.

Today I create space to BE my Authentic Self in my business so that I can better share the FaBuLoSiTY that is uniquely mine.

Today I eat + drink anything & everything that BEST makes my body feel nourished + energized.

Today I maintain boundaries out of Love for Myself + Others.

Today I Celebrate each & every success I experience no matter what the size.

Of course, you can keep it super simple or be more creative. The most important thing? To create an intention that resonates with YOU. And, your intention can change daily or stay the same every day. Again, entirely up to YOU.

After you’ve constructed your intention, it’s time for you to practice saying it. Get up in the morning, gaze at Bold + Brilliant + Beautiful  self in the mirror and state your intention. Say it more than once to cement it into your Energy + Mind. If you have it memorized after this, FABULOUS. If not, write it down on a piece of paper and stick it in your pocket. Or write it on a sticky note and stick it on your computer. Maintain your intention throughout the day by repeating it to yourself any time you need the reminder.

You’ll notice, the more you practice daily intentions, the more you’ll make Conscious Choices and create more Wondrous Delights + Positive Outcomes in your life.

Intend. Focus. Experience FaBuLoSiTY!headoverheelsinhealth_LOGO667bbd0b46cd

You are so right. I get up in the morning without any clear focus on the intention for the day. I go through the regular motions, and repeat. This is excellent advice and by putting your steps into action, I believe has the power to change your life. I worked with an executive coach this year and something she taught me was the use and power of affirmation cards--writing down positive things about yourself or that you want to change and read them frequently. The reason is that research shows that if you read something over and over again, eventually your mind will change these things for you. I love the idea of having a focus and actually saying the words aloud and to yourself each day. And I really like that if I do it enough, my mind will make it happen for me. I love this particular intention that you created: Today I Celebrate each and every success I experience no matter what the size. I'm stealing it! It's powerful and I know it will do wonders. Thanks for the great post!

@Marissa Buckley I am right with you, Marissa.  What a simple but incredibly important strategy Laura shares with us.  We can all relate to how the start of our day can affect the rest of our day, whether traffic, missing the alarm, etc.  If we intentionally start our day with positive thoughts and an intended focus for the day, we can see extraordinary outcomes.  Sign up for Laura's newsletter. You'll love it.
