Hopefully you had a chance to “decide” what “you” really want. Let’s explore that a bit further.
If the main target was financial wealth, financial freedom, financial security, financial independence, or financial abundance, then we would need to make that crisp and clear to the subconscious. Why the subconscious? Because it’s the part of our minds that gets the work done. No matter how convinced we were at the conscious level, unless that conviction trickled down to the subconscious, to the engine that makes things happen, we would stop at that; a mere verbage!
Words have tremendous effect on our minds. Let me give you an example. Suppose you’re thinking about buying a new phone. Which statement has a better chance of getting done: “I’m not quite sure which phone I “might” buy “, or “I intend to buy an Android (or I-Phone) N.x smart phone, next Saturday”?
I guess the point is now clear. Let’s use that in setting an objective. We already know the “What”. Now we will write that which we “want” in a language that gets the subconscious cranking! Here it is:
“I intend, and allow myself, to make (specify amount) dollars by the end of (specify year), or before”.
Notice that we did not say anything about the “How”. Never include that in your intentions. You shall figure that out as you start moving in “the general direction” of your intention. You want your intentions to be specific, and at the same time, flexible enough to grab better opportunities along the way.
I’m going to leave you with this statement till the next post. Once you reach a phrase that is believable to you, stick with it, write it down where you can see it at least once a day. Read it loudly to yourself. Feel the emotion and excitement behind every word. But don’t stop at that! Go to work on your intention. Your task would be more enjoyable and easier now that you “know” what you “want”.
Another observation is that we didn’t use the word “want”. Wanting implies a strong desire, which is a sign of weakness. It usually leads to moving targets. Since you “want” to be wealthy, you will stay in that state of wanting, as the target is pushed farther.
On the other hand, intentions are affirmative. They reveal confidence and belief. When an intention reaches the level of “knowing”, without any shred of doubt, it gets manifested for sure, one way or another. We’re not counting on miracles here, but rather, on the effective alignment of inner and outer forces.
The intention alone won’t make you a fortune. However, it sets the stage for you to start off your journey on the right footing, and that is exactly what you need!
