The Power Of Setting Intentions

The Power Of Setting Intentions

Ask yourself this…

Are you living your best life? Are you feeling fulfilled? 

We’re sure you have a ton of thoughts & ideas that you want in your life but have no idea how to get started. That’s because we tend to spend too much time on the end result, or what will be – as opposed to being grateful for what is currently in our lives. 

One of the best ways to feel more fulfilled is to start setting daily intentions– small stepping stones toward our goals and dreams. You may know by now that Lauryn is HUGE on setting goals, but more importantly, setting up systems and strategies to get you there. 

The Power Of Setting Intentions

When we set intentions, we are essentially creating a roadmap for our life. By getting clear on what we want and putting in the work to make it happen, we are telling the universe that we are not willing to settle for less. 

But it’s not just about achieving our goals. It’s also about becoming the kind of person who has the discipline, resilience, and determination to make those goals a reality. 

When we set intentions and work towards them, we are building ourselves up. We’re becoming better versions of ourselves. And that’s incredibly powerful. 

So let’s dream big, set those intentions, and go make it happen. The world is waiting for us.

What Does It Mean To Set Intentions?

Setting intentions is more than just setting goals. It’s about being mindful of what you want to achieve, why it’s important to you, and how you plan to get there. When you are setting a daily intention, you’re sending a message to the universe that you’re ready to take action. It says that you intend to live the life you desire.

Setting intentions will help you cultivate a growth mindset: the belief that we can improve ourselves by working hard at something we care about, even if we don’t have all the skills or knowledge right away. 

This positive mindset is an important part of setting positive intentions because it means that even when things aren’t going well, you’ll still feel motivated enough about your goal to keep trying. Life won’t always go perfectly, but eventually, things will start falling into place.

Why Setting Intentions is Important

Setting an intention is everything.

Because it gives us direction and purpose, allowing us to focus our energy on achieving our goals. It also promotes self-awareness and personal growth, as we become more in tune with our desires and motivations. 

By setting intentions, we are essentially giving ourselves permission to dream big and strive for something greater. Here are a few other reasons why setting intentions is so important:

♡ Setting intentions clarifies your goals.

You gotta know what you want before you can get it. Setting intentions helps you get clear on your goals and figure out what you really want out of life. Go on and write your intent, and let the universe do its thing.

♡ Setting intentions increases your focus.

Let’s face it, we all have a million things going on at once. Setting intentions can help you cut through the noise and focus on what really matters. Ain’t nobody got time for distractions.

♡ Setting intentions improves motivation.

Sometimes we need a little kick in the pants to get going. Setting intentions can provide that motivation and inspiration to help you get moving towards your goals.

♡ Setting intentions boosts productivity.

We all want to get more done in less time, right? Setting intentions can help you prioritize your tasks and stay accountable, making you a productivity powerhouse. More on productivity here.

Making decisions can be tough, especially when there are so many options. Paradox of choice, anyone? Setting intentions can help you make better decisions by providing a clear roadmap for your choices. No more agonizing over what to do next.

♡ Setting intentions reduces stress.

Life can be stressful, but setting intentions can help. By giving you a sense of purpose and direction, intentions can help reduce anxiety and stress. Take a deep breath, girl, you got this.

♡ Setting intentions enhances self-awareness.

Who doesn’t want to know themselves better? Setting intentions can help you become more self-aware, which can lead to personal growth and development. Get ready to discover your badass self. (For even more on self-awareness, see our roundup of the best books to get to know yourself.)

♡ Setting intentions builds self-confidence.

Achieving your intentions can give you a serious confidence boost. By setting goals and crushing them, you’ll feel like a total boss. (Like you should!)

Communication is key, and the benefits of setting intentions include helping you to communicate your needs and desires to others. By expressing yourself clearly, you can improve your relationships and get what you want out of them. Because you deserve the best.

♡ Setting intentions increases happiness.

At the end of the day, we all just want to be happy. Setting intentions and achieving your goals can help you feel fulfilled and satisfied with your life. Go ahead and do what makes you happy.
