“The winners in life think constantly in terms of I can, I will, and I am. Losers, on the other hand, concentrate their waking thoughts on what they should have or would have done, or what they can't do." - Denis Waitley
Tip 56 is on The Power of Intention. This is by far one of my favorite topics because I truly am a firm believer in something my mom once told me, she said, "Tammy if you can think it than you can do it." What an incredible adventure life becomes when you believe that all things are possible and that you are capable of achieving all of your dreams if you just set your mind to do so. I love the power of positive affirmations and practice the daily ritual of keeping pleasant notes around my home and in my car reminding me of all things possible. Some of my favorites: "Things always work out for me, " "I have abundance mentality," "G-d will always provide for me and my family," "Let go and let g-d." Think about the things that you say every single day to yourself. Are they good positive reminders of all things possible or are they negative? Are you someone who looks at the glass half full or half empty? Do you believe in miracles? These are great thought provoking questions to really get you thinking. Wayne Dyer has often said, "The state of your life is nothing more than a reflection of your state of mind."
When I started looking for a job last year I had in mind the exact job that I wanted to create. I wanted to work 25 hours a week so that I could be home everyday at 3:00 pm for my son. I wanted to work from home and wanted the support of my employers for my speaking and coaching business. I wanted certain expenses covered - I had really outlined almost everything even prior to making one phone call. I called Ronda Ellis, Esquire and the rest is history. My power of intention was so strong that I created my dream job, with my dream employer, Ellis, Ged & Bodden, P.A. working with the greatest people and happy every single day. Another great Wayne Dyer quote, "Happiness is something that you are, and it comes from the way you think." Only I know what will make me happy, only I know what my true desires are. James Allen said it best, "A man sooner or later discovers that he is the master-gardener of his soul, the director of his life."
We must all have a master plan, goals to reach and dreams we hope one day to achieve. Only you know in your heart the road you should take or they path you should follow. I love this quote by Mark Victor Hansen, "You control your future, your destiny. What you think about comes about. By recording your dreams and goals on paper, you set in motion the process of becoming the person you most want to be. Put your future in good hands - your own." Don't let life just happen to you - make it happen. This is not a dress rehearsal. Writing down your goals could perhaps be the one greatest gift you could give yourself. The second would be sharing your goals with at least one committed listener who supports you and what you hope to achieve. Johann Wolfgang von Gothe said it best, "The moment one definitely commits oneself, the providence moves too. All sort of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred...unforeseen incidents, meeting, and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way." The power of intention is a force to be reckoned with and all things are possible if we desire them to be possible.
Whether it is business or personal goals you hope to achieve Napoleon Hill tells us, "Hold a picture of yourself long and steadily enough in your mind's eye, and you will be drawn to it." Since my separation I have been saying that there was someone out there looking for me. I knew that all I had to do was wait and be patient. I knew in my heart that he would find me if I believed that he would. When I least expected it, my girlfriend Lisa called to fix me up with Adam. Deepak Chopra said it best, "Intentions compressed into words enfold magical power." I am a firm believer in magical power and things happening for a reason. Who knows if my thoughts are what attracted Adam into my life or not, but why not believe. Wayne Dyer has taught us, "The power of intention is the power to manifest, to create, to live a life of unlimited abundance, and to attract into your life the right people at the right moments." My dear friend Adiel would confirm, all she had to do was whisper her intention to find gainful employment and everyone she loves rallied around her to help her, guide her, and support her intentions. Sometime all it takes is a whisper - G-d is always listening even when it's just a whisper.
"Live with intention. Walk to the edge. Listen hard. Practice wellness. Play with abandon. Laugh. Choose with no regret. Appreciate your friends. Continue to learn. Do what you love. Live as if this is all there is." - Mary Anne Radmacher
