Ask yourself this…
Are you living your best life? Do you feel fulfilled?
We’re sure you have a ton of thoughts and ideas that you want in your life, but you’re not sure where to start. This is because we tend to spend too much time on the end result, or what will happen, instead of being grateful for what is currently happening in our lives.
One of the best ways tTo feel more fulfilled, we need to start setting daily intentions – small stepping stones towards our goals and dreams. By now you may know that Lauryn is HUGE at setting goals, but more importantly at putting systems and strategies in place to get you there.
The power to set intentions
When we set intentions, we are essentially creating a roadmap for our life. By making it clear what we want and doing everything we can to make it happen, we are telling the universe that we are not ready 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 build ourselves. We become better versions of ourselves. And it’s incredibly powerful.
SO let’s dream big, set those intentions and go for it. The world awaits us.
What does it mean to set intentions?
Setting intentions is not just about setting goals. It’s about being aware of what you want to accomplish, why it’s important to you, and how you plan to get there. When you set a daily intention, you send a message to the universe that you are ready to take action. It says you intend to live the life you desire.
Setting intentions will help you cultivate a growth mindset: the belief that we can improve by working hard on 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 by your goal to keep trying. Life won’t always go perfectly, but eventually things will start to fall into place.
