What do you do when your intentions getting you nowhere?
How often have you wanted something and only been able to see it as a massive mountain ahead of you?
How many goals have you given up because it was just too much to even think about?
If you're human, there have probably been a lot. And every time someone talks about manifesting your dreams you probably want to shake the sh*t out of them.
Ok ok maybe it's not that dramatic but wanting something and not having a clue how to get there can be. So over the next two posts we're going to break this down and step 1 is this:
There is a difference between intentions and goals.
How many times have you heard (or even said) oh I meant to do this or it was my intention to do that yet not had an actual plan to follow through on anything? Again, if you're human, it's probably been a lot
Think about it this way: the intention is the idea and the goal is the action.
For every idea, there must be an action and for every action there must be an idea behind it. I know, I know, this seems super obvious yet we spend so much time dreaming and wishing and manifesting that we forget that we need to actually do something about it.
Say you wanted to open a yoga studio, you'd probably be dreaming about it for a while, right? Maybe you started a Pinterest board with golden buddahs, bolsters with handmade covers from Bali and the mint colour you plan to paint the walls with. You have such a clear vision of what you want to create. This is the idea. This is the intention.
The thing is, until you make a plan and take those first steps in the direction of your intention, that's all it will ever be.
Now, let's say you have your intention, your vision, your idea, and you write down all the things you need to do in order to open a studio. Everything from creating a business plan, to building your brand, working with designers to create your logo, starting your Instagram, finding your space - all the little things we don't think about when we're creating our vision - they're all on paper. They're all on a list. A list that then become a set of action items.
Well then my love, this intention has now become a goal.
It's one thing to dream but it's an entirely different story to bring those dreams into reality. Next week we're going to be talking about how to create goals that stick so for right now:
Comment below with one idea you've been dreaming about, one intention to work with.
Whether your intention is to set aside time each week to journal more or start a home practice, or you truly are ready to take the steps towards your dream business, let's bring these ideas from intentions into realities.
Keep moving in the direciton of your dreams,
