One of the best, and perhaps simplest, ways of getting more of what you want in life is to set your intentions on what that is.
In my TEDx talk on Intention (http://tinyurl.com/z4hfsx5), I talked about how I found the perfect publisher, got to march in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City, and even got to do that TEDx talk because of my intentions to do those things.
I also shared the five ways to harness the power of intention and how they can help you get more of what you want. They are:
1- Be clear about what you want. If you don’t know what that is, how are you going to get it.
2- Put it in writing. Seeing what you want on paper is documenting what you are seeking.
3- You don’t have to know how it will happen. Just put it out in the universe and see what happens.
4- You can’t just think about what you want. You need to start doing things that will help you achieve your goals.
5- Lighten up. Getting too serious about anything gets in the way of your manifesting them.
Although I didn’t provide this example in my TEDx talk, writing down the exact kind of house I wanted got me a near perfect match.
When I was looking for a second home, I gave the real estate agent a list of thirty items I was seeking in a house. He found one that had 28 of those things. I’m convinced that it was because I was very clear of what I wanted, wrote what that was down, put it out in the
universe, and enlisted help, a real estate agent, to find it.
How will you manifest what you want?
