Let’s look at the exercise we did in the article on Designing Your Life on Purpose. You should be very motivated right now because you are truly starting to design your life on purpose. With what you’ve just learned on the power of commitment, you are in a position to turn those desires into intentions and turn them into physical reality right now.
We did this brainstorming in order to get to a point where we can identify the main goals, or what I prefer to call Intentions, that you have in the key areas of life—Financial, Physical, Relationships and Emotional.
Look at your four lists of intentions, (Be, Do, Have and Give) and pick out your top one- or two-year intentions from each list. Figure out which are your top short-term intentions for each of these areas. It can be several (three to five) things in each area that really compel you.
I will help you construct a Positive Intention Declaration in each of the four areas that you can read every day in order to attract your desires into your life automatically.
The purpose of this exercise centers on the Law of Attraction, which states that what you focus on continually you attract into your life. When you’re continually focusing on whatever the ideal picture is for you, wouldn’t you be excited if you had already achieved all of those things? Of course you would, so this is creating a mental attitude of success, positive expectancy, appreciation, happiness and confidence, which is the vibration you are sending out into the world. Like attracts like, so by the Law of Attraction this is what you are drawing to yourself automatically.
The thing is… you’re not going to write your declarations stating: In one or two years I will Be that, Do that and Have that.
That would always keep these things one to two years in the future.
Most people, however, have a problem with stating things in the first person, present tense. In other words, due to your previous conditioning, if you state, I am this, I have that, I am doing this, your sub-conscious mind will sit there and go BS, BS, I’m broke, I’m sick, I’m miserable, that’s a lie and you will self-sabotage because of a conflict in beliefs.
The key is to state the declarations in the first person permissive, which is: I allow myself to be, do, have and give. Unless you already have successful experience with the use of affirmations and declarations and have already achieved some important successes in your life with “I Am” statements, stick with the first person permissive. Otherwise, your subconscious mind will not respond because of psychological reversal.
To clarify, the exercise is this: For each key area in life (Financial, Relationships, Physical, Emotional) create a very powerful and impacting paragraph that fires you up! You want to be descriptive enough, yet concise, so that when you read it, it fires your positive emotions, faith and expectancy. You’ll develop a mindset of positive expectancy and confidence through a process of reviewing these declarations daily at specific times during the day, so that you stay perfectly focused and intent on them.
For example, maybe one of your BE goals, is to be a millionaire. And maybe some of your HAVE goals are to earn $500,000 a year, live in a 5,000 square foot home on a couple of acres near a lake and have a BMW 750Li. Maybe traveling around the world with your family is one of your DO goals. So, take and construct from these areas a Financial Intention Declaration of who you’re being, what you’re doing, what you’re having and what you’re giving, and make it into a paragraph.
Here’s an example of a Positive Intention Declaration (PID) for each area.
Financial PID: I allow myself to be (I am) a multimillionaire, earning $500,000.00 a year, living in a 5,000 square foot Mediterranean home on a lake, driving a BMW 750Li, traveling to Tahiti with my family, and living my passion in life while creating a better world by helping to raise the collective consciousness through my Global Spirituality Foundation…
Relationship PID: I allow myself to have (I have) a loving, romantic relationship with my life partner and soul mate, sharing all the joys and adventures of life. My relationships with my children are full of happiness. I allow myself to have harmonious win-win business relationships with principle-based people who share my vision. I’m attracting into my life like-minded, spiritually enlightened friends, etc.
Physical PID: I allow myself to have my ideal body. I’m lean, trim and fit. People are always telling me I look great in my bathing suit. I allow myself to have a laser-sharp mind that continually serves me. I allow myself to have perfect, vibrant health, full of energy and vitality, feeling powerful and full of life constantly, I allow myself to be a great __________ (fill in the blank… tennis player, swimmer, athlete, dancer) etc.
Emotional PID: I allow myself to be a “state master,” continually directing my emotional states, focusing on what I desire consistently and feeling that it’s already mine. I give empowering meaning to everything that happens in my life and I’m continually releasing all negative feelings, emotions and memories as they come up. I allow myself to have a belief system that serves me and empowers me and I allow myself to live in happy, cheerful powerful states, manifesting the life of my dreams on purpose.
Now that you have these descriptive examples, find your top Intentions in your BE, DO, HAVE, GIVE desires and create a compelling declaration that, by your commitment, converts desire to intention. Do it Now!
In order to change your life, conditions and circumstances, you have to change your state of consciousness or mindset! The best way to do that is to get clear on what really moves you and drives you and inspires you to go to new heights of awareness and use your imagination to feel as if you already are, have and do this, and then use it as a lever to automatically produce these results.
Whether you like it or not you are already doing this to produce the results you’re getting in your life right now… automatically! If you don’t like these results, could it possibly be that you didn’t specifically decide what results you truly wanted? And, if you didn’t clearly ask life for what you wanted and additionally sent life mixed signals… how could you get what you desired?
Your assignment is to read these declarations first thing in the morning when you wake up and last thing before you go to sleep at night and imagine yourself as already being that person, having and doing what you desire.
Remember that just reading all of this will not create the changes you want in your future. You must put these principles to work in your life! Apply these strategies and do what you’ve never done before. Step out of your comfort zone and as Nike says “just do it!”
In my next article we’re going to explore what could be blocking you from having the things you really want so you can eliminate them (and by the way… they’re not your fault!) so until then…
