Do you have difficulty asking for what you want? Most people do.. and not only where other people are concerned, but for what you want from life in general or from daily situations. What if you didn’t have to actually ask? What if you could set a clear intention and then just watch it unfold.
I suggest the practice of setting an intention for the outcome that you want from every activity in every day. It takes discipline and remembrance, but it is so worth it. Suppose you have a lot of sales calls to make and you’re dreading them. You know that if you make a certain number of calls, you will make sales. You will want to set an intention for your sales goals, but you could also set an intention for other fun things, such as how many people you make smile. Delightful outcomes can result from playing with this as well as success.
Suppose you are going to the grocery store. You could set an intention “I find everything I need quickly and easily, today.” I went to a specialty food store the other day with that intention and almost immediately someone came up to me and asked if they could help me find anything. I said yes and she helped me and then stayed with me throughout my shopping and helped me find everything. It was wonderful!
So get in the habit of setting intentions not only for the big things you want, but all throughout the day. I also set an intention at the beginning of every day before I get out of bed for the kind of day I want to have. This practice will open you up to receiving the generosity and experiencing the playfulness of the universe.
As you have successful and fun outcomes on small things, it will help you believe that you can achieve the big things you want in your life. You’ll find yourself having greater and greater faith that your intentions will be fulfilled.
