Emphasize the difference between making decisions from commitment versus feelings

Slide 4

Explain how this touched my life. Explain Wayne Dyer’s life story, how he overcame obstacle after obstacle. Explain how “your will” is similar to “my will” in the 12 Steps of AA versus “God’s will” is synonymous with “concept of Spirit within you”.

Slide 7

Explain the difference between intentions made from the ego and the heart. Intentions made from the ego feel forced, do not resonate, and sometimes do not evolve. Intentions made from the heart, service, consciousness, resonate, give us the chills, sometimes create nervousness.

Slide 8

This or something better quote refers to the concept that sometimes we set intentions yet our ego or our mind might be limited to the endless bounty and possibility, therefore saying this allows the energy of the intention to know this or something better for ALL concerned. Sometimes our intentions are not for the highest good of all. Observe where your energy quote refers to noticing if things are moving in the direction of our intention and if not to make course corrective actions

Wayne Dyer Author of The Power of Intention and numerous other books. “Your will is the ego part of you that believes you're separate from others, separate from what you'd like to accomplish or have, and separate from God. It also believes that you are your acquisitions, achievements, and accolades. This ego will wants you to constantly acquire evidence of your importance... On the other hand, your imagination is the concept of Spirit within you. ...with imagination, we have the power to be anything we desire to be.”

Knowing “Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakens.” – Carl Jung How do I know what I want? Get quiet. Breathe in and out three times. Make a list of things you love to do, things you dream of doing Make a list of things you will do when you “have more money”, “have more time”, “when I retire”, “if I won the lottery” What do you find yourself daydreaming about? What do you limit yourself from doing out of fear of failure, doubt, old limiting beliefs? ~Intentions are best created when made from a place of knowing~

Committing “It was character that got us out of bed, commitment that moved us into action, and discipline that enabled us to follow through.” – Zig Ziglar Committing through decision (versus feeling or obligation) Committing through decision comes from clarity, conviction and choice Committing through feeling comes from wavering, wishy-washy and what is “wearable” Intentions made from commitment have propulsion that move us, in alignment, towards our goal ~Intentions are best created when from commitment and choice~

Slide 7

Creating “Nervousness is just another word for excitement” – Pat Peake Intentions are written in the present, positive tense For example: I am joyfully and creatively writing my book each day. Intentions are written as detailed as possible For example: I am joyfully and creatively writing my book each evening for 30 minutes before bed. Intentions are written with a heartfelt connection For example: Close your eyes, place your hand on your heart, say your intention out loud. Does it resonate? ~Intentions are best created when made from the heart~

Slide 8

Power of Intentions Create intentions that are 50% believable, 50% unbelievable. Include “This or something better for the highest good of all concerned”. Observe where your energy, actions and efforts flow and follow that line. Making course corrective actions when necessary, editing and updating intentions. Are there limiting beliefs, unworthiness, guilt, shame? If so, acknowledge, self forgive and release. This blocks us and our intentions. Exercise your intentions, this catapults you and them into action.

Slide 9

Exercise Start off small, test it versus trust it Create three heartfelt intentions Make it easy on yourself to incorporate them into your life. For example: Look at yourself in the mirror and say them out loud each day Or: Read them while you brush your teeth every morning and evening Or: Cut out photos that remind you of your intentions and look at them along with your intentions

Last But Not Least… Know You Are Worthy “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” – Marianne Williamson

And Don’t Give Up… Watch the video @ Nobody tells people who are beginners, and I really wish somebody had told this to me, is that all of us who do creative work, like, you know, we get into it. And we get into it because we have good taste. But it’s like there’s a gap that for the first couple years that you’re making stuff, what you’re making isn’t so good, Okay? It’s not that great. It’s trying to be good, it has ambition to be good, but it’s not quite that good. But your taste, the thing that got you into the game, your taste is still killer. And your taste is good enough that you can tell that what you’re making is kind of disappointment to you, you know what I mean? A lot of people never get past that phase, and a lot of people at that point they quit. And the thing I would just like to say to you with all my heart is that most everybody I know who does interesting creative work, they went through a phase of years where they had really good taste and could tell what they were making wasn’t as good as they wanted it to be. They knew it fell short. It didn’t have the special thing that we wanted it to have. And the thing what to do is everybody goes through that. And for you to go through it, going through it right, if you’re just getting out of that phase, you gotta know it’s totally normal and the most important possible thing you can do is do a lot of work. Do a huge volume of work. Put yourself on a deadline so that you know each week or each month you know you’re going to finish one story. Because it’s only by actually going through a volume of work that you’re actually going to catch up and close that gap. And the work you’re making will be as good as your ambitions. In my case, like I took longer to figure out how to do this than anybody I’ve ever met. It takes a while. It’s going to take you a while. It’s normal to take you a while and you just have to Fight Your Way Through That. Okay? — Ira Glass
