In another article I wrote about the ways I choose an intention of the day and the categories they fall into. In this article I’ll share more about the why and the how.
Following the advice of a dear friend
A couple of years ago I had never heard of setting an intention before you do anything. Now I set an intention every day and I often post it online if I have access to the Internet.
And what’s more: I close the day with writing down what I am grateful for, just like my friend Klaartje does every day. Well, she taught me to, and I am ever so grateful for her too.
I wrote another article of my development in the past two years. A lot has happened to me!
Why would the sky be te limit?
Most important part
The things I learned concern three fields: business, financial and personal development. Setting a goal is not only important for personal development. It works in business or in financial matters as well.
If you are not happy, your business will not thrive. If your business goes down the drain, you won’t have money. And when you have money problems you will probably not be happy. So all three areas are connected and equally important.
It’s all about living on purpose and taking control of your own life. You are not a cork that is spineless sent from pillar to post.
Of course circumstances can be very rough and you can’t control other people. But for me it works very well to realize that I can look at those circumstances in different ways.
Development in several areas
Starting one step at a time
My life is taking a different direction. One of the results is that I am writing for Squidoo.
I now have a Zazzle-shop.
I am writing a book about my profession, graphic design. For the time being it is in Dutch and I will teach people what they have to know to do part of their design themselves.
And all that is happening because I focus more and have a plan. It started with looking daily at this website Intention-of-the-day, then I moved on to 100 affirmations and now I am setting intentions and goals myself, posting them online.
This book is my nightstand book at the moment. It is a confirmation of what I have learned these recent years. And it is good to read another point of view, leading in the same direction. I can highly recommend reading it.
Not everyone reads a non-fiction book easily. Read a page a day of a significant book and you will have read two books in a year!
Start one step at a time
My life is taking a different direction.
- One of the results is that I started writing online.
- I now have a Zazzle-shop.
- I wrote a book about my profession, graphic design. For the time being it is in Dutch and I teach people what they have to know to do (part of) their design themselves.
- One of my projects is this website about personal development: Magical Moments of Need.
- I started a joint venture with my son. Our website is Muay Thai Pro.
And all that is happening because I focus more and have a plan. It started with looking daily at this website Intention-of-the-day, then I moved on to 101 affirmations and now I am setting intentions and goals myself, writing them down or posting them on the internet.
Things can change
What I have learned as well is to celebrate my accomplishments. I do that a lot nowadays by writing about it. This serves me, but hopefully it also serves others.
I get inspired by other people, I hope I can inspire you too.
I like dark humor. Do you?
