Purpose and Intention
What are intentions and why are they important?
No matter who you are, where you are right now, no matter what you want – Intention Matters!
Intentions big and small underpin your every action and already influences every aspect of your life. Over 95% of all brain activity occurs at an unconscious level. Intentions guide your actions and underpin your decisions. If you are unclear of your intention and purpose - why you do what you do and what is really important to you - you will never get what you really want from life.
As a researcher and teacher specialising in the neuroscience of intention and positive psychology, I can help you to discover your true purpose and intention in life. Doing so will enable you to align your life for success, and focus on what matters.
PURPOSE = 'Why I do what I do' Its your reason for getting out of bed in the morning. it may have local impact or global impact.
INTENTION = Your inner GPS. Intentions focus attention to make things happen
Intention has two essential components: DSD+B
' A Deep Sincere Desire' We call this a 'DSD' Its something you really want at a heart felt level
Belief. 'B' You have to have belief that in some way, somehow it is achievable and will happen. Don't worry about the 'how' - that comes later.
Whether you dream of changing the world, escaping the rat race, earning a monthly five-figure income, living more and working less, or finding happiness, the starting point is clarity of purpose and intention.
Recent research highlights the powerful role that intention plays in transforming a desire or wish into reality. Applying the I-AM© and IDEA© models, we will help you apply an evidence based approach to working with intention and help you overcome any limiting mind sets that may get in the way.
I cannot promise you instant results or miracles. There is no magic bullet. What I can promise you is that with a little time and effort you can achieve your aims in life, goals and dreams. You can improve your focus and performance at work. You can become successful in your chosen specialism. All you need is time and knowledge of how to work with intention.
