Creating Your Mission Statement

offering

INTENTION AS A MISSION STATEMENT

The word for Intention in Sanskrit is Sankalpa.  Ask yourself, “What happiness are you manifesting? Are you living a life you love?”

And in order to realize our greatest potential, to manifest our biggest dreams we have to take charge of our I AM statements answering this question:  Who Am I? This is the foundation of successful intention setting.

INTENTION SETTING

 “Our intention creates our reality.”Wayne Dyer

The thing always happens that you really believe in; and the belief in a thing makes it happen.” – Frank Lloyd Wright

Intention is the core of all conscious life.
 Conscious intention colors and moves everything.” – Master Hsing Yun

When you break down the process of what true intention really is, you will find a process that unfolds before you. By applying this process, you create your intention. Here is how you map out your intentions.

Ask yourself: What do you want to become or achieve? What would having it feel like to me?

  1. Have purpose (Vision Statement/Dharma): Your reason behind your intention is purpose. Having a purpose infers a more determined path.
  • What would you do with your life if no one could criticize or praise you?
  • How would you spend your time if no one else cared or was watching?
  • Would your life be very different? How? What does this tell you about how much power you give to other people and other people’s opinions?
  1. Design your intent: This means a specific, measurable (quantitative and qualitative), plan of action. What, when, why, where, how.
  2. Improve your aim (GPS): By improving your aim, you add to your target effort directed toward attaining your intention. Remember it’s hard to make a bull’s eye if you don’t know where you’re aiming.
  3. Include smaller items that will take little effort: manifesting smaller things actually creates a steady flow of energy and teaches us to appreciate the smaller goals as well.
  4. Reach your goal: The goal is the result of your intention, put into action and attaining it by thought out effort and consistent focus.

CREATE YOUR INTENTION LIST

  • Believe in the possibility that we can ALL be Spiritual Millionaires!
  • Create your list of 3 to 10 intentions (each month on the day of the New Moon)
  • Write them out using the words “I intend…” (Intention is not the same as wishing which is self-defeating and implies you can’t do it.)
  • Make copies and post where you can see them. Take a photo of it and make it your screen saver.
  • Review your list every day. (EG easy if it’s on your smart phone)
  • As your intentions come true, rewrite your list without that one on it. Add new intentions as you see fit.
  • Delete or replace intentions that are no longer relevant.
  • Share your intentions with positive friends or loved ones.
  • Repeat this affirmation “I will receive the things that I have intended.”

INTENTION SETTING POINTERS

Don’t live life by accident

How we Limit Ourselves:

  • Hide behind goals that are too big
  • Or lose inspiration because goals are too limited, and small
  • Tire out when goals are too showy (are they for you or others)
  • Don’t wake up and see what your life is and to the degree you are influencing it

Suggestions:

  • Allow failure
  • Surround yourself with like minded people
  • Cultivate collaboration and community

Your Intention Should Include:

  • Write it down and make sure its stated using active language
  • Needs to be specific.
  • Needs to be worded in the present tense.
  • Use your own words, keep it real.
  • Must be measurable, both quantitatively and qualitatively.
  • Must be memorizable
  • Needs to be achievable in the next 6-12 months.
  • Focus on the result you are seeking or the attitude, you intend to achieve or both.
  • In your heart, you must believe you can achieve your intention.
  • Must be stated in words you actually say.

EXAMPLES

  1. I take away people’s pain, shortcut it, prevent it where possible, and help them make that quantum leap to happiness.
  2. I enjoy my life more because I make time for my partner, family/friends, fun and adventure!
  3. I have a spiritual partner who shares my ideals and deep love for life. I am in love and happy. My relationship is a source of bliss.
  4. I practice meditation daily and it enriches every aspect of my life.
  5. I feel free. I am thriving!
  6. I am present. (implying no longer distracted)
  7. I believe in the power of Yoga to heal and transform. I create an environment where each persons strengths and passions are nurtured, guided and celebrated where practice in a safe, effective way with optimal alignment, self-compassion and enthusiasm with respect for yoga’s traditions and philosophies.
