Since the beginning of December, we’ve taken a journey of setting our intentions for the new year. We began by looking at the people and things that worked well for us this year. Then we made a conscious decision to set our intention(s) for the coming year. After that, we made a strong commitment to the changes we are willing to make to turn our intentions into reality. And lastly, we will take one final check to make sure that our intentions are in line with our destiny.
Goals, change, and intentions are wonderful to have. However, if they are not in direct alignment with our overall vision for our lives, it may take longer than necessary to get to us where we want to be. So, how do you know that you are aligning with your destiny? Simply put, the changes you wish to make will feel like a welcomed relief instead of a forced change. Deep in your spirit, you have longed for this change and find it difficult to dismiss. But for whatever reason, you felt unable to make the changes. Also, once we get serious about making a change, life is pretty good about giving us what we need when we need it. We begin to experience people and things that are suddenly available to help us through the transition. This is why setting intentions are powerful. Because once we have determined what it is that we want, then made the commitment to bring them into fruition, we unknowingly give ourselves permission to see and accept all the resources available to us for success.
“Faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead” (James 2:17 NIV). Have faith that you are a success. Actively put your plan into motion, and live as if you have already won the prize. Because no matter what is going on in your life right now, at this very moment, you are everything you need to become the person you want to be.
What positive changes are you making for 2015?
