June 1, 2020


At the start of 2020, I decided I was going to swap the word “resolution” with “intention”. Due to the current COVID-19 crisis, I’ve decided to carry this decision through to the new financial year and I’d love for you to join me!

The definition of an intention has a small, but obvious difference compared to a resolution.

Resolution (n): “A firm decision to do or not to do something.”

Intention (n): “Something that you want and plan to do.”

At the end of the day, setting an intention involves planning. Think about it – when you make a plan and work hard to execute each step, you #getshitdone. So, instead of setting resolutions that can easily come and go, try setting intentions that will help you live as the best version of yourself every single day. After all, the beginning of the new financial year is the perfect time to reflect on what you’ve learned about yourself in the past financial year, and how you’d like to grow within your business over the next 12 months.

Spiritual Gangster recently shared a few tips for setting your intentions in 2020 and beyond. They were too good not to share and can be applied at any given time.

  • Sit and reflect on what elements of your life are most important to you. What brings you the greatest joy? What fuels your fire? What fills you with a sense of purpose?
  • Make a list of your intentions and desires. Share it with someone close to you who will be supportive and help keep you focused on realising those intentions.
  • Create a short mantra that will serve as your daily reminder, and use it during yoga, meditation and any other quiet moments when you can set your focus.
  • Let go and trust yourself and the universe. You can’t force the outcome, just plant the seeds and watch your intentions bloom when the time is right.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
