How To Get What You Intent To Create

Intention Explained By A Master

Lately, I discovered that when I want something too much, the results are not in my favour. I make changes all the time, that’s when my Facebook campaigns lose traction. I experience a lack of money. I get stressed and I feel unfulfilled. This happens to me very often. But luckily I found a way out of here.

That’s why I was so happy to discover “The Power Of Intention” by Wayne Dyer. Being more relaxed in the things I do and living by Intent are things I really long for.

To give a glimpse of what Wayne Dyer means by Intent, I give you the 7 faces of Intention:

1) Be creative: staying creative means giving form to your personal intentions. In my case, this means being of service to others

2) Be kind: be kind to yourself, be kind towards others, be kind towards all living beings. All on earth is meant to thrive.

3) Be love: you are born out of love, you have to be love to align with Intent.

4) Be beauty: if you awaken to your true nature. You will see the beauty in everything you see, hear and touch. Beaty is what you are.

5) Be ever-expansive: the Universe that you are part of is ever-expanding and growing and so are you meant to be.

6) Be abundant: giving and receiving are part of the same whole. If you give you will receive and this is how abundance comes into being. Furthermore: there is no scarcity in the Universal mind of Spirit.

7) Be receptive: stay connected and be sure that you will receive everything the Universe is capable of giving.

All these concepts are building blocks for an abundant life and just a tiny bit of what this audiobook has to offer.

The book really changed my life and I wish you the same!

What I want to share with you before finishing this post: the one thing I did to align my intention to my actions was starting my own digital business. A business that gives me all the possibilities to create a life that I love.

How to Stop Putting Things Off And Start Getting Stuff Done

To be honest even while writing this blog post I am procrastinating. Not willing to cope with the fear that I write the wrong words, or can’t write at all. Thinking of it there’s no logic at stake. As a result, I have to finish this piece on a Sunday evening. And during the day, it gives me a bad feeling. Why didn’t I do it this morning?, I keep repeating.

That’s an important thing to notice: procrastination is not logic. Procrastination is also not being lazy. Dr Fuschia Sirois (professor of psychology at the University of Sheffield) says it is all about avoiding unpleasant emotions. The solution lies not in trying to manage your productiveness. But in learning to cope with negative emotions.

So we procrastinate to avoid negative feelings. We end up feeling even worse:

We see our future selves as strangers, which means that a future task is not our problem.

Utterly simplified there are two types of procrastination: short term and long term. Short term procrastination have a deadline e.a. writing a paper, doing the dishes, filling in your taxes.  Long term procrastination doesn’t have one: Build your own business (here’s how I created my digital business); Start dating for real; Finally begin with losing weight. If you take this into consideration everyone is a procrastinator.

Please tell me if you’re not;-)

How to build a digital business around your passions?

When I was a (freelance) copywriter I was working with my creativity every day. Coming up with new ideas and put them into words was business as usual. But still, I had the idea that I was not capable of delivering. Strange enough the creative flow always turned up. My problem was: lack of self-worth and trust.

Maybe it was the pressure of having to deliver new ideas all the time. Or the fact that others decided if my work was good enough. But the biggest threat was my own perfectionism. I started undervaluing my work. As a result clients start noticing that: I didn’t get paid what I’m worth. In the end I was so frustrated that I got burned-out. I was forced to stop doing what I did.

Why is the secret of living a purposeful life

After a breakdown, I discovered my why was key to a life with purpose. The same month the work of Simon Sinek gave me the tools to find it. But it was not before I came across a 4-Part Digital Business Course that I set the next step. Today I’m a life coach and digital business owner.

What’s your why? Maybe the single most important question in your quest to happiness. But also when you want to start a successful business. Someone who made this idea his life mission was Simon Sinek. “Everything I do is devoted to one idea: to inspire people to do what inspires them, so that we can together change the world for the better.” Starting with why is so much more compelling than starting with what. Compare ‘we sell beautiful phones’ with ‘we inspire human interaction’. Why speaks to your emotions, while what speaks to your brain. Great companies as Apple and Nike all start with why.

What about great leaders, they don’t give you a list of what they want to achieve. Martin Luther King said “I have a dream that one day…”. Simon Sinek says: “People don’t buy your product, they buy what you do.” He says too: “Discovering your why is like panning in the river of the past for gold.” It takes time but you know that it’s there.

When I was a copywriter I had no idea about my why. I just wanted to earn money. But underneath I was unhappy and unfulfilled. One day I saw a short YouTube video with the idea of Simon Sinek.  After that, I started looking for my Why. I found out: I wanted To help people believe in themselves So That they can live a life worth living too.

Ikigai: how to find your life’s purpose

After being stuck in my 9-5 job. I needed a burn-out to wake me up. It was only then that I took the time to go and travel to Bali. I went to Africa to enjoy the beach and snorkel in the ocean. But most important: I started looking at what kind of job could give me fulfilment.

To live a long and happy life, that’s where the Japanese concept Ikigai stands for. It’s a treasure guide to find your life’s purpose. A job is what you do to pay the bills. Work, on the other hand, is there to achieve a purpose or a result. That could be a more meaningful you.

Where does Ikigai come from? It’s originated in Okinawa: the most over 100 year old live here. But besides Ikigai there’s another thing from Okinawa: Karate. It literally means: empty hands. Ikigai means: life’s worth.

Ikigai has 4 directions:

•          Do what you love

•          Do what you’re good at

•          Do what the world needs

•          Do what you can be rewarded for

I got my yellow belt in Ikigai in my fourth year in college.  I did choose to be a copywriter. I read all about it. And took all the effort to get a job in advertising. But after some time doing it. A question in my mind kept repeating: why am I doing this?

Just this last year I have found what my Ikigai is. I want to help people find their purpose.  How would I do that? By being a life coach and create value with a digital business.

Change your story, change your life

Here are the 3 steps I know that are working for me to create a breakthrough:
How you’re taking control of your story, story and state can fuel lasting change…
Tony Robbins inspired me big time creating this blog post…

Is it luck that creates the quality of life that someone gets? That’s what I thought: biography is destiny. I knew for sure I couldn’t do anything to bring change into my life.

Tony Robbins says that not the ones who grew with everything. But the ones that are most hungry are able to change.

In fact the people that endured the most in their lives are the most successful. One brilliant example is Oprah Winfrey. Her mother was 13 when she was born: a child raised by a child. Her father was not there. She was sexually abused more than once. But still she became one of the most successful woman on the world.

Saturday Motivation: How To Achieve Success

I always had the idea that I had to chase goals to get happy. When I get my University grade I’m happy.  When I’m a senior copywriter I will feel accepted. When I meditate for an hour I will be at ease. But none of them is the case. I didn’t feel more successful than before.

After time, I understand that success is in fact an Inside Job. What helped me is asking myself a question. How have you been looking at outside circumstances to feel good and accepted? It has so much to do with wanting to control. And although those achievements will satisfy for a short time. It’s just for a moment and the next goal is waiting for you already.

But true power lies in ourselves. It’s only there where we can find it. We can get there with our daily practice or meditation. I talk about Inner Success but it not about staying inside. You can bring that mindset in the outer world. Ultimately you will see a reflection of this in your ventures and successes.

I hope you learn as much from this short video as I do…

Have a nice day. I’ll write you next Saturday!

What if you could start every morning with a smile?

Two of the most important things for personal growth that I consider are meditation and reading. They both help me to be more conscious of things and be more in the moment. A brilliant byproduct of meditation is that it keeps you focused and makes you more productive. It’s not for nothing that most successful people say they meditate in one way or another.

Sometimes I lose track of the habit. The method I use is starting to do it again is doing it for 10 days in a row for ten minutes. After a while, it becomes natural. When meditation is not something you don’t do very often you can use an app as headspace or do a guided meditation.

Should You QUIT Your Job?

This Is The Introduction To The Video I Want People To See


I hope you’re having a great Day!

Today I want to share a powerful message from Joe Rogan. He says that torturing ourselves by doing the same thing over and over again, e.g. working for a boss we don’t like, is worth questioning. 

This is something I experienced before I started my entrepreneurial journey. To get what I was searching for, I had to look for new ways of doing things compared to before. 

Was it easy? Definitely not! Throwing ourselves outside of our comfort zones and into the unknown is always scary, but that’s the only place where the treasures we want can be found! 

Watch the video here.

 Have a great day!
