“Your Intention is a goal with soul behind it. Your intention has more energy behind it then simply a goal.” Mal Duane
We address our inner knowing by allowing ourselves to dream and wonder. Freely, yet intently pondering our Vision, Values, Purpose, and Mission solicits the truths buried in our heart, the deepest desires which will bring liberation and meaning to our fit in the universe. What would feel exciting, wonderful, or perfect? What are my highest aspirations? What is my vision for my life? Why am I here?
This is called ‘The vision building question’ by Kurt Wright. When I find out what I value, love and am doing so well…then I ask myself what other areas of my life would I love to upgrade, polish, value, and take care of…to the same high quality and level? What would be ideally right? This is called ‘the vision-building question’ that requires the high energy of commitment. Only those with well-established habits of exploring what works will have the energy required to pursue this question and create a vision. To prime your responses try asking, ‘Wouldn’t it be nice if …? Note the responses you receive and add them to your Question #3.)
Please Note: FUNDAMENTAL CHOICE: ‘A fundamental choice can provide the crucial difference in successfully making the shift from the reactive-responsive orientation to the orientation of the creative. Without making the fundamental choice to be the predominant creative force in your life, you will merely be finding more sophisticated ways of responding to circumstances….On the other hand, once you make the fundamental choice to be the predominant creative force in your life, any approach you choose to take for your own growth and development can work, and you will be especially attracted to those approaches that will work particularly well for you. Try and choose these four ‘Fundamental Choice’ intentions. Notice your energy after each chosen intention.)
1. I choose to be free.
2. I choose to be healthy.
(Try, ‘I choose to have a healthy, vital, well-toned physical body!’)
3. I choose to be true to myself.
(Being ‘true to yourself’ is telling yourself the truth about what you want and what you don’t want!)
4. I choose to be the predominant creative force in my life.
“Robert Fritz’s most astounding finding is that once an individual makes a conscious decision to be the predominant creative force in his or her own life, that life is changed forever: possibilities are born, projects open up other projects, and the practice of being true to yourself, your project, your vision of life, becomes more and more effortless. Most important, he dispels the notion that you have to be born “creative”; creativity is a skill that can be learned, practiced and mastered.”
As you shed new light on each question, your increased clarity and the precision details about who you are and what you want will begin to emerge. The Focus Journal© will assist and guide your thinking, enrich your attitude and create your new reality!
Be aware of conflating ‘positive’ and ‘negative’ thoughts, feelings, experiences, situations, etc. – make a distinction of these qualities in the appropriate response to the questions.
Try to envision a desired result as clearly as you can in as much emotional detail – how you would be, what you would have and be doing with this great result?
Again, also try to make desired outcomes in the four areas of: Health, Relationships, Environment and Vocation / Avocation / Purpose.]
