Hiya Gorgeous!

When was the last time you walked into a high-pressure meeting completely prepared and at ease? Started a difficult conversation with a sense of peace and calm? For many of us, this might sound like an impossible dream. Maybe those types of situations make your mind race and your heart rate speed up. Or maybe the slightest hint of confrontation sends you running for the hills.

I’ve got news for you, sweet friend: it doesn’t have to be this way.

It’s about time I let you in on a little secret. There’s a way to approach whatever life throws your way feeling cool, calm and collected. You heard that right! And getting your hands on this secret will kick off a magical chain of events. It’ll lead you to a life filled with all the dreamy things you think about right before you shut your eyes at night. No magic wand required!

I’m talking about setting intentions.

I absolutely swear by this simple practice! It’s helped me grow my business, strengthen my health, improve my relationships and so much more.

I’ll give you an example:

I was recently invited to a fancy gala. I really wanted to go, but just the thought of it made my palms sweaty and my stomach do backflips. See, sometimes I get a little social anxiety. So, I knew I’d need the universe on my side to make it a positive experience. Before heading into the event, I took a minute to close my eyes and set an intention. I told myself I’d be present and connect with an open heart.

And guess what? The universe was there for me. I had a blast and made meaningful connections with some really inspiring people. My palms even stayed nice and dry! If I hadn’t set my intention, I might have skipped out on those conversations or shied away from introducing myself to wonderful new friends.

Our thoughts and actions create our reality. Setting intentions before you act gives your intuition (not to mention that ultra-positive inner light of yours) a chance to guide the outcome. You’re co-creating with life. Pretty cool, right?

So hit play and learn why setting intentions will set you up for success…

In this video, you’ll learn:

  • Why it’s critical to set an intention before any situation or big decision

Before we wrap, let’s do a quick review. Step one: set an intention. Step two: take big, brave steps toward your best life. Watch out, world!
