The One Tool You Must Have to Manifest Business Abundance

Setting clear intentions for your business is the opportunity to take full responsibility for creating your business the way you really want it to be. When you set an intention, you first get very clear about your desire, and then you ask for guidance by being willing to partner with the divine without a sense of entitlement or demand. Then the energy of your desire is sped up, because you’ve actively embraced your ability to solve any problem that comes your way.

Think of it this way:

Intention = Desire + Asking For Guidance = Sped Up Energy = Manifestation

It is an activation of a supreme confidence that you will put the right energy into your actions and into the resolution of any problem.

Getting very clear about what your intention is keeps you on a focused path and your energy running clean. It helps you to stay away from the “I should”, “I ought to, “I have to” or other fears and doubts that may creep in when making business decisions.

You want intentions to be at the forefront of every move you make in your business.

Inner Intentions:

Setting an inner intention for yourself allows you to get clear about how you want to feel, what energy you want to activate. Your desired feeling state is what lies beneath any physical desire.

For example, you may tell yourself that you want more clients. But, why do you want more clients? What do you believe more clients will give you? What are you REALLY wanting?

By clearly setting an inner intention right from the start, you will begin to take actions that connect to that inner intention. If your inner intention is happiness, your body will really feel it if you start to do something that doesn’t make you happy.

Trust me. Eventually, all of your actions will begin to automatically line up with your inner intention (and if that’s what you REALLY want anyway, isn’t that a HUGE YAY?) You will start to do whatever you have to do to avoid that which does not match your inner intention. And miracle of miracles, your outer circumstances will respond to your inner intentions as well.

Hint: It doesn’t matter if you don’t know HOW to create that inner intention. All that matters is that you get clear about it. Actually, anything worthwhile that I’ve manifested I never knew the how of it; I just believed that it would be so.

Outer Intentions:

Setting an inner intention puts your energy on solutions by removing the “unwanted” first from your mind. Your outer intention puts your focus on what you want to create. This moves the focus away from only “what is” to “what will be”.

If at this moment you have three clients but you want ten, and you continue to focus on “only having three clients”, can you guess where your client numbers are going to stay? That’s right-at three!

By setting a clear outer intention you keep your focus on forward rather than on stuck, and even more importantly, away from “not enough”. This is the biggest stumbling block (and I’ve done it myself) I see entrepreneurs make-they cling to how much they do not have. It’s used as a rationalization, reasoning and proof that “it can’t be done”. It doesn’t even matter what it is. I’ve heard it used every which way.

If you find that you do this, starting right now, begin to raise your energy level by keeping yourself connected to YOUR inner and outer intentions.

Your Call To Action:

1. Take a moment to get connected to your own, personal, Success Field. Really feel that force around you.
2. While really tapped into your energy, bring to mind something you desire to bring about for yourself and your business.
3. Now what’s the feeling behind your desire?
4. Turn that into an inner intention.
5. Go back to your business desire. What’s an action you could take that would support the creation of that desire?
6. Turn that into an outer intention.
7. State it out loud:

“My inner intention is ________________”

“My outer intention is ________________”

Get Real About Your Business

How would you like to have a Truly Profitable business and life?

Here’s how:

I heartily recommend a process that’s easy and most importantly, effective to do. It’s called a Time Audit. This simple, yet powerful process will help you to clear away the “fluff” from your weekly schedule so that you spend your time and energy on what really matters most.

Here’s what happened for my client…

I recently coached one of my clients, Jim, on how to do this process. This 30 minute exercise instantly showed him where the “time leaks” were in his business. He carefully evaluated all of his memberships and committee commitments and then streamlined his schedule by letting go of the groups and organizations that were no longer in perfect alignment with his goals. (Sometimes we get comfortable in our routines and stay on in roles and programs that are no longer a good fit.)

Jim’s results?

His activities are now “high-return” and making these shifts immediately brought him closer to his professional and personal goals, which meant higher-end clients and more “flex” time in his schedule to create and implement new profitable projects.

Time is your most precious commodity. Period.

Here’s what to do: Take 20-30 minutes to sit down and do a review of how you spend your time. Grab a pen,some paper and get down to business. (Tip: schedule your Time Audits quarterly to keep track you time and Return on Investment or ROI.)

Doing the time audit will immediately and precisely how you spend your time. It may shock you. The Time Audit will explain why you “never” seem to have enough time! The information you glean will allow you to decide which activities are “keepers” and which to let go of.

Be completely honest with yourself and write down on paper or computer what each of regular on-going commitments (be sure to include business and personal). This means all clubs, organizations, meetings, lunches etc. EVERYTHING. Add up the total amount of time you expend each month. Be sure to account for everything…drive time to and from events, extra social get-togethers, buddy lunches, etc.

Great job. Now you’ve got a very clear picture of how and where you are investing your time and energy.

Here are a few important questions to ask yourself:

*Is this commitment truly serving me in the highest possible way?
*What is my ROI?
*Is it time to move on?

Design your day with high-return activities. (I define high-return activities to include both business & personal items which bring you closer to the money AND what energizes you). Try this process. I promise that doing so will give you an abundance of time, energy and cash flow. Carpe Diem!
