How to Set Intentions That You Will Actually Accomplish

Manifesting Your 2022 Intentions

With the new year right around the corner I wanted to share with you some of the best tips for setting your 2022 intentions and how to actually MANIFEST your intentions. Before I got really clear about my intentions and manifestations, I actually struggled to accomplish my goals. Along my journey I have learned some techniques that have helped me set intentions that I can actually accomplish! So if you struggle to accomplish your new years resolutions, then this post is for you!

Setting Your Intentions

Who else is guilty of setting a goal at the end of the year and then within the first month of trying to accomplish the goal, you either forget about it, push it off or just give up?

When it comes to going after goals I find there’s a few different reasons people often give up.

  1. They aren’t getting the results they wanted quick enough
  2. They get overwhelmed by their goals
  3. They procrastinate and push the goal off until they forget about the goal all together.

When it comes to setting intentions it’s really important to be HONEST with yourself. I know we like to reach for the stars and there is nothing wrong with that, however, sometimes big goals can overwhelm us. If we are setting unreasonable goals for ourselves, when we don’t accomplish them this can subconsciously create self doubt.

What I’ve learned is that building consistency when it comes to our goals and intentions can actually boost our confidence and help us achieve more in the long run. It’s okay to have a really big goal, but setting smaller, more reasonable goals will actually help in the long run. It also helps when it comes to procrastination. Sometimes we can procrastinate because we fear that we won’t be able to actually accomplish what we want to accomplish.

For example, let’s say you set a goal to make $100,000 in 2022.

If you have any lack of confidence or any fears surrounding this goal, you might actually subconsciously push it off.

Maybe you have a fear of failing, or fears that people will judge you, whatever it may be, fear can actually hold us back and make us procrastinate when it comes to going after our goals.

Setting an intention to make $100,000 in 2022 is a great intention, but it’s an overwhelming one.  

What I found to be really helpful is to get SUPER CLEAR on your intentions and then create small, actionable intentions that help you take action to achieve those overall big intentions.

It’s really important that our intentions help us to see where the action is needing to be taken. Without knowing what action you should take, you may get overwhelmed and procrastinate on the goal.

As an example, one of my intentions for 2022 is to get clear when it comes to my personal brand and to be more consistent when it comes to creating content. The key here is for me to break this down so I know EXACTLY what I need to do to make this happen.

So how can I be more consistent?

It could look like me posting every other day on Instagram, publishing a new podcast episode once a week, uploading a YouTube video weekly, Sending out a monthly newsletter to my email list.

You see what I mean? This is a lot more actionable and it helps me to see EXACTLY what I need to do in order to achieve this one big intention.

Let’s say you want to lose 20 pounds in 2022, okay great, but HOW will you accomplish this?

Is it by running every other day? Working out for 30 minutes a day? Cutting out sugars? These are the intentions you want to set because it’s an intention that allows you to take action.

Manifesting Your Intentions

Now that you have your actionable intentions, how can you add in a bit of the magic of manifesting?

First, you have to think about how this intention will make you feel once it happens. What is your why? If you are wanting to manifest $100,000 in 2022, what would it feel like to have this?

When I was manifesting my car this year I knew that having my car would feel like freedom. The freedom to drive anywhere when I wanted to.

Manifesting is all about shifting your energy to align with what it is you are trying to attract. When you FEEL as if you already have it, as if it’s already yours, that’s how you align energetically.

I had to show up daily BEING that version of myself who felt free. Even if I didn’t have the freedom to go wherever I wanted to yet, I had to focus on aligning my energy to that feeling regardless. If I focused on the restrictions that I had in my life without my car, then that would create resistance. You don’t want to focus on lack, because what you focus on is what you attract. When you are focusing on what you lack, you are creating the resistance of receiving and therefore just manifesting more lack into your life.

So what does accomplishing your intention FEEL like? Let the WHY be your focus and show up BEING the person who already FEELS this way regardless.

Think about, when we effortlessly believe in our manifestations, they usually happen because it causes less resistance.

It’s like when you go to the store knowing that you will be able to buy milk and eggs. You usually don’t go to the store with the mindset that you won’t be able to buy these things. This creates less resistance, of course there will be eggs and milk for me at the store, so it effortlessly appears.

This is the kind of energy you want to be in. Believing that you can effortlessly have what you want.

It’s like when you want a new car and you get really specific, constantly focusing on manifesting it. All of a sudden you are seeing the car you want to buy show up everywhere, because you attract what you focus on.

Start thinking, Of COURSE I’ll be able to make $100,000 this year, and as you take that inspired action towards your actionable goals to achieve this, you will see the results.

BUT you have to be honest with yourself. If there are any limiting beliefs or resistance on your part that you need to work through, it’s important to reframe those mindset blocks. It takes practice and it’s not easy, but eventually you will find yourself at this point in your life where you are able to manifest whatever you desire.

And this is how you set intentions and manifest!

Hopefully this helped you a bit! Remember, being consistent with yourself builds up confidence within you and lets go of that self doubt!

Sending you all of my love, until next time
