Episode 65 is all about the power of intention and expectation. I have combined these two powerhouse tools into one episode because they quite often work hand in hand and we have the tendency to mix the two up without realizing it. This unfortunately can lead to disappointment and frustration. The great thing about this holiday time of year is that it gives everyone a reset if you will. A chance to tap into spirit and intentions of living up to our highest potential going forward. That is always a win in my book.
So when we apply intention to goals and goal setting it allows for the achievement of those goals much easier than if we set an expectation to achieve them. Expectation tends to rely on attachment to outcomes. And to some degree that is fine when you are relying on YOUR abilities alone to do something, but not when you try to put those expectations on others. That is when we get ourselves into trouble. The biggest thing expectation can do for you is encourage you to raise the bar on what you are capable of.
“Intentions are feelings and expectations are beliefs. You need both to achieve your greatness.”
– Tanya Tringali

Erma Bombeck once said-“When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say- ‘I used everything you gave me.’ I love that!! And that is what we should be aiming for all the time. That is what the personal development tools of expectation and intention can help you to achieve.
