Welcome back to Episode #38 of The Daily Interaction podcast. Today’s topic is on Bringing Your Intention to Every Interaction of The Daily Interaction podcast. How do you set an intention, what is an intention versus a goal, and what does this all have to do with your daily exchanges and interactions? I talk to you about how this approach to your communications and how making this small change in your social exchanges can really affect the outcome of those conversations, probably to your surprise!
Intentions are like promises to yourself, except without the guilt and the punishment and without the repercussions if you don’t meet your goals. They come from a deep place inside, and are focused more on the present than on the end result. Goals are wonderful things, they really are, and I’ve achieved a great deal living a goal-oriented life, and yet, I believe the subtle of intention is far beyond setting the greatest goals.
Intentions, by their nature, will also help you take away a far better view from undesired outcomes, such as an unfair dismissal at your job or an argument with your partner. What does it really mean that this situation happened? If you approach everything from a different place in your life, you will take away different messages even from seemingly negative outcomes.
In this podcast episode, I explain to you the differences and the exact way you can set intentions before your every interaction. So if you are ready to change the same way you have looked at things, and willing to embrace a new perspective, this episode is ideal for you!
