Unlocking Success: Reflecting on Your Intentions 

Have you ever taken a moment to pause and ask yourself, “What are my intentions in my life, my relationships, my health and my career?” It’s a complex and profound question that can have a huge impact on your life. In today’s fast-paced world, where you often find yourself caught up in the hustle and bustle of daily life, it’s easy to lose sight of your true intentions and goals. But taking the time to reflect on your intentions can be a powerful tool for personal growth and success.

Why Intentions Matter

Intentions are the driving force behind your actions and decisions. They are the compass that guides you through life, helping you stay focused on what truly matters to you. When we have clear intentions, we are more likely to make choices that align with your values and lead you toward your goals. On the other hand, when your intentions are unclear or misguided, you may find yourself feeling lost, unfulfilled, and disconnected from your true self.

Getting Clear on Your Intentions

So, how can you get clear on your intentions? It starts with self-reflection. Take some time to sit down and think about what you truly want in life. What are your long-term goals and aspirations? What are the values and principles that matter most to you? What do you want to achieve in your career, relationships, and personal development?

How Your Core Values Help Figure Out Your Intentions

What do you really want to experience in your life?  What can you spend more of your time and energy doing that will help create what you want?

Your values will help you cultivate and develop more of what you want.  Your superpowers are qualities that you can use to get you there.

If you are not clear about your core values, you are more likely to be driven by expectations.

When you act according to your values, you are inspired and enthusiastic to behave in harmony with them.

When you know what you value most, it is easier to make choices and take actions based on what is most important to you.


1. Make a list of the values you want to move towards.  Pick words or phrases that are meaningful or think of a person you admire.

2. Here is a list common core values: accountability, adventure, compassion, connection, contribution, creativity, discipline, empathy, excellence, freedom, friendship, fun, independence, integrity, kindness, learning, love, loyalty, personal growth, respect, self expression, service, trust, truth, wisdom.

3. Notice if some of your values naturally group together like family, friends, conversation and love all are components of connection. Self expression, joy, inspiration and authenticity are part of creativity. Contribution and personal growth can be grouped under service.

4. Write them somewhere you can review and remember them daily.

Anytime you notice yourself moving away from something because of your avoidance trap, shift your focus to what you want to move towards, your values…connection, courage, faith.


Commit to taking at least three action steps toward your dreams using your core values to inspire you.

If you don’t know your long term vision that’s okay, because all you need is your core values that  you want to experience.

For instance, if your value is abundance and you want to travel, an action step would be to create a budget to make that happen.

If your value is to be creative and collaborative, sign up for an improve class or volunteer to be on an arts committee.

If your value is self expression, you could sing every morning or send your book idea to a publisher.

If your value is connection, you could call or email a family member every day or go to a networking event once a month.


Your focus needs to be on taking action, not an expectation of a particular outcome.

Create a commitment contract with yourself right now that lists at least three action steps you will take from a place of inspiration.

Make it official by typing it out and begin each line with “I [your name], commit to [action step].”

Sign and date it and print it out.

You will be even more successful if you find an accountability partner.  It could be a friend, coach, colleague.  Choose someone you feel comfortable confiding in and who will not tolerate excuses about why you are not keeping your word to yourself.

Ask them to follow up with you on a certain date.

If you do not end up following through on your commitment, do not go into resignation and self criticism.  Simply renegotiate and recommitment to new steps.


If you find yourself procrastinating, break it down to small first steps.

Keep your values in mind or the tedious steps of reaching your goals may stop you.  Redirect your thoughts toward your positive outcome that inspires you.
