At times in our lives, we may find ourselves floating aimlessly along, never focusing on our day or how we want to go about making it successful. Frankly, we are just happy to wake up in enough time to get to work on time and go through the motions, but those times stop now lovies. It is time for us to be positively intentional as we approach our days. What is being positively intentional, well my definition of it is, establishing a positive mindset and course of action on purpose. In order for us to design the lives we desire, we must first begin by designing our days. Everything begins with a thought and what we think of most comes to fruition; therefore, we have to focus our thinking on what we want to happen. Here are my 3 tips on how we can establish a positively intentional mindset.
Wake Up and Pray
There is something about the power of prayer, especially in the morning when things are still and quiet. It is almost like you feel the prayer pushing through to the heavens to reach God’s ear just before you have to start your day. Praying sets your day in motion because you have now covered your day with the necessary spiritual blanket needed to guide you. Here are some of the elements of prayer that I utilize.
- Thank God – I typically thank Him for protecting me through the night and waking me up in the morning. I thank him for being a good God and for all the many blessings he has given me and has in store for me. I thank him for a sound mind and good health, etc.
- Forgiveness – If I need to repent of anything that I did that wasn’t covered in my nightly prayer then I ask God for his forgiveness and then thank him for being the God of a 2nd chance.
- Request – This is a time when I ask God for anything I desire such as a good day, productivity at work, peace of mind, success on a project, emotional stability or whatever I feel like I need. I even pray for my future husband and that I am an excellent future wife. This is also the time where I would pray for others like friends and family.
- Covering – I then cover everything I have prayed for in the blood of Jesus to seal it and send it to God’s ears. Sometimes we don’t think God hears us, but that is not the case at all. There are evil forces that are working against us in the spiritual realm and sometimes those heavenly angels are just battling to get our petition and our blessings through.
Be Thankful and Set Your Course
When you wake up in the morning, after you pray, then you should write down 3 things you are thankful for and set three goals for the day. When we focus on what is positive in our lives already, we set our mind to be positive for the remainder of the day because that is what we are focused on prior to actually leaving our house. It is important to set goals for the day whether it be personal goals like working out or eating healthy or business or professional goals like finishing a project or pitching an idea. When we plan out even the seemingly little task and show an attitude of gratitude we not only create amazing days; we create successful weeks and months.
I cannot stress how important it is to speak positively about your life. It is a critical part of the law of attraction. We have what we say. The words we put out into the universe have life, so we need to be very careful about what we say. Instead of saying I’m broke, say, I have more than enough money to do everything I need to and splurge. This may not be your present state, but it is creating the space for it to come into your life. I take every area of my life and ask myself the question, what do you want? My six main areas are Spiritual, Physical, Emotional, Social, Relational, and Professional. If you are having a hard time developing these affirmations, don’t worry I post a positive affirmation on my Twitter every morning at 6:30 a.m. I also am starting an “Affirm Yourself” live video from my Instagram account every Thursday at 12:00 PM CST you can tune in to. If that is not enough, I also have a list of 60 positive affirmations you can say in one of my previous blogs. Pick whichever one suits you and I got you.
These 3 simple steps will have you manifesting your phenomenal future like never before. I guarantee not only will you feel better, you will live a more grateful, positive, and productive life that will take you on an amazing journey.
Until next time lovies…speak no evil and only speak life.
