What do you think about the coming day?
Do you think it’s going be a good one, or a bad one, or do you just sleepwalk into the day in a kind of fatalistic way letting it happen around you and to you?
Do you think it would make a difference in your experience of the day if you looked for the good, or the bad, or nothing?
In my experience, it does make a difference. But don’t believe me. For a few days, try your own experiment.
At the start of the day, or even the night before, imagine the things on your to-do list for the coming day turning out well, and imagine being grateful for your success and the gifts it brings.
At the end of the day reflect on what was different.
Did you discover that you do indeed have some level of control on how the day turns out?
Here is some more on the amazing power of intent.
My best wishes, Paul
