Rewire Your Mind: How Intentions Can Change Your Life

by David Stamation, Executive Life Coach

Of all the tricks, tools, and coaching tips, it is the act of intention setting that stands alone in getting results. Want to find love? Desire to move up a level in your career? Want to reignite that spark in an important relationship? Want to get closer to your children? Want to feel better at the end of each day? Or do you want to reclaim a long-lost hobby?

Set an intention.

When you set an intention, it puts you on a glide path towards achieving it, encouraging flow and openness to possibilities that help bring about your desired outcome. In my experience, this is the most effective way to get the results you want.

Why don’t more people do it?

Put simply, we aren’t conditioned or taught to set an intention; it’s foreign to us. In coaching, I teach people new approaches, and intention setting is one of them. This involves rewiring some thinking and establishing new patterns and actions.

This morning, I set the intention to complete my administrative business tasks before I fly tomorrow. I said, "By the end of the day, I want to feel accomplished and complete." Writing this blog was one of those tasks, and I'm enjoying the feeling of accomplishment.

Setting an intention has a transformative effect on your day, no matter how big or small the intention may be.


The Stretch: Set a simple intention before the day starts for five straight days. At the end of each day, check in with yourself and assess how you feel. Note whether you think the intention influenced how your day went and how you feel.

*A “stretch” is taking a coaching tool or insight and applying it to your daily life. Putting it into action and testing then observing the result.
