The Intentionomics Blueprint
– 9 Inescapable Truths For A Prosperous Life
This is a quick overview of the Intentionomics blueprint – the 9 inescapable truths for a prosperous business and personal life.
You’re probably aware by now that what started out as a few words written in preparation for a speech I was going to give at my two sons 21st and 18th birthdays that fell on the same weekend in May 2011 then grew over time through extensive research and validation, into what became my latest book “Intentionomics – the impact of your intentions on living a happy, flourishing and prosperous life.”
What you will discover here, and what the conference delegates will also discover as I reveal each of the nine inescapable truths is a deeper understanding of the importance of their intention (their bigger WHY). This is the premise of Intentionomics – your intention will have a direct impact on you and on others. It is your intention that creates the aspirational energy (physical and emotional) required to lead you to pursue and implement appropriate behaviours, strategies and connections to achieve your goals, success and prosperity.
Define what a prosperous work life means for you
This is an inescapable truth because if you can’t see it clearly enough to be able to define it, then how could you possibly ever reach it? This applies whether you’re defining a prosperous work life or personal life. Applying this inescapable truth starts with being thankful for what you already have, celebrating what you’ve already achieved and gaining clarity on who you need to be and what you need to do to create the right kind of environment and situation for you to be even more happy, flourishing and prosperous.
Take stock of your truth about you
People get your truth! Over time, your truth, intention and actions will either promote you or expose you. You can’t escape the need to be happy and proud of your own truth – with who you are as a person. And you can’t escape the need to work on being the person that you should be to live that prosperous work and personal life I keep referring to.
Define your intention for each business role
You might be parent, partner, friend, community volunteer or sports coach along with the roles you undertake in your career – business owner, leader, team member, consultant, lifestyle or business adviser, customer service or sales professional or whatever your role.
Why do you do what you do? This is really important to be able to answer and understand. It is your intention (your reason and your purpose for doing things) that causes you to feel pride… or not. Your intention will become clear over time to those with whom you come into contact. People get your truth.
Therefore your intention is what connects or disengages you in the personal and business relationships you have. It is an inescapable truth that for a prosperous life you need to define your intention for each life role.
Control your inner voice
Your inner voice is, of course, what you silently say to yourself. When was the last time you really tuned into those quiet, personal words? Your inner voice will affect how you feel emotionally and physically. And, in turn, how you feel about things influences your decisions and actions. It is therefore an inescapable truth that you need to tune in and take control of what your inner voice is telling you to be able to enjoy a prosperous life.
Develop intentional success habits
We are creatures of habit and often do things as though we are on autopilot. However, it is the steps we take without thinking, that can make the biggest differences in our lives, whether it be positive or negative. When are you just on autopilot? How might this be impacting on your success, relationships, conversations, endeavours or goals?
Pursue Intentional Aspirational Goals
Humans are aspirational goal-seeking beings. We have a tendency to want things that seem out of reach. These can be personal or business, or material or non-material goals. However, because all humans have this innate drive to seek aspirational goals, if you are not directing your energy towards the pursuit of those goals which match your real intention (whether in your daily personal or business life), you will feel as though there is something missing. This will then make it difficult for you to live a prosperous life. Your goal might be to pursue personal growth so that you can be the best person you can possibly be in each life role. Or your goal could be even more diverse and challenging. However, it is an inescapable truth that you need to pursue ‘intentional aspirational goals’ in order to live a prosperous life.
Build Intentional Trust Relationships
If you consider the times when you have felt the happiest in your life it will more than likely have been in the company of others. You don’t get trust, you earn it, and it is an inescapable truth for a prosperous life that you need to constantly do what needs to be done, living up to the promises you make to yourself and others, and to build intentional trust relationships in your personal and business life.
Develop a thirst for intentional learning
If you are not learning, you are not growing and if you are not growing, you are stagnating – how could that make anyone happy? You’re never too young or too old to learn and a thirst for learning is an inescapable truth for a prosperous life.
It’s your intentional choice
You can choose to change your life in the blink of an eye. Life is rich with examples of ordinary people who have made simple decisions to bring about change in their lives. They choose to stop smoking. They choose to become a better person. They boost their fitness and commit to a better diet through choice. And they get things done by choice. It is an inescapable truth that you will need to make intentional, wise decisions to live a happy, flourishing and prosperous life.
So there you have the Intentionomics Blueprint in the form of nine inescapable truths for a prosperous life.
Of course, I’ve only skimmed the surface of the research, validation and more importantly the practical application of these 9 inescapable truths.
In my presentations I pepper the content delivery with lots of humour, stories and audience interaction – it’s fun, they learn and they get real content that will make a difference to their success.
