Setting Intentions, with Philippa Bennett
Welcome to Brand Builders TV! Deep-dive topics, tools and resources brought to you by global thought leaders from within the Brand Builders Club. This series gives you access to the strategies you can use to move forward in every area of your life and business.
In this series, Philippa is diving deep into how to move up the emotional scale. After identifying the starting point, and how you feel about the four main areas of your life, it’s time to now learn some techniques and strategies to move up.
Grief keeps us stuck down at the low end of the scale. While we can still experience feelings of joy and happiness, if we don’t learn the strategies to move up from grief and start to transform it, they can be little more than fleeting moments before we’re dragged back down again.
All of the articles in this series have been derived from Philippa’s Brand Builders TV episode, From Grief to Gratitude Part 2, How to Move up the Emotional Scale. If you’re a digital learner, then please, view the entire episode below. Otherwise, just keep on reading!
Enjoy this series. Learn it, model it and get shit done. Let’s go!
Meet Philippa Bennett
Philippa Bennett is a life coach who’s taking an alternative look at mental health, to reach more people and to make a bigger difference.
Now, without further ado, let’s hear what Philippa has to say about setting intentions, in her own words.
About Setting Intentions
Hello again! My name is Philippa Bennett, and this is my second article series with Brand Builders Club. All of these articles are taken from my Brand Builders TV episodes.
In the first series, I talked about the questions What Is Happiness? and What Is Grief? Then we looked at four important aspects of life: Relationships, Health, Livelihood and Finance. And we had a quick look at where you are on a scale of one to ten in those areas.
Of course, there are other parts of life to look at, but those were the four we covered.
In this three-article series, we’re going to be looking at how to move up the emotional scale. Before we get into how to do that, I want to talk to you very quickly about setting intentions.
What Setting Intentions Means
You might be thinking, setting intentions is just aiming to do something—but that’s actually quite different. That’s goal setting. Goal setting looks like, Today I’m going to mow the lawn, This week I’m going to get this piece of work done or I’m going to make sure I win the lottery on Saturday. Those are goals.
Intentions are more energetic and have more to do with what you’re going to get out of a situation. Before going into any activity, especially when we’re talking about emotions and things like moving up the emotional scale, we need to set a good intention.
For example, an intention might be, Today I choose to see the good in everything I do. Or, It’s my intention today to have good interactions with everyone I meet. If you’re going to do some energy work, it can be, My intention is to get the best out of this work or situation.
So that’s the difference between setting goals and setting intentions. Setting intentions is about what you want to get out of a situation on an emotional level.
Let's Start Setting Intentions
Thanks to Philippa, we now have a good handle on what it means to set intentions. No matter what intention you’re planning to set today, moving onto the second part of this series will help you to fulfill that.
In The Emotional Scale, Phillipa Bennett is going to introduce us to the 22 levels on the emotional scale. They go from Fear / Grief / Depression / Despair / Powerlessness at the bottom, all the way to Joy / Appreciation / Empowerment / Freedom / Love at the top. You’ll learn more about what’s in between, as well as some tips for moving up.
Setting intentions is one way to increase your energetic vibration, to move up that emotional scale. So let’s get on with setting those intentions…and to the second instalment in this series.
Have you been struggling to find people who act as good examples of positive, high-vibration energy? Do you want to raise the quality of your circle, so you can raise your personal and professional performance?
Then the Brand Builders Club is for you. So many people agree: It’s just what they needed to achieve their next level.
