Rule #13 -- Intention Sets Direction

"Whether you think you can or you can't, you're right." - Henry Ford

In this 13th installment of the 18 Rules of Happiness, Karl Moore states that your intention sets your direction. How so? You may ask.

Have you ever woken up and felt it would be a good day? And you turn out to be right? Or perhaps woken up feeling really lousy and terrible and your day turned out to be disastrous?

You may not have caused it, but your expectation more often affects the outcome. Think of the times when you thought a project would be a failure and then it really becomes that.

What I do is I usually block out any negative thoughts or vibes in whatever project I wish to undertake. Thinking of the negatives makes me feel like I'm attracting them.

If your intention sets your direction, you may as well make sure you set the right and positive intention in place all the time.

Decide on how great your day will be and it will happen for you.

Set your sunny intention -- and you will be happy.
