Why Intentions Work Better Than Goals

with Carl Powell

In this conversation with Mindful Movement Founder  Carl Powell, we talk about his latest book, as well as why setting goals doesn’t work, and why setting intentions is better than setting goals in manifesting what you truly desire–which is often much different than what you think you want. 

Carl also shares his top life lessons and how they have helped him set smarter intentions and how to choose faith over fear. Plus, these juicy topics:

How covid changed everything in the fitness and other industries, and how re-discovering your passion within the industry you are in can help you pivot toward something much more fun and interesting and in line with your deep desires.

Why the path to success in 2021 and beyond requires being open and relaxed with change, because change is the new normal. Also how to set smarter intentions to help you flow with change in the coming years. 

How learning to say Yes can change your life for the better and open you to opportunities that are reflect your deep intention eve if they seem out of alignment with your stated goals. 

How stealth intentions can work throughout your life in ways that your goal-oriented self could never call into being, and how using gratitude and curiosity can help shift fear to the faith you need to embrace change and out of the box opportunities.
