The Power of Intention
"When you say 'I intend to' you place yourself in an active role, create a connection between yourself and that action, add the intended action to your mental to-do list." From my book, The Curious Dreamer's Guide to Dream Interpretation.
Chapter 4-7 "Setting Intentions" explains the power of intention, and how to use intentions as a tool for creating more of what you want in your life. Here's an excerpt:
"An intention is a kind of commitment you make within yourself to act or think in a certain way. It is a determination toward a certain action or result.

When you state that you intend to take a particular action, that action automatically gets added to your mental to-do list, and a portion of your mental energy becomes dedicated to making sure you follow through on it.
"Within your consciousness, an intention dedicates more mental power for follow-through than a want, hope, or possibility...."
