Setting Intentions for a Stellar 2024 – BY 9-FIGURE CEO, SUNEERA MADHANI

As the year draws to a close, it’s the perfect moment to harness the power of intention-setting. Setting intentions is more than a resolution; it’s a mindful commitment to the path you want to pave in the coming year. 


I like to start my intention-setting sessions with a visualization exercise. 

Envision the success you want to achieve in 2024. Visualization is a powerful tool that can fuel motivation and help overcome challenges. 


Imagine your business thriving, your projects succeeding, and yourself reaching new heights. Imagine you’re at the top of your game and start answering questions like: Where are you? Who are you with? How does it feel? What are you wearing? 


When I did this visualization just now, I imagined Suneera:

  • On a stage, wearing a suit, speaking to a crowd
  • I was calm and collected yet passionate. on a mission. 
  • My team was there cheering me on. 


And that was the visualization of my inner leader. When I want to wear my CEO hat more confidently, that’s who I channel, and I love channeling that Sunny before starting a new chapter, like the new year. 


Now, having created an empowered feeling after the visualization exercise, you’re ready to start setting intentions for 2024. 


Reflect on Your Journey:

Take a moment to reflect on the past. Acknowledge your wins, embrace your challenges, and distill the lessons learned. Understanding where you’ve been will illuminate the road ahead. .


Define Your Values:

Core values are the compass that guides your entrepreneurial journey. Define the values that are non-negotiable to you. Whether it’s integrity, innovation, or collaboration, let these principles be the foundation of your intentions.


Create SMART Goals:

Make your intentions concrete by turning them into Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-bound (SMART) goals. Break down your aspirations into actionable steps, making them more manageable and increasing the likelihood of success.


Pro tip: Don’t miss next week’s blog where I’ll be diving deep into how to turn big dreams into tangible steps. 


Embrace Positivity:

Cultivate a positive mindset. A positive outlook not only influences your approach but can also attract new opportunities and open doors.


Prioritize Self-Care:

Entrepreneurship often results in us losing balance and prioritizing everything and everyone else before ourselves, but don’t forget that your mind is your greatest asset as a CEO and you must take good care of it. 


Include intentions that focus on your well-being, whether it’s incorporating mindfulness practices, setting boundaries, or taking regular breaks to recharge.


Align Business with Passion:

Ensure that your business aligns with your passion. Identify projects and initiatives that set your heart on fire. Building a business is hard, but it doesn’t have to make you miserable. 


Cultivate a Support System:

Entrepreneurship is hard, but it doesn’t have to be lonely. Build a table with a circle of women who get you, who want to see you win, and who will propel you forward. Surround yourself with those who inspire, challenge, and uplift you.


Reminder: If your circle isn’t clapping the loudest for you to win, get a new circle. 


As you set intentions for 2024, remember that the process isn’t linear. Intentions can evolve as times change, and that’s perfectly okay. Stay flexible, be open to new opportunities, and keep showing up. 


Here’s to a year filled with purpose, growth, and the realization of your most empowering intentions!
