I was attending a convention recently that I have gone to for the last five years. This year, as I stood sentinel at my booth, I felt tired.

The internal dialogue kicked in as I began to convince myself I should retire early and cut my trip short. Luckily, I stopped for a moment, and caught myself in the act of a negative thinking downward spiral. I stopped, took a breath and asked myself why I was there and what I wanted to create.
That answer was simple. My intention was to book business and to network. But, since I had little enthusiasm about this at the moment, I opened up to an intention that would support me in this moment. I proactively decided my intention was to have fun, meet new people and create business opportunities, but to put the emphasis on having a good time.
The belief I chose to use to reinforce this idea was, "I have fun wherever I go." Within minutes, a woman I have known for many years stopped by and we had a lighthearted chat. She invited me out to have a drink with her and some friends. Aligned with my new intention, I agreed.
I stopped by the restaurant that night and ended up having the time of my life. Not only did I meet new people, but I was booked to speak and picked up some new business at the same time. 15 Ways Your Self-Esteem Can Ruin Your Relationship
