Grover's approachable style makes implementing intentional practices accessible to all, be it through mindfulness exercises or setting clear goals.
The intention is not something that you do. Intention underlies the aspect of creation. It prods us to ask the question: "How do I want to feel in every aspect of my life?"
Each chapter concludes with a thought-provoking worksheet, serving as a valuable tool for introspection. This reflective pause allows for the assimilation of newfound knowledge and encourages readers to assimilate their thoughts before progressing further.
In addition to actionable steps, Grover emphasizes the importance of aligning our actions with our values and priorities. She compassionately urges readers to extend kindness and understanding to themselves as they navigate this transformative process.
Exploring the Book's Potential "The Intentional Being" offers a broad spectrum of intentional practices, including gratitude and self-reflection. Grover leaves no stone unturned as she explores our relationships with our parents, coworkers, and ourselves (most importantly!).
Even in its concise form, the book delivers a powerful reminder of the significance of intentional living. Grover manages to condense a wealth of wisdom into fewer than two hundred pages—a testament to her skill as an author. By the end, readers will have more clarity about where they wish to go with their lives and exactly how to get there.
