The first order of business on every "Getting What You Want" retreat is to define an intention for the trip. Thomas asks each participant what they want to accomplish and helps them define a crystal clear intention for the work ahead. This is not something you need to wait for the next intensive retreat to do. In order to create what you want, you must first clearly define an intention. Create one for every area of your life: Career, Money, Family, Love Relationship, and Self. Keep it concise, yet descriptive. A good example could be: "I want to create a new long-term, loving relationship this year so that I feel love, happiness, and connection."
