So clear, rono and RandomJohn and others who've addressed this !
Sometimes I find myself phrasing an intention one way when I start, then refining it further to really transfom the "wants" into "haves" and so on. Sometimes what I think I want is really a proxy for what I really want, or there is something I need to have clear and more immediate which is more important or just needs to come before what I think I want. Something I could have now, for example.
Just as a handy example:

If I want to become a millionaire for instance, is that really what I want? Maybe it's not the specific number of $ at all ( a million isn't what it used to be anyway
). So maybe I can develop that idea further...
"I am grateful for my wealth in all things important to me. Both my gratitude and my wealth are in continuous development without limitations",
....for me, I add my introduction up front to put all this into the context that works for me ("in an easy and relaxed manner, in a healthy and positive way, for the highest good of all, in its own perfect time, in good faith and in good humor")
It's a little tricky at first isn't it?
