What is a vision board?
It’s creating a visual representation of what you envision for your life. It allows you to define and clarify your aspirations, reinforce them and keep your intentions focused. You can put anything on the board: where you want to travel, your career path, the type of home or car you want, do you want children, a family… Whatever you want in this lifetime. And once you create yours, it’s there to keep you inspired and motivated to move forward in life.
How to throw a vision board party
When you throw a vision party, ask your friends to each bring a bunch of magazines, so you have plenty of material to choose from. The more variety the better. Additional, ask them to bring any personal photos or visual materials from on-line they might want to use for themselves. The host can provide glue, poster boards, glitter, stickers and snacks.
Bring your vision to life
It’s not enough to just create the board. You need to change your routine and surround yourself with your vision.
So take a picture of it and put it as your screen saver, on your phone, somewhere in your bedroom or bathroom where you see it daily. Look at it every day as part of your daily affirmations.
No matter what happens during the day, a vision board is a constant reminder of where you intend to be. And whenever you’re faced with a difficult decision, look at your vision board. The right choice will be easier to determine when you look at it through the lens of figuring out what will get you closer to you dreams.
What’s on your vision board?
“We have been raised to fear the yes within ourselves, our deepest cravings.”
“When I dare to be powerful, to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid.”
“If I didn’t define myself for myself, I would be crunched into other people’s fantasies for me and eaten alive.”
~Audre Lorde (Caribbean-American poet & author)
Don't let others dictate who you are. You are powerful, you are strong, you are beautiful. You have to declare this within yourself everyday until you begin to believe it! What the world sees in you starts with what you see in yourself!
Remember to Live Your Life on Purpose!
"Never give up on a #dream, just because of the time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway." (Earl Nightingale)
~ In other words... "Never give up on owning your own house, starting your own business, having good credit, taking care of your family, getting a college education, losing weight or anything. These things take time, so, DON'T GIVE UP TOO EARLY. Don't abort your dream, family.
“Your life purpose will continue to evolve for the rest of your life, just as you will personally, spiritually, professionally- in all areas of your life. That’s why its not so important to have a super detailed idea of what your purpose is, but rather to look at the pieces that it comprises of and begin taking action on them.”
~LaLa Middleton, Authentically Living Life on Purpose.
Being a “Conscious Creator” means to just be aware of our thoughts, our words and our actions. Our thoughts create every single thing that happens in our world.
Be aware of what you are thinking. Even if you don’t want something, if you are constantly, “consciously” thinking about it- that’s exactly what you’ll get. So think the positive, motivating thought and provide the action. Our thoughts as well as our words “create”- they actually have power! Our words have vibration. So, from today forward – be aware of the thoughts that you are thinking and the words that you’re a putting in the atmosphere. Therefore, say positive things and think positive things. “Be a Conscious Creator.”
Make it a Purposeful Day! Do every job, thought, and responsibility with intent. Be deliberate about positive actions. Be deliberate about paying bills on time. Be deliberate about your health. Be deliberate about getting a promotion or starting your own business. From the smallest task to the largest task- “BE DELIBERATE.”
We have to make circumstances work in our favor by creating a list of goals for the day. Like: “What do you want to accomplish today? What are your goals for today?” This is so that you are not just existing and simply moving through your day and then not accomplishing what you where meant to do.
Make everyday a day of intention and do every task and duty deliberately! Let today be a day that you are proud of!
Make Today a Purposeful Day
