Monday's are tough! We're still in weekend mode but our list is long with things to do. Let's help each other make the transition a little bit easier. Every Monday, I will share a tip or trick I use to help me ease into the week. Hope it inspires you to take action and jumpstart into your day.
Let's talk VISION BOARDS! Have you ever made one? Do you know what one is?
A vision board is a collection of images and pictures representing your hopes, dreams and aspirations. I see the process of designing a vision board as a both a creative exercise and personal development. We are all striving to be a bigger and better version of ourselves. Through the act of clipping photos and words out of magazines, we are designing the life we hope to lead. We are gaining clarity and focus on the big goal.
I encourage you to try this! Take some time and sit by yourself or with friends. Grab a stack of mags, scissors, poster board and paste. Tear sheet images, words, colors that resonate with you. Don't think too much! Just let yourself have fun and go with the flow. Then get into the design part and start pasting. Don't worry what your neighbor is doing. Just follow what feels right for YOU. There is no right or wrong way to this.
Then voila! You have created a beautiful vision board. Almost like a treasure map for your hopes and dreams. Keep it in a place where you can see it often and it can inspire you. But the most important step is to map out some action steps to get you to this dream. Don't forget that part. Write out a list of things you can do NOW that will get the ball rolling. And better yet, find a partner who will hold you accountable and help you get there.
I am hosting a Dream Bigger Workshop in NJ on January 27th. I will guide you with questions on how to dream big and then help you design a vision board that captures that big goal. Then I have a powerful exercise that will act as a catalyst to catapult you to taking action. But more to come on this special workshop in an upcoming blog post.
