Welcome to Motivational Monday! A safe space to lay it all out on the table- no one is perfect, and every one needs a boost now and again. What time is better than on Monday, that sunny little bright spot of the week? Pull up a chair, keep an open mind, and let’s start this week right!
Sometimes we can get so caught up in the day to day that we forget to focus on our future. By creating a personalized vision board we can focus on our long term goals- the purpose, to depict (and lead us to) our desired future. It is a tool that serves as your image of what you want- a tangible representation of your dreams, goals and ideal life. A vision board, as dumb as it may sound, is one of the most powerful visualization tools available to us.
The brain responds strongly to visual stimulation, so find pictures that represent or symbolize the experiences, feelings, and possessions you want to attract into your life, and arrange them in your board. Your board can be any size you want, whether it’s a large board you can hang on a wall, or a small card on your bathroom mirror, have fun with the process! Use photographs, magazine cutouts, pictures from the Internet–whatever inspires you. Then make sure you begin each day studying it- visualizing, affirming, believing and internalizing your goals. Make sure you write the date you make your board on the back, because I’ll bet you’ll be amazed at how fast you reach those goals when they become such an part of you.
So what can we focus on this week? Make that vision board, and post it up where you can see it every morning! As an example to help you get started or inspired, the picture above is my vision board.
