Bringing Your Visions to Life

At the beginning of each year there is great deal of excitement around New Year resolutions. We all hear people declaring  “THIS IS MY YEAR!!!”  While it’s a nice, positive way to start the year, by March (even February for some) the excitement/commitment/momentum is completely gone. I’ll be the first to admit that I too have found myself in this situation with some of the resolutions I’ve made in the past. For this very reason, I choose to create vision boards. I’m a visual person so it helps for me to SEE what I want for myself. I need words and photos posted where I can look at them everyday. Some of the things on my board are for the year and others are for what I want to accomplish at some point in my life. So, many of the goals I put on my board this year, will also be on the new board I create next year. But what I’ve found is that I am usually quite pleased at the end of each year because a number of goals on my vision board have been actualized.

For example, after my race today,

I looked at my vision board and smiled because I am keeping my

commitment to run/race. Running is not my first love, but I definitely enjoy it. It’s empowering to work hard/train for an event and finally reach the finish line. I feel like a champion every time I cross the line and bend my head down to

receive my medal. It’s truly exhilarating.

Vision boards work well for me.

If you have never made one, I encourage you to give it a try. Hang it up and see how it can help you stay focused. I’m certainly looking forward to bringing more of those words/photos to life this year. Just checked my passport last week. I have the words “Room With A View” up on my board too….Let’s see what I can do 🙂
