Vision Board for the win!
I just gasped so hard that I choked.
Have you ever done that?
I think it’s partially because I have this horrible cold that Rohan gave me.
I’ll blame the cold… lol, restricted airways and all that…. *look*
I was going through papers tossing stuff, filing stuff and trying to organize when I found this pic:
This is the house I had on my vision board all of 2013 (when I thought I’d be moving to FL for 2014 before John’s accident, and my scary pregnancy with Kaya)
For whatever reason, I put the photo away, and didn’t have it displayed for 2014.
I totally forgot about that photo, I didn’t realize I kept a printout of this vision board….
This is the house I’m buying:
Now, I know it’s not the same house, but they’re so similar to me it’s definitely gasp-worthy. And once I landscape and fix up our janky yard our lil yellow house will look even more like the yellow house that was on my vision board!
I was reminded of John Assaraf’s story from The Secret of his son pulling out his old vision board and noticing that everything on it had come to fruition.
So needless to say, I’m working on a new vision board. This weekend I’m going to get my aunt’s huge stack of magazines, and create my beautiful vision for 2015.
On my computer my current background is a list of my 2015 goals but I’m going to update to have the list smaller, and my vision board next to it. I’m pretty visual so I like seeing the photos everywhere.
I always urge my clients to look at the vision board at least once a day, and to not just look at the pretty pictures thinking “oh wouldn’t that be nice” (but that is honestly a great place to start).
My suggestion is to have even a little 5 minute visualization session where you look at the photos, and think about and feel what they represent in first person. So you really feel yourself driving that fancy new car, or what have you.
It would be great to do this twice a day, hell, even once a day. But it’s not always the reality. Everyone’s busy, and things like this tend to get pushed aside for whatever the current “fire” is. So I suggest at minimum to look at the board once a day. Just to keep those desires and goals simmering in your subconscious and conscious.
My board is going to have images representing a thriving business, being at home with my children, having a fit body, a loving connected marriage, and a happy home…
