So, you’re either feeling super fired up about getting shit done and launching some new projects in 2017 – or – you’re walking into the New Year, not even knowing where to begin or what day it is….
Regardless where you stand, the reason why you’re here to begin with is that you have a burning desire to make this year BETTER than the last.
With all the buzz about new year’s resolutions or big plans people have for the new year, you may have overheard friends or colleagues of yours talk about vision boards. If you’ve never made one before, you probably don’t know too much about them or what they can do for you.
When I started out as a sub-contractor for a marketing firm, right out of highschool, I was paid solely on commission (which means if I didn’t make any sales that day, I didn’t get paid). It was at this time that I was introduced to vision boards and the power it could have on my performance and success with the company.
Within 4 short years, I was able to buy my first car at 17, gifted my parents a house when I turned 19, opened up my own business and moved across Canada at 20, and purchased a condo downtown, Vancouver at age 21.
Do I think vision boards had an influence on my success? HELL YEAH.
TO HELP YOU IN MAKING 2017 YOUR BEST YEAR, I HAVE OUTLINED THE TOP 3 REASONS WHY YOU NEED A VISION BOARD, ASAP.
But wait, before we begin, I need to make sure you downloaded the *free* 17-page goal setting workbook that I created just for you. If not, the 2017 Thrive & Conquer Kit is here for you for a limited time!
(1) THE ACT OF CUTTING AND PASTING WILL BRING YOU BACK TO YOUR CHILDHOOD.
Remember growing up as a child and your imagination would run wild? We didn’t question too many things and we were likely to get into a lot of trouble or hurt ourselves because we weren’t thinking about the outcome or consequences.
What was important to us as a child at the time was not to be reasonable or realistic, but to experience joy and excitement. As a child, we lived for the thrill. We were fearless.
When you start perusing magazines, your inner childhood will come to the surface and you’ll start turning the pages, imagining what life would be like if anything was possible.
Whether it’s a fashion magazine, travel magazine, a magazine all about cars or your favourite interior design magazine… you start to feel drawn to the collection of images and before you know it, you are lost in the anticipation of living a better life and what it would be like to have “this”, “go there,” or “experience that.”
You start to cut and paste the images that stand out to you, with very little hesitation, reservation or skepticism.
You are childlike when visionboard’ing because you start to swim in a pool of possibilities. CLICK TO TWEETBefore you know it, you will have a beautiful collage of all the things that make you feel OH-SO-GOOD.
(2) YOU WILL MAINTAIN BETTER FOCUS AND EXCITEMENT THROUGHOUT YOUR QUEST TO SUCCESS.
Have you ever wondered how some people stay motivated and continue to attract amazing things in their life? You know, the people who “have what you want” – who manage to land the clients, close the deals, are offered amazing opportunities, and happen to meet some amazing people along the way.
I have no doubt that the majority of these people have at some point or another, created a vision board for themselves.
Vision boards have a way of keeping us focused and excited, especially on days when things may not be going our way. Why? Because pictures and affirmations have the potential to spark a feeling inside us, that we cannot resist.
Vision boards have a way of keeping us focused and excited, especially on days when things may… CLICK TO TWEETOur vision boards are a constant reminder of what we want to achieve and the rewards that come with being persistent, persevering in the face of failure and getting back up when we would otherwise surrender to defeat.
Images are powerful, just like words, and the more we see the things we want to be, to have and to experience, the more it starts to feel real.
3) THE LAW OF ATTRACTION WORKS.
The Law of Attraction states that we manifest our experiences by our thoughts – what we focus on we attract into our lives. Our beliefs shape our experiences.
If this theory has been tried, tested and true – and you are open to it having some sort of weight in your own life – then, you will agree with me that having a clear vision of what we want, where we are going and what we can have when we get there, is incredibly powerful.
If we don’t spend time thinking, dreaming or imagining the life of our wildest dreams, we are likely to stay in the same spot many years from now. While there’s nothing wrong with being happy about where we are in our lives today or what we have right now, you can’t deny that there is always room for improvement and that you deserve to have everything you want.
We only have one life to live... wouldn’t you want it to be AMAZING, without any regrets?
When we make the decision to take control of what we experience, we can start to think about all the ways we can live happier, more meaningful and fulfilling lives.
You will always get what you’ve always got, if you do what you have always done. CLICK TO TWEETI encourage you to try something different this time around and take the time to design a vision board for 2017. Grab some girlfriends, create a cheese platter, and heck, bring out a bottle of vino… and get to MANIFESTING your wildest dreams!!
