For 2018, I will start to dream again.
It has been a rough ride for the past years.
The challenges made me a stronger person and it will never stop me to face life with more optimism.
I will be making my dream or vision board soon.
Dream (or vision) board is more powerful than you think because it actually works!
Most successful people have one; Bo Sanchez, Sha Nacino, and Jack Canfield to name a few.
A Dream Board is something that will help you focus on your goal to make your mind focus on achieving it, it is a mind exercise that’s easy to do and so achievable. But what do you really need to put on your Dream Board? Simple. The things you want to feel. Well, it’s okay to put the things that you want, material things will inevitably always be there. Feelings on the other hand needs a lot of effort to get. You can’t really buy happiness, so the more your board focuses on how you want to feel like being inspired or confident, the more it will come into reality.
1. Daydream the things you’d like to achieve this year (or next year)
You have to first visualize what you really want in life, your goals and aspirations; the things that will truly make you happy. Imagine yourself living your life with the things you want this year; the more you want it, the more you’ll be motivated to do it.
2. Collect any form of motivational pictures and words
From old magazines, or anywhere you can find motivation. Sort those out first, before you put it all together.
3. Arrange them on whatever suits you
This is where you can start making your dream board! Make a collage out of it, make it visually appealing. Just put the things that are really important to you, it’s okay to get rid some of the things you’ve cut.
4. Paste them down
Glue, tape, or anything; you have to commit with your arrangement. And also, with the things you’ve put; if you’ve included that you’ll study hard to be a Dean’s Lister, then you have to really work hard to achieve it.
5. Make it more appealing
By writing words with your own penmanship, or pictures of people that inspire you like your family and friends. Also put some crafty stuff that will make it attractive yet inspiring, so you’ll be more motivated to look at it.
6. Take time to look at it everyday
To make it easier, put it exactly where you’ll see it everyday; even if you don’t look for it. If possible, review it before you leave the house or go to sleep. If you see it, you believe it, then you achieve it. Make a stand that everything that is written on your dream board will be a reality. You don’t have to do it all at once, take things slowly. One step at a time.
Always remember, the power is not in the dream or vision board but in what we do to make our vision a reality.
Because here is the Truth:
“Vision is merely a dream without action.” ~ Joel Barker
