The best way to turn your goals into images is by asking yourself some important questions, and then finding the pictures that represent those things. Looking at those images everyday keeps you focused on what you want. The easiest and most fun way I have found is by creating a vision board. A vision board is simply a visual representation of your goals, pictures you put on a board or in a picture frame, that you can look at every day. It actually gives your goals life. It can be pictures of where you want to go, things that you want to have and how you want your life to look. Essentially, the goal of creating your personalized roadmap of what you want your life to be, is to pay attention to the things that motivate you to hit your goals to help you to get there.
You can also use powerful words and numbers that mean something to you and align with your goals. For example, my business partner and I created The ETTWomen Foundation to assist women in crisis and open an entrepreneurial school for girls in the Dominican Republic. So I have the beach, and a picture of a school in the DR. We also want the ETTWomen’s group to expand and open chapters in 2 more states this year and also increase virtual membership. I have the word expansion 2017 and also a picture next to it of a group of women. I also found a picture of where I want to go on vacation this year. It can be created to design the life you want.
Here are 10 important questions to ask yourself when you are ready to start your vision board:
- What do you want your year to look like?
- If money were no object, where do you want to travel to?
- What do you want more of in your life? Money, time, love?
- What gets you fired up to get out of bed every morning?
- Who do you want to be included in your vision?
- How will it feel to have these things in your life?
- What are you passionate about?
- How do you want to look and feel?
- What makes you happy?
- How will you make your mark? What will you do? Inspire?
Have fun looking for the pictures, words, and/or numbers that represent your vision. Stay true to your intentions and your values and be authentic. As you start to look at your vision board daily, you will start to see the principles manifest in your actions, and the results that will happen because of your actions will start to happen rapidly. I really hope that your completed roadmap of your life is a true representation of what you want and it represents your goals, dreams, and passions. Make sure you have fun putting it together. Life is a marathon, not a sprint!
