Although unrealistic for some (I’m supposed to glue pictures on a foam board and wait for them to come true?), vision boards (and word walls) have a great impact. Once you allow yourself to dream big and match those dreams with images and positive emotions, well, the sky is the limit. So, I decided to create a brand new vision board for the 34 at 34 Challenge.
This time I did things a little differently. Instead of using foam board and tacking it up on my wall, I used the O Dream Board. This way my vision board could be just for me, which is sometimes necessary to heed off negative juju and energy. I don’t want anyone looking at my board and thinking I’m nuts or unrealistic. I don’t want anyone to question my goals and my desires, even if they may seem far fetched to others. So, I keep it to myself. I used the O Dream Board application, found images online and tacked them on. Once finished, I saved the board as a screensaver. And whala, I have my own personal vision board on my computer and my cell phone.
What did I place on my vision board this time? Clear goals. I knew I wanted to write for GalTime, so I found their logo online and added it to the board. And guess what I am doing now? Writing as a regular contributor for GalTime. You can find my first post here. I also had the Latina Smart logo up. Just today I began my role as a Latina Smart blogger. That post is here.
Whoever says vision boards don’t work either hasn’t tried them or indicated clear goals. Some people just don’t know what they want, or if they do they are too afraid to acknowlegde their dreams. Some people don’t believe because they are not ready to. They may be in a funk or too negative to imagine that words and images can change their life.
What are you waiting for? Start dreaming and believing! In no time, you’ll have taken down photos because you accomplished your dreams.
Share with me. Have you had a vision board and have the goals on your vision board come true?
