Vision Boards~ 5 keys to tranforming your life

14 Apr

I am sure you have heard of Vision Boards by now. And if you have not here is a quick review.Vision boards are designed by you. As the designer you become creative as you cut-out pictures of what you want to see in your life and add them to a poster board or frame.

The concept is that your mind will direct the things that you placed on your board to come your way. Many people first heard of vision boards when the book the secret came out years ago.

I have been using some form of Vision boards since 2001. They really are fantastic when used correctly in helping you expand your vision and open up the possibilities that life has to offer. Over the years I have also heard people complain that they have never received what they hoped for. I am going to help you resolve that issue right now.

Here are 5 keys to receive what you desire using your vision board.

Key #1: When creating your board allow yourself plenty of time and space to focus on your dreams and goals. Really think about what you want to see in your life. Ask yourself questions such as: How will accomplishing this change my life? Who’s life will I impact by accomplishing this goal? What is the purpose that God has for me?

Key #2: Become clear about who you are and what you want. Be authentic in what you want to see happen. Choose pictures that reflect your true self. If you choose cars and homes which you really do not desire then you will not manifest it. This is a common mistake that many people make when creating a vision board. They choose pictures that are not in align with their spirit. Choose pictures that you are drawn too. They be abstract, colors or symbols.  Ask yourself: What do I really want? Free yourself up to fantasize about living a no limit life.  What is calling me? Often times, our spirit will direct us to something we would not have choosen ourselves but we know deep down it has significance.

Key #3: Create your board based on your values in every area of your life. Think about your health, spirit,  family, business, career, recreation and your finances. There are many types of boards such as Financial boards, Business boards and all-in-one boards. No matter which board you choose always remember to use your values as starting point in the creation process. What would success look like to you? Would it include time for your family and friends? What are my values? How will I reflect that in my future?

Key #4: Use Meditation, Prayer and Affirmations to move your spirit in direct alignment in what you want to produce. Are you ready to receive all that you asked for? Would you believe it if it happened? Take time to prepare for the manifestation and truth will be revealed to you at an accelerated pace.

Key #5: Lastly and probably most importantly- Take Action. When opportunities in the form of people or situations come your way go for it. You can only achieve your goals and dreams if you put in the time and work. Your spiritual self wants to move and is aching for something to achieve. You have to be the catalyst to get the ball in action. Every time you reach higher God will expand that reach. Make this the year that you give him something to work with!

5 Ways to Increase Motivation

18 Dec


Motivation and drive propel us forward toward the realization of our goals, but some of us seem to have more of this driving force than others. If you feel like you have less of these traits than you would like, the good news is there are ways to increase your motivation and happily start trekking down the path of achievement.

1. Here are five sure fire suggestions to get you going: Burn your other options. Working like you have no other options will propel you into taking action.  For example if you want to find another job or start your own business.  Write a letter of resignation, postdate it a month, address it and give it to a friend. Require that your friend present you with the letter at the designated time. Now begin working on your business or job search as if that date is real. You will notice that you become urgent about how you manage your time and finances.

2. Focus on the positive people in your life. If you don’t feel like you have enough, find some new ones. Only share your goals with those that are most supportive of you. For example, if you want to lose weight, join a gym and hang out with the healthy people. They’re positive and supportive.Likely, there’s someone at the gym who has lost 100 lbs. That’s the person you want to associate with! This idea also means getting negativity out of your life. If your friends don’t support you, why are they there? Take an inventory of the people in your life. Add some who have what you want, and move on from the ones who aren’t supportive.

3. Feed your brain with positive information daily. Inspirational books and audio’s are wonderful tools for accelerating your growth and knowledge. The key is to use them on a daily basis. They’re like exercise for your motivation and drive. You can’t just work out just one time and expect to see significant results.Set a schedule and stick to it. Even if you just do 15 minutes a day, the payoff will be huge.

4. Act immediately. Once you’ve set a new goal, do something! Your first task can be as simple as making a phone call or laying out a plan. If you don’t take immediate action, you risk falling permanently into analysis mode where there’s a lot of thinking going on, but nothing is actually happening.Motivation often comes after action. Making a little bit of progress can be the inspiration behind additional progress. So do something as soon as you’ve decided what you want to accomplish.

5. Look the part. Take a look at yourself in the mirror. Do you look like the kind of person that would accomplish your goal on a regular basis? If your goal is to make $200,000 a year as a real estate investor, dress the part. Your identity should fit your goal. This may seem like a trivial matter, but it can make a huge difference.

Once you truly commit to your goal, your drive and motivation will see you to success. Take some action daily and remove your conscious safety nets that allow you to fail too easily; you’ll be amazed at the results.

As always, I wish you peace and joy on your wellness journey,
