Ringing in the new year is when most of us hit the re-set button and start thinking about how the upcoming year will be the best year yet! Thoughts of washboard abs, traveling the world, getting a new promotion, or taking other significant steps in our lives swirl around our brains. But often times these thoughts never have any strategy put behind them and just remain... thoughts... with no action.
If you're looking for a new way to attack your goals this year and make your thoughts a reality I suggest putting together a vision board. Check out my 2021 vision board above.
There are several ways you go about it so make it your own. I used Word to create mine. I've done this exercise with some of my employees over the years and I've seen all kind of creative ways to put these together: Power Point presentation, clip art from magazines, etc.
Whatever way you plan your goals it's important to understand the why behind having a vision. It is scientifically proven that if you acknowledge what you want in your life, write it down, and share it with the world you’re 42% more likely to achieve those goals. By taking the thoughts in your mind and putting them to paper you connect the left and right side of your brain, the logical and the creative parts of your noggin. That powerful connection creates action.
Be bold in 2021 and don't let the the past hold you back. Share what it is that you want in life and let your vision turn into reality.
