Life can only be understood backwards, but it must be lived forwards. --Søren Kierkegaard
Lately I have been on a kick of convincing you to find yourself and being who you are, be it if you are single, married, partnered, in an LTR, 3some, or you name it. If you want to lose weight, do it. If you want to overcome fears, tackle it. If you want to build the next Donald Trump empire, work it. We come to a point where we learn from our past and shed the proverbial former us. Remember what I said, stop living in the shadows of who you were! With that said, I have some homework I want all of YOU to do. Don't worry there will be no pop quiz at the end, no need to work for that "A," and nothing to really hand in.
I want you to make a wish board. Or better yet a SUCCESS board. Wishing entails that it might never come true, we want to visualize it WILL come true. Now there are two ways one can go about this. Let's start the old-fashioned way.
Items you will need:
-poster board (small, medium, large...you decide)
Start out by skimming magazines, old newspapers, anything and everything. Look for pictures, words, sayings, signs, anything you want to bring into your life and future. It can be money, success, love, relationships, boyfriend, friends, etc. Don't think of the things you don't want or like, see the things you do want and like. You can fashion words using different letters á la creepy stalker from The Bodyguard. Remember think positive, don't use words that negate, it will do nothing for you.
When you feel that you have added everything you wanted and see yourself attaining, place the board in a place you will always see it. The best place is right by the front door. That way you are reminded of it every time you walk by the poster. You see it, you say it, you do it! Feel free to add more items as you go throughout the weeks, days, and hours. There is no stopping you.
So that is the old-fashioned way of doing it...I know what you are thinking. What's the new way? Duh, cut and paste on a computer. Today with technology readily available to all of us, after all you are reading my blog on a computer, you can add pictures simply by copying/pasting and cropping. You can use Word or if you have them, Photoshop and Illustrator. The fun part is you can create your images yourself and still visualize the same process.
What's even better about doing it on your computer is that you can save the image as your desktop wallpaper! We are constantly logged on to our computers, phones, and tablets. So why not take advantage of it!
Now you see, it wasn't too hard. It's an easy project that enables you to find YOU and to help in your success. After all true happiness begins with us, or I should say YOU. So take some time, put on your feel good music, and have fun!
**please note that the Vision Board is an old idea made popular by The Secret. The idea comes from old teachings from ancient civilizations who use to act out and paint their hunts, wars, etc and see themselves winning their fights or events. They acted out their desired results for success.
