Vision Without Action is Day Dream.

This weekend a girlfriend of mine and I took a little time to make a vision board. I used the magazines that just collect and put them to use. A vision board is a simple yet powerful visualization tool that activates the universal law of attraction to begin manifesting your dreams into reality. How many times do you think of something, forget, and then months down the road wished you would have wrote it down/completed something you dreamt about. This board can contain ideas from goals that you have set, or see in the future with the intention that these ideas are put to work.

My board included the following:

1. The year of the DO.

2. My passion is to spread why being healthy is important across America.

3. I want to love everyone in my life amazingly.

4. Trust my gut.

5. Get better on track w/ finance and saving.

6. Possibly move to NY.

7. Creating a perfect balance between work, relationship, school, working out etc.

8. Continue to workout and test my body in ways I never knew possible.

9. Not gossip about others (We are all guilty.) What is the point?

10. Have fun and be myself + Not worry about what others think.

I could have probably done 10 more boards.  You don’t realize how much your information your head can hold until you try to express it and the space just isn’t big enough. I encourage you to make a vision board. Mabe it’s not about health and working out, but it could involve being a better brother, sister, coworker, parent, friend or just a better you. Vision without action is day dream. It’s a new week- and almost a new year. Let’s try to be better in every aspect of our life. This doesn’t happen over night but rather day by day or pound by pound. While putting my vision to work- you all inspire me to be better every day.  Have a great Monday everyone.

A New Month to THINK BIG!

{Highly recommend this book for goal setting}

Where will you be 5 years from today? The best day of your life is the day on which you decide life is your own. No one to lean on, rely on or blame. The gift of life is yours, it is an amazing journey, and you alone are responsible for the quality of it. Life is about the choices you make- choose wisely.

Start by choose the two most important “guiding stars”- your VALUES and your MISSION.

Your Values are personal choices you make about what’s important to you. This brings immense satisfaction and meaning to life. (Family, Friendship, Health, Wealth, Learning, Career, Community, Faith, Integrity, Adventure, Love etc.)

Your Mission is when you “dedicate your life to a cause greater than yourself, and your life will become glorious romance and adventure.” – Mark Douglas

Write your personal Mission Statement: There is no specific format, but keep it clear, brief and exciting. Ask yourself, “What is my calling, my life’s aim? What inspires me the most? What activity or service is my core values urging me to pursue?

A GOAL IS A DREAM SET TO PAPER, DON’T JUST THINK IT- INK IT!

Some people spend all their lives on a boring little island called the “Someday Isle.” Someday, I’ll hike in Nepal. Someday I’ll have a great adventure.” Life is not a dress rehearsal. Life is HERE and it is NOW! Reach out and seize it, you deserve it!

Assignment:

List five things you’ve been procrastinating about and plan to take at least of bit of action on all 5 this week! Ready, Set, GO!

You will NEVER have more time than you do right now.
