Happy New Year! As we begin this new year, I encourage you to take some time and create goals for yourself. I am sure you have created some new years resolutions before. Often times, resolutions are unsuccessful as we keep them to ourselves. Sometimes we may be embarrassed by sharing our goal or fear that we may fail so chose not to share our resolutions. I encourage you to be transparent about your goals. Write them down, tell someone about it or create a dream board. Sharing your goals and aspirations helps you keep accountable and increases your success rate.
What is a dream board? A dream board is a visual creation of one's goals and aspirations. Dream boards have been known to help manifest goals. By creating a dream board you are putting your intentions out in the world. The act of creating a dream board helps us identify goals we would like to achieve. Not only do we identify goals, but creating a board allows us to visualize our goals. It can be done in many different ways, there is no right or wrong way to do it. You can create a collage, use drawings, paste photographs and use inspirational words and quotes. The most important thing is place it in a area that you will see it daily. Let it be a daily reminder for you to work towards your hopes and dreams.
This weekend a few of my friends got together to start the year off with creating goals and intentions. We started by sharing the lessons we learned in 2017 and identifying aspirations for 2018. By sharing our aspirations with each other, we are become each other's accountability partners and can help and support each other in achieving our individual goals. My friends have made this an annual event and this was actually my first time creating a dream board. As we perused the same magazines, it amazed me that different images, words and quotes stuck out to each of us. Each of our boards were different and uniquely a direct reflection of ourselves and our aspirations. One of the most special parts of our event was sharing our current fears and insecurities and dreams and aspirations with each other. Collaboratively, we cheered each other one, gave each other insight and ideas and offered encouragement and reassurance that our goals will be achieved.
I encourage you to take some time this month and create a dream board of your own.
