Every January my timeline is flooded with resolutions my peers are aspiring to. For instance, to lose weight, fix their credit, and attempting to find the one yet again. One thing I do not see often enough is a vision board. Ironically, a vision board might be just the right thing to get the ball rolling. It is a creative way to put your goals directly in front of you & not just on paper.
“I dream it, I work hard, I grind till I own it” -Beyoncé
Images visually remind you of the goals you want to achieve. Annually you resolve to accomplish your goals & move forward. The new year comes around and you vow that things will be different this time around.
In order to make your dreams a reality, you must seize the opportunity. However, in order to claim that victory, you have to be ready. What better way to make it happen, than with a vision board.
I was introduced to this idea about 2 years ago. Feeling stuck & unmotivated I was filled with disappointment & despair. I was recently turned down for a promotion with an increased salary. Crushed, I didn’t know what my next move should be. From time to time, when I am in a conundrum I seek counsel from my mentor. However, this instance I knew what she would say. Something cliche like move on, stop feeling sorry for yourself & apply for a new job.
The standard response when disappointment discourages you from getting stuck.
In hindsight, that’s a typical suggestion to bounce back. On the contrary, a quick fix is not what I was seeking. I wanted to have a clear vision for my life. I just was not sure how to press on & take the first step. So I decided to make a vision board. Nothing compares to getting those creative juices flowing. Over time, I was able to lose those last 15 pounds and finally start writing again. In addition, I was given more responsibility at work.
Personally, resolutions are not effective to me. So, if you’re ready to grow and change for the better. Why not go ahead try something new & make a vision board.
Having a guest post is something new for the HRJazzy Blog, but when Fallon reached out to me with her post, I felt like she had a great follow up with a great message. For my first 2018 post I wrote about my vision board and Fallon is here to share information on what began her journey.
