Manifest your goals!
We all love to set resolutions at the beginning of a new year, but the sad reality is that most people will fail to achieve them. Why? Simply because they lose sight of their goals or vision. That is however, unless you spend some time really focusing on what your goals are and attach feelings to those goals as if you've already achieved them. Some people may doubt the power of the vision board, but the fact is wherever you place your attention is where you’ll start to see what you'll create in your life. This is call the power of attraction or manifestation. Did you ever think of buying a certain car and all of a sudden you start to see that same car EVERYWHERE? It's that same principle. Easy concept right?
I prefer the term vision board as opposed dream board. A vision for me is a collection of images that represents what I want to achieve or attract into my life. If I can see myself achieving a goal, that creates an positive emotion. It's that emotion that will drive us to take the appropriate steps and stay on course to attaining our vision. A dream to me seems a little more fantasy and wishful vs action oriented. Same with goals vs resolutions. Resolutions seem to be a decision that if is made in hopes to achieve it. Goals are more action oriented. Enough talking, let's get manifesting! That's the fun part.

Here are my 8 simple steps to follow when designing a vision board.
- Sit with your thoughts and identify what it is you want to attract into your life. What goals do you want to achieve? Think about the emotion that you feel when you just think about already having achieved that goal.
- Once you have your goals identified, start to collect images that best represent those goals. Again, chose images that resonate with you and start to create a positive feeling as if you've already accomplished your goal. Example: If you want to buy a new car, go to the dealership, sit in the car of your dreams and take a selfie. Use that selfie on your board.
- Once you have all your images you are ready to design. Open up a free account on canva.com. Be sure to access the instructional video from above to learn how to use Canva to design your vision board.
- Start to lay out your images onto your blank canvas/board. I like to break my board into 1/4th quadrants and reserve those areas for personal goals, family goals, health and fitness coaching goals and my my web design and marketing business goals.
- There are no mistakes so don't hesitate just get creative!
- Sit with your design for a few days, revisit it every so often to make tweaks and changes until you feel it's a complete representation of your vision.
- Save your creation for print and digital use. I offer some suggested ways to use your vision board in my video above.
- Look at your board often to remind yourself of your goals and desires. Keep in mind you still need set actionable items to achieve your goals, just because the look pretty on a board doesn't mean you are going to achieve them. So....get busy!
