A vision for 2019: Do Vision Boards really work?


It’s the first of the year and many people are thinking of goals they have for 2019. 

I start the year off with a vision board: A vision board is simply a poster or collage with pictures and images of your dreams. 

Vision BoardsYou may ask yourself where do I start? 

I believe the first key is to allow yourself the ability to dream.  And no dream is too small or even too big.  In fact, if your dream scares you – it’s a good thing!  And no dream is right or wrong — it is all about what you personally want to accomplish in your life. 

It can include goals and dreams you have personally, within your business or even for your family.  I personally have a goal to take my daughter and granddaughter to Disney World this year.  I also have a goal of buying a new stainless steel stove. 

I encourage you to put your vision board in a place where you see it daily.  I am a firm believer in what you think about you bring about.  It is a daily reminder of what you are working towards. 

A vision board can be a family project and a time to get your spouse and your kids on the same page.  As a family you can work on your dreams for your family.  It’s a time to listen one another and work on goals together. 

A great technique is using the word S.M.A.R.T. ::

The letter S stands for setting a SPECIFIC goal.  Write specifically what you want to do or accomplish. This is very important.  It is a roadmap to where you want to end up. 

The letter M stands for MEASURABLE.  Determine if your goal can be accomplished by the deadline.  Is your goal date realistic? 

The letter A stands for ACTION ORIENTED.  Determine the action steps that will lead to you accomplishing your goals. 

The letter R stands for REALISTIC.  You need to determine if your goals can be reached and if they are attainable.  

The letter T stands for TIMELINE.  Set a deadline for when you want to accomplish that particular goal. 

When the vision is clear the results will appear!

Go after what you want in 2019 and know you can accomplish ANYTHING you put your mind and heart into!
