This is not your typical boring new year’s resolution type of post. Or “have you set a goal in mind for 2018” kinda thing.
I’m talking about realistically feeling great and ambitious about ending your 2017 on a high note and keeping your goals and achievement on track for 2018.
Recently, I took part in a 4-Day Vision Board Challenge hosted and organized by a very reputable mentor of mine and speaker here in Singapore, Vicky Vaswani, where a group of 300 plus members from around the world took up on the challenge to create a vision board for 2018.
So what is a Vision Board, Putra?
In simple terms, a vision board is a board for your vision. Yeah I said simple terms, what did you expect? 😜
Fine… A vision board is a tool used to help clarify, concentrate and maintain focus on a specific life goal. Literally, a vision board is any sort of board on which you display images that represent whatever you want to be, do or have in your life.
But what’s different than creating one on your own and being in a group and each individual set a goal to create a vision board…well, what I can say is taking part in this challenge with people from around the world, people from all walks of life, people of different ethnic and age group makes the difference.
Throughout the journey, I’ve learned a lot about other people and also see things from their perspective. Seeing how people get creative on putting their heart out for a vision board is truly a unique experience.
Here’s a screenshot of the comments on the last day of the challenge where all of us had to submit and showcase our vision board…
That is just a glimpse and a handful! Everyone’s vision board is totally unique and very very personal!
I’m guessing you’re a little curious as to how mine turn out to be, right? Here’s mine…
Having it digitally is awesome. You can set it as your phone’s wallpaper and when you turn to your phone, BOOM! Your vision board is there. Works as a reminder and keep it keeps your subconscious mind fresh and always having your vision in it.
But I went a step further and PRINT THIS BEAST!
By having created and printed my digital vision board, I realized one thing. Seeing what your heart’s desires and your dreams in front of you, you will feel that your goals are suddenly attracted to you.
I started feeling and I know what I need to do to achieve my goals.
Create one for yourself and start envisioning your goals. You will realize that your goals are a grasp away, you just need to put in the effort and taking one step at a time…
Definitely hard to come up with content ideas but when you start getting started, you won’t want to stop. I made a deal with the devil…
I’m just kidding!
I want to be a better me – and start doing things right, without doing the right things. You heard me right 😜 So what I did is came up with a plan for every month starting today for the rest of December and the upcoming 2018.
Planned out the things I want to get things up and running but mostly for my health – planning my workout routines when I have an off day from work.
With that in mind, I shot a quick video for you and it’s up on youtube. I might as well just embed it here for ya… Enjoy the video below!
Because this is my 13th post. I have a total of 12 blog post before this and what does this tell?
I AM NOT PUSHING AND MOVING FORWARD ENOUGH.
I am simply not being consistent and do you want to know why?
Because I self doubt myself one too many times and I am sure we can all relate to this, right? We’ve all fallen into this hole that we dug for ourselves.
Sometimes you just don’t feel like what you’re doing is good enough. Nothing can match up to what you expect – so you end up giving most of it up.
And I am exactly where I set myself to be.
But we’re all just being human aren’t we and we all do doubt ourselves at times.
One moment I thought to myself, why don’t I just scribble down ideas of how to make things work – and a second moment later I look back at them and I think to myself, “will this ever work?” “is this gonna work?”
Do you feel the same as I do?
Well thank you, if you can relate to all of this…
Then, the next waking moment again I look back at those ideas and thoughts, I think, “hey that’s actually a pretty good idea.”
That’s because you’ve come out from that reality and you realized that you are indeed good enough to make things work.
Sometimes you just need a little bump of motivation to keep things burning. So my say here is this; if you’re going to put things to work and make ends meet. Then you’re gonna have to fail.
Because failure is just a sign that you’re nearing success. Failure is just a condition we set our mind to think that it’s a dead end when in reality, it isn’t.
