Today we’re going to be talking about the six reasons why you need to carry a vision board of your goals with you.
What is a vision board? Well, we’re going to cover that too.
I’m a collector of all the things
I make lots of plans.
Plan, plan, plan
I’m always planning all the things that I want to do!
Not so much when it comes to the doing part.
Here’s an example.
Home improvement projects.
It’s one of the biggest planning things that I do.
I have all the magazine cutouts
I have Pinterest boards
I have a whole travelers notebook that is dedicated to my plans for my home improvement projects.
You don’t even want to know what’s going on in my brain with all the thinking about the plans that I’m making!
Sheesh! That would wear you out right!
Today, I’m going to talk to you about what I’m learning to do to overcome this planning and thinking.
In this week’s episode, you’re going to learn the top six reasons why you need to carry a
vision board with you, not just making a poster or a Pinterest board and forgetting about it!
All right so let’s get into those six reasons why you need to carry a vision board of your goals with you.
It makes it 42 percent more likely that you’ll achieve them
It forces you to be more specific in what you want.
It helps you to overcome the resistance that comes with any goal you set.
It keeps you motivated to do something.
It helps you to weed out opportunities that don’t help you reach your goal.
It gives you the opportunity to see and celebrate any progress.
Let’s be honest, it’s that time of year when we’ve lost steam on those goals that we were ambitious about at the beginning of the year.
It’s such a problem for most of us to keep that momentum going!
Me, not excluded!
Why am I bringing this up in a community where a lot of us are already planners and journalers and goal setters and all those kinds of things?
We absolutely are all those things, but I recently asked a different question about why we do them.
Why do we plan?
Why do we journal?
Why do we set priorities?
Why do we even care what our priorities are?
Here’s what I think.
We’re goal driven we want to improve on what we already have.
We want to know where we’re headed.
THAT’s why we plan, journal, and set our priorities.
We have a vision so why not incorporate all those things into what we carry with us all the time in our travelers’ notebooks?
Our vision board doesn’t have to hang on a wall!
I know it’s called a vision BOARD but it’s the purpose behind the vision board that I think is more important to focus on.
When we have our plans in our travel travelers notebook and we’re looking through it constantly, why not have the goals were working on in our traveler’s notebook too!
The motto for Hunkeedori is to keep it all together, right?!
Ok, we didn’t go over what a vision board is yet.
A vision board is generally a bunch of pictures that you’ve gathered that represent your goals to remind you of what your goals are.
One way you can incorporate this into your traveler’s notebook is to use a dashboard to hold your vision board.
What’s a dashboard?
A dashboard is generally a piece of plastic with pockets in it, like a photo sleeve.
You use them in a Travelers Notebook to hold decorative elements mostly.
If you have more questions about this, I have an entire workshop called TN1010 that can teach you about all the cool things that make up Travelers Notebooks. If you’re interested in that, I’ll leave you a link in the show notes.
You can use your dashboard as your vision board. It’s the perfect place to slide a picture that will remind you of a goal you’re working on.
One of my goals for this year is to plant a cut flower garden. So I’ve put a picture of that in one of the pockets of my dashboard.
The second idea I have for you today for creating a vision board to carry with you is if you use a pre-made planner that you slide into your traveler’s notebook.
At the beginning of almost every pre-made planner are a bunch of either blank pages or pages you don’t know what to do with. You’ll probably find a bunch of pages in the back that you don’t plan on using so you can cover any of those pages up with your vision board pictures too.
You can add written notes about the steps you’re going to take to reach those goals and the date that you plan on achieving it too.
My third idea is if you keep a notebook in your traveler’s notebook like I do.
I keep a notebook that I can write in wherever I am. Who doesn’t need an extra place to write?
Why not create a vision board in that notebook?
I actually also have a smaller journal that i keep in my traveler’s notebook that I’ve put my
vision board in. I love that it’s not the same size as the rest of the inserts in my TN. I put pictures and write the goals that I’ve set and the progress I’m making on my goals. It’s a great place to keep up with any changes too. Sometimes goals evolve, so I write it down where I don’t forget!
I have another question for you… what are some things that can get in our way of meeting the goals that we set for ourselves and the vision that we have for our future selves?
Sometimes the biggest obstacle that gets in the way of us meeting our goals is, honestly, ourselves.
Sometimes you’re the one that puts that obstacle there because you haven’t outlined what your dreams are.
You haven’t decided what your priorities are.
Isn’t it about time you’ve decided that?
The Uniquee Connection Method can help you do that.
Join me in the next session of the program!! I talk more about what the Uniquee Connection program is in Episode 24. I hope you can join me in the next session.
You get to choose how you spend your life.
Other people are there along the way and they do influence how you choose to spend your time but you’re the one holding the steering wheel.
You get to be the one to make those decisions.
Dream about where you want to be in three years from now.
Feel how you want to feel in three years and then do those things that help you
to feel like that right now whether you’ve reached your goals or not.
So, there you have what I think are the top six reasons that you should carry a vision board with you and I also shared with you how a Travelers Notebook can hold that for you.
I hope that you will give this a try.
I’ve created a really pretty bunch of graphics with these 6 reasons for you.
You can find the links for those in the show notes below this episode.
I hope you will let me know how it goes
I hope you will email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me if you’ve tried it.
I want you to know I’m here rooting for you!
I’m here to support you and help you.
I’m here to make a travelers notebooks to hold all of your most important things so you can keep it all together so your life feels more put together
Until next week, have a great day and I’m sending you lots of love through the mic.
