I am not really one to ascribe to the law of attraction philosophy that is often attached to the creation of vision boards. I do think that making a visual representation of your goals is helpful in realizing them, though.
I created a vision board in 2010 and I shared it here on my blog. Some of the goals were accomplished and others remain in process. There were a couple that I pretty much failed at. Yeah, I am still on the Super Size Me Diet.
This year I am focusing on developing my artwork into a marketable creative product so that I can live comfortably while creatively enhancing the world that I live in. I am now a full time artist, so this is my most important priority.
As I will be turning 50 this year, I am also realizing the need to focus more on the people, creatures and things that I cherish most. Although I tend to be more private about such things, I would be remiss to ignore that here.
So here is my vision board. I hope to check back throughout the year to review and reflect on my progress!
In 2012 My Vision is to:
I hope that you have creative visions for 2012 as well. May you have the most pleasant and inspiring adventures in 2012! Happy New Year!
I meant to publish this on New Year’s Day, but I accidentally hit the publish button and it went on out into the RSS feeds. So I figured I would go ahead and publish it now.
Awhile back I received a Facebook message from a friend suggesting that I create a vision board. The message included a link to my friend’s Facebook photos where she had made an album dedicated to her own vision board.
The message read, “So… the purpose of creating a vision board is to define your outcomes and goals and allow those things to manifest in your life… And… When you share that vision with others the more powerful your intentions become…”
That friend was Amanda Hite, CEO of Talent Revolution. Amanda is a social media rock star and “change agent”, and she apparently is quite famous in the field of talent acquisition/consulting. I feel sorta honored that she even knows my name.
OK, so the message was a group one and not intended solely for me. But social media makes everything more personal, so I took it as an invitation to do something special.
Also, one of my social media strategies is to find people who are using social media effectively and creatively to make a difference in the world, and then try to incorporate some of their strategies into my own repertoire.
I have been thinking about it quite a bit, and I have decided to do my vision board here on my blog for my New Year’s Resolutions. Not that I will complete everything on the vision board in the next year, but I do want to dedicate myself towards making my visions real.
So, without further ado, here is my vision board. These are some of the outcomes and goals that I intend to manifest in my life. Let’s see how powerful my intentions become through the process of sharing them with you.
What is your vision? What are your outcomes and goals that you would like to manifest in your life? Will you share that vision with others to allow your intentions to become more powerful? Please do share!
