What you focus on expands: picture, plan and achieve this year!
In these early days of a new year, you’re full of good intentions and still optimistic about the changes you’re going to make in your businesses and in your life.
Your goals have been set out, plans have been charted, resolutions have been made and guiding words and mantras have been selected.
But is it enough?
How many years have you told yourself that THIS IS IT!?
That this will finally be the year when you…
- leave that job
- start that business
- lose 5kg
- take up a new hobby
- improve your finances
- find romance
- make more time for yourself
- take a trip
- launch a new product
And yet, at the end of each year prior, you’ve been no closer to achieving these goals.
You’re not alone. Despite initial optimism, less than 50% of people follow through on their intentions and actually achieve what they set out to do.
So, where does it goes wrong?
The truth is, willpower alone can only take you so far.
Sometimes, you actually need to see it to believe it. And in seeing it, your brain becomes wired to ACT. You will start to take frequent and consistent action to turn your vision into reality.
And that’s why we’ve created this guide to vision boarding and goal setting, so that you are truly set up for success in the year ahead.
What’s in the guide?
First, you’ll start by revisiting your why, your values and your passions.
We’ll walk you through, step-by-step, how to translate this into a visual boards that represents your ambitions and, something that is not often spoken about in business, but that we believe is crucial…
How you want to FEEL!
You’ll end up with a meaningful, motivational, pretty picture but, our guide then takes things a bit further!
The next step will have you buckling down and working out HOW to turn your pictures into concrete goals.
Once you define these goals, you’ll learn exactly which steps you need to take in order, and in the correct order, to set yourself up for success and actually achieve them.
Imagine getting to December and realising that 2020 was the year you could say that you achieved it all?
What others have to say…
I am grateful for the Vision Boarding & Goal Setting guide. It helped me set myself for 2019, and look forward to a successful year. As a photographer, I am a visual person but I never thought of creating a vision board. The vision board activity helped me understand what I really want to accomplish this year. Setting goals requires understanding of who you are and asking yourself questions. I was able to deconstruct my goals and see them in a different view. I recommend this to everyone. ~ Jamila
For those who don’t know, a vision board is a sacred place that displays what you want in life. When you hang it in a space where you see it daily, your vision board brings your goals and aspirations to life. Goals are powerful, they focus attention on achieving desirable outcomes. I highly recommend this activity to anyone who is interested in growing their business. It was an insightful experience and it has made me more confident to implement new strategies to my business and make an immediate impact. ~ Tayba
Creating a vision board was such a great experience for me for two main reasons: the first is I got to spend 5 glorious hours with myself! I had the freedom to move at my own pace, follow the natural rhythms of my mind and body as I reflected and planned. This in itself is an absolute luxury for me, as a wife, mum of 2 and with a new business! The second is that though I didn’t quite finish my board, I came away with a much clearer picture of my ‘why’, because of thoughtful prompting questions like ‘How do you want to feel this year?’ and ‘what are the things that make life sweet for you?’. Vision-boarding is also a great creative exercise, even if it’s just cutting and sticking, I really enjoyed showing my husband and kids ‘my work’! ~ Cindy
I appreciated the presentation of a framework that allows one to evaluate their life – a set of guidelines. Many times we wish to have moments of self reflection but we lack the guiding framework. Even after the vision boarding and goal-setting experience, you can look at the self evaluation framework and rethink and keep refining your values. I have always wanted to develop a vision board but, for some reason I didn’t think I could do it. The Afri-love Connection Club helped me create one! What I love about having a vision board is that I use it to connect to the emotions behind the pictures. This jumpstarts my mind towards the actions needed to achieve the vision. ~ Elizabeth
