Happy New Year friends! Setting goals at the start of the new year is one of the best ways to set yourself up for success. At the beginning of the year, I like to take the time to set very specific goals because the more specific, the more likely I am to move towards the right direction of reaching them. Those of you who know about The Law of Attraction know what I mean! A great way to visualize your goals and intentions is a vision board. I love to get creative with mine and recommend you do too! If you’ve never made one before, read below for some tips on how to get started.
Tips for Setting Goals:
- Find a comfortable environment and get clarity.
- Determine your goals and write them down.
- Are they short-term (i.e 6-months-1 year) or long-term? (i.e 5-10 years)
- Visualize where you want to be and why.
- Make a plan.
- Share your goals with friends to hold yourself accountable.
- Take action.
- Enjoy the process. Life is a journey. It’s okay to say no to things that don’t fit your vision.
- Reward yourself when you reach certain milestones.
Creating your vision board:
To manifest your goals, you should be able to see them. Creating an aesthetically pleasing board to look at daily makes it much more fun. Start with 3-5 goals to gather images and objects that symbolize them. For example, if you want to bring more serenity into your year, add images like sunsets, beaches, your favorite neutral colors, etc. If you want to travel more, gather images of airplanes, plane tickets, stylish suitcases – you get the idea!
Remember to review and reassess your goals. It’s okay to change your goals as you grow. We are constantly evolving.
The most important thing is to begin. We all have to start somewhere and the new year is a great excuse to work towards every goal you’ve ever dreamed of achieving. So get excited, get motivated, and start! To make it a bit easier, I included 2 free printables for you to fill & display somewhere you can see everyday.
We’re in this together!
