Have you ever wondered why New Year’s resolutions are
forgotten by 80% of the people who make them?
I have. I’m one of the 80%.
What I’ve concluded is that people feel pressured into making resolutions to make themselves feel better or to find more balance in their lives. Yet, in reality, for example, a desired promotion could result in more hours to their 80+ work week. Or, if you make a resolution to eat better in the new year, you may be too busy to shop or to cook.
To put it bluntly, people don’t make resolutions that fit with their underlying values or desires at that time in their life!
Serendipitously, I found a solution for myself.
A few years ago, a friend invited me to make a “vision board” with her and a few of her friends. As I gathered images and words that attracted me (which made me feel balanced and happy) I arranged them on a board.
As a result, I was completely drawn into the process that the power of vision enables, which is to allow the person to access their unconscious to uncover their deepest desires and dreams.
Once I made the “vision board.” I placed it where I could see it every day so I could “see” what I desired.
A few months into the year, I realized many of my own dreams. Ironically, before the end of the year I accomplished all my goals!
Now, I am completely sold on the process of vision, so much so that I have now added a Vision Board Workshop – “Visioning Your Deepest Dreams” to my Creative Workshop offerings.
Allow yourself the opportunity to envision your dreams in 2014 and picture yourself in a place of happiness and peace.
Please join me on January 30th for “Visioning Your Deepest Dreams – A Vision Board Workshop Beyond visioning this workshop will teach you how to manifest your dreams.
