Day to day activities distract us and we lose site of our big picture, the one we dreamt about when we are given an opportunity to reset at the start of a New Year.  A Vision Board is a great tool to help you stay on track with your New Year's goals.  What is a Vision Board?  It's a board where you display images and words that represent what you want to be, what you want to do, or what you want to have in your life.  So, take a moment and think about those goals that you set for yourself at the beginning of the month.  Now grab a pen and paper and write them down.  Grab some magazines, maybe some printouts with inspirational quotes, and start collecting the images and words that represent your goals for the year.  Cut them out, arrange them on a board and glue them in place.  Place your vision board where you can see it.  And here ae the three reasons why you made this vision board:

1. It will provide clarity. When your goals are clearly defined, there is a greater chance that you'll take the action steps your need to get you where you want to go.

2. It will serve as a daily dose of motivation. Seeing the phrases and the words you've chosen for your vision will serve as positive affirmations that will silence those little voices in your head that tell you otherwise.

3. It will keep you focused. No matter what your day brings you, your vision board will serve as a reminder of where you intend to be. Your attention and energy will have direction.  

So, make that vision board and and make 2018 everything you want it to be!
