“For me, a happy ending is not everything works out just right and there is a big bow, it’s more coming to a place where a person has a clear vision of his or her own life in a way that enables them to kind of throw down their crutches and walk”. – Jill McCorkle
Get rid of limitations!
There is a certain danger to thinking that we cannot achieve our goals, and not making a solid plan to follow through to do so.
One day I’ll get in good shape, you tell yourself. One day I’ll get that job I always wanted. One day I’ll go back to school and start doing what I really want to do.
What is keeping you from doing any of these things today? Money, education, or skill?
One secret to achieving these dreams is to take the first step in the right direction.
Living your dreams and having joy is not a system that allows you to make a wish and simply wake up in your ideal life. It involves positive thinking, taking action, belief in yourself, dreams and dedication.
Do you want to know what I have noticed to be a BIG problem in having the life you want? Its lack of clarity. We think in pictures and many of us have no real picture of WHAT we want our life to look like in our dreams. We need to set the GPS system for our brains. Enter the Vision Board.
A Vision Board is a fun tool in which you put together a series of pictures, words, and ideas that visually represent your dreams. It sets our mental GPS so we have a vision of where we want to go. I have created several of them in my life and they are an AMAZING tool.
You can achieve anything you put your mind to—don’t ever forget that. All you have to do is take that first step, which sometimes is getting clear!
Cheering for your Joy!
