Check out my revamped vision board below! On the right are things that keep me focused and motivated, such as notes from friends and family – so I left room to continue adding things, because Lord knows there are days when I need it! I then have my immediate Next Step and below that, a printout of my Goal Map.
How big is your vision? And by “big”, I don’t mean it has to be this massive life change or something so extreme – I mean big, as in, important to you. How bad do you want it?
The days pass quickly, and I don’t say that to send you into a state of panic or discouragement, but I say it to encourage you to find what works to keep you motivated and on track. Surround yourself with those who understand how important your vision is to you and those that will push you to bring that vision to fruition.
It is important to learn the balance between acknowledging and dwelling. Things aren’t quite the way you thought they’d be today, this week or this season of your life? Do what you need to do in terms of acknowledging it, but don’t dwell.
Cry, let out a good scream, write it out, tell someone. Then, dust yourself off, hold your head high and establish what needs to be done to keep pressing on!
Situations aren’t always black and white. Majority of the time, human instinct is to judge others, assume and immediately form a perspective that is one-sided, biased or tainted by stereotypes, ignorance and the views/opinions of others.
Each day I challenge myself (and I challenge you, too!) to keep an open mind. To understand that we all have environments, situations and choices that are consistently molding us and pulling us in many directions.
Truth is, we are ALL trying to figure out “life.” We all have our own demons. We all experience fear. We all experience stress. We all experience anger. We all experience confusion, regret, humiliation, etc … We may experience different circumstances, but a lot of the sameemotions.
We, as humans, are so much more similar than different.
Let’s stop judging. Let’s stop hating. Let’s stop choosing to see the bad over the good. Dare to continue learning about different cultures and things of this world that will allow you to open your mind, see the positive, expand your perspective and grow as a human being.
