I've had a dream board for years. It includes magazine articles that inspire me, printed comments from my blog from both my Mom and Dad that said how proud they were of me, it had photos of the Ironman finish line and of course, my Ironman registration letter.
The idea behind a dream board is to be clear about the vision you have for your life by identifying specifically those things you want. By making these dreams present in your everyday life you can, even by way of newspaper clippings, magazine photos, inspirational quotes or images that motivate you, make these dreams a reality.
Now I'm going to try something new, I am going to create my first online dream board. It's not going to replace the physical one in my house (if it ain't broke... don't fix it!), but I do want to try and encourage others to create their own dream boards. So here goes.
The Original Dream Board: The List
- Write a book
- See the world
- Own a business
Written on my hand during my first full marathon in Honolulu 2006. I had to glance that this a few times that day and it did it's job. I completed my first marathon there in Hawaii, and five years later, I completed the Ironman.
five year goal at the beginning of 2010, I am planning to see either India or Africa in 2011.
My plans to own a business are ongoing. Continue to read my blog for how my life is evolving and could be turning towards business ownership in the near future.
I hope that helps motivate you to create your own! What's on your dream board? I'd love to hear about it email me!
