What do you see when you imagine your dream life?

If you were to look one year ahead – even five or ten years – what would you see?

Would you have pursued the job of your dreams? Would you have mastered the hobby you have been nervous to start? Would you have gained control over your health and fitness like you’ve told yourself you would? Would you have published the book you’ve so badly wanted to write? Would you have achieved financial freedom and invested in the vacation home that you always wanted to have?

Each of us have different goals, aspirations, and desires but what’s most important to consider is: are you in pursuit of your goals and dreams?

If you aren’t, then it’s time to cast your vision.

We often have so many other competing responsibilities that we hold off making time to dream or envision what the life of our dreams looks like.

Perhaps you are living it. If so, way to go! But if you aren’t, and you are caught in the daily grind we call life, I encourage you to find 30-minutes this next week to sit in quiet and think. Really think. Think about what your life looks like in one – five – or ten years.

Here are some questions to help prompt your brainstorm.

  • What goals are you working toward – in your personal life, family, career?
    • What do you want? What do you need?
  • When you imagine reaching your goals, what does your life look like?
  • What images, words and phrases represent your life when you have achieved your goals?
  • What will it take to reach your goal?
  • How will the process of reaching your goal change you?

Now, grab a piece of paper (or make a note in your phone) and write down all that comes to mind. What is lighting you up with excitement? Or, what’s making your stomach churn with nervousness? Write it all down. Every little and BIG thing.

Next, cast your vision! There are many ways to do this but my favorite is creating a physical vision board that you can see and reflect on daily. All you need is a poster board, some motivational pictures or sayings that reflect what you wrote down from your 30-minute brainstorm, some tape and time to commit to assembling your board.

This can be powerful! Personally, I created my dream job and have gotten into the best shape of my life after developing a vision board two years ago.

Create your own vision board or hire me to host a vision board party.
