At the center of your being you have the answer;
You know who you are and you know what you want.
Last night I fell asleep praying, and had a dream of a vision board. I have never made one, but I guess it was a sign that I need to. For those that don't know a vision board is a place where you paste or collage images that represent your goals and/or vision for your life.The idea behind it is that when you surround yourself with images of who you want to become, what you want to have, where you want to live etc. your life changes to match those images and desires.
I recently read the book The Slight Edge by Jeff Olsen. It was a paradigm shift. There are so many gems of wisdom in it. Read it for yourself, and you will understand. One of his motto's is "easy to do, easy not to do." He puts goal development into five categories: health, finances, relationships, personal development, my life. I like that he guides you through identifying a simple task to start, and the price to pay to achieve your goals. I bring this up because I use his techniques and philosophy to approach everything now, and am incorporating it into my vision board.
So this is what I have so far....
