Don’t give up on your vision board when things don’t go exactly to plan.
It’s been years since I’ve had a vision board posted in my office. The truth is I gave up on my vision board a few years ago because things weren’t going the way I planned. I was struggling to find a job I loved, my writing contracts were not renewed and I was just, for lack of better word, Lost. My creative energy tank was bone dry and I had no interest in pursuing all the goals I had for this blog, for my writing or my photography.
At the time I had no need for a vision board, because at the time it felt like none of my visions would ever come true. And I was very liberal with board; I had items I knew were attainable, some that could be possible and some that would take a miracle to achieve. I wasn’t unreasonable at all… I apparently just had a very long span of bad luck that spread like a cold in a preschool classroom.
In fact it wasn’t until this past weekend that I started to see the benefits of a vision board. Recently I was promoted at work to a position that I had on my vision board before people started talking about vision boards.
When I was in college, trying to figure out what I wanted to do with my life, I ripped out an article in Essence magazine. The article was about a young female executive that worked at Sony Entertainment (maybe music). She was the Senior Digital Producer at Sony Entertainment and I was so interested in her position I held onto the magazine article for years. While I can’t remember her name or the exact title, I do know that it was in the same range as what I’m doing now. Which means I have achieved one of my goals from my vision board.
Now I just need to work on shaping abs like Brooke Burke and start saving for my Volkswagon Toureg. I’m open for compromise I would take a Toyota Highlander instead.
