2017 Vision Board + Resolutions

 In Health


How the hell is it 2017 already?

Every single year, millions of people fall under the same”New Year, New Me” bullshit but NOT ME! For a couple of years now, I’ve stopped making resolutions but instead have made a ritual in making a vision board. A vision board helps me visualize my dreams and goals for the year to come. This year, my vision board focuses on  values that’ll help me reach success, not just in business, but also in my personal life. For so long, I’ve focused on materialistic objects that have never taught me an ounce of how to reach success and maintain it.

Some of the values that I’ll be working EXTRA hard this year in  implementing on a daily basis are:

♦ Balance

♦ Confidence

♦ Focus

♦ Optimism

♦ Flexibility

♦ Organization

These are not just random values I’ve picked out. Each of these are ones  that I have struggled to maintain throughout my life and have cost me, professionally and personally.  I truly believe that if I make a habit of using these values, my entire life will change. I also added a couple of other simple quotes and pictures that mean so muc to me, including my little family! After all, my family is my “why” in everything that I do.

I spent zero, yes ZERO, money in making my vision board this year.  I searched every inch of my home to find what I needed. Not only did I want to keep it simple but I’m also on a budget and cannot afford to spend money that I just don’t have. The only thing I spent was time.

The corkboard I used was a purchase I made a few years ago, when I first started making vision boards. If you don’t have a corkboard, INVEST in one. If you can’t invest in one, use cardboard or head on over to your nearest dollar store. The dollar store has tons of boards that you can use for your own vision board.  You can use pushup pins, tape, or, in my case, velcro. I used a combination of pushup pins and velcro to help keep everything in place. The Success magazines and motivational cards were both gifted in the last year and worked perfectly in complimenting  my 2017 vision board. The motivational cards will be changed on a weekly basis so that I continue inspiring myself as the days go on and my motivation starts to dwindle.

Now don’t get me wrong, if resolutions have worked for you, KUDOS! But they haven’t for me and for thousands of people who go into the new year with high hopes. Check out the video below for a quick chit chat  and the real reason why I believe resolutions are an epic fail.

This year is  going to be nothing short of amazing, I feel it!

I hope you are all having an amazing first week of  2017. Remember to work on improving yourself and the skills you need to reach your goals/resolutions/vision boards, whether it’s weight loss, balancing life, or even in your business. Also never forget that life is not a sprint but a marathon. Take your own pace and STOP THE COMPARISONS!

Oh, and love your fucking self.

    OMG Amy! I love your straightforwardness. I don’t like resolutions either. And I really appreciate your vision board using what you already have. That is epic creativity. I look forward to reading more of your blogs. Cheers! 🙂

    thanks for the vision board directions Amy – I believe also that the vision is what pulls you. I think the word “resolution” does not have the same meaning that it has in the past. Yes great advice — build a vision

      Thank you, Baxter! Resolutions have always failed for me. The word scares me now. I LOVE “vision” instead because on values that will help me succeed in life, not just the temporary!
