The cliche ‘your destiny is in your own hands’ means exactly what it said. Only us can change our lives for good. Trying to live someone else’s dream is an effort in futility. Learning to live to the fullest begins with unleashing your specific purpose and your personal potential. You must decide what your personal mission statement is starting right now, one that embodies your values, your ambitions and your long-term goals. Put these ambitions in form of a vision board. With a personal mission statement you have a foundation on which to build your future aspirations and internal guide for everyday living and success.
In the event that you are lost, distracted or pulled towards another direction, your vision board serves as an internal compass to keep you centered and focused on your objectives. If you can see it, you can achieve it. The vision board reminds you of the goals you have set. Placing your vision board in front of you as a daily reminder is a continual source of motivation. If you spend a great deal of time in the office, use your computer to send yourself “to do” reminders via e-mails. Paste your vision board in places that you spend a lot of time in like your home , office and even the car. This helps you to visualize a clear path of where you want to go and how you are going to get there.
