If you have dreams of one day doing great things, achieving great success and looking back on your life with pride, then it is important that you stay focused on the job in hand. Perhaps one day you wish to have a family or run your own successful business like Lloyd Claycomb, maybe you want to own a Ferrari or travel to some far flung corner of the globe.
Whatever your dreams are, small or large, you need to have a way of achieving them and one of the best ways which I have found is to create a dream board. If you haven’t heard of this before, it is a board with images, words and photos which represent what your dreams are, and here is why you should have one.
Life can often get in the way and we lose sight of what our dreams are, this is where a dream board comes in and it will help you to remain focused on what you are striving for. It is best to place your dream board in a location where it will be seen by you each day, if you do this then you can never forget what you are working towards and you will be able to stay focused on your goals.
A dream board will be filled with inspirational words and motivational pictures which genuinely feel as though they are staring at you asking ‘why don’t you have me yet’? It is this feeling of being questioned that can help you to stay driven when it comes to going after your dreams and a board such as this gives you real accountability when it comes to the success or failure of getting your dreams.
Picture the scene, you wake up in the morning, a day of work ahead, get out of bed feeling uninspired, lacking energy and desire. You go to the bathroom, or you’re just about to head out of the front door and you see your dream board, you see images of the house you want, the car you want and the life you want and you become instantly motivated to go and get the day. This is the purpose of a dream board and if you want to find a way to get motivated then this is how to do it.
To Make You Think
Whilst the function of a board such as this is to get you motivated, driven and make you accountable, there is also another great benefit which takes place in the creation of the dream board itself. The thing is, when you are putting together something like this, you are forced to sit back and take into consideration what you really want from life. Many of us fail to stop and think genuinely what exactly we view as success and what we want to achieve from our years on this planet. Making a dream board will shine the spotlight on you and force you to make important decisions.
